Did Not Finish #1

Hi folks!

For today's post, I want to share with you those books I did not finish. If you will notice from my review index, I only review those books I give 3-5 stars to. And of course, I don't like everything I read.  Most of the ones included are review books that I was not able to finish for various reasons. This is the first time I will be posting such a list, so here it goes...


1. Don't Forget Me Bro by John Michael Cummings- The book is about mental health and child abuse. I have no problem reading about such topics, but the way the book is written made my reading experience dragging. It also made me feel really heavy. Thus, I had to stop reading. I may pick it up again, though, some time in the future. But I'm not quite sure.


2. Jonas Salk: A Life by Charlotte DeCroes Jacobs- This one is a biography. I liked reading about Jonas Salk's life. It was actually inspiring, but the book is about 500 pages. And it's something I only read whenever I was in the mood. My copy was from NetGalley so it just expired. But if given a free copy, I would read it again. It'll probably take me a long time to finish, but I will read it. Haha!


3. The Sly Company of People Who Care by Rahul Bhattacharya- This book is an okay read. It's character-driven and thought-provoking. However, it got dragging towards the middle, so I decided to give it a rest.


4. This is the Night by Jonah C. Sirott- The premise sounds nice and interesting, thus I requested it on NetGalley. But when I started reading, I just couldn't connect with the characters. Thus, I had to put it down.


5. What We Salvage by David Baillie- What made me request this book was the cover. Haha! The premise is also interesting. But upon reading, I couldn't understand the events. I could not follow what's happening. And if I remember correctly, there were words/slang I couldn't understand.


6. Lament for the Afterlife by Lisa L. Hannett- Same reason as What We Salvage. Interesting plot. Couldn't understand anything. -_-

That's all folks for my recent DNF list.

Thoughts?
Have a nice day! :)
