T5W: Books you didn't finish
So. I am new to this blog thing but I saw this group on Goodreads where every wednesday there's a top 5 related to books and I thought it was cool. I don't know if I'll be able to enter every single week (we have talked about how much of a procrastinator I am!) but I will enter whenever I can.
This challenge was invented by Lainey and you can learn everything and anything about it here!
And now for the Top 5 Books I Did Not Finish! (oooh).
1. Persuasion by Jane Austen.
Jane Austen? The answer would be me. I really disliked this book and after carrying it around in my backpack for like 2 years worth of uni and only getting to the middle of the book, I decided to drop it. I didn't like the writing, I didn't like the characters and every single conception about how women should behave and of what a family should be just drove me nuts. So there.
2. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.
I adooooooooore Les Mis, and by that I mean that I have seen
the show once, the movie twice and I listen to the soundtrack on repeat. I love the story, I truly do but I just CAN'T with the book. It's has way too many discriptions and the fact that I know nothing about the society of the time and the book is very political just turns it less interesting for me. I tell myself that I will finish this book one day (someday, very far far away) but for now it's just a nice base for my bedside lamp (Sorry, Victor Hugo pal).
3. 1984 by George Orwell.
4. The Queen's Fool by Philippa Gregory.
5. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare.
Et voilá! Which 5 books did you never finish? Leave your lists down bellow!!! Let's hate on books and stories together (kind of, not really because books are friends!).
