Jaime's Top Ten Books I Almost Put Down But Didn't
(No particular order!):
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry
Boring... Dragging... BUT, I finished it. It was an interesting premise, but it just didn't work

Glimpse by Stacey Wallace Benefiel
I struggled through this one, but there were enough interesting things going on that I kept reading. Never finished the series though.

Fracture by Megan Miranda
I know so many people loved this one, but it just ticked me off

Forbidden by Syrie James & Ryan M. James
I didn't really get hooked but I finished it... The cover is pretty!

Auracle by Gina Rosati
I wanted more action, less of the romance. I liked it enough to finish it, though. 

The Dead and Buried  by Kim Harrington
I was expecting more scary, ghosty scenes. Not a bad book though, if you don't go in with those expectations.

Poison Princess by Kresley Cole
Don't hate me, but I just didn't like it. I tried hard though! I finished it. I actually really loved the last chapter, so hopefully the rest of the series won't end up on a list like this one!

Wake by Amanda Hocking
Just. Not. Good...

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
This book seemed like it would never end.... So much STUFF, and most of it wasn't necessary to the story. 

Wings series by Aprilynne Pike
This was the worst love triangle in my history of love triangles. It made me so very angry. I honestly cannot recall being as ticked off with a series as I was with this one. SUCH a great story, and I loved it, but that almost ruined it for me. The final book, Destined, was pretty amazing though!

These were before I finally realized that I can DNF a book. I just could not do it, until recently. Even now, I have a really hard time with it. Sometimes, you just have to though!


  1. The Starcrossed series actually gets better. I really disliked the first book too, but it was mostly because the writing wasn't good. Actually, the second book of the series is my favorite. The love triangle WAS pretty stupid in the Wings series and really very pointless, even though it seemed to be the focal point of the novels. And I'm so glad I'm not the only one that didn't enjoy Fracture!! The main character just made me so angry and not in a good way; the cover is so gorgeous though. I kept looking back at the cover and thinking, why can't you be as pretty as your cover? Lol, great list! I have some of these for review, but I'll read them one day.

    1. Thank you for letting me know that I am not alone in disliking Fracture! I honestly thought it was just me, and I was going to get some serious flack for adding this to my list! I may have to give the Starcrossed series another shot, if you say it gets better. Doesn't it make it all the more disappointing when a bad story has such a GREAT cover?! Thanks so much for the comment!
