Before y'all get bent out of shape, this is just a few of the books that *I* couldn't finish. Just because I didn't like them doesn't mean that someone else didn't.
I tried really hard to get through this one. I really did. I just couldn't. The noir thing just doesn't do it for me and I really didn't see a lot of teen appeal. Plus, I had trouble following the story and caring about the characters. I think I got about halfway through this one.
I picked this one up because the kids were raving about it. I don't know if it's my age or what, but I just can't read books that have *that* many different fonts. I could barely see the emails let alone understand them.
I think I got through 2 chapters. I'll take the kids word for it!
I tried listening to this one because a friend recommended it. I got through a little more than half of it before I gave up. The problem is that I just didn't care. I didn't know for whom I should be rooting and why. And in the end, I decided that I just didn't care to see what happened.
I tried this one before I gave up trying Printz winners just because of the seal. I got through about a chapter of it before i gave up. I just couldn't follow the jumble of events. Maybe I'll try it again later. Or maybe not.
I tried this one mainly because it looked funny. It was a while ago, but I remember thinking that the author kept saying the same thing over and over again to explain the plight of vampires. Blah blah. Who else is sick of vampires? I think I got through 5 chapters.
Does anyone else have a list of shame like this? :)
