Sorta DNF Mini Reviews!

Hi friends! So this is literally going to be what the title says: reviews for sorta DNF’s!

What’s a sorta DNF, you may ask?

Unofficially? It’s me picking up an audiobook from Overdrive to waste an hour, and promptly forgetting about it until it automatically returns. Officially? It’s books I didn’t finish because time and procrastination and due dates. Let us begin!

Why I DNF’d:

Um…I kinda picked up the audiobook and gave up after 40 minutes. BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE! I’ve found that I absolutely love the Wayward Children series, but only when it doesn’t take place in the “real world”. Every Heart A Doorway was not worth the hype for me but oh my starry night is Down Among the Sticks and Bones worth every word.

I DO STILL WANT TO READ THIS. But the audiobook expired, so I checked it out again, and proceeded to not listen to another word for a good two weeks. I honestly don’t think sci-fi is the best way to go when listening to audiobooks for me, because I get bored so easily. I really enjoyed the opening match but after that I lost interest. It wasn’t for lack of action, it was simply that I wasn’t engaged. Also there was a romance on the air and I ran for cover. I know.

Anna-Marie McLemore’s writing is gorgeous and lush and incredibly beautiful. Of course, library due dates called so it’s gone. And I didn’t get to finish the story and I’M SO SALTY. But seriously, this cover is beyond glorious. Besides the writing, I adored the sister relationship! But, I was also lowkey confused half the time because magical realism blurs the lines so well I can’t keep up. Who’s actually surprised though?

So that’s it! If there’s one lesson we can take away from this post, it’s that I suck at reading (listening to?) audiobooks. Tell me how you feel about these books!

  1. I’ve listened to audiobooks in the past, usually on a plane ride or sketching. Now I don’t listen to them at all because I find them boring when you’re listening to them, and I always end up not finished them because I have to return them.

  2. Ahahah I totally relate to this! I usually take out too many audiobooks at once and then start each of them a little bit? But then I only end up finishing a couple whereas the others I sort of forget about… oops. Blanca & Roja was so good! I totally know what you mean about getting confused though hahah, magical realism can be tricky. 🙈 I hope you end up enjoying these if/when you pick them up again! ❤
