A short and simple post – convince me why I should give any of these a try again.
American Spy by Lauren Wilkinson – started off interesting, but just didn’t capture me
We Keep the Dead Close: A Murder at Harvard and a Half Century of Silence – couldn’t get into it
The Cold Millions
The Sun Collective
White Teeth – loved the beginning, gave up 50% of the way through
These Women by Ivy Pochado
Of Women and Salt – gave up 50% through. Had trouble keeping track of the characters and jumping back and forth. not enough exciting plot to keep hold.
How Beautiful We Were by Imbolo Mbue – read 20% but just could not get into the story even though I loved Behold the Dreamers
Peace Like a River
A Promised Land – amazing (especially because read by author), but TOO LONG
Seven Days in June – just didn’t keep it going for me.
The Enchanted April – SO boring and dated – read 30%
Celine – couldn’t get into it
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie – too adolescent
Dark Things I Adore – not interesting enough
Shoulder Season – maybe will take on again, but didn’t capture my interest in the moment
Velvet was the Night – couldn’t get into it (and hated previous book I read by this author)
