Abandoned in 2021

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)
