Recent DNFs

I made a similar post about six months ago discussing why I think it is good to not finish books sometimes, as well as talking about reasons why I dropped a few books. I figured it was time to do it again because I have had a few notable books recently that I haven't finished.

Books I Had To Read For High School!

I was listening to a book podcast recently and they were talking about books they had to read for high school, or in the case of one of the hosts, didn't read. I was absolutely terrible at actually reading assigned books in high school and Sparknotes was my best friend! It's just a little ironic to me that someone who read so few of assigned books in school is such an avid reader now!

Well Met by Jen DeLuca

Where do I even start with a book this size? I considered breaking this up into multiple posts, but I wouldn't even know how to break it up. I went into this book used to Brandon's writing, so I tabbed a lot of things (look at the picture about) that I thought I would need to remember later on. I don't know if this necessarily help me in the future but I think it made me think more critically about what was happening.
