Top Ten Tuesday: The Last Ten Books I Abandoned

Hi all my Bookworms!

How are you all?

My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.

The second week of May already?  Can you believe it?  So far May is turning out to be a really good month.  I hope that you are enjoying the content that I am writing.  I am, like always enjoying writing it.

It is Tuesday again,  if you haven’t noticed already, and that means one thing. Top Ten Tuesday.  Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme originally created by The Broke and The Bookish in 2010 and switched to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018.  Each week we are given a different topic.  This week the topic is ‘the last ten books I abandoned’.

I rather think this is a difficult topic and I want to say that I have a full ten on this list but I honestly don’t.  I think the books I haven’t finished I just don’t remember.

I hope you don’t judge me too harshly on the book I put below and I honestly want to go back and finish them … eventually.


  1. House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas House of Earth and BloodGoodreads
  2. Eragon by Christopher Paolini EragonGoodreads
  3. Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas The Empire of StormsGoodreads
  4. Wildwood Academy (Wunderkids #1) by Jacqueline Silvester Wildwood AcademyGoodreads
  5. Last Bus to Woodstock by Colin Dexter Last Bus To WoodstockGoodreads
  6. Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie Murder on the Orient ExpressGoodreads

What books have you recently abandoned?  Go on I really want to know.  No shame here.

Leave you thought and link to your blog in the comments down below.

Stay home. Stay safe.

And until next time, happy reading.

    1. I’ve tried reading it so many times as a kid and I got further into it this time than I had previously and I hoped I would finish it, but maybe it just isn’t to be

  1. One of the last books I DNF’ed was a French novel called ‘Strike Your Heart.’ It had potential but also had the subtlety of a sledgehammer. I’m all for being comfortable with not finishing books you don’t like, life’s too short to waste your time on stuff you’re not enjoying. 🙂

    1. With all of these books, it wasn’t that I didn’t like them. In fact I loved what I’d read of the Agatha Christie, but life and other things got in the way. They were literally abandoned, not DNFed

  2. I TOTALLY understand why you have House of Blood & Earth on there. The first 150 pages are total info dumps but I promise that it gets so much better after that. Unless you got past that and just don’t like it… that’s okay too!

  3. It is in a way very refreshing to see Christie on that list. Nothing against Agatha, many of her books are masterpieces, but I tend to get tired when people behave as though she alone was GAD. I was shocked to read that book by Dexter too. Had heard such good things about it but the sexist protagonist didn’t appeal to me at all. I did finish it, however. 😀

    Thanks for visiting my blog and the follow. Hope you enjoy the posts.

  4. Same with Eragon! I tried it when it was new and everyone was raving about it, but it wasn’t my jam at all. And full of stereotypes. I don’t mind a couple. I like certain tropes. But this…. it felt like it had ALL OF THEM 😀

    I also couldn’t warm up to Sarah J. Maas. Just not for me.
