Books That Took You the Longest to Finish:
For this week’s topic, I’m gonna change it up a bit.
I’m going to use books that I’ve read, but they sat on the
shelf for what seemed like FOREVER, before I picked them up!
I’ve had books sitting on my shelf long than these, but
sadly, I STILL haven’t read them!
1.) Remember To Forget by Ashley Royer.
I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf since FEBRUARY,
and I barely read it! Too bad it was a dud! 😦
Click the cover, to read my review. 🙂
2.) Thirty Days To Thirty by Courtney Psak.
It took me FOREVER to read this book! I got it all the way
back in January, and I barely picked it up in July. That means
it took me about SIX months to get to! Sadly, this one was
also a dud…Click the cover for my review.
3.) The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti.
This one was sitting on my shelf for almost 3 months, before
I read it…This one also seems to have been a dud…Does anyone
else see some sort of pattern!? 😉 Click cover for my review! 😀
4.) The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak.
Got this Arc in August (2015), and I didn’t read it until December.
I ended up having to buy an eBook for cheap because my Net Galley
expired! Sadly I didn’t really care for it…It was SO cheesy, and SO
predictable! I wasted a whole $2! 😉 Click cover for my review! 🙂
5.) Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang.
I can’t even remember when I bout this eBook! I have a
feeling that is was WAY before I started my blog in 2014. To
fit with the unintentional theme, this one also wasn’t anything
special…I don’t think it lived up to it’s hype. Click cover for review!

I haven’t read any of them so that’s a good thing. I really like cover 1 and 3 though so I might have picked them up anyway if you didn’t point out that they are ‘duds’.
Sorry! Those are some good covers. Too bad the story doesn’t match.
How long exactly did it take to read these books?
Remember To Forget – 2 Days.
Lizzie Lovett – 2 Days.
Thirty Days – 3 Days.
Falling Into Place – Can’t remember.
Heartbreakers – 1 Day
They didn’t take long to read, but like I said above, it took me FOREVER to pick them up, after getting them! 🙂
Sometimes it takes me a while to pick up a book, especially if it looks intimidating!
My problem is that I end up always finding a book that I want to read more. So all the other books just sit there for MONTHS! 🙂
Nice list , sadly i haven’t heard about any of those books – here’s my T5W for the week 🙂 https://ablogaboutbook.wordpress.com/2016/10/05/top-5-wednesday-8-books-that-took-you-the-longest-to-finish/
It does always seem like the books that take the longest to read are the ones I don’t end up liking…unless of course it’s just a honking big book :).
I have so many books I own and haven’t touched yet! Also I love the Totoro on your sidebar, it’s so cute just strolling in place!!
I know! He is too cute! 😀
It’s so sad to hear that these book were duds 😅
I know that all of the books on your list were duds, but agh the covers are so pretty! I guess that just proves that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover aha
Loved your top five! If you’re interested you can find mine by clicking on this link.
I know! I do that a lot! (judge books by their covers) so, I need to stop that! 😉
