I posted this in the book group but I wanted more opinions.

What are some books that you just couldn't finish? For me, if a book doesn't hook me right away, I don't force myself to read it. Life's too short. Especially if its something I didn't pay for.

Some books I couldn't finish are Deck Z, The Host, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Casual Vacancy and the first Game of Thrones

I started 50 Shades of Grey last weekend, it's very painful to read. I can't believe so many people love this book. The writing...gah.

Rooms. It actually made me sick to my stomach. I tried a few times to finish it, but would get sick every time.

 I love Stephen King but there are a few of his books that just drone on and on about characters personalities etc..... Just skimmed thru a lot of DOME cause Geebus...... and THE STAND......... another that talks in circles LOL

The girl with the dragon tattoo was one I couldn't finish either. My MIL went on & on about it but I just didn't care for it.

Jane Eyre. I know it's a classic & God knows I tried but I just couldn't get into it

I hate not finishing books so I always force myself to finish them. Which is not good when it is part of a series because then I make myself finish the series. lol I have thrown a few across the room when I was done with them. lol A few times I have stopped and read other books in between, but I usually finish them.
