Not My Time!

It is difficult for me to give up on a book.  I've read many that I should have quit on far before reaching the end.  But I've decided life is too short to be held hostage by a bad book.  I'm giving myself permission to put them down.

This is my list:

The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe

I read more of this one than I should have.  Just not interesting.  I thought I'd get some great recommendations, but I'll never read what they read. 
I Shall Be Near To You by Erin Lindsay McCabe

This is one I will more likely than not return to.  I've enjoyed what I've read, probably about 1/4 to 1/3 of the book, but I'm thinking the timing is just not right. 
The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

Started as a book club selection I just couldn't get into it.  Dull and boring.  The one person who did read it felt it was a waste of time.

Coming Clean by Kimberly Rae Miller

I won this book on and it wasn't bad.  I think it may have been another timing thing.  I just got to a point where I put it down and never went back to it. 

Saturday Night Widows by Becky Aikman

I can't say why I didn't finish this one.  I am sure I was at least 80% through it and then just stopped.  I doubt I'll ever go back to it.
