Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m Glad I Didn’t DNF

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is supposed to be about books we’re glad we didn’t DNF too quickly. However, I’ve decided to switch up the topic yet again because I very rarely DNF books so there wouldn’t be much of a list with that theme. Instead, I’ll be sharing ten books I’m glad I didn’t DNF part way through. Sometimes it pays to stick with a book until the very end!

Which books are you glad you decided to keep reading? What do you think of the books on my list? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. I thought about DNFing A Streetcar Named Desire, but I was reading it for A Level so I couldn’t really 😛 I’m glad I finished it, but I didn’t like the treatment of women at all (although I know it was mostly to set up a social commentary about society of the time). Recently, I almost DNF’d The Smoke Thieves, but I don’t DNF books very often, so I carried on until the end. Sadly it didn’t live up to any of my expectations!

  3. I guess I am extremely good at DNFing books and really am struggling to think of a book I was glad I kept on reading. 🙈 I think some of the classics were hard to read but worth it in the end but I can’t remember quite which ones.. 😊

    I actually tried reading Dracula 🧛‍♂️ but also DNF it. It is just not for me I think.

    Great list! 😊
