Books I attempted but never continued

These are not DNF books because I never got past the 2nd chapter, which is too short of a length to really decide I’m never going to finish the book.  None of these books I stopped because I hated them, it was just the wrong time or I just wasn’t interested in the book.  That latter case makes it seem like it should be a DNF but because I never got a significant portion of the way through the book I consider these books as ‘attempted’ not DNF.  Kind of like the first chapter challenge, you wouldn’t say that you DNF’ed the books you didn’t end of reading because you were determining your next read based on a small part of the book.

Matched – Ally Condi

Allegiant – Veronica Roth**

Kiss of Deception – Mary E Pearson

Sabriel – Garth Nix

The Diviner – Melanie Rawn

Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss

Starflight – Melissa Landers

Pathfinder – Orson Scott Card

A Mortal Song – Megan Crewe

The Defender’s Apprentice – Amelia Smith

**This one is actually likely a DNF because I got about a page in and decided I couldn’t stand reading another book in the weird 1st person PoV with the weird verb tenses Roth uses.  But I decided this based on less then a page of reading…
