Books I Started Reading Months Ago (and Haven’t Picked Up Since)

Books I started reading in 2020 and never picked up again. Hahaha. Oops?


Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer

about me

when I stopped reading it: I’m an atmospheric reader, so when late June came around, I started to pick up summer books. (June 19 was the last time I picked up the book)

how far I got in it: 392 pages out of 756. (52%)

do I plan to dnf: No, I’ve enjoyed the book so far, it’s just intimidating to pick back up. SO MUCH LEFT.


LadyBird (2017)

Swimming in the Dark by Tomasz Jedrowski

about me

when I stopped reading: July 5.

how far I got: 137 pages out of 208. (65%)

do I plan to dnf: This one I’m super ashamed of not finishing. I LOVED IT while I was reading it but the historical information kept me reaching for it over cute summer contemporaries. I WILL FINISH THIS! NOT SURE WHEN THO…


The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

about me

when I stopped reading: May 3, 2020.

how far I got: page 8 out of 180 (4%). I guess I put it down as fast as I picked it up.

do I plan to dnf: It’s not that I didn’t like it but I know the story already. I’ll continue when I’m in the mood.


Hocus Pocus (1993)

Crescent City: House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J Maas

about me

when I stopped reading: This was the first book I bought during the pandemic. So I bought it around June (?) and stopped reading it around that time too…

how far I got: page 22 out of 803. (2%)

do I plan to dnf: No. I do have a hard time reading fantasy because of the all the new terms you have to learn, plus this book is a big one.


yes, this if from big time rush…

What books have you not picked up in months? Or even years? The book that’s been on my currently reading the longest (over a year) is The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
