Books I’ve Started But Never Finished | Part 1

Books I've Started But Never Finished.png

Hey guys!

If I finished all of the books I start reading, I wouldn’t have any trouble achieving my yearly Goodreads goal. Alas, I’m such a mood reader that if I’m struggling to read a book, I find it difficult to power through and finish it – even if I’m super close to the end. It’s really frustrating to read the majority of a book, only to lose the motivation to finish the final chapters, which is what I frequently do.

Since this is something I’ve struggled with for a few years now, I thought it would be interesting to look back at the books I’ve started but not finished and write a blog post about it. Due to the amount of books I found for this post, I’m splitting it into two parts: books that I’d still like to read, and books I’m not interested in trying to finish anymore. Today I’m talking about the books I’d like to finish reading!

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1)

Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I didn’t get very far into this book, but the story was told in such a unique format that I was instantly intrigued! I think I just picked this one up at the wrong time, so I’d definitely like to give it ago again soon.


The Queen of the Tearling (The Queen of the Tearling, #1)


The Queen of the Tearling (#1) by Erika Johansen

This was a book I started years ago after I bought it on a whim at a bookstore. I think it’s a NA book, which is probably why I wasn’t as interested in it a few years ago, but I think it’s a book I’d really enjoy now!



Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows #2) by Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows is one of the best YA fantasy books I’ve read, so I can’t believe I haven’t read this sequel yet! I tried to read it when I wasn’t in the mood for a fantasy, but I’m hoping to get round to it soon.



Queen of Air and Darkness (The Dark Artifices, #3)

Queen of Air & Darkness (The Dark Artifices #3) by Cassandra Clare

Cassandra Clare is one of my favourite authors, and The Mortal Instruments series made me the reader I am today. But I started this book when I was definitely in reading slump city, and still haven’t managed to power through it. I will get round to this one at some point though!


Ink and Bone (The Great Library, #1)

Ink & Bone (The Great Library #1) by Rachel Caine

Rachel Caine is an amazing author (definitely an all-time fave of mine!) and wonderful human being, so whilst I haven’t finished this book yet, I’m definitely going to! I remember really enjoying the first few chapters I read, and know I’ll enjoy it when I come back to it.



There are so many books on my Goodreads TBR shelf that I’m sure there are more I could’ve included in this list, but I might post about them another time. I’ll be publishing the second part of this post soon, where I talk about the books I’ve started but no longer want to finish reading!

What books have you started but never finished? Have you read any of the books above?

Thanks For Reading!-4
