here are two:
The City of Bones - I only read the first 5 chapters, so it could've have gotten more interesting. I might give it another chance...
Uglies - I was too busy to finish it, by the time I got around to it, I forgot most of it

I never finished Uglies, I just found it boring and I couldn't get into it.
I didn't finish Impossible either because I had bought a bunch of new books that seemed much more fascinating.
Then there was Rose Madder by Stephen King, it was good and all I just was busy when I was reading it and I didn't have time to finish at the time and by the time I was able to read it again I wanted to move to something new.

Moby Dick- It...it didn't really get me. Like I didn't get hooked on it.
Journey to the Center of the Earth- I was only reading it until my book order came. Once I don't have any other books, I'll pick it up again. :3

i wasnt able to finish extras the last uglies novel by scott westerfeld. i just couldnt, it was so terrible i tried really hard and got a little more than halfway but then i gave up. i also tried readiing the host but couldnt get into it.

I know this is a really old classic, but HEIDI!
Also, I put down a Great and Terrible Beauty a long time ago, but I jus tpicked up again and finished it about 10 minutes ago, so now I like it. Yeah

I usually try to finish any book that I start, but I havent been able to finish Eragon (I'm not sure how that's spelled. sorry!). I got to page 60. And I know that's when it was just about to get good, but there are so many other books that sound more interesting. If anyone has read it and thinks I should try it again, please let me know. I don't like leaving books unfinished. Thanks!

I try to finish all books I read but some are just too boring or are eclipsed by other, more interesting books that I'm reading. I tend to not finish the books that my school requires us to read, like Into the Wild (Jon Krakauer) and The Great Gatsby (Scott Fitzgerald)...but I might get around to finished Gatsby someday. Someday. And I stopped reading Beautiful Creatures (Kami Garcia/Margaret Stohl) because imho I didn't like Lena at all and Ethan was a sort of pushover. Maybe I'll get back to these and other ones after I deplete my enormous to-be-read pile!

I really liked the Looking Glass Wars books, but I couldn't get very far in Archenemy. It's a shame because I really want to know what happened.

i never finished Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr
not that her other books were all that great, but this one was just ridiculous
it was just way too boring and i felt like the more i read, the further i got to finishing
there ain't no rest for the wicked.
05-11-2010 06:39 PM
I attempted to read Fragile Eternity as well. I do plan on reading something later. I agree it started out boring. I did read Ink Exchange, but it took me longer than it usually would because it took me a while to get into it.
A book I could never finish is The True Meaning of Cleavage. It was just awful. I couldn't get past the first couple of chapters. It wasn't what I thought it would be. The name is just wrong. It's not a good name for a book, nor was the book cover. I should of known I wouldn't like it before I even opened it.

ive been reading a lot latley...but it seems like out of every batch of books i get, i return or dont finish at least 1...ive had a book for like 2 months that should have interested me from the beggining...
i think the longer i have the book, the easier it is to put it on the back burner

The books I never finished were
The ones we read as a class
In ele. School.
I have a pile for them.
Holes was made In to a movie so what The point.
Maniac magee I tried to read, but it faulted.
There are more.
I think I had The book
Devilish. In this pile read it
over The summer. Rocked my world.
I read The thing saying it all
about selling your soul for popularity.
Not my kind of thing, but I was proved
Nor arm nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O be some other name!
What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet

My 4th 5th grade teacher would read holes to us at least once a year. I really liked that book when I was a kid (this was way before they came out with the movie) and recently went to go visit that teacher and she still reads holes to her class every year. The book is much better than the movie and well worth the time to read it.

I finish all the books i read now b/c i did not have my nook. I know I sound like a complete idiot, but no joke. I can not stay focused on anything if if it has nothing to do with technology. I am a complete tecno geek. If anyone else is please come forward.

I had to read a nonfiction book for english class. I never finished The Hiding Place. I think I got to page 97 before I had to turn it in to the library.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
