So . . . these four books aren’t bad. And I really, really want to say that I fully intend to finish them. But one of them has been half read for at least the majority of the year and two for at least six months. I read at least a third or more than half of each. But I think I need to officially call them abandoned. At least for now. Poor things . . . it was good while it lasted.
- Gym Candy by Carl Deuker
- Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
- The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje
- The Scent of Sake by Joyce Lebra
I’m not one to abandon books. But I need to move them off the shelf and try to not feel too guilty about it. Maybe I’ll retry another year (but just not this year).
