Did Not Finish

I went through an obsessive phase of 3 books a week, and lately my patience has been crap. If I've got to wait to love it half way in was it that good? Am I crazy for abandoning these books? Share your thoughts below, or some books you didn't finish.

 I absolutely loved City of Bones. It was a little too long, but that was ok because this story was made for devouring. And the author took almost 2 years to release City of Heavenly Fire. As I've mentioned on this blogs tons of times, I hate the wait. When I started the last book I had lost all my passion for it and just couldn't finish it. And I'm not sure if I want to any more.

I'd wanted to read this book for some time. There it sat on my to read list with every excuse under the sun to avoid it. Finally I gave it a small chance. Blame it on the tension in my life at the moment, but I couldn't get into this book. I feel obligated to finish it, and had to force myself to keep going. When I realized life was too short. I just didn't have the patience Vale needed.

To be perfectly honest with myself, I couldn't force myself to love this book when other books I was SUPER excited about were just released. And it was the lack of a good love story. I very much want to find out how it ends so I might give it another try, maybe. One day. With the right recommendation. Lol

I'd read Looking For Alask with so much enthusiasm after The Fault In Our Stars and I just felt like it fell short of my expectation. I'm just a big romantic. And this was not the best love story. I should have understood Johns hate of happy endings. I didn't want to finish it, we just went to the movie. My husband loved the movie. He called the ending early and was very satisfied when he was right.

I only kind of liked the first book in this series "Birthmarked" The synopsis sounded intriguing and even the synopsis for this book.
"Meanwhile, two brothers claim her attention as they attempt to understand the environmental trap that keeps the people of Sylum captive, and suddenly Gaia must contend with the exciting, uncomfortable, and altogether new feeling of being desired."
I love a good love triangle, not to mention she sort of left a boo back at home. But I just couldn't keep reading. It was too slow.
