I had to do it. I had to start a thread after reading too many books I did not and could not finish. Reasons are various: poor editing, grammar mistakes galore, poorly written, too many WTF moments, etc.
It has gotten to the point where I've DNFed so many books, I can't keep track of them. TG for this forum, because the reviews are becoming untrustworthy with so many friends, family, and fangirls of authors posting 5 star reviews. I've had enough of wasting my time and money on these types of books that have become more commonplace than not. Please note, I am not talking about books where I did not enjoy the plot or storyline. Obviously, something about the story interested me enough to start reading it.
So.... if you started a book that was a DNF (or wished you had DNF), then feel free to post it here and the reason(s) why. Hopefully, this may help other readers with their decision on whether to purchase a book or not.
ETA: btw, I am not an expert on grammar so if I start noticing a lot of grammar mistakes, they must be pretty blatant and obvious.
