DNF @ 65%


It's not like me to DNF a book, particularly one which was chosen for my book club.  But I just couldn't face any more of this novel right now.


It's summer and dysfunctional family drama just isn't on my reading menu at the moment.  I attended book club last night, Rice Krispie square in hand (it was much too hot to bake), and confessed that I hadn't finished the book.  This is a first for me.


Several other people really enjoyed it, so I chalk this up to my own reading mood.  


Life is too short to read books that aren't delightful.
