Books I’m Struggling to Finish

Assalamualaikum and hi everyone!
Why is it that I always choose night time to take out my camera and take pictures for my posts? Newsflash: no natural light equals to having to use my yellow bedroom light as lighting source and it ain’t nice, I tell ya. #thestruggleisreal
Talking about struggling! Everyone has their own struggles that they’re going through including trying to finish a book (how is finishing a book a struggle?). I was a fast reader back when I was still in school and my record is finishing a 500+ pages of book in less than 6 hours. I was 11 years old and the book was Sehangat Asmara by Aisya Sofea. If you haven’t read it, you really should because it’s awesome. 
But now when I’m older, trying to finish a book is like trying to forget someone you love (cewah Erin!) because it is so hard. I just can’t give my full attention and concentration to the book I’m reading. I would either take a break every chapter or I just won’t read at all. It is bad because I love reading but the passion is just not there anymore. I am so sad, to say the least.
  • If I Stay by Gayle Forman. I’m not interested in this book. Don’t know why I bought it. But I will try to finish it and if I changed my mind about this book, I would most probably do a review of it. The whole thing with ghost/spirit stuff is just not my cup of tea.
  • A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I lovelovelove this book series! However, it is just too damn thick for my liking and the fact that I have watched the tv series (which mean I already knew what happened) does not help at all. However, I would still read it for the sake of Robb Stark. #winteriscoming #dontfightmeonthis
  • City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare. I love the book series! TV series? Meh, not so much. I don’t like the leading actress, though. She sucks as Clary Fray. I cannot wait for book three when Jace and Clary found out that they are not siblings. Right now it’s incest.
  • Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella. Sophie Kinsella is one of my favourites author but I was not feeling it with this book. I love Can You Keep A Secret?, but Wedding Night is not as engaging as the former. The way the book is written does not scream Sophie Kinsella. It doesn’t feel like she wrote it.
Are you struggling to finish a book like I do?
  • Omg i always read multiple books at a time. i rotate, i switch them whatsoever. i usually finish them all but now i can't even finish a book. i don't know. the passion is just not there anymore heh. btw, i've read wedding night and if i stay and yup they're so-so. myeh

  • aaaah. even more reason to not read them T.T i actually have quite a lot of books that i read halfway but these 4 are the ones i always go to. i really wanna finish them but it's a struggle!

  • I'm an avid novel reader. I bought so much I still have like 80 new unread books in my closet (yes, i put them in my closet cos I love them more than my clothes). The book that I really struggle to finish it was Eat. Pray. Love by Elizabeth Gilbert and Soul Mountain by Gao Xinjian. Took me months to finished each books.

  • oh my god i have that many unread books too!

  • i have 10 on my waiting list..brought them last year but until now they left untouched…it really hard to start reading them when you are not feeling really into it…hoho

  • i have around 70 books T.T need the passion back xxx

    Well, I agree that the actress who plays as Clary Fray sucks >.< Please finish the series, it is worth your time. ^^
