Unfinished Friday - January 29, 2010

Thanks to Marie at The Boston Bibliophile for this timely meme as well as Tutu from Tutu's Two Cents for leading me to Marie's site. 

Unfinished Friday is a place for bloggers to share unfinished reads and perhaps spark the interest of another reader to pick up that book. 

Here are two that I recently could not finish:

Letters to Rosy.  The story seemed good, the author is from my home state and I thought I would give it a try.  I just couldn't get into the story.  I felt it jumped around quite a bit and I wasn't connected to any of the characters.  It's entirely possible that I just wasn't in the frame of mind at the time I picked the book up to sink into the story and I plan on picking up the book again in the future and giving it another go.

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.  Jane Austen sequel?  If you know me, I need to say no more.  Right up my alley.  Nothing wrong with the book as far as I could tell.  I just put the book down to start another on a deadline and haven't been able to pick it up again.  Another I plan on picking up again in the future.

How about you?  Any unfinished books this week you'd like to share?

I've been so busy reading books for reviews or book clubs & I never feel like I can put them down without finishing them. Altho' sometimes I want to!
