DNF & RBWT of 2021

Bookhearts, you are familiar with my 50-Page RuleThe purpose of this annual DNF (did not finish) and RBWT (right book wrong time) post is to share my reason(s) in an effort to help books find its intended audience. May these books find a new home where they will be finished and enjoyed.
  1. A Good Day for Chardonnay by Darynda Jones ~ Two attempts and I'm out this series.
  2. A Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins ~ Lost. What is even happening?!
  3. Bed Stuy by Jerry McGill ~ Too blah to continue.
  4. Call Me Athena: Girl from Detroit by Colby Cedar Smith ~ Disjointed and disappointing.
  5. Her Name is Knight by Yasmin Angoe ~ A wordy highly-trained assassin with no action.
  6. Home is Not a Country by Safia Elhillo ~ Fleeting transitions were hard to follow.
  7. In Every Mirror She's Black by Lola Akinmade Åkerström ~ Multiple POVs seem out of order.
  8. Libertie by Kaitlyn Greenidge ~ Coming-of-age too slowly.
  9. Single Black Female by Tracy Brown ~ Now I remember why I stopped reading this genre.
  10. Somebody's Daughter by Ashley C. Ford ~ Better as audiobook maybe.
  11. State of Terror by Hillary Rodham Clinton ~ Maybe negative reviews aren't so skewed.
  12. Summer on the Bluffs by Sunny Hostin ~ I'mma have to try again in a summer setting.
  13. Sweetshop of Dreams by Jenny Colgan ~ Not exactly what I thought.
  14. The Stranger in the Lifeboat by Mitch Albom ~ "thick dark matted hair and blue eyes" Nope.
  15. They Can't Take Your Name by Robert Justice ~ Not connecting with story or character.
  16. Your Corner Dark by Desmond Hall ~ Distracting dialect.
