Mini DNF Book Reviews: A Fabrication of the Truth / The Inconceivable Life of Quinn / Four of a Kind / Saabrina: Tanglewood

I went a little request crazy and instead of torturing myself by trying to read and finish books I lost interest in, I’m just officially DNF-ing them.

Feel free to shame me for it, or if you like one of the below, try and convince you to finish it.

I requested and was approved for all these books from Netgalley. Because they are review copies, I tried to stick it out, but I couldn’t. I opinions are not changed because they are review copies. I may or may not revisit any in the future. But at the moment, I have no intention of finishing them at the moment.


A Fabrication of the Truth
by Katie Kaleski

This book was way too cheesy to get through. It wasn’t badly written, but I couldn’t connect to any characters, and the plot was full of too many tropes – I felt like I already knew what was going to happen, and I didn’t feel like finishing. Maybe if you’re into this sort of thing, you’ll like it. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t for me.


The Inconceivable Life of Quinn
by Marianna Baer

Sex in books tends to freak me out a little – I just don’t like it, though usually I can push through it. Its kind of a center point of this book though – considering the MC is pregnant. I liked the protagonist, but the other characters felt cookie cutter. It was slow, and pretty cringe-y and I couldn’t get through it, though if sex in YA is less off-putting to you, you may like it. Its certainly different from other YA books.


Four of a Kind – Four of a Kind, Book One
by Kellie Sheridan

Have you ever watched an ABC Family or Hallmark movie? This book basically feels like that. It wasn’t bad, but I also feel zero compulsion to finish it. Someone else may like it, but I just didn’t feel anything for it.


Saabrina: Tanglewood
By Seth Cohen

So, when I requested this book, I didn’t realize it was a sequel. I tried to push through anyways, but it references characters and events from the previous books, and explains so little, that I was too confused to keep going. Not really the book’s fault, but I couldn’t read it.
