Two DNFs

I know February isn’t over yet but hopefully no more DNFs this month as I’ve already had two. For me to count a book as not finished, it’s one where I’ve invested a bit more time. One where I’ve actually gone way past my 30ish page rule.

The first one was The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg. I love Scandinavian crime ficiton but this story which features a writer who stumbles across the dead body of a friend and all of a sudden is involved in solving the mystery just didn’t really make an impression on me. I felt like there were too many extra little plots which kept the investigation from moving along.

The other book was Fieldwork by Mischa Berlinski. This is one I was really looking forward to but somehow just didn’t deliver for me. The story is about missionaries in a village in Thailand. The descriptions of Thailand, the foods and setting where very atmospheric but the unraveling of the mystery seemed to take forever. I didn’t even care anymore. I just seemed to lose my patience with this one.

So I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this is it for DNFs. Alright now to settle down with a good book (hopefully!) for tonight.
