Top 5 books I struggled to finish

Copy of Top 5 Wednesday Banner Hump Day!

Today’s rewind topic is books that I struggled to get through, which was the topic from… sometime. I went looking for it and couldn’t find it, but I know it’s there. šŸ˜›


5. Perdido Street Station by China Mieville

Perdido Street Station (New Crobuzon #1)Rating 4 stars

This is the highest rated book out of the ones I ‘struggled’ with. It took me months to complete but I ended up really enjoying it. I think it’s just something about Mieville’s writing that slows me down. No idea what it is.

4. Embassytown by China Mieville

EmbassytownRating: 3.75 stars

Notice there are multiple Mieville books on this list but I again, I ended up enjoying this one.








3. Rook by Sharon Cameron

RookRating: 3.5 stars

As we go down the list here, notice my struggle reading the books turned out to be less and less worth it. That’s not to say that I didn’t like Rook. I really did like it, just not as much as the previous ones.







2. House of Leaves by Mark Z Danielewski

House of LeavesRating: Currently Reading

This one I’m currently battling with. I’m liking it but it’s just so dense that it’s taking me ages to get through. I think I began in back in January or something. Hopefully the end will justify the means.






1. A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

A Clockwork OrangeRating: DNF

And this one I really struggled with the most, obviously. I couldn’t even finish it. I fought with this book for a few months probably before just calling it and giving in. I will likely never try to pick it up again.








And that’s it! Happy reading!
