Books Begging to Be Finished!!

Do you have books in your collection that you've started reading, but haven't yet finished reading? 

I have a short stack of books that I began reading at various points in time over the past couple of years and have yet to finish reading. The book titles are as follows:

Nature Girl by Carl Hiaasen
Fish on Friday by Brian M. Fagan
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Butterflies of Grand Canyon by Margaret Erhart
Room by Emma Donoghue

It wasn't that I didn't enjoy reading these books at the time. Quite the contrary. I guess you could say that it just wasn't the right time to be reading them due to various things that come up in life. 

Sometimes you lose the momentum to continue reading where you left off in a book. This is what happened to me, so I found myself moving onto other books. 

Now, I'm trying to decide what to do with regards to reading the above mentioned books. Do I start reading them from the beginning all over again? Or, do I continue where I left off, hoping that I can pick up the storyline and plot details?

  1. Oh... good I'm not the only one with books like these sitting around my bed. I have two main books I'd like to finish reading, but I'm not sure if I can.

    'Gargoyle: A Love Story'
    'Parrot & Olivier'

    These had rave reviews from all over and yet when I began reading them, I found I stopped about quarter way through both for unknown reasons. They are both quite big books, but I don't normally have problems with big books... so I really don't know what my problem is.
