Abandonment Issues

Abandoned toys and doll (image source)
This is a semi-regular feature where I talk about the books I just couldn't get into.  In every reader's life there will be books that just don't work for you.  Since I read for pleasure, I abandon those books shamelessly.  Here's the most recent list - for these I'm not writing snarky comments - just giving a list.  Most of these just didn't grab my attention from the get-go so I really don't have an informed opinion:

Quiet by Susan Cain
The Silent Oligarch by Christopher Morgan Jones
The Lost Goddess by Tom Knox
The Baker's Daughter by Sarah McCoy
Wicked Wives by Gus Pelagatti
Three Weeks in December by Audrey Schulman

I will note that in all cases many readers loved these books, but for me (even after several tries), they just didn't work.  Don't let that stop you from exploring them.
