Firstly, thanks to Destiny at Howling Libraries for letting me join in!
If you’re not familiar with the Try a Chapter tag, it’s a tag common on booktube (and sometimes blogs) where the participant reads the first chapter of five books and chooses one of those books to read, based on the results!
As I already have a reading list for February, this will be for what I will read first in March. I’m not participating in any themes but I do want to read some off my backlist so I’ll read the first chapter each of these five books:
- Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
- The Elite by Keira Cass
- King Hall by Scarlett Dawn
- Drago by Sarah Brianne
- Because You’re Mine by Claire Contreras
My thoughts on the first chapters of…
Shadow and Bone
My first thought. Why oh why havent I read this before? Could slap myself……
Whilst I enjoyed book 1, I think I glimpsed what was coming and I didn’t know if I was up for all that angsty love triangle stuff, so reading this was the decider whether to carry on with the series or not. And after reading the first chapter I don’t think I will be!
I must admit, after the first few pages I was ready to put this to the bottom of the pile….but then at the end of chapter 1 something very intriguing happened….and I want more!!!
Very poetic for a mafia read! This gives us a glimpse of what the 2 main characters are like….basically dark and evil! I like this…..and I want more! Could have easily carried on reading.
Another mafia read. Not really much here to go on apart from I can already see it’s going to all fall apart for our main girl!
And the winner is…
Shadow and Bone
I was immediately sucked into this one and would carry on reading if I didnt have arc commitments.
Are you joining in this tag?
Come on, you know you want to!
It’s so fun!
