Monthly Try A Chapter Challenge #1

This series was created by the very fabulous Destiny at Howling Libraries. The idea is to choose 5 books from your TBR shelf, read the first chapter of each and decide which book you will be reading for the challenge the following month.

I adore this idea and think it will really help get my TBR down since I can usually tell by the writing style immediately if I will enjoy a book or not. So, I will be pulling from my TBR jar for this challenge and if I think that I might like the book, I will put it back in but if I definitely know that I will not…it will get discarded and off the TBR right away.

My January Choices

  • Damsel by Elana Arnold: This book starts off so good! And sounds amazing! Slaying dragons, Rescue the damsel, handsome Prince! I really enjoyed the first chapter and actually wanted to continue!
  • Kiss Collector by Wendy Higgins: Ugh, It pains me to say that I DNF’d this one:( I love Wendy Higgins and I adore her writing but I could not get past the first chapter of this book.
  • Last Best Story by Maggie Lehrman: DNF, Could not get past the first chapter of this one either:(
  • Endless Water, Starless Sky by Rosamund Hodge: This is a second book in a series and I have not read the first, so, I did not even bother with the first chapter.
  • So Glad To Meet You by Lisa Super: The first chapter captured my attention! Bucket list, Star-crossed Love.

And the winner is…

So Glad To Meet You!The first chapter captured my attention so much so that I did not want to put it down! So I didn’t. LOL! I just kept right on reading!

Damsel & Endless Water, Starless Sky had been placed right back into my TBR since I do want to read them both eventually.

Have you read any of these books? Tell me your thoughts on them.
