Try A Chapter Tag – Popular Romance Edition

Doing a Try a Chapter challenge every now and then is a great way to narrow down your TBR. You’ll either get excited about the books you have to read, or at least you’ll realise they aren’t for you. I wanted to do another one but needed to figure out what theme to follow.

Then I noticed that I’ve been buying more romance books.

So, why not try the first chapters of a few popular ones I own?

The results of this challenge surprised me. So let’s get into the books!

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these! My last post like this was over a year ago now. I might try to do one of these every few months with a different challenge. It might help me weed out some of the books I’m no longer interested in, and it’s also just a lot of fun!

Genre-wise…this list is all fantasy. I do own a lot of fantasy books, so this wasn’t a huge surprise. But it would have been nice to have a little something else on there. Especially when two of the books are very political fantasies involving marriages…yeah.

Try A Chapter Tag

This was a tag that I tried out back when I was on Booktube because it seemed like a fun way to talk about some books that I’ve not read. It went a little…messy, but I enjoyed it. It was something that I wanted to do again, but this time on my blog! Usually, people pick 5 books, and they read the first chapter.

I’ve pulled out four books that are all very different, that I’m not quite sure how I’m going to feel about them. They’re all books I want to read, obviously. But two came from book boxes, so I didn’t pick them myself, and the other two are books I’ve heard good things from other people about.
