Blogmas Day 24: Try A Chapter #3

Hey guys! Wow I honestly can’t believe Blogmas is almost coming to an end. I have been enjoying this experience so much. I will be aiming to blog hop today. I have been slacking so hard on that aspect. I was doing well and then I just haven’t had the energy. I will do my post and then get off the computer. If you guys do have any posts you’re really proud of and want me to read please link down below. I will check it out. Anyway this is my second to last Try a Chapter for December. I was actually on top of it this week and then I ended up slacking off. I do really enjoy doing this. I have been sleeping on some of these books and I’m sad it took me so long to get to some of them. I will be aiming to make the ones I own a priority. So let’s dive in!

Day 15

A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow By Laura Taylor

I read this at night time. I was pretty tired and didn’t end up fully absorbing the first chapter. I honestly had no idea this story took place in London which I love. I feel that will really add to the story. I am still looking forward to reading this one.

Day 16

It’s Kind of A Funny Story By Ned Vizzini

I wanted to read this story for so long. It’s the first book that I added to goodreads back in 2014. That has been sitting on my TBR shelf for 6 years. I think a part of me has been putting it off because I know it’s going to be a heavy topic. It deals with a teenager having suicidal thoughts. I did end up reading the introduction and the first chapter. I got emotional over reading the introduction. I really do still want to pick this up.

Day 17

Girl, Unframed By Deb Caletti

This was another book from 25 Reads of December. I have to say I wasn’t really invested in the first chapter. I just don’t think I will be moving on with this one. I really don’t have much to say. I also don’t really remember what I read.

Day 18

The Woman in the Window By A.J. Finn

This gives me some major Girl On the Train vibes. I wasn’t a huge fan of that book but I am still invested in this one. The chapters are very short. I can see this being a book I go okay one more chapter and just keep going. I did have this on my TBR for 2020 but that fell through. I really might just add it to my Winter TBR.

Day 19

Mosquitoland By David Arnold

The first chapter ended up just being a line. I ended up reading the next one. I did the thing where I speed through to make it go faster. I just wasn’t invested in what was being said. I did use to own this book but I got rid of it. I probably should have just removed it from my TBR then. I did end up removing it from my TBR after trying the chapter. It just wasn’t for me.

Day 20

Kin By Kealand Patrick Burke

I read a short story from Kealand last year. I really enjoyed it. I have been wanting to read an actual book by him. I picked up the first chapter and really enjoyed it. It was very descriptive and creepy. I want to read a nice long horror book. This seems right up my alley. I can’t wait to get into it.

Day 21

Lullaby By Chuck Palahniuk

I didn’t realized this is a ghost story. Well that’s what it seems like from reading the first chapter. I mean I knew it was going to be weird no matter what since it’s a Chuck Palahniuk story. I just didn’t know much about it. This is another book I’ve had on my TBR for a while. I’m pretty sure I picked it up at a used book store ages ago. I’m trying to see if they’re worth keeping. I definitely am interested.


I am so happy that this try a chapter situation is helping me with books I own. I do feel I need to need to focus more on books I own. I slowly see space opening up in my bookcase and I am so happy. I have books all over my house so I need to change that. My stack of books I need to get rid of is growing so that is a good thing. Next week is my last week of try a chapter. I definitely will be doing it again. I probably won’t for a whole month but it has been helpful. So look out for a post at the beginning of January (hopefully) of my final week of trying a chapter. 

Have you guys read any of these books, if so what did you think of them? If not do you have any interest in picking any of these up?
