Today I am doing another installment of the Try a Chapter Tag. Recently I checked out a bunch of library books and since I don’t know if I will get to all of them, I have decided to do the Try a Chapter Tag to see which ones I keep and which ones I take back to the library. I am doing this in two parts, so come back next Friday for part 2 in my Try a Chapter Tag – Library Edition.
The Try a Chapter Tag was originally created by BookTuber Book Paradise. Click here to see her original video.
Without further ado lets jump into the books:
The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennett by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick
I liked what I have read so far, especially seeing how it ties into the YouTube series. I am to keep this at least for another week or so, especially since it can qualify for several challenges in #TheReadingQuest. What I also I like so far is that I can imagine the characters voices in my head.
Future Perfect by Jen Larsen
Eventually I will pick this book up again because it does sound interesting, but right now is not the right time. Ashley’s grandmother is well-meaning but she is still wrong in the way she treats her granddaughter and that frustrates me. I do like how it seems to deal with the issue of size, however I’m not in the mood to read something like this right now.
Sophie Someone by Hayley LongIt seems interesting, but the language will bug me – using “noodles” instead of “name”, “bruiser” instead of “brother, etc. It also took me a while to figure out what they meant. However, there is a warning at the front of the book, but it is still off-putting. For right now I am saying no to Sophie Someone, but I might pick it up eventually.
Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett
I like it so far. One thing I don’t like is the trope of some tragic secret that happened in the past – it irritates me so much. I’m looking forward to the You’ve Got Mail vibes that I heard others talk about.
The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith
I loved the opening line: “On the first day of September, the world went dark.” It is intriguing and made me want to keep reading. The whole opening page was picturesque. The first chapter was a good start and I like where it is going. I don’t know when I’ll pick it up, but I’m going to hang on to it for a while.
