Try a Chapter Tag


I found this tag while bouncing around different booktube videos and stumbled across this video by the wonderful BooksandLala. It’s a pretty old tag by now, but I like the idea of it so I’m doing it. I have so many books I’ve been wanting to read but I have a hard time choosing, I’m so indecisive. This tag will help me decide.

The original creator is BookParadise on YouTube. 


  1. Pick 5 (or more) books from your tbr
  2. Read the first chapter of all of them (including the prologue if there is one)
  3. Tell your readers if you’re sold on the book and what you thought of the first chapter. Are you going to finish the book this month?

What I decided to do was pick five books that have been on my tbr for too long, because what is happening now is that the books I bought a long time ago are just being forgotten because there are so many new books I’m excited about. Then I’m going to do what Lala did in her video and pick one “winner”, i.e. finish the book I think seems the most interesting based on the first chapter. I’ll finally read one of the books I’ve had sitting around for ages, maybe years. Yay!

Here are the books I’ll read the first chapter of. As I’m writing this I still haven’t started reading them. 

I bought this one forever ago because I stumbled across the hardcover in a bookstore, which is so rare with English books here, but it’s just been gathering dust on my bookshelf ever since. I don’t know the details of what it’s about, but something about a fantasy version of ancient Rome? Slaves? I think it’s a dystopian series? Maybe?

This was originally on my “will read in 2016” list. Well… That didn’t happen. I’ll read the first chapter and see if I’m going to finish it this month or nah. The premise seems really dark and a bit hard for me to explain, so I recommend just reading the Goodreads synopsis. 

I’ve been wanting to get on this series forever, you guys. I desperately want to read Six of Crows but I feel like I can’t because I haven’t read the Grisha trilogy. 

Adam Silvera is an author I really want to read, he seems to write really beautiful and heartbreaking books which is just right up my alley. And this has been on my kindle for ages, I just need to kick myself and get to it. 

I know there’s something about twins in this, and them finding back to each other after having fallen out or lost touch or something like that. Apparently the writing style is very different as well, which can be a hit or a miss…

Burn, Rewrite, Reread Tag

burn rewrite reread tag

Hey guys! 

Thanks to Sara @ Freadom Library for tagging me! This is a fun tag, it’s the bookish version of kiss, marry, kill. I have a feeling it’s gonna be hard.


  • Randomly choose 3 books (Tip: Use the “Sort > Random” option on your Goodreads’ Read shelf.).
  • For each group, decide which book to burn, which one to rewrite, and which to reread (a lot like Kiss, Marry, Kill).
  • Repeat until you completed three rounds (or six).

Harry Potter Tag!


I’m sorry I’m having such a bad blogging month, you guys. I’m scheduling a couple posts today, so I’ll at least be back on track for the next few days. Here’s a tag created by Trang from bookidote! I’m a giant Potterhead so this is perfect.

Her one important rule is that you can’t use any of the HP books in your answers. Uh-oh. 

Let’s roll.

The Book Love Tag!

book love tagWe’re nearing Valentines’s Day, so I decided to try to make a tag that’s somewhat relevant. I hope I’m not making anything that’s too similar to anything that already exists. I’ve never tried creating a tag before but it’s not too shabby, I think. I hope. Let’s get to it. I’m really nervous to post this for some reason. 

Feel free to use my button if you want 🙂 Thanks a lot to my friend Nadia who bothered to create it for me!
