Tag | Try a Chapter – Netgalley Edition part 2

A little while ago I used a try a chapter tag to see if I was still interested in the older eArcs I haven’t read yet. While I was excited for them when I requested them, my reading tastes have changed a bit and some of these books just aren’t for me anymore. I have not nearly enough time to spend it on books I don’t enjoy or I’m not excited about so I have to make some decisions. Let’s see what I think after the first chapter!

Second Grave on the Left – Darynda Jones

I got 12 books in this series I think but so far I’ve only read the first book. It was an enjoyable book but not that great. I am still interested in it as the premise of the whole series is good and I liked the main character. When I opened the ebook I realized I had already read 18% of this one. I went back to the beginning of the last chapter to get back into the story. This is still a fun book! I might not always be in the mood for this kind of story but I do definitely still want to read these books.

Glow: Book I, Potency- Aubrey Hadley
now: The Glow

I had completely forgotten about this eARC to be honest. To give it a fair chance, I went it without reading the synopsis. This first chapter didn’t really grab me but there was one element that seemed interesting. In turns out there is an updated version of the book, based on the feedback they got from reviewers. After reading some of the reviews, I realized this story is going a very different direction than I expected but it isn’t drawing me in. So far I don’t like the characters and knowing the book got updated I just don’t think I want to spend my time on this one.

Little Darlings – Melanie Golding

This was another one I had already started, I think I had read about 3 chapters but I decided to go back to the start because I couldn’t remember anything haha. The first chapter doesn’t really tell me anything. I immediately don’t like the husband but the MC doesn’t do anything for me yet either. When I look at the reviews, it seems like this is mostly a contemporary novel about mental illness and postpartum depression while you also wonder whether there’s actually a woman who took the babies. And if I’m honest with myself, that’s not a book I want to read. So I might just decide this is where I leave this book.

These are the next three books on my NetGalley shelf and I think I only want to read the first one. I would love to hear from you, especially if you’ve read any of these books. Am I making a mistake by skipping them? Let me know in the comments!
