It’s time to wrap up my TBR Chapter Challenge. I wanted to see if I could accurately predict what I would think about a book based on the first chapter. It’s safe to say I pretty much failed at this. I pretty much guessed wrong on all of them, but it was fun. Let’s wrap it up!
Kingdom of the Wicked
My Prediction: I thought I would love this. I thought it was atmospheric and witchy.
Rating Prediction: 5/5
Actual Rating: 3/5
My Thoughts After Reading: It was atmospheric and witchy in the beginning. And the food descriptions were mouthwatering. I like the chemistry between the main characters, but I guessed the big reveal in the first few pages. I think it’s a good series start, but I hope the next book improves.
The Devil All the Time
My Prediction: It seemed gritty and dark. It felt like a storm was building. I looked forward to the development.
Rating Prediction: 4/5
Actual Rating: 2/5
My Thoughts After Reading: I didn’t love this. I could care less about the characters. Plus, nothing really developed until the last few pages. It was a whole lot of character building on characters I didn’t even like. It was really disappointing.
My Prediction: The premise was interesting, but after reading the chapter it’s not what I expected. I’m not sure that I can connect with the writing.
Rating Prediction: 2
Actual Rating: DNFED
My Thoughts After Reading: I couldn’t connect with the writing or the world. So I gave up. I can’t make myself read a book that I’m not enjoying. I really wanted to love it, but it just wasn’t for me.
So that wraps up my TBR Chapter Challenge. I had a lot of fun with this. I’m going to have to try it again to see if I can actually make an accurate prediction. Hope you guy’s have an awesome weekend. Don’t forget to check back Monday! I have a fun announcement coming.
