The point of chapter samplers is to get you to discover new books, and this one led me to a new favourite, Insignia by S.J. Kincaid. So, I think it did its job. However, while I wasn't so captivated by the other titles (nor agree with having a sample of Insurgent rather than Divergent), it saved me the time and money to buy them. The best thing: this sampler is free and very much available!
This helped me find a few great books that I probably wouldn't have found otherwise. It's only the first few chapters of each book, but it's a great way to decide whether or not you want to read something before you buy it. Not only is it free, but it's also a lot easier than having to find 6 different book samples.
