I saw this book tag over on Kristin Kraves Books and thought it looked like so much fun! If you aren’t following her, go over and check her out!
I thought this was a good opportunity to take a harder look at my shelves and determine what needs to stay and what needs to go!
The struggle of getting started: a book/book series that you have struggled to begin because of its size
Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
I have loved every Sarah J. Maas book that I have read, but I’ve been nervous to start this series, simply because of its size.
Cleaning out the closet: a book and/or book series you want to unhaul
Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer
I have struggled to have the desire to continue this series. I know many people love this series, but I am thinking that I might just unhaul it.
Opening windows and letting fresh air in: a book that was refreshing
The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood
This was such a great romance! You don’t see a lot of romance novels where women are in STEM jobs, so I found this very refreshing.
Washing out sheet stains: a book you wish you could rewrite a certain scene in
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
I won’t say which scene I wish I could rewrite, because spoilers, but suffice it to say that this book got a much lower rating from me because of it.
Throwing out unnecessary knick-knacks: a book in a series that you didn’t feel was necessary
A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas
So, I actually don’t have a problem with this book, but I will say that it was not strictly necessary to the series.
Polishing the doorknobs: a book that had a clean finish
The Downstairs Girl by Stacey Lee
This book was lovely from top to bottom. I am so glad that it is finally getting the recognition that it deserves.
Reaching to dust the fan: a book that tried too hard to relay a certain message
Scythe by Neal Shusterman
This book felt very heavy handed to me. It has made me less than enthused to continue the series.
The tiring yet satisfying finish of spring cleaning: a book series that was tiring yet satisfying to get through
Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
I have not actually finished this series yet, but each book is certainly tiring yet satisfying to get through.
If you are interested in doing this tag, consider yourself tagged! Let me know if you decide to do it yourself! I’d love to see your answers 🙂
Do you have books you need to get rid of? Are there any books I talked about here that you think I should keep or go? Let’s chat in the comments!
Love and happy reading,

Throne of Glass is so good! I highly recommend, even if, the books are monster sized. I totally agree about A Court of Frost and Starlight. not needed! Completely agree with Outlander! I’ve been in the middle of book 4, for a long time. It does feel so good when you finally finish one!

I actually just did some of these actions when I moved (okay, so “just” is a relative term, it’s been months… ) I gave up on a couple of series I’d always thought I’d read through, and had many if not all of the books in, but read few of. And then, like with Throne of Glass, I gutted some series, but keep a few of them (either my favourite finished ones, or the next unread one, etc.).
