Hello everyone, since I managed to acquire a ton of books I decided to revise my shelves to see if there were any books I was willing to part with and make room for some new arrivals. I don’t know about you, but I have done quite a bit of unhauls in the past few years. With everyone I do I find that it is harder and harder to get rid of the books on my shelf. I think it is because I have really gotten my reading tastes down and because I have already removed the “easy” books.
This round I found that I was able to still get rid of quite a few, 13 in fact. But, I had to make quite a few hard decisions. Since some of these have great memories attached to them and I did quite enjoy many of these as well. I just had to realize, I was never going to reread any of them.
The Silent Companions: I was given this book for free from my local indie bookstore, which was really nice of them. I just realized that I was never really going to be in the mood to read it, even though it sounded really interesting. It has made the cut for many unhauls already, but this time I realize that it was always in the maybe pile, but I never picked it up to read.
in a dark, dark wood: I really loved this book and Ruth Ware is one of my auto buy authors. Just for me it is really hard to reread a thriller and I would rather donate this book and allow someone else to experience this wonderful book!
Feminists Don’t Wear Pink: This book was also hard to part with, I really enjoyed reading it, but ultimately I think it would be better passed on to someone else who would love to read it since I would not be rereading it.
Fresh Ink: I am not a big anthology person so I knew I would never reread this. I am going to be passing this on to a friend who loves reading collections from various authors.
Everything’s Eventual: I have so many Stephen King books I love and I would rather just have the ones I love instead of just having all of his books if I am honest.
The Winter People: I loved this book, I just will never reread it in the future. I would rather allow someone else to read it.
East of Eden: I read this and I was eh about it. I will be donating it.
Faithful: Love this author, but I have never really been in the mood to read this book.
An Absolutely Remarkable Thing: I picked this book up for the BN book club, I lost it, found it and realized I didn’t care about it at all. I never finished it and I don’t really care to. It wasn’t a bad book. I just didn’t care.
The Broken Girls: Another amazing books that I want to share with others, I just wont ever reread it.
The Book of Essie: I realized I was more into the idea of this book than actually reading it. Which, is a huge shame.
All the Ugly and Wonderful Things: I think I was not in the right mood to read this book, but I thought it was okay and I am passing it on to my friend Reg!
The Wicked Deep: This is another book I really loved the idea of this book and I read the first few chapters and enjoyed it. I was just never really pulled in enough to keep on reading. I think it was just the mood I was in when I picked it up, but I know I am not going to pick it up again and I would prefer not to waste a good book.
Those are the books and the reasons why I am unhauling them. Do you agree with my decisions? What is the last book you unhauled?
