Spring cleaning, something I seriously need to do! I am a naturally messy person, it stems from me being incredibly lazy and I just throw things all over my room and it builds and it builds. It’s a vicious cycle.
I saw this tag done by Lori’s Bookshelf Reads and I thought it was perfect for hopefully getting me motivated to sort out my life and clean out my mess of a wardrobe
1. The struggle of getting started:
A book or series you struggle to begin because of its size.
One I previously struggled to start due to size was Throne of Glass because there are so many books in that series and each is bigger then the last. I’m happy to report I’m four books in. Currently I haven’t built up the nerve to read Poison Study because there are multiple trilogies to this series and that scares me.
2. Cleaning out the closet:
A book or series you want to unhaul.
Again, I have 2. The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Braken and also Croak by Gina Damico. I’ve read both trilogies and liked them but didn’t love and I don’t really see myself ever re-reading.
3. Opening windows and letting fresh air in:
A book that was refreshing.
Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey Mcquinston, a very recent read I LOVED. It was refreshing in terms of representation which in a way is sad, I wish there were more books with as much casual rep that it was just a normal thing.
4. Washing out the sheets:
A scene you wish you could rewrite
Order of the Phoenix. Department of Mysteries. Let’s just say less tears would have been shed if I got to rewrite that chapter.
5. Throwing out unnecessary knick-knacks:
A book in a series you didn’t think was necessary
Blood Promise by Richelle Mead, again its been a while since I read the fourth book in this series but I remember not being a fan. It’s not that this book wasnt necessary but the length definitely could have been shorter.
6. Polishing doorknobs:
A book that had a clean finish
I though A Girl Called Shameless by Laura Steven had a pretty clean finish. It felt like it did a full circle to connect back to the first book which I appreciated.
7. Reaching to dust the fan:
A book that tried too hard to relay a certain message
I’m gonna go with A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallero. I feel like this tried too hard to link everything back to Sherlock Holmes but then again that could just be my disappointment towards this book talking.
8. The tiring yet satisfying finish:
a series that was tiring but satisfying to get through
The Shadowhunter Chronicles. There’s just so many of them and the world is still growing and each book is packed with so much drama! Saying that though I have had a lot of fun reading through the series the past few years and I am still looking forward for future releases.
I might have survived this tag but I really doubt I’ll survive cleaning out my wardrobe. Thanks for reading.
