My First Book Unhaul

Hello and welcome back to my blog.

Today I am saying, goodbye! Adios! Ciao! Sayonara! to a bunch of books that I’ve been wanting rid of for a long while now.

I’ve still got a stack of books in my room to either donate to the lil charity shop in my area or to maybe swap down at the Wednesday market. But these next five books were rehomed to a friend of mine who I’m hoping enjoys them more then me.

  • A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro I am sad to be saying goodbye to this book. I wanted to read this book so bad for about two years, it had a beautiful cover and a really great synopsis but it never clicked for me. I didn’t enjoy the characters or the writing style and I really never see myself continuing on with this series.
  • Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff- For me Illuminae is the bookish equivalent of nails on a chalkboard. I remember I was going to dedicate the whole week of Easter holidays to reading multiple books but I could barely finish this within that time. I’m really happy to not have it on my self anymore cause it kept making me feel guilty that I didn’t enjoy it.
  • The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani- Another I’m sad about. Again I thought this had a great synopsis and I liked the twist of stereotypes but I really didn’t enjoy this as much as everyone else and I have no intention of continuing on. My friend has already started it though and it seems he’s enjoying it.
  • WARP: The Reluctnat Addassin by Eoin Colfer- This sounded so cool when I picked it up and I was really excited about it. It was basically Witness Protection Programme mixed with time travel. In the end I hated this and I hated reading it and I’m glad I don’t own it anymore.
  •  Miles Morales Spider-Man by Jason Reynolds- I love all things spiderman and I was super excited about reading a something based off Miles Morales. I liked the characters but I wish the book had been longer because it felt like a lot of stuff was missing.
