Spring cleaning seems to be in effect because I’ve just unhauled fourteen books from my shelves. It feels good, and I’m not sure if I’m going to get rid of two or three of them, but I’m still making room on my shelves. Sort of.
Anyway, these are the books that I’m getting rid of:
- “Monster High” by Lisi Harrison. A popular-ish read among young teens, I tried reading it, but it’s just not for me.
- “The Summer I Turned Pretty” by Jenny Han. I’ve had this book for a long time and never got around to reading it and don’t really think I will.
- “Crescendo” and “Silence” by Becca Fitzpatrick. I’ve read the first and second books in this series, but I just don’t have an interest anymore.
- “Following Atticus” by Tom Ryan. A cute nonfiction book about a dog and his owner scaling mountains. I’ve had it for years and never picked it up and I’m not sure if I actually will.
- “Crewel” by Gennifer Albin. Beautiful cover. My husband’s read it and said it was good, but I just don’t think I’ll get around to it.
- “Forgive My Fins” by Tera Lynn Childs. A book about mermaids that I was really interested in a long time ago, but I’ve lost interest.
- “Shattered Souls” by Mary Lindsey. A book about ghosts that sounded cool back in the day, but I’m just not interested in it anymore.
- “Eve” by Anna Carey. A dystopian that sounded cool, but again, lost interest. Had this for a long time on my shelves.
- “The Forest of Hands and Teeth” and “The Dead-Tossed Waves” by Carrie Ryan. I’ve read part of the first book, but it got really boring after a while and I was really confused as to what was happening. It’s a trilogy about zombies and I’m not big into zombies, so… yeah.
- “Tithe” and “Ironside” by Holly Black. These books got me into faeries back in the day, but I’ve never read the third book (I don’t own the second) and I don’t really plan on it lately. Who knows, I may keep these for nostalgic reasons.
- “The Merciless” by Danielle Vega. I actually got this a few months ago when I was in a dark and creepy reading mood, and I tried reading it and it’s kind of really predictable. I didn’t finish it and kind of don’t want to.
So, those are all of the books I plan on getting rid of. I’m not sure if I’ll get rid of two or three of them, but most likely, I will. And I’m kicking myself for having written my name in some of these books because it’s probably going to make it harder to get rid of them because of that. Le sigh.

Have you done an unhaul lately? It can be painful, but it’s actually quite liberating to be able to say that you know you won’t get to these books because of one reason or another. Let me know.
