This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is a spring cleaning freebie and I’m going to be interpreting that quite literally and listing the books I am going to be unhauling from my collection and why!
The books I’m Unhauling are:
The Tales of Beedle the Bard – I have two editions of this book which I don’t need
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas – Multiple copies not needed
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – did not care for this at all!
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins – multiple copies
The Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi – DNF, will never read again, don’t need to own!
Permanent Record by Mary H.K. Choi – didn’t like this book
These are five of my favourite quotes from the last five books that I have read!!
Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire
“No one should have to sit and suffer and pretend to be someone they’re not because it’s easier, or because no one wants to help them fix it.”
Well Played by Jen DeLuca
“Some of us choose to settle in small towns; some of us have settling in small towns thrust upon us.”
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
“For all those that have to fight for the respect that everyone else is given without question.”
In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire
“If you want to help her, you need to help yourself first. No one serves their friends by grinding themselves into dust on the altar of compassion.”
Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima
“We spend so much of our lives waiting to be ambushed by heartbreak. Why couldn’t we be ambushed by joy?”
