I’ve mentioned my hoarding ways when I unhauled a few books for the new year, but going on Goodreads and seeing this TOWER of books threatening me with a knife to the throat… ya girl knew it wasn’t over.
So, I got to work and… I went from around 600 books even to 442 (!!!) and I came up with a… strange
for a lack of a better word method to getting rid of said books.
I’m spilling all of my secretssssssssss.
Get rid of sequels… if I haven’t read the book before it… then that sequel shouldn’t be there to be honest.
Review: City of Bones; City of Ashes; City of Glass
I’m using Cassandra Clare’s books, because yes, I do own all of TMI and TID series…but I haven’t read them all yet. And it’s quite valid that I might not want to continue them. So, when I get to them or finish a book in the series… I’ll add the next one.
Books I physically own that have been there for a bit too long also have to go… if I get to it, I’ll re-add it (looking at you Godsgrave), but I have no desire to read them anytime soon.
Duplicates are a thing I didn’t know… could happen until I saw the little button on the side bar that finds them for you.
There are giveaways that will add a different edition to your shelf or sometimes when I change the edition of a book I own, it’ll just add both rather than just changing the edition like I asked GOODREADS YOU HAD ONE JOB-
Sorry. You get my point.
Books I added from the hype and never got to/won’t get to is a new concept for me, dating back to… 2019 if I’m honest.
From someone who had the mentality of I spent my hard earned money on these, therefore I have to read them, it came to a point where these books sat on my bookshelves for YEARS… at this point, I know from the bottom of my heart I will never read this book.
But again, I’m a never say never kind of girl so we’ll see.
