Time for another unhaul post! We’re slowly working our way through all the books that are sitting in my basement, but as it is I have these posts scheduled until August. So you’re welcome. If you haven’t read any of the other posts then this is just a list of some books I plan on unhauling that are still sitting in my basement. I thought that it would be fun to talk about why I’m unhauling some, and why I’m debating keeping a few of them. Let me know if you have any opinions on any of these and if you want to check out the first three posts then they’re linked right here! One. Two. Three.
Earthbound (Earthbound #1) by Aprilynne Pike
I don’t know what this one is about and I really don’t like the cover. There’s too many things I am excited about reading that I don’t need to keep this one around. It does have a fun title though!
Need (Need #1) by Carrie Jones
I remember I had a friend that really loved this book so I picked it up….and then never read it. Who’s actually surprised? I think I might enjoy this one but I also don’t care enough to actually read it?
What I Was by Meg Rosoff
This is another one of those sale purchases that I regret because I have no idea what it’s about and I don’t care to find out. It’s just been on my shelves for far too long so it can go.
Wildlife (The Six Impossiverse #2) by Fiona Wood
I still can’t figure out if this is the second book in a series or just the second book that’s set in this specific universe but either way I don’t want to read it so it doesn’t actually matter.
Divergent (Divergent #1) & Insurgent (Divergent #2) & Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth
I was given these by someone and I’ve literally never even looked at them. I don’t like dystopian and I’ve heard that these are kind of dumb. I think if I had given them a shot when they were newly released and there was a bunch of hype I might have liked them but I stand no chance of liking them now so there we go.
The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg
I have no idea why I own this one because it really isn’t the type of book that I generally enjoy. It’s going.
The Girl in The Mirror by Sarah Gristwood
I bought this one because it was $2 and it’s historical fiction and those are usually my only standards but pretty much a week after I bought it (which was many years ago) I realized that I actually have no interest in reading it. It just doesn’t actually sound enjoyable to me so there’s no point putting myself through that.
So these are the four from this stack that I’m considering keeping. I’m really only sold on one but the others do sound interesting. I don’t know. I never know. I’m a mess.
The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman
This is the one from this stack that I’m actually probably definitely going to keep. I’ve enjoyed everything that I’ve read by Robin Wasserman, which is good, and this one sounds so intriguing. I actually think I might give this one a shot soon, if I don’t like it then that’s fine but I feel like it might be one of those that just kind of ends up getting pushed aside but is actually really good. I hope so at least.
Wings (Wings #1) & Spells (Wings #2) by Aprilynne Pike
I’ve had these ones on my shelves for so long it’s actually kind of sad, and the fact that I own more than one is a good sign I think! I love a good faerie book and this ones do sound pretty solid. Maybe it’ll happen? Ugh I don’t knowwww.
Ruins of Lace by Iris Anthony
So I don’t actually remember what this one is about, I have a vague idea and I think it sounded kind of interesting but I honestly just bought this one because I found it for $2. I’m always interested in historical fiction though so this one might be worth a shot! Definitely still thinking about it.
