There’s going to be a LOT of unhauling going on around here this year.
Beat the Backlist has only been on for a month now, but I’ve already collected a handful of books that I’m ready to part with. As I’ve focused on only picking up books from my shelf, I’ve come to realize that there are a lot of books that I bought – and even loved – as a teenager that just aren’t my taste anymore. There are also a lot of books that I bought super cheap to try out and now that I’m getting around to them…. well, I’m glad they weren’t expensive.
Here are the books I’ve pulled off my shelf for good so far:
I read The Cellar years ago and remembered liking it but not loving it, so I tried picking up The Cabin and couldn’t get past the first couple of chapters. I DNF’ed it and then went ahead and pulled all three books I own from that series.
I really, really wanted to like After because I’m in the mood for a good fanfiction-y romance story, but I just couldn’t handle it. I read the first few pages and it didn’t catch my interest, so I started flipping to random pages and didn’t find anything that made me want to keep going. Another DNF!
Red Riding Hood is one of the books I’ve had on my shelf the longest. I actually didn’t even know I had it anymore. I don’t really have any desire to read it, plussssss I broke one of my cardinal rules and read the Goodreads reviews before picking it up and boy oh boy, they weren’t good.
What books have you gotten rid of lately?
