Recently, I have been staring at my shelves and have come to startling conclusion. I have so many books that I am just never going to read. I spent money on books THAT I AM NEVER GOING TO READ. So naturally I berate myself for being not very smarticle-particle about some of my previous financial endeavours. That is to say, I am not necessarily unhauling these books…but it is probably a sign that I should unhaul them. We shall see what future me decides.
Now I’m mainly gonna talk about books on my shelves since I know if I scroll through Goodreads…this list will get too long!
It’s time to face the truth….
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth
No interest to read it. At least I didn’t spend money on it. I actually got to meet Veronica when she came to Toronto for her tour and my friend won a contest so she added me as her plus one. But I honestly didn’t want to read it from the start so…………………………….probably not gonna happen. And it’s personalized to me…oops
The Orphan Queen and The Mirror King by Jodie Meadows
What an absolute mistake in buying the second book. I thought book 1 was okay (so ha! I did read one of these at least) and immediately after book 2 came out, I decided to buy it. But it has been sitting on my shelf, unread, collecting dust for more than two years??? Bad financial decision. And I don’t remember much from book one anyways so that would mean a reread and I just do not have the time or energy for it…ugh what have I done! *face palm*
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
Let’s be honest. I hold a grudge against this book because I chose to buy it over Cinder. And well we all know what happened after that, don’t we. I am probably never gonna read it and I still feel so dumb for buying it! I haven’t even watched the movie and the sole reason why I chose this book over Cinder was for the epic movie tie-in cover. I don’t know what past-Rendz was thinking.
ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas (And future SJM works)
People, it’s not going to happen. And I feel so dumb for spending money on them too.
I have just lost all interest in it. Okay…maybe not all the interest, but I am over the hype. I am over it. I don’t even think your precious Rhysand would make it on to my lists because I am a petty bich and let’s just say SJM and I don’t have a good history with shipping ships. (See my thoughts on her ToG series) Kingdom of Ash will probably be the last book I read by her (oh wait no, I have to read Catwoman)…so I don’t know. Maybe I will read these, but I don’t want to right now!
Don’t come for me in the comments, I know how much you guys adore this series and hey that’s awesome…I just personally am losing interest fast.
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
It’s never gonna happen. Don’t even try to hold out hope for me! Sorry! Just, nope!
These are just a couple of the books I found. There are a lot of contemporaries on my shelf, and not the cute fluffy romance kind (which are the ones I go for), so those will probably be unhauled soon. I am trying to not be such a hoarder, I have issues okay!! I emotionally attach myself to all these books, even the unread ones. It’s really hard to let go. Especially when I spent money on them!
Let me know what you think? What books are you never going to read? Do you think I am making a mistake with any of these? (Cue the ACOTAR and HP hoard of comments) What do you do with books you unhaul? Sell them? Trade them? Donate them?
Also, I just wanted to let you all know that I will not be as active in the next coming weeks! It’s exam time and I am in crunch mode! I wish you all the best, I shall see you mid-December!!!
