When you’re running out of shelf space, you unhaul! And that my friend is what I’ve done! I have seen this challenge circulating in YouTube for awhile now and I decided to do it as well!
This challenge was created by Lala from BooksandLala! Check out her video!
This challenge have 10 different prompts, and each prompts you have to choose at least one book to take away from your shelf. But let me tell you, it’s not as easy at it looks. And before jumping to the prompts, here are all the books that I unhaul!
So… shall we get into the prompts?
*A BOOK YOU RATED LOW*
I never actually rated a book this low. I gave it a 1.75 to 2 stars. It does not sit well with me. I don’t like the story and I feel like I’m not giving the author another chance, although she’s making a buzz lately.
*A BOOK YOU CHANGED YOUR MIND ABOUT*
I love The Space Between Trees the first time that I read it. But thinking about it now, the story is quite flat. Fourteen Sundays is a published wattpad story. I like it and it has more depths than other wattpad books being published now a days. But it is a sequel and I feel like it’s a bit unnecessary. Witches is a fun book that I picked up on a whim for Halloween. I enjoyed it during that time but the more I think about it, the more I questioned myself as to what I like about it.
*A SERIES YOU WON’T BE COMPLETING*
I have read the first two books in this trilogy. However, I realized that Historical fiction is not for me. So I’m not planning to read the last book. But I might say that as from what I read, the story is original and interesting. Still, It’s not for me.
*A BOOK YOU DID NOT FINISH (DNF)*
I picked this book up when I’m about to dive back in the dystopian genre. I read a good chunk of this book. I think I read more than half until I stopped. The promise of a dystopian society is there. However, this book is more heavy on the romance than the world building itself. And I really feel bad for unhauling this because the author sends this book to me. But it must go because I need a shelf space.
*A BOOK YOU HAVE MULTIPLE COPIES OF*
I still have 2 copies of Alice in Wonderland in my shelf and they are in hardcover format. This one is mass market paperback so it’s too small to fit in my paperback shelf.
*A BOOK YOU’LL NEVER ACTUALLY GET TO*
Well, no need to explain all of these. I just bought these books on a whim and I’m not that interested with them as much as I did when I bought them.
*A BOOK YOU BOUGHT BECAUSE OF THE HYPE*
This is probably the most over-hyped book in my shelf. And the thing is, it does not live up with the hype. This could also fall in the “a book you rated low” category because I gave it 2 stars and I’m being generous with that 2 stars.
*A BOOK YOU BOUGHT BECAUSE OF THE COVER*
Aren’t these covers gorgeous? But I feel like I will never read them. I just bought them for the cover. So goodbye books…
*A BOOK YOU DIDN’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT*
The only thing I know about this book is that it’s a mental health book. Nothing more. And there is a book award in the cover, that’s the only reason why I pick this book up.
*A BOOK YOU DIDN’T BUY*
Anna and the French Kiss is from my best friend. I think she’s unhauling it and I told her that I want it. The Seventh Plague is given to me by my uncle. He misplaced the dust jacket.
*A BOOK YOU DON’T SEE YOURSELF REREADING*
This is not included in the original prompt but I’m adding it anyway.
I enjoyed all of these books. However, I do not see myself rereading this book anymore. And I probably rated this book from 4 to 5 stars. I just don’t see myself keeping them anymore.
A total of 22 books. I can’t believe that I unhauled that much. However, I donated some of these books because they deserve a new home that could appreciate them more than I do.
Anyway, I’ll end this post here! If you want to do this challenge, please do. It is quite refreshing in some ways.
Until next time!
