Hello, book lovers! 💕
I’m back with another book tag that I wasn’t tagged in. And this one has to do with spring cleaning, and it looked like a lot of fun. I originally saw it over on The Journeying Bibliophile’s blog, so go check them out if you want to read their answers!
The Creator & The Rules:
The creators of this tag is Amanda @ Between the Shelves! The rules are:
- Link back to the original post.
- Tag as many friends as you want.
- Have fun!
So without further ado, let’s get onto the tag!
1. Getting started: A book series you’ve been wanting to read.
Either the Blood and Ash series or The Dark Elements series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I’ve read many of her books in the past, but I haven’t read any of her recent books. I really enjoyed the ones that I read from her, so I feel like I’d enjoy these, especially since they’ve been getting a lot of hype in the recent years.
2. Cleaning/organizing the closet: The best way to organize books.
Well my bookshelves are kind of a mess at the moment mainly because I don’t have enough space for all the books that I own. But the way that I normally organize my books is that I categorize them by genre, then alphabetize them by author. And series always stay together. Even if the spines don’t match (though that really irks me).
3. Getting rid of unnecessary things: Book/series you no longer need.
I’m bad at getting rid of books lately if I’m being honest. But if I were to go through my shelves right now, I’d probably get rid of Winger by Andrew Smith. There are probably more that I would consider, but it’d mostly be books that I have read and either didn’t enjoy or books that I read and have no interest in reading again.
4. Get some air: Your favorite light-hearted read.
I feel like it’s always around April or May that I decide to pick up one of Becky Albertalli’s books, either Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda or The Upside of Unrequited. Those two books never cease to put a smile on my face as I read them.
5. Clean out the kitchen cupboards: Favorite food-themed read.
The only food-themed book that I read (or at least remember reading that is food-related) is With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo. The main character is in a really strict culinary class in her senior year of high school. Her life revolves around cooking, but there is so much more to the story. But it’s really good.
6. Dust the shelves: What’s the fifth book on your bookshelf?
I have multiple books shelves, so it really depends on which one I go to and which way I decide to start. But the book I ended up with was Just One Day by Gayle Foreman. This is a book that I read so many years ago, and I remember liking it. It has traveling and self-discovery and finding love, though I’m pretty sure the romance in this book was kind of insta-lovey considering the main character and the love interest only spend one day together.
7. Wishing for the end: A 2021 release you’re really excited about.
There are so many! But the main one is Becky Albertalli’s most recent book Kate in Waiting. It comes out in April, and I seriously can’t wait for it! As I’ve mentioned, I love all of Becky Albertalli’s books, and this one I know is going to be no different.
8. Long but satisfying: The longest book series you’ve read.
I’m really bad at finishing series but the one that I would say is the longest that I read (but haven’t finished) is either The House of Night series by P.C. Cast or The Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. Both of these series I read when I was in high school, but only got to maybe the 9th book. At the time there were still books coming out, but I just lost interest in them. Looking at them now, I think both series have around 12-13 books in the series.
So there you have it! That’s the Spring Cleaning Book Tag! It was a lot of fun, and I don’t think I’m going to tag anyone in particular to do this tag. But if you want to do it, then consider yourself tagged!
And if you end up doing this tag, let me know so I can read your answers! Or if you have similar answers, let me know in the comments! I’d love to chat about them!
