Book Un-Haul

Hey Guys!

A couple of months ago I did a post about a book un-haul that I had recently done. You all seemed to really enjoy it, so today I am doing another one. I recently did another reshuffle of my bookshelves to accommodate some new books that I have brought and I decided to have a look at some of the books that where already on there and get rid of a few that I have no interest in reading any more. So I thought that I would share with you what I am getting rid off and this time, tell you why I have decided to get rid of it. So lets do this.

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Johnny Be Good by Paige Toon

With all three of these, I am getting rid of them because I own another copy of each of them. The Night Circus I read last year, fell in love with so much that I brought myself a hardback copy of it, so I no longer need my paperback version (I don’t really see much point in having multiple editions of the same book, unless it is a special edition version. I don’t have tons of shelf space so I don’t want to waste any on multiple copies of the same book). The Immortal Rules I recently got in paper back as it is mildly easier to get a matching set of covers for the whole trilogy in PB. And I got the new edition of Johnny Be Good, mainly so that it matches my other Toon books (it was cheap)

Generation Dead by Daniel Waters

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Fallen by Lauren Kate

I read all of these a few years ago, hated Generation Dead, and I don’t really have any feelings towards Beautiful Creatures. I know that I don’t want to continue with either of these series, so they can both go. I am never going to re-read them, so what is the point of holding onto them. And as for Fallen, I loved this when I first read it, but the more time that has passed, the more I have grown to actually dislike it. I have no desire to read the rest of the series, or to reread this, so it is going.

Where She Went by Gayle Forman

I brought this the day that I finished reading If I Stay because I loved it and wanted more from the characters, turns out, I hated the squeal It was unnecessary and pointless and I ended up DNF-ing it. I honestly don’t know why I haven’t un-hauled this before now.

A Fistful Of Charms by Kim Harrison

Call The Midwife by Jennifer Worth

The Last Act Of Love by Cathy Rentzenbrink

I just have no interesting in reading any of these any more They don’t appeal to me any more so they might as well go to a new home. If in the future I decided that I do want to read any of these, I can re buy them. Also, discovered Fistful Of Charms is actually like the 3rd book in this series….I don’t own the rest or have read the rest.

And that’s it. I have also recently gotten rid of my copy of Messenger Of Fear by Michael Grant, purely because I had it in paperback and my sister un-hauled her hardback copy of it, so I thought I might as well just upgrade mine. But I have already given it away, so couldn’t include it in this photo.

For those wondering, all of these books will be going to charity. As I mentioned in my last haul post, the idea of an unread, unloved book makes me really sad, so I believe that if I’m not going to read it, someone else should. It should have the opportunity to be loved. I also give them to charity as I feel like then it is doing a bit of good as well. I usually donate them to Cancer Research, which is actually a store that I volunteered in for about a year as a teenager, so I like being able to still do something, no matter how little, to support them.

Do you ever just get the urge to go through your books and get rid of some of them? And if so, what do you do with the ones that you unhaul? I hope that you have enjoyed today’s post and I will see you all again very soon.

Side Note: I ended up keeping my paperback edition of the night circus…whoops lol
