Spring Cleaning Book Tag

I’m super excited to bring you a tag today – YES A TAG. It feels like forever since I did one. It’s probably been like a few weeks, but it’s like I forgotten how one does the tag??? I’m going to have to remember how to think. Help.

Thank you so much to Paige @ Bookish Paige for tagging BPR! Her blog is always so much, and she has so much great bookish content. She has great reviews, tags like this, and more! Make sure to check her out.

1. The struggle of getting started:
a book or series you struggle to begin because of its size


Girls of Paper and Fire! I have been so pumped for this book since I purchased it on Black Friday last year, but every time I try to add it to a readathon TBR or my monthly plan, I just slowly step back because it’s 400+ pages and like a pretty large book too, so like, HOW will I manage to binge the other twelve books I’m supposed to read to beat Sha..I mean, complete the reading challenge.

2. Cleaning out the closet:
a book or series you want to unhaul


I actually did this quite recently. I had broke my plan of never buying full series for The Winner’s Curse when I first started blogging. I just keep looking at it and only feeling basic thoughts. I would have to reread the first book again (for the THIRD time), and I really am not feeling the feels for it. So I had to move it out so I can shove more books in the space.

3. Opening windows and letting fresh air in:
a book that was refreshing


Opposite of Always! I had been struggling with my ship loves (despite my former self which was a total mega fangirl of romances), and this book totally reminded me just how much I could fall in deep with a ship. The wit and writing was just so exquisite as well, and it was just so refreshing to have this book go so right.

4. Washing out the sheets:
a scene you wish you could rewrite

Um, like, a lot? I wouldn’t actually want to rewrite it, but you know this girl is a mess with books. I can’t think of  a specific scene that comes to mind that I want to specifically rewrite.

5. Throwing out unnecessary knick-knacks:
a book in a series you didn’t think was necessary


Escaping from Houdini. Don’t hate me, y’all, but that book was pointless. It didn’t further anything because the ending left us exactly where we left off – except with me now extremely mad at the series. Plus, the mystery wasn’t even that good?

6. Polishing doorknobs:
a book that had a clean finish


Obsidio! That was a brilliant ending. I mean, I could always use more, but it was a clean finish for a fantastic series.

7. Reaching to dust the fan:
a book that tried too hard to relay a certain message


The Love and Lies of Rukshana Ali by Sabina Khan. The author put in way too many terrible, horrible things (omigosh, I still can’t get over how many triggers was in just this one little book), and then wanted to have a happy uplifting message at the end, it just was a total mess that totally had me lost on any sort of message that was coming from this story.

8. The tiring yet satisfying finish:
a series that was tiring but satisfying to get through

Lol, I feel like this might be me if I get through TOG? I feel like it is going to be mostly be me being tired and frustrated, but if I finish, I’ll be satisfied that I know what is happening with all of these names and comments and mentions. Maybe? MAYBE?

Tag…you’re it!

We tagged so many people for #MeetMeMarch, that I’m going to pause on it for the moment. Anyone that is ready to do some spring cleaning, I tag you!!

What do you think? What are some of your answers to this? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

  1. Oh yeah, I was a BIG fan of the clean finish to Obsidio – especially after the trauma it put me through at several points near the end! This is the third or fourth recommendation of Opposite Of Always I’ve seen, so I’m super excited to get my hands on it! 🙂

  2. *Heart clenches at TWC* But what must be done, must be done. I def have to clear out my shelves this spring, especially from these old ARCs I no longer have need of! But I’m really trying hard to catch up on finishing my review requests this spring! (I went overboard as usual!)

  3. I loved the ending of Obsidio too! It was quite a clean finish like you said and while I too always want more of them and all those characters, everything came together pretty well!
    Tog is definitely tiring to get through and it’s so intimidating as well! I reread the series before reading Kingdom of Ash and it took me three months (actually longer I think)!
