At first, this was going to be a short little piece of a few books that I wanted to unhaul from my shelves. However, what ended up happening was a major inner need to get rid of books that were making me feel guilty that I haven’t read them even though I really don’t want to read them.
Every month I’d tell myself. I will get to you this time I promise! Then time would pass the month would be gone and many months after the book would still be on my shelf unread. Recently, I’ve found that I want to be just a little bit selfish about my reading (it’s also apart of making myself feel ok about DNFing a book I just don’t like) time is precious, so why not give myself to reading books I’m the most interested in instead of letting those I don’t really want to read collect dust on my shelves?
Here are the books I’m saying goodbye to:
I really wanted to get into reading some short stories at the time I purchased this book, but as I looked more into it, I got more and more disinterested in it. I simply don’t want to feel guilty about it anymore.
I won this book in a giveaway a long time ago and I honestly don’t know why I entered in the first place. It’s definitely not my kind a story and I’ve gotten about a forth of the way into it at one time and trying to continue it feels like pulling teeth.
The Book of Esther
This beautiful book was one I really wanted to love but didn’t. I could never finish this one either and putting it off so many times should have told me that it was ok to put this one to rest long ago.
The Strange Angels series
That’s eleven books! Eleven books from my shelves that I never read to completion that I simply no longer want to read. This was honestly very therapeutic in a way for me. I’m making way for a future of books that I hope to love.
Thank you all for reading!! I hope you enjoyed this post. What books in your life do you have a struggle trying to read? What was the last book you unhauled?
-Till next time!
