I’m back with another unhaul! Mainly because I’ve bought a book and to stick with my 2018 book goals I need to unhaul ten real fast. And I need to get back on the bandwagon of clearing off my shelves, I have so many books that I have no interest in anymore. Ideally, I’ll be excited about everything I have on my TBR, and love everything on my read shelf.
I actually read all of these last year! But one of the things I’m discovering as I go on this journey of unhauling is that I own a lot of multiple copies of classics where I have a fancy copy that I’ve bought as an adult but I still have the old copies from when I was a teen. I’m not into having multiples of the same book, so these are going.
Raven’s Gate and Evil Star by Anthony Horowitz
I wasn’t sure I was going to keep these when I originally organized my TBR books after the big redecorate but I did thinking that I might get around to them. I didn’t, but last summer I did read several other books by Anthony Horowitz and found them lacking. Maybe these would be better but I have no motivation to find out.
The Countenance Divine by Michael Hughes*
I didn’t write a Books I ‘Paused’ in 2016 post because I, luckily, didn’t have that many. But if there was one, this would’ve been top of the list as probably the most hated book I’ve ever read. I don’t like saying that, I think every book and writer has merits. But I feel that if someone is writing in 2016 and there’s outright misogyny and one minor female character for the six or seven main male characters- something has gone terribly wrong.
