Book Unhaul #6

It’s unhaul time again! I own too many books and I think if I piled them all up, they could definitely fall and kill me. So that’s a weird thing to think that I now find very stressful. So let’s unhaul twenty books in one quick go. These’ll be making their way to my nearest charity shop where they’ll hopefully find a new person to read them.

Girls in TearsHow to Survive Summer CampLola RoseThe Diamond GirlsLove Lessons, Dustbin Baby, and Midnight by Jacqueline Wilson
I found a bunch of these while going through my family’s storage unit and decided these seven can go. Jacqueline Wilson dominated kids books ‘for girls’ ten years ago so I read a lot of them. They deal with kids in difficult situations which I really wasn’t at that age, this might’ve helped me be a little bit more empathetic and they are pretty diverse. But boy, flicking through them as an adult can be an uncomfortable experience. Love Lessons has straight up victim-blaming and acceptance of a teacher-student relationship that has kids online talking about how they want the teacher to leave his wife for the 14-year-old… Yikes. Becky from Becky Bedbug also has some interesting thoughts on these books as well.

I kept a few of them that I have stronger nostalgic attachments to but I’m never going to re-read these so they can go. And the others might end up joining them.

Dead Until Dark, Living Dead in Dallas, Club Dead x 2, Dead to the World x 2, Dead as a Doornail, Definitely Dead, All Together Dead, From Dead to Worse, Dead and Gone x 2 and Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris

We all know I love Charlaine Harris and Sookie Stackhouse, so much that I actually own several copies of the first ten books in the series. I briefly thought I was going to collect the cute Orbit covers as well. But I much prefer the newer covers I own, and I’m not a multiple copies kind of person really. Thirteen books take up so much shelf space! 
Havve you read any of these? Do you have mulitple copies of certain books?
