The Spring Cleaning Book Tag

I saw this tag on Alys in Bookland’s page and decided I had to take part myself even though I know it is no longer Spring! It is a book tag that originated on Book Syrup’s BookTube.

1. The struggle of getting started: a book/book series that you have struggled to begin because of its size.

Ulysses by James Joyce.

I have always wanted to read it to understand why it is considered such a classic but it just looks like an exhausting read and that intimidates me.

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

I own the complete Zodiac series by Romina Russell and I just don’t really feel like reading it anymore. I was definitely taken in by the pretty cover…

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

A few summers ago I went through a pretty bad book slump and the book that got me out of that was Love Virtually by Daniel Glattauer.

4. Washing out sheet stains: a book you wish you could rewrite a certain scene in.

I’m going to say a recent read of mine, The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez. The ending was poorly judged and I would like to rewrite it and then the book would have been truly enjoyable and a lot more meaningful regarding its infertility storyline.

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

This seems unfair because I have not read it yet but I really wish that Shadowsong by S. Jae-Jones did not exist. To me the ending of Wintersong was perfect and I would have liked it to have been a standalone instead of a series.

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

I could pick any of Jane Austen’s books really, they all just feel so satisfying when you close the book on the last page.

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

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth. It tried to portray a character with chronic pain in a positive manner but sadly the finished book was incredibly problematic.

8. The tiring yet satisfying finish of spring cleaning: a book series that was tiring yet satisfying to get through.

The Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I read all of these books back to back as quickly as I humanly could and when I reached the end I was exhausted but oh so happy!

9. Looking forward to next spring: tag some people you want to do this tag.

I’ll just leave this as an open invitation to anyone who wants to do this tag
