Read or Unhaul 2023

Happy Friday bookish people! I hope you’re all having a good day today.

I have seen a lot of different videos on youtube of people choosing books to try and make themselves read them that year and if they don’t then they have to unhaul them. This sounds like a great idea to me because it might help with getting me to read the books that I have been putting off.

these books are going to be:

  • The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon – I have the whole series and it still interests me so I hope to get around to it in 2023
  • The City Beautiful by Aden Polydoros because I see it on my shelves but I can’t remember anything from the story or what it is about
  • Set Fire to the Gods by Sara Raasch and Kristen Simmons – this is another book that I have the two books from the series and I have put it in my TBRs all the time but never gotten around to reading it so maybe this will make me read it.
  • The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater – the second book in the raven boys series, I read the first one and I didn’t love it so I either need to continue the series or give them to someone else who would enjoy them.
  • Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor because it is another book I have had for years and wanted to read and just never gotten to it.
  • Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, the longer it takes me to read this series the more things I see about it that make me put it off more.
  • Where Dreams Descend – I love the cover of this book and it is all about the circus so I am pretty sure I will love it but I just need to read it to find out for sure.
  • The Damned by Renee Ahdieh, I liked the first book in the series but the ending ruined it for me so I haven’t wanted to keep reading but I own the series so I think I should.
  • The Sisters Grimm by Menna Van Praag – I started to read this book but I couldn’t get into it so I am hoping if I come back to it I will enjoy it more.
  • Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo – I definitely need to continue this series with the second season of the show coming.

So, that’s it, that is the ten books I either need to read or unhaul by the end of next year.

Book Scavenger Hunt!

Happy Friday bookish people! Today I’m going to be doing something that I saw on hiddengirl.41 Instagram. They posted a Bookish Scavenger Hunt and I thought it would be a great thing to do on here! I think there’s eight questions/tasks to answer.

Let’s begin!

A Book With Two Or More People On The Cover:

I’ve got a couple of options for this one – Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson but it’s only got half of each of the two people, each of the spellslinger books by Sebastien De Castell has two people on the cover like a playing card design and The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels by India Holton also has two characters on the cover.

A Book With Ten Letters In The Title:

Finding books with exactly ten letters in the title was a bit more difficult than I expected, but I did find one – Dear Reader by Cathy Rentzenbrink.

A Book That’s Been Made Into A TV Show:

For this I have to go for Shadow and Bone, which I loved – both the books and the TV series.

A Book With Two Authors:

I don’t think I have very many of these but one I do have is Set Fire To The Gods by Sara Raasch and Kristen Simmons.

A Book That’s Been Made Into A Film:

I have the Maze Runner books and they were made into films.

A Book With The Name Of The Main Character In The Title:

Ooh for this one I’m going to go for Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater. The third one in the Raven Boys series.

A Book With An Animal On The Cover Real Or Mythical:

Kaspar Prince of Cats by Michael Morpurgo, there’s a cat on the cover. It’s only recently that I’ve started liking cats and now I absolutely love them.

A Book With A Number In The Title:

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E Harrow is the only one I could find for this.

That’s it for this Book Scavenger Hunt, I hope you all enjoyed it!
