The Spring Cleaning Book Tag

Spring cleaning… Something I really need to do in my apartment desperately… but I was tagged in The Spring Cleaning Book Tag by Reading with Jessica so for now, this will have to do 🙂

The Struggle of Getting Started: A book or series you struggle to begin because of its size


This is always the first book that comes to mind for books that I have been meaning to read for ever, and the reason I haven’t gotten to it is because of its size and its intimidation factor… I’m planning on tackling it finally this year though!

Cleaning Out the Closet: A book or series you want to unhaul

This series has been on my TBR since MIDDLE SCHOOL, and I still have never read it.  It seemed so scandalous to my younger self, but now that I’m older, the desire to read it has disappeared. Bye!

Opening Windows and Letting Fresh Air In: A book that was refreshing


This book is easily one of my favorites that I’ve read this year.  It just fills your heart with happiness and hope and it is so incredibly beautiful.

Washing Out The Sheets: A book with a scene you wish you could rewrite


WORST ENDING EVER.  It still makes my blood boil to think about it.

Throwing Out Unnecessary Knick-Knacks: A book in a series you didn’t think was necessary


As much as I loved coming back into Mia’s world, this book was unnecessary.  The original series ended so perfectly, and I think this one felt thrown on the end.

Polishing Doorknobs: A book that had a clean finish


I absolutely adore Kate Morton and after the long journey of this story, the ending wrapped up everything very well and gave me a gigantic book hangover!

Reaching to Dust the Fan: A book that tried too hard to relay a certain message


I ended up really liking and being haunted by this book.  I did think it tried too hard to shock with all of the explicit, sexual scenes that seemed unnecessary to me though.

The Tiring, Yet Satisfying Finish of Spring Cleaning: A book series that was tiring but satisfying to get through

I loved The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, but it was not a quick and easy read.  Even now, I feel like I need to re-read them because I feel like I missed things, and that there is so much more information to be absorbed from this world.  I’ve recently been watching the movies, so its putting me in the mood to read them again.

    1. Thanks for tagging me! 🙂 I LOVED The Queen of the Tearling series, which is why the ending of the last one upset me so much. It’s really good until the VERY end…. ugh you have to let me know what you think when you finish it.

  1. LOTR was my Christmas read for several years – always gobbled up some portion of that precious time off. The books were a defining experience for me and I love them to this day. You’re tempting me to go back and give them another read through. Cheers, Brian


      1. Never thought of it in these terms before but LOTR was every bit as important to my generation as Harry Potter has been to my children’s generation. What amazing books. Cheers, Brian
