The Spring Cleaning Book Tag

Hey everyone! I was tagged by Alys at Alys in Bookland to do this book tag, and as it is my first time being tagged for anything (lol) I felt I had to do it. So lets get started!!

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

Definitely Game of Thrones. That being said though, I will be starting it at some point this month. At least that’s the plan.

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

The only books I’m considering unhauling are the first two in the Vampire Academy series. I thought the first book was just ok, and I’ve had the second one just sitting on my shelf. I’ve had no interest in picking it up, but for some reason I can’t bring myself to unhaul it.

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

I actually just finished The Giver by Lois Lowry. It was a nice and easy read for me.

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

The only book I can think of is Switched by Amanda Hocking. The premise of this sounded so good, yet I don’t think the story was written in a way that the synopsis eluded to. So I would rewrite the entire book.

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

I don’t have an answer for this one. Plus it doesn’t help that I start many series, but need to actually continue them.

Polishing the doorknob: a book that had a clean finish

That would Untamed by A.G. Howard. It’s a novella collection that comes after the official ending of the Splintered series. I say this has a clean finish because the novellas shed light on some plot points that either were just mentioned or shortly explored. Plus the final novella, Six Impossible Things, just hit every feeling while wrapping up and expanding on the end of the series.

Reaching to dust the fan: a book that tried too hard to relay a certain topic

There is nothing coming to mind for this one. Like at all lol

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

I can only think of the Alex Cross series by James Patterson. It’s over 20 books and I’m only on number 11. I feel like I will never catch up, but I honestly don’t mind that. He is one of my favorite authors so this is no struggle for me.

Looking forward to next spring: tag 4 people you want to do this tag

I would tag people, but I don’t know how just yet lol So if you would like to do this tag, you are more than welcome!

Have a great day and enjoy your reading!

  1. That’s a fun tag! I’m glad I read Game of Thrones when I was younger and had more patience for longer books – I found that the older I get, the more intimidated I am by doorstoppers. Still, I hope you enjoy it!


      1. I guess it’s different for everyone, haha. I guess for me it’s a combination of less time and many epic fantasy books having lots of padding – I’ll still read the occasional brick and enjoy it, but it takes a lot more convincing.


    1. The first was just ok to me, and I gave it three stars. However I have no real desire to continue. So I should get rid of the two I have but something is stopping me from doing that lol I don’t know why

  2. What a fun tag, and I enjoyed reading your answers even though I haven’t read any of these books barring The Giver (but it’s been AGES).

    To tag someone, all you have to do is link back to one of their posts and it creates a pingback & notification to the blogger (WordPress only). It has to be an actual post to work, not their homepage, though!
