Do You See Any of Your Faves Here?

If so, I’m sorry! Because I’ve unhauled all of these!

Most of these were from my tbr shelves, books that I had hauled a while ago and no longer were something I was interested in. There are a few that I’ve read though. One or two from my adult life (and one I regret, hi Malala!)

Despite this unhaul being one of three that I did in 2021, I still own probably 800 books! It’s a lot, and I’m only bringing more in each day! So these periodic unhauls of being really harsh with what I actually keep help and also make me feel less guilty about not reading that book from 5 years ago

Some books include Uglies by Scott Westerfield, Gone by Michael Grant, Cinder by Marissa Meyer, The Lie Tree by Francis Hardinge, Girl Online Going Solo by Zoe Sugg, three books in the Mortal Instruments series, and many more

Q: Do you collect mugs?


I… have a bit of an afinity for mugs to the point where my partner dispairs every time I find a new cute one! So of course I wanted to try matching my books to one of my mugs!

I’ve loved owls for most of my life so this felt like the perfect mug to start with and I also really don’t have many brown books so this was a fun challenge! There’s only one book on this stack that I’ve not read (Dune) and the rest I’ve read and I absolutely loved them all!! They are all 5 star reads for me. Maybe I should pick up more brown books? 😂🤎

The books from bottom to top are: The Crow by Alison Croggon, Miss Marple Stories by Agatha Christie, Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, and Dune by Frank Herbert
