The Spring Cleaning Book Tag – 2023

Happy Saturday, friends! It’s finally the weekend and I’m excited to do the Spring Cleaning Book Tag today. I totally forgot this tag existed until I saw Elnade @Confessions of a Serial Reader post it earlier this week and then I remembered I’d done it before but of course, it’s been a while since. Maybe this is something I’ll end up doing yearly? Who knows! On that note, let’s just get to the questions!

The creator of the Spring Cleaning Book Tag is Amanda @ Between the Shelves.

The Rules

  • Link back to the original post
  • Tag as many friends as you want
  • Have fun!

1. Getting started: A book series you’ve been wanting to read

The Long Way to A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

This has been on my TBR for a long time and I feel like I’ve been saying that I’ll pick it up soon and it is now very long after the realm of soon. 😂 This year though. Maybe 2023 will be the year!

2. Cleaning/organising the closet: The best way to organise books

At the moment, my shelf is a *hot mess* and I haven’t organised it since I last unhauled books and subsequently hauled a lot more. 😂 I’ve been organising my shelf around my special signed books but when I had shelves that didn’t require me to double up I loved organising them in rainbow order. So pretty! 😍

3. Getting rid of unnecessary things: Books/series you no longer need

Here’s a small list of five books that I’ve unhauled recently, mainly because I’ve lost interest in reading them and/or I don’t think I’ll pick them up anytime soon (like in the next 1-2 years).

4. Get some air: Your favourite light-hearted read

Ooh, it’s hard to pick just one but this is the first title that comes to mind. I’ve read all four volumes so I’m well aware that it’s not always super light-hearted, especially as the story goes on, but I love how the book feels like a giant hug!

Heartstopper (series) by Alice Oseman

5. Clean out the kitchen cupboards: Favourite food-themed read

Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree

I’m sure I’ve read some other foodie books since last year but this is the first one that immediately came to mind. I loved this book so much that it made me want to start baking cinnamon rolls at 4am while reading it (I waited until 8am, lol)

6. Dust the shelves: What’s the fifth book on your bookshelf?

It’s a little hard to say because my shelves are doubled-up and as I mentioned, a hot mess but I think it’s:

My Dark Vanessa by Kate Elizabeth Russell

7. Wishing for the end: A 2023 release you’re really excited about

THERE ARE SO MANY. But here are five six! 😏

8. Long but satisfying: The longest book series you’ve read.

Since I last did this post in 2021, the answer is still the same (unless my brain has deceived me which is possible). It’s still the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas and I still haven’t finished all the books yet! 😂

I’m tagging:

And that’s a wrap, folks! That was a lot of fun and it was the perfect easy tag that I fancied doing today 😍 Have you read any of these books or are they also on your TBR?

    • Omg, HAHA I was just telling Julie how these covers are getting flack. I don’t know, I kinda really love them 😂 I mean, I like the OG covers fine, but I like how these show different elements of the story in a more artsy way? I don’t know, haha 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’ve heard good things about Turtles tbh, but I’ve lost interest over the years and now I don’t think I’ll read it. I’ve been trying to be better with unhauling books I’ve lost interest in tbh

  1. Thanks for the tag, Dini! I’m trying to remember if TOG is the longest series I’ve read or not. I know I’ve started reading some that are longer, but I haven’t finished them like the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Not sure if that would count? LOL!
