Bookish Tag: The Spring Cleaning Book Tag

Bookish Tag Banner

We have another Bookish Tag today! Malka and Chana @ Paper Procrastinators tagged me on doing this tag which was initially created by Jen @ BookSyrup. I know spring is over, but I’m still doing this!


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

Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin and Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. With the thickness of each book, I’m not sure if I want to read it now. LOL!

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

Actually, I’m not sure if there are still books that I want to unhaul because so far, the books I have with me are the books that I want to keep for now. As for some of you who don’t know, I love donating my books for a cause. Like, when there are book donations drive in my school where they will give it to small schools in the provinces, I usually drop some unwanted books, and I’m hoping new readers would like it.

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

Someday by Liz Lovelock

I think Someday by Liz Lovelock would fit right in this question. I simply love this novel.

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

Restless by Michelle Bellon

It would be Restless by Michelle Bellon. I won’t rewrite a particular scene, but instead, I’d insert some scenes or details in the story.

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

I’m undecided what I will pick for this question. I have read a lot of the first book of different series, but I haven’t read all the books in it yet. See, I have this disease of not reading the other books in a series, especially if I’m already okay with the story in the first book. I’m afraid that the story on the following books is not that good.

6. Polishing the doorknobs: a book that had a clean finish.

The Grace Year by Kim Liggett

I’m not sure what to put here because most of the books I’ve read had either cliffhanger or an open ending. And, I don’t think I can consider that the other books that I’ve read had a clean finish.

But, I’m choosing The Grace Year by Kim Liggett. I loved its ending, and I’m satisfied with what I’ve read in the last chapter.

7. Reaching to dust the fan: a book that tried too hard to relay a certain message.

Something Wicked by Debi Chestnut

Something Wicked: A Ghost Hunter Explores a Negative Spirits by Debi Chestnut. This is a non-fiction book that I’ve read before and based on its title, it has something to do with ghost hunting. And, I thought I would love this because we are talking about ghosts and I am interested in having more knowledge about it but, instead, I only got excited about nothing. This is informative, yes. But, the explanation became repetitive to me as I turn more pages.

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

harry potter series

Harry Potter Series! There are seven books in that series, and as someone who started reading it late, it would scare you because of the number of pages of its books. But, I love this series, and I wish I had read it when I was younger, the same age as the main characters.

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

  1. I’m so glad you did the tag! I’m honestly so impressed whenever someone says they’re starting Game of Thrones! Every book in that series is massive! And I love how you unhaul your books. I really want to be better about getting rid of books I don’t enjoy and donating them to people who would appreciate them more.

    • I had met some classmates last semester who all loved GOT, and they keep on telling me to start reading it. But, I’m not doing it yet because it really is a massive book! And, I like doing community service, and maybe, it is a factor why I’m okay with donating my books. Thank you!


  2. Thanks for tagging me! I’m working on it right now, and it’ll be up soon 🙂 I totally agree about Throne of Glass! I’ve been so scared to start that series because of how many books there are, but everyone keeps telling me to read them…

  3. Aw that’s so nice to donate your book to a cause! I haven’t thought of that, but then again I don’t recall seeing any either over here, and all of the book i’d wanna unhaul is in french .. I’d donate them to thrift shops but oh boy the way they keep them all in a bin kind of saddens me..


    • Me being part of an organization whose very mission is to help and do humanitarian service contributed to it. 💕 Maybe, someday, you can donate those books too but now is not yet the time. 😊

    • You’re welcome! I did have fun checking my read piles and list to see which fit each questions. 😂 And, tell me if you did some spring cleaning today. 👀
