The Spring Cleaning Book Tag 🌸 New Releases, Unhauling & Series

Spring Cleaning Tag

Hello fellow bookworms 🌸 Spring is slowly arriving here and the days are getting warmer. It was perfect timing that Dini @ dinipandareads tagged me for the Spring Cleaning Book Tag! You should definitely check out her blog, I love reading her posts πŸ₯° The Tag was originally created by Amanda @ Between the Shelves 🌸

I’m Tagging 🌸

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

➽ I have SO many series that I’ve been wanting to read! In the end, I choose Chilling Effect, an Adult Sci-Fi series about a ship captain who gets into trouble, and apparently, lots of chaos ensues. The reason I picked this series is that it features psychic cats and I only recently realized that the cats are actually on the cover πŸ˜‚ No idea why I didn’t see them sooner, but I love that ALL covers for the series have the cats 🐈

I’m this cat!

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

➽ Despite being a planner at heart, my bookshelves don’t have an intricate organization system πŸ˜‚ I usually keep my favorite books at the very top shelf, have a TBR shelf in the middle, and then organize them according to the genre. I also take into account the height of the books, I hate when series have height differences 😭

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

➽ I included some books for this that I’ll likely unhaul in the future! Unhauling physical books is always a bit tricky here, as I get almost nothing for them and most libraries prefer to receive German books. The Pearl Thief is part of the Code Name Verity series and while I loved the other books, this prequel was a huge disappointment! An unpopular opinion is that I likely won’t keep my copies of the Shades of Magic Trilogy. I really liked the first book when I read it a couple of years ago, but the sequels were so underwhelming for me πŸ˜•

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

➽ I have many comfort books, but more people need to read Cat’s CafΓ©!Β It’s a graphic novel about a coffee shop and the animals that frequent it. The collection of stories is super wholesome and yet also talks about mental health, insecurity and friendships! It’s almost impossible not to find the characters endearing πŸ₯Ί

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

➽ I do love when books include food as a central theme!!Β One of the more memorable books are Legends and Lattes (about a coffee shop that includes descriptions of delicious pastries) and Crumbs (a bakery that offers pastries with magical properties) β˜• So I guess the theme is pastries and coffee for this question πŸ˜„

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

➽ I started at the very top shelf and the fifth book is The Sword of Summer!Β I keep all my favorites on this shelf, including all the Rick Riordan books πŸ˜„ The Magnus Chase series is one of my favorite series by him – I really need to reread it someday!

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

  • Where Echoes Die (Courtney Gould) πŸ“– June 20th
  • New Adult (Timothy Janovsky) πŸ“–
  • Bookshops & Bonedust (Travis Baldree) πŸ“–

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

πŸ“– 8 Books πŸ“–

➽ It was super interesting to see what my longest series was!Β I only looked for series that were completed/that I’m caught up on at the moment. The really long series were 6 books at max (e.g. Vampire Academy, Miss Peregrine’s) or old childhood favorites. But there’s one long series and that is the Wayward Children series!! The 8th book came out this year and I’m caught up at the moment – there will be more books coming in the future. I really like these portal fantasy novellas πŸ₯°

  1. Bookshops and Bonedust! YES! 😍 I’m ridiculously excited about that book cos Legends & Lattes was one of my favourite reads last year. So cosy and so satisfying πŸ₯° I hadn’t heard of Chilling Effect before but it sounds really fun. I’m gonna check it out. Great post, I really enjoyed reading your answers, Caro! πŸ˜ƒ

    1. Bookshops and Bonedust is going to be great!! I loved Legends and Lattes as well, so I’m happy to read more books set in this universe πŸ₯° Chilling Effect sounds so fun, I love a good sci-fi from time to time!
      Thank you so much πŸ’•

  2. cat’s cafe looks so fun and cute, i’ll definitely have to check out since i’ve been wanting more graphic novel recs! i organize my books by color, but i’ve debated separating my tbr books like you do to shame myself into reading them haha (or to visually see what’s on my tbr). this was so fun to read! ❀

    1. Cats Cafe is one of my favorite graphic novels, it’s so touching and wholesome πŸ₯° Ohh I love seeing a good rainbow shelf!! I like having my TBR shelf, so I don’t forget about the books I still have to read πŸ™ˆ Thank you πŸ’•

  3. This is such a fun tag! I’ve actually read Chilling Effect and I have the sequel Prime Deceptions to get to soon. I will say the psychic cats don’t feature that much in the story (for the first book anyway), but it’s absolutely hilarious and I highly recommend it. It’s probably the funniest sci-fi I’ve ever read, with a really compelling plot too. 😁

    I actually couldn’t even finish A Darker Shade of Magic, so you aren’t alone in not loving that series! πŸ˜… I have quite a few ways of organising my shelves – I have my favourites all together by series and genre, my other books sorted into paperback and hardback, then my standalones are in rainbow order! And the longest series I’ve ever read is the Morganville Vampires at 15 books long! I love a long series and that one is still my favourite. ❀️

    1. Glad to hear that you liked Chillign Effect, if I remember correctly I saw it on your blog πŸ₯° I had a feeling this would be a fun book and I’ll take any mention of the psychic cats I can get πŸ˜„ I love sci-fi books that are funny!

      I read A Darker Shade of Magic ages ago, I should have just read the sequels back then πŸ™ˆ Glad I’m not the only one with several bookshelf organization methods! I never read this series, but if I love a series, I’m very happy if it’s long πŸ₯°
