So my bookshelves are overflowing…and lately I have been purchasing books at a quicker pace than I have been donating them. So I decided to unhaul a bunch of books and try my luck with them at Half Price Books; the rest will go to my local library or my local thrift shop.
**Just a note, just because I am unhauling these books, it is not necessarily because they were bad and I am definitely not saying that you should not read them. Space is just a premium for me right now and as a college student, I would love the extra cash.
I received this book as a prize for a summer reading challenge from the library. I picked this title up because none of the other ones interested me. I believe this book probably has a young target audience, since the library was willing to give it away to middle schoolers. I just don’t have any interest in reading it.
This was initially my mother’s book. I am not really into mystery books (I was never the Nancy Drew kind of girl) and as a kid this was just not up my alley. Years later, it still is not.
I had to purchase this book for a class, and while the speeches of Cicero’s that I was assigned to read were interesting enough, it is not enough of a motivator for me to study the rest of his speeches willingly.
Again, I had to read this for a class. I was not super interested in the plot, however, so I don’t anticipate me ever finishing the book. Ancient Roman humor and Roman cultural values just do not overlap with my own sense of humor and values.
This is a book that is part of the Gallagher Girls series. It was a series that I loved as a middle schooler, but I have a sinking feeling that this series would not appeal to me at the age that I am right now.
I liked this book, but I don’t think I will complete this series, never mind reread it, so it’s time to let this one go.
This a simplified retelling of the events of the Trojan War. I read this in elementary school when I told my mother I wanted to read Odyssey (I was a crazy child, no?) so she bought me this instead.
I’ve wanted to read The Alchemist forever but ended up buying a Spanish version online. Whoops.
I love this series, but I don’t think it’s worth keeping this copy since I do not have the rest of the series. I’m also probably not going to reread this particular installment of the story, since I thought the two preceding it were superior.
I really enjoyed this book, but I can’t see myself rereading it. I felt as though I am past the age where I can really and truly sympathize with the protagonist of this book, who is a girl on the cusp of puberty.
Again, I liked this series. However, I do not own the series so I don’t see any reason to keep it. It wouldn’t be worth it to just reread this installment and this installment only.
This is a great middle grade read, which is around the age that I read this book. However, now I’d rather just read actual Shakespeare.
I am definitely not going to reread this book. I’m gonna stick To Kill A Mockingbird and be satisfied, thanks.
