Current Book Unhaul

With Christmas coming up (and my bookshelves* filling up), I've decided to take advantage of the recent onslaught of little free libraries in my city and do some Christmas-cleaning. In order to make space for future books, I'm going to drop off four books at the little free libraries around town this upcoming week.** Hopefully, someone around the city wants one of these books and will get a pleasant surprise in their local LFL just in time for Christmas!

So, sans further ado, here are the books I'm giving away (and why):

*insofar as the floor can be considered a bookshelf, as my actual shelves are already stuffed

**This is a highly inefficient method, once you think about it, as I'll likely just pick up four more from each LFL

SNOW HAS COME. GOD BLESS.
Blog Inc. by Joy Deangdeelert Cho - This is a very good book if you're trying to start a blog and have no idea what the Internet is, but if you have two cents of common sense you'll find the contents of his book to be terribly obvious and basic. (As in, I got this three months into blogging and already knew all the information it contained.) There may be one or two handy tips, but you can easily find those on the Internet.

It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini - As detailed here, I have Definite Feelings on this book and its contents. I know I'm never going to read it again - and I didn't even enjoy reading it the first time - so why is it taking up space on my shelf?

The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh - Although this is a pretty good book, it's the second installment in a duology - and I see little to no point to owning the second book if I don't own the first. (Unless the second book happened to be insanely good, which this one wasn't.)

The Sacred Acre by Mark Tabb - This was required reading for school, and I had to drag myself through every single page. Definitely not keeping it.

Let's chat! Have you read any of these books? Would you keep them or give them away? What would be on your book unhaul? Comment below, and remember that you are all very beautiful pickles. <3

Namarië,
