The Revolving Bookshelf

I feel like I should explain what I mean so here goes. Basically, this is just a fancy phrase for I unhaul a lot. Queue screams of panic where people say how can you get rid of books. 

Well I just can.

So where it did start you might ask? Well almost two years ago I moved which meant goodbye books. I was only aloud one book shelf in my room that doesn't allow for double stacking so cue the unhaul. Still isn't to say I didn't get rid of books before of course I did. Ones that didn't like, ones that I was no longer interested in or childhood books that I would never read. Let's face it if I wasn't interested away they go.

It has gone a bit far though. I do consistently go through my shelves to see which books I don't want anymore and which I don't. I promise you I am still interested in books and still have way many books, but it does help. I definitely have less books than I did which is good.

I just read a book and see if I want to keep it or not. A lot of the books I do give to charity or sell them on which is quite food for when I am poor as a student.

So why the revolving bookshelf. Well because my bookshelf always represents my favourites and ones that I want to read so that's good. 

It is safe to say that I will always be a serial unhauler and hopefully will continue to keep books that I love.

I hope that this all makes sense.

Do you unhaul books? Let me know in the comments below.

See you soon,

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
