A while ago I made a blog post about if I could only keep 30 books. Now I thought I would try it again as my tastes have changed and I am not the same person I was when I made that post. Although I would like to change it up a bit and sort of put my own spin on it. So I incorporated three rules that I will have to abide by. Now it’s not just 30 books but an additional two things. It will make sense as you read on I promise.
Rule Number 1: I can chose three authors whose books I don’t have to count in my 30 books.
Rule Number 2: In addition to rule one I can chose three series to keep, that can include any future books in that series that are yet to be released.
Rule Number 3: Apart from when it clashes with the above two rules I can only have one book by each author.
Does that make sense? Hopefully if it does it will as we go on. This is going to be difficult. I can already tell that.
Anyone who knows me could probably skip this part as they will automatically know my three authors. I will buy anything they ever write without question. Do you know them yet?
Alice Oseman – There is nothing that anyone can say that will change how I feel about Alice’s books.
Marissa Meyer – It’s only recently, this year in fact, that I fell in love with her writing. Now I will buy anything she writes.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon – I love his books. Slowly working my way through them and not a single one so far has got less that 4 stars.
How many did you guess correctly? Did I surprise you with that last one? Bet it wasn’t what you thought it would be. Well let me tell you a secret. It wasn’t what I thought it would be either.
Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children – I did think about putting Random Riggs in authors but went with series due to him only having this series out.
Pages And Co – I didn’t expect to love this series as much as I have so far but it’s just so wholesome and I always love falling into a new story.
Villains Series – Not sure what this series is called but it’s the origin stories of Villains by Serena Valentino and its so good. I need more books in it.
Now we come to the part of this blog I have been dreading. Time to pick the 30 books. Got a feeling I am going to wish I could have more than 30. But let’s get into it.
And there we have it. That was so hard. I realised just how many books I wanted to keep. What books would you keep if you had to follow my rules? I would love to know.
Books mean the world to me and I would save them from a fire before family. My life revolves around books. Want to know more then all you have to do is ask me.
