Or at least not so many as you think should! Because the book is amazing! Why is no one talking about it!? I have a bunch of these books, so today I'm talking about all of them πŸ™‚ These are some books from my book shelf that I haven't seen anyone talk about recently and I think need a little more hype.

Book Unhaul #3

Recently I decided to purge my book shelfs, to go into the new year with less stuff (I still have to get rid of most of the books.. but mentally and emotionally they're gone from my life, just not physically) and I thought I'd make a few Unhaul posts (yes there are that many) talking about the books and saying why I want to get rid of them!
