Books I’m Removing From My Physical Shelves #6

The last time I uploaded one of these I said I probably wouldn’t actually get rid of these books before the next post and I was 100% correct. I keep forgetting they exist, which is part of the reason why this series exists in the first place.

My mom is staying with me next week, so I might try to either give some books to her or get her to help me take them to the charity shop.

Girlhood by Cat Clare

I remember reading this book, but I don’t remember anything about it. Which is never a good sign. 

I got this in the Zoella book club back in 2017, which is very funny to think about now. That book club did have some decent books in it though.

Synopsis: Harper has tried to forget the past and fit in at expensive boarding school Duncraggan Academy. Her new group of friends are tight; the kind of girls who Harper knows have her back. But Harper can’t escape the guilt of her twin sister’s Jenna’s death, and her own part in it – and she knows no one else will ever really understand.

But new girl Kirsty seems to get Harper in ways she never expected. She has lost a sister too. Harper finally feels secure. She finally feels…loved. As if she can grow beyond the person she was when Jenna died.

Then Kirsty’s behaviour becomes more erratic. Why is her life a perfect mirror of Harper’s? And why is she so obsessed with Harper’s lost sister? Soon, Harper’s closeness with Kirsty begins to threaten her other relationships, and her own sense of identity.

How can Harper get back to the person she wants to be, and to the girls who mean the most to her?

The Witch’s Kiss by Katharine Corr & Elizabeth Corr

I read this back in 2017 and I remember enjoying it, but again it isn’t something I’d ever want to re-read so it’s an easy remove. 

Synopsis: Sixteeen-year-old Meredith is fed-up with her feuding family and feeling invisible at school – not to mention the witch magic that shoots out of her fingernails when she’s stressed. Then sweet, sensitive Jack comes into her life and she falls for him hard. The only problem is that he is periodically possessed by a destructive centuries-old curse. Meredith has lost her heart, but will she also lose her life? Or in true fairytale tradition, can true love’s kiss save the day?

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

This series has been sitting on my shelves for about four years and I’ve never once thought about reading it. I ordered the entire series when I first moved to Brighton and didn’t have any books, I’d heard really great things about it, but never actually picked it up. 

If I ever did think about reading this, I’d buy it on my Kindle rather than have it taking up space on my shelves. 

Synopsis: Thou shalt kill.

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery. Humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.
