The Purge…of Books.

Today has been awful.

It was like a horror movie, but it was real.

My mother said I could only have ten books.


We were cleaning out my room (that I share with my two sisters), and when we got to where I usually keep my books, she said that they all had to be donated to the charity shop, but I could keep ten of them.

I’m only allowed ten books!!!! That was hard enough to get my head around, but then I actually had to choose ten books to keep, out of the whole lot. It was painful – I mean, excruciatingly painful – and I ended up changing my mind half a dozen times, but that’s not even the worst part.


I can only keep ten books in total.

In other words, if I buy any other books, I have to give away some of my existing books so it remains ten. Ten!!!

My heart is very heavy right now, and I am mourning the loss of my beloved books. May you all rest in peace. May someone read you again.

    • City of Bones, City of Ashes, Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince, Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda, Beautiful Chaos, Beautiful Redemption, Glass Houses, Poison Study, and Fans Of The Impossible Life. Trust me, it was easier choosing my subjects for A-Levels when I was in school (and a lot less painful.)

  1. Sorry about your loss. I do not think I could make a choice. I am not good at making decisions, besides all my books are precious to me.
