30 Books I’d Keep If I Were Marie Kondo

30 Books I'k Keep If I Were Marie Kondo

Welcome to my first post of Bookending Spring/Autumn. Today’s prompt is hosted by Sam from Fictionally Sam. I have too many books that I have no intention of reading or rereading. If I went into this giving reasons for each book, this post would be too long. For the most part, I’m keeping books that I love, books I received as gifts, books I’ll never get tired of reading.

  1. I COMPLETELY FORGOT ABOUT MY FIRST LOVE, SHAKESPEARE! *sobs in the corner at all the books left off her list*

    This is such a great list Sakhile! I haven’t read most of these, but some titles have peaked my interest! Girl Out Of Water by Laura Silverman especially!

    1. I loved Shakespeare when I was younger and I’m only keeping it for the aesthetic tbh…

      Girl Out Of Water is amazing, I hope you can read it some day 🙂
