Happy Thursday friends! Today I am doing the Spring Cleaning book tag, which I saw on Sophril Reads whilst looking for some new tags to do.

Respond to the scenarios
Tag 5 people (or however many you like)
It’s time to make your bed, but you’re going to have some friends over later and want to pick the perfect book to place on your nightstand for them all to see that you’re “reading”. Which book do you choose?
Ha! If my friends come over to visit, they’re probably not going to be in my bedroom. I’m also not sure I would want any particular book to be there in a showy “look at what I’m reading” kind of way, because I read what I love and I don’t care who knows it. Right now, I would probably want to show off a copy of Vulture by Bex Hogan (I don’t have one yet, but I have read an early copy on Netgalley) and I would love to get everyone reading this series.
Oh no! The house needs dusting, but you just can’t put that book you’re reading down! What book would you buy on audio just so you could continue the story while cleaning?
Fun fact about me: I can’t listen to audio fiction books if I haven’t read them previously because my brain just will not follow the story. Books I have bought on audio just to listen to the story again immediately after finishing a physical copy are The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven, and The Once and Future Witches by Alix E Harrow.
Darn it! The ceiling is leaking! Turns out Mass-Market Paperbacks are the best things to soak water up! Which popular book do you use to soak up the water?
None that I actually own, but I would happily pile up any books by She Who Must Not Be Named or the E.L.James books to soak up the water.
Bathrooms need a good scrubbing, and your 2007 Cosmos are a little outdated and need replacing. What book do you place in the bathroom for some light reading for when people need to take care of business?
I do not understand people who keep books in the bathroom to read whilst they’re using the facilities. Even if you are just in the bath…surely you take the book from your room / shelves to the bath? If I were going to have something in the bathroom it would have to be one of those posters with a whole story on it, framed so I could keep it clean and hygienic.
Family is coming over, but you have no idea what to make for dinner! You read somewhere that tearing up the last chapter of a book whose ending you hated and sprinkling it in a casserole dish makes for the perfect meal! Which book do you choose?
Can I go way back in time and say We Can Be Mended by Veronica Roth because I absolutely despised that extra ending to the series? I feel like putting anything that you hated into a casserole dish would make things a little bitter though.
Organization is key, right? When it comes time to organize your bookshelf, you realize you have enough room (and money) to get three new books! Which books do you buy?
Oh. I have a whole wish list of stuff ready for this kind of situation. Right now, I would pre-order Empire of the Vampire by Jay Kristoff and buy Me, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow by Benjamin Dean, and The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar.
Finally, some peace and quiet! But, before you can relax, you realize you forgot to send your Aunt a thank you gift for the lovely “ADULT LIFE FOR DUMMIES” book she gave you for Christmas (maybe she’s trying to tell you something?). What book do you send to her to show her how much (this is sarcasm) you appreciate her gift?
I don’t have an Aunt who would do this. I have a very elderly aunt who used to buy me amazing books when I was younger, and another Aunt who bought me dark and twisty books. If I did have a person like this in my life I would probably send them a picture book about kindness – something like Kindness is my Superpower by Alicia Ortego or Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers.
As usual, I’m not going to tag anyone particular to do this one, but if you do it, please let me know! I’d genuinely love to see all your answers!
