We all know that I like to hoard my tags like a greedy dragon, but this is going to shock you. Almost one year ago Jess and Teagan @ Fiction No Chaser tagged me in the Spring Cleaning tag and I proceeded to hold onto it until it became springtime again. Because of course I did. But I’ve been doing some Spring Cleaning of my post drafts since it is springtime in the Northern hemisphere and it looks like so much fun that today is the day, friends!
If you aren’t already following Fiction No Chaser, you really should rectify that immediately because their reviews are hilarious, boozy, and honest. And they are awesome people to boot.

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?
This question cracks me up because it assumes that I’m not a hermit and have people over these days, but also because I’ve had A Tale of Two Cities on my nightstand for like fifteen years. I want to read it but my goodness does it bore me!
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?
I will forever listen to the Illuminae Files audiobooks. In fact any time that I am on a plane or cleaning I tend to listen to Gemina.
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?
This question has caused me a lot of turmoil because on one hand I don’t want to shit on a book that someone else enjoys, but on the other hand The Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll angered me so freaking much that I would want to destroy every copy.
Bathrooms need a good scrubbing, and your 2007 Cosmos are a little outdated and need replacing.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 have like two years worth of The New Yorker in my bathroom for those guests that never come, but I tend to just bring whatever book I am reading with me when I need to take care of business myself.
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?
This is a really weird recipe, but Rule by Ellen Goodlett was a book that I hated a lot.
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?
This is insanely difficult for me because until very recently I have been fortunate enough to be able to buy the books I wanted. Most of the ones I want haven’t been released yet, so assuming that there is time travel involved: This Vicious Cure by Emily Suvada, A House of Rage and Sorrow by Sangu Mandanna, and Storm of Locusts by Rebecca Roanhorse in paperback to match my copy of Trail of Lightning.
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 am stealing Teagan’s answer here: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson.
