I started uni last month. This involved moving away from home to live on campus. I knew that I couldn't bring my entire book collection (as much as I wanted to) as there’ s simply not enough space in my room. So I had to be selective of which books were coming with me and which ones had to stay home till semester recess. It was super hard cause I love all my books and wanted to have them all with me, but space would not allow it.
The first book that I brought with me was The Complete Works of Jane Austen because I really want to read more of her works, I have previously read Emma and Pride and Prejudice, I really enjoyed both of them, plus it's like five or six books for one. I don’t know when I’ll get to them though.
The next book I brought with me was Will Grayson, Will Grayson because that is the March pick for the Green-a-thon and seeing as I won't be going home till April met that I needed to bring it with me.
At the time I left for uni I was reading The Gilded Wolves so I brought it with me, because there was no way I was leaving it behind.
The next three books I brought with me are The Hidden Oracle, The Dark Prophecy and The Burning Maze. I read the first one when it was released, read it and enjoyed it but just never continued on with the series and promptly forgot what happened. I just finished my reread of The Hidden Oracle, so I'll be reading the others soon.
The final two books I brought with me were Strange the Dreamer and Muse of Nightmares. I really enjoyed Strange the Dreamer when it came out and brought Muse of Nightmares asap, but I haven’t had the chance to read it yet. I’m currently re-reading Strange the Dreamer before I read Muse of Nightmares because it felt like a long time since I read it.
I was selective when picking what to bring with me, being aware of both space and the fact that I would buy more books once I was here (spoiler I have), so I focused on the books that I was most excited to read. Hopefully I'll get to all of them soon.
Do you have trouble with selecting books when you have to go somewhere? And have you ever had to?
