We look back at our bookhauls from the previous year every month, but we also thought it’s be interesting to look back at a few years ago to see how much we’ve actually read. Hopefully this will also be motivation to pick up books we still haven’t read or maybe even do an unhaul. This will probably be a pretty long post, haha. Isabelle posted her 2018 bookhauls last week. Now it’s my turn. Keep on reading to see how many of the books I’ve read that were put in my shelves in 2018!

If I’m honest there are less books that were added to my shelves than I expected! And I did a lot better than I expected as well. There are definitely quite a few books on here that I really want to read now that I’ve seen them again, haha. Have you read any of my unread books and think I need to pick it up immediately? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
