Have I Read the Books From My Christmas Hauls Since Blogging?

Sometimes random things come into your head and will not let you go. Like after my birthday book haul I wondered how much of those in the past I had read (which will be coming next year) and later on I realized I could do the same thing to Christmas hauls since I do end up getting a decent amount of books then too.

Sometimes it is just good to look at what you haul and what of those you actually read. Sometimes it just has to do with mood or a change in taste. Or just because you have so many books to read you can’t possibly read them all in a year. It happens to the best of us.

This is a pretty decent percentage here. The only one I’ve not read is the one from a Dutch author that is likely going to get unhauled in 2020 (though it is signed). I still haven’t had the interest to pick it up and at some point you gotta let go.

I’ve been a little put off by Brandon Sanderson as of late because I’ve heard he isn’t always the greatest person. I still want to try The Way of Kings but we shall see.

A 100%. Would you believe that? And of the last Christmas haul too. I am mighty proud haha.

Do you always read all the books from your christmas or birthday hauls right away or do you keep them for when the mood comes around?

  1. I’d rather not take a look back at my birthday and holiday hauls as I already know there are several I never had a chance to read. Though in my defence – it wasn’t just due to migraines and major life upsets that took me away from the stories themselves but major natural disaster epic storms and several power outages and a lot of personal adversities over the years… strangely, I’m as excited to read them once I sort out where I put them? (most of my personal library as a book blogger has been stored in boxes…) Good point though – to keep or unhaul. I rather unhaul. I’m such a mood reader at times as I like to read certain stories at certain times and other moments, I find myself randomly tucking into a book and curious why it took me so long to be reading it? Quirky. I’m definitely quirky!

  2. Oh, dat is ook een leuke manier om op te volgen. Ik ben nu beetje bij beetje de voorbije jaren onder de loep aan het liggen. Maar je verjaardag en Kerstmis zijn inderdaad de twee momenten op een jaar waar je het meeste nieuwe leesvoer bij elkaar sprokkelt. Tot nu toe viel het nog vrij goed mee maar ik vermoed dat dat gaat veranderen wanneer ik aan de latere jaren ga beginnen.
