4 reasons why I’m currently on a (long) book buying ban

2018-02-18 15.13.44

Lately I have noticed a big change in my book buying habit. Where I previously bought any book I thought I might like, I haven’t bought any books in 2018 so far. This is partly because I’m taking part in the #theunreadshelfproject2018, but also because of many other reasons. Today’s post is dedicated to those reasons!

Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge || Update #2

2018-02-14 17.11.08

Since my last and first update on my progress in the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge I have read another four books! Because there are 339 books in total on the list, I still have quite some left, but I still wanted to give you guys an update on how I’m faring when it comes to reading the books Rory Gilmore reads in the TV series Gilmore Girls. Fun fact: somehow I still haven’t watched all of the series … I’m not that good at watching series apparently! Without further ado, let’s get on with my progress!

Getting through my TBR || #theunreadshelfproject

2018-01-13 11.22.25

In my bookish New Year’s resolutions of 2018 you could read that I’m now really devoted to diminishing the amount of books on my TBR. With all the books that aren’t on Goodreads, I now own about 130 unread books. Of course, it’s nice to know that if there was to be an apocalypse and I couldn’t leave my house for whatever reason, at least I wouldn’t be without a new book for a year! On the other hand, why buying all those books – or actually, hoard – if I don’t actually read them?! That’s why I was determined to put myself on a book buying ban until I’ve read a good amount of books on my TBR!

Did I accomplish my new year’s resolutions of 2017?

2017-12-27 12.27.52

At the start of 2017 I didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions when it comes to health, excersise or my social life. Instead I had some bookish goals I wanted to complete by the end of the year. Now that the end of 2017 is nearing I was wondering if I perhaps accomplished (some of) my resolutions I made in January 2017? Let’s take a look …

Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge || Update #1

2017-09-15 12.03.59

After seeing and reading a lot about the TV show called Gilmore Girls on bookstagram, I recently fell in love with the cozy show myself. I love the characters and the fact that Rory is an avid reader, like myself. I’ve seen people talking about this reading challenge inspired by the books that are featured in the show. It consists of a total of 339 books (!) and I’ve made it a personal goal to eventually read all the books on this list, mostly because a lot of the books on there are books that have been on my TBR for a long time or because I feel like I just have to read them someday.
