Just like previous years, I thought it might be a fun idea to put together all the books I bought this year. I’ll tell you how many books I bought, how many of them are hardcover, or paperback. How many of them I’ve read, and how many are still unread. I’ll also show you all the graphic novels and comics I’ve bought. So without further ado, let’s dive in! All the books in italics are unread, all the books in bold are books I didn’t pay for myself.

In 2017, I added 104 books to my evergrowing collection. 20 of those were either gifts, books my mum bought for me, or ARCs I either won or gotten for free at my local bookstore. 84 were books I bought with my own money or book vouchers. I added 26 Hardcovers to my collection, next to 78 paperbacks. Out of the 104 books, I have read 63 of them, while 41 are still unread.
I have also gotten rid of a few books this year, some of them I sold through a Facebook group, some I left behind on Lanzarote (there were bookshelves at the hotel where you could take and leave books).
Hopefully, I’ll manage to read some of the unread books I got this year in 2018 because that will definitely be one of my goals for the new year. And of course, hopefully, I’ll manage to bring down my book buying, as this is just a tad bit too much.
