I have posted a few hauls on my BookTube channel over the last year and a half and I have been curious whether or not I actually read the books that I haul. I decided to go through each of my hauls and let you know which ones I have read, which ones are still on my TBR, and which ones I have unhauled!
Out of the eleven books that I hauled in this video, I have read six of them, which isn’t great but isn’t terrible. I had mixed feelings about the ones I did read but none of them ended up being favourites.
I unhauled The Absolute Book because it was sent to me unsolicited by the publisher and it is 640 pages. I just know that I will never prioritize it and it has a pretty low rating on Goodreads!
I have plans to buddy read Dear Edward in August and would love to get to Hall of Smoke in the fall. So I feel good about both of those!
I hope that you enjoyed this update and I am crossing my fingers that the next part goes a little bit better, but I don’t have high hopes!

6 out of 11 is NOT bad at ALL. I have a habit of buying/borrowing books and never getting around to reading them. It’s a serious problem.
Book buying and reading are two different hobbies in my mind!
This is such a good idea! I’d like to do a similar post, but I’m kind of scared, lol, since I’m pretty sure I haven’t read half the books I hauled.
Haha I was nervous to do this too. I’m sure it only gets worse from here!
6 out of 11 read and 1 unhauled is not bad odds at all! That means you got through 63% of them one way or another, so your odds are better than mine! (I’ve been reviewing my 2020 book hauls lately—though I have a BUNCH of ebooks included in that year’s haul, too.)
I’m so glad I didn’t include ebooks. I’d be overwhelmed!!
I completely understand! I think I’ve done a lot better at actually reading the physical books I’ve gotten compared to ebooks. (Though I’m a little scared to find out, LOL)
Love this! Im doing one similar with my tbr books for the first half of the year.
That’s smart! It’s definitely eye opening!
That’s really good! I dread to think what mine is!
I’m sure it’s all downhill for me from here!
Oooh I’ve been trying read more of my owned books, but naturally once I read one, somehow I end up buying like 3 more 😂📚
That is my exact problem!
