I am a little nervous about sharing this with you honestly because I just find this so embarrassing. But today I am going to share with you what books I own but have not read.
I didn’t actually think it was this bad, until I started pulling the books from the shelf to take pictures. Then I realised I haven’t read basically half of what I own.
The pictures are organised in genre as that is how my shelves are organized. If you see a book that you think I HAVE to read right away, let me know!

Books I’ve Half-Read
*Complete Sherlock Holmes* *The Catcher in the Rye* *Charles Dickens Ghost Stories* *Elizabeth Is Missing* *The Book of Lost Things* *Memoirs of a Geisha* *Scarlet* *Horns* *The Mime Order*
So overall I have 112 unread books on my bookshelf. I really want to try and get this to below 20 before the end of 2017 so in 2017 I plan on going on a ‘secondhand’ book-buying-ban.
Basically the main reason why I have so many unread books is because most of them only cost me £1 or sometimes less so I end up just thinking ‘Why Not?’ and then buy more books than I need. So all of the books I buy in 2017 will be new so I won’t be able to buy so many. Or at least, that’s the plan.
Thanks for reading
