Looking back on my March 2020 book haul

From February until May 2020 I tracked my book hauls on my blog (after that it became too awkward to mention me buying 3583993 books each month). From February until May 2021 I will look back on my book hauls from last year and reflect on whether I read the books I bought or not.


How to Find Love in a Bookshop – Veronica Henry

Read

I recently read and annotated this book and I loved the experience of annotating it and doodling in it.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Paris for One and Other Stories – Jojo Moyes

Unread

I do really want to read this book very soon, as it sounds like a feel good book!


I Might Regret This – Abbi Jacobson

Read

I thought this book was okay. I didn’t particularly like this book, but I also didn’t particularly dislike this book.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Educated – Tara Westover

Unhauled

I always kept putting this book aside, so I decided to unhaul it. I don’t think I would’ve read it very soon.


Generaal Zonder Leger – Özcan Akyol

Read

This was a Dutch book that was sold for the occasion of the Book Week in Belgium. I thought this essay book contained a lot of interesting information.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Leon & Juliette – Annejet Van Der Zijl

Read

This book was also published for the Book Week in Belgium. The story deals with colonialism and the effects of it. I thought it was really interesting and confronting.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Je bent jong en je rouwt wat – Lisanne Van Sadelhoff

Read

The subject of this book is grief. Freely translated, the title is You’re young and you’re grieving. I really loved this book. It made me very emotional.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I read approximately 71% of the books I bought in March 2020. I love that the ratio is still this high! I didn’t expect that.

  1. I started annotating with tabs last fall and I fell in love. I feel like I get so much more out of my reads!! This is an awesome post and I wonder if I should start keeping track!! Great job, 71% is a very high percentage!

    1. Yes, same! And I love looking back at my books at look through the different pages i tabbed 🙈 it also really helps me writing reviews in a way! & thank you so much! I’d definitely love reading your progress on it!

      1. Yes, it definitely helps with reviews. I think it’s made them easier in some ways. I love that instead of saying, “remember this quote” and completely forgetting, I can tab it!!

  2. This is such a great idea. I’ve struggled with getting through all my owned tbr books, so I made it a goal to read them more throughout 2021. When you mentioned “buying 3583993 books each month” I related to that so much, that was basically me in 2020! 😂💕

    1. I got the idea for this post for thebookdutchesses (https://thebookdutchesses.com/) 🙂
      I also really struggle with reading the books on my physical tbr! I mostly read arcs or ebooks and neglect my physical TBR (sos).
      In 2020, I seriously did buy waaaaay too much books in a month, looking back on it I feel shame hahaha!
