2017 TBR Books Shame Tag - Update #2

Hi booklovers

Out of my 170 unread books I've so far read:
- 9 books that were on my TBR from before 2017
- 7 books that were on my TBR from 2017

I've bought 31 books. 

I think it's safe to say I'm not making a dent in my TBR at all. And you know what, I'm okay with that. I like having a variety of books to choose from and as long as I don't have a TBR of over 250 books, it's alright.

This being said, I am very happy with my reading this year. Even though I've only read 16 books of my physical TBR, I've been reading a lot of graphic novels, a couple of review e-books and I've been rereading some books as well in order to continue with / finish series that I've started before.

(I will be doing a blogpost on the series that I've started and hopefully will be able to finish this year.)

How's your TBR of shame doing so far this year? Let me know in the comments.

Bye for now
