Good afternoon fellow Book Lovers…
Today I am here to share with you the current state of my bookshelves.
To start with I will give you an overview of the entire thing:
As you can see, I only have one bookshelf 🙁 But I have managed to triple stack in most places. The top shelf has reference books, review books and huge series that would make my TBR wall far to big. Above that (couldn’t fit it into the photo) are my accounting books and the only book in the world that I want to burn….the Australian Tax Guide.
Next is the favourites shelf, all of my favourite books and favourite covers go here.
Third shelf from the top houses Harry Potter, Lemony Snicket and Robin Hobb, three masters of writing that I couldn’t fit on the favourites shelf…but they were my childhood favourites.
Fourth down is the Horrible Histories magazine collection plus various two and three star books…if I were actually willing to part with books (even those I hate) they would be in great danger (not the Horrible Histories of course…they’re hilarious).
Bottom shelf are books that I have considered getting rid of..but still haven’t. My scrapbook that I no longer fill in and some tarot stuff that I don’t use regularly…seeing as this shelf is behind my book wall..it doesn’t get much use.
Then we have the book wall at the bottom…that is my TBR pile.
Next, an in depth look at the favourites shelf. Here you will find authors like Jeaniene Frost off to the right, Jennifer Echols on the left, my Sookie Stackhouse and Vampire Academy books are up the back. At the front there is Karen Marie Moning and Laurell K Hamilton, as well as Molly Harper and Nicole Peeler.
This is a deeper look at the left side of the favourites shelf, behind the Molly Harper books is the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, Hush Hush and Graceling are also there as is Forbidden. I don’t think I’d class Forbidden as a favourite, but it is a five star book and was very well written, so I feel it deserves its place there.
On this side of the favourites shelf we find a stack of Jeaniene Frost and also a book called Next of Kin by John Boyne (just behind the Laurell K Hamilton stack) this is probably one of my favourite books of all time
On the third shelf we have Harry Potter (yeay!) up in the back right corner and Robin Hobb just in front of that. The rest of this shelf isn’t too noteworthy though, I have just realised how many werewolf books are on this shelf actually…compared to the favourites shelf which houses vampires and magic. Coincidence?
And here is my pride and joy, the book wall. All of my TBR books aranged into a sturdy wall. I can literally pull any book out of there and the wall will still stand. There are currently about 70 books that make up that wall.
So there you have it, my shelf as it currently stands in all its glory. If any one is wondering, yes that shelf is inside my wardrobe, because my mum “doesn’t want any books on show”. That book wall is the bane of her existence 🙂
Hope you like.
