So life has been all over the place with work and getting our flat ready for the arrival of our little baby in May (it’s so close, just 8 weeks now). We are currently staying in a one bedroom flat at the moment which meant that we had a lot of space to make for baby things. I have three bookcases at the moment and part of the compromise was that I had to reduce the amount of space that I was taking up with books (I love my books more than most things, but the baby is obviously more important!) So this meant that I had to condense down my bookcases and put some books away in the cupboard for now.
I thought that I would do a post on my bookcases before this happened because they won’t be looking too great by the end of this!
So, my first ever bookshelf tour!
These two bookcases are by far my favourite. All of my favourite books are here along with some cool merch. Just to note, the Lego Saturn V, the Lego Space Shuttle and the Lego Woman of NASA aren’t actually mine. They belong to my fiance (the Saturn V was actually my engagement present to him.) But they all look pretty cool so I let him keep them there. Along with the Lego on top is my Minas Tirith statue which is a movie collectable for the Lord of the Rings. It has a little compartment inside and I love it.
This is my Sarah J. Maas shelves along with a few others that I love. The Throne of Glass series has gotten too big for one box shelve but it’ll do for now. At least they are all together. There is another of my Lord of the Rings collectables. The statues of Argonath are actually bookends.
The Inheritance Cycle is one of my favourite series in paperback because they are nice and colourful. This Mortal Coil was a series I picked up recently about viruses because after reading The Blood of Eden I found that I actually really enjoy post-apocalyptic books caused by disease or viruses. The other statue of Argonath is hiding the Reckless series by Cornelia Funke as well as The Great Gatsby.
The Grisha verse, Rebel of the Sand, The Copper Promise, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series are all here. All great series and all beautiful. The Nightmare Before Christmas figures were a birthday present from my fiances mum. Apparently, they are toys.
Cassandra Clare books and the Spotless series (which is one of my favourite series ever). My Cassandra Clare books drive me mad because they are all different sizes because they get realised as huge books before normal-sized paperbacks and I’m too impatient to wait until they realise the smaller versions.
This bookcase has become an over-flow bookcase for me. It has a lot of books that I’ve had since I was a teen and careless with my books. But my complete collection of Lemony Snicket books which I love. Malorie Blackman’s Noughts and Crosses series is here. Obviously, there is the Harry Potter series (which I really didn’t enjoy) but I spent so much time looking for those editions of the books so I could start reading them that I HAD to give them a place on my shelf. The Lego pumpkin is actually my TBR jar. Can we just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful the leatherbound Barnes and Nobles Books are?
It’s going to be a while before my bookcase is looking good and organised how I want it to be. How do you organise your books? Have you done a bookshelf tour before? Drop the link in the comments. I love seeing other people’s bookcases!
Until next time.
