My Bookcases Part 2 - Let's Get Personal
|Maybe not this personal... but I couldn't pass up this gif. I do love my books. ;)|
**Don't miss my first post featuring my bookshelves. It can be found here. I participated in a fun exercise where I really examined what books are on my shelves. Check it out and join in on the fun!
Now I will finally show you what my bookcases look like, after they have been cleaned up just a little bit of course. (Get super freaking excited to fangirl and judge away.) I apologize for the not so great photos, but I don't have a nice camera and the lighting in my living room isn't great. Anyway, I will shut up now, or at at least long enough to finally post the pictures.
The General Organization of My Bookcases
I labeled them so you could all follow along a little better and use this photo as a reference if needed.
I order my bookcases basically by my mood, how much I love a book, shelf space, and if they are adult or young adult. I hope you will be able to see the pattern (or at least what I think is a pattern but really probably isn't to anyone but myself) as you read along. At the very least you can sit back and relax while reading my bookish rambling.
A Tour of Bookcase 1 (My 1st Real Bookcase)
|My Very Special Shelf|
Fun Fact: My copy of Allegiant is signed by Veronica Roth. I got to meet her! Read about that embarrassing story here.
My Favorite Book on This Shelf: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
|An Ode to Riordan|
Fun Fact: The Maze Runner is in paperback because I needed it for a college course (the best one I ever took). I bought the other ones later when they first came out.
My Favorite Book on This Shelf: The House of Hades by Rick Riordan
|The Shelf That Makes Me Feel/Look Smart|
Fun Fact: My Sony Reader is on top of my James Boswell book. I store it on my bookcase because I even want my reader to be on display. My husband said I should buy a digital rotating picture frame and put the covers of the books I have on my reader on there so I can really display my e-books. I just laughed at him...or did I?
My Favorite Book on This Shelf: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
|Half and Half|
Fun Fact: These are just the latest Janet Evanovich books, I actually own all the books in the Stephanie Plum series, a huge mix of paperbacks and hardcovers.
My Favorite Book on This Shelf: Any of the Tomorrow Series books.
|Mostly My Husband's Shelf|
Fun Fact: Most of my husband's books were purchased by me and given to him as gifts.
My Favorite Book on This Shelf: Texts From Dog by October Jones (This is my husband's book but I read it and it is hilarious. Its the little short book towards the left-hand side.)
** Come back next Friday (July 25th) to get more behind the scenes pictures of my bookish life. I will be featuring a close look at bookcase 2. Until then, happy reading!
