The Loves of My Life - My Bookcases Part 3

My Bookcases Part 3 - Let's Get Personal Again


**Don't miss my first two posts featuring my bookshelves. The first one 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! The second post takes an even more in depth look at my first bookcase and can be found here.

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.

A Quick Reminder of My Bookcase Organization:
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 2

High Importance/Very Special Shelf - Adult Edition

Quick Description: The top shelf in my smaller second bookcase features my very special shelf adult edition. 

Fun Fact: My copy of Shadow of Night is signed by: Deborah Harkness. Although I did not get to meet her myself, my husband got a family member to go to the signing (we didn't live nearby) and get me a copy and ship it to me as a surprise. Isn't he the best?

My Favorite Book on This Shelf: A Discovery of Witches by: Deborah Harkness

Messy ARC Shelf
Quick Description: This is my wonderful ARC shelf. I have read most of these, but there are a few I haven't gotten around to yet.

Fun Fact: Nicole from The Quiet Concert, a fellow book blogger/bestie got me a copy of Afterworlds by: Scott Westerfeld while she was in BEA as a surprise. I forever owe her. I plan on starting it very soon. :D

My Favorite Book on This Shelf: The Testing by: Joelle Charbonneau


Is it funny my engagement picture happens to be on a shelf with a lot of romance?
Quick Description: Here is a grouping of my adult books, mostly featuring Nicolas Sparks.

Fun Fact: You may not be able to see it well, but the second to last book on the right is Out of Sync by: Lance Bass. I was a mega huge Nsync fan (like crazy obsessive) when I was younger and Lance was my favorite.

My Favorite Book on This Shelf: Nineteen Minutes by: Jodi Picoult


Random
Quick Description: This shelf is just a random mix of young adult and adult books with a stack of TBR books sitting in front of them. It contains books I wanted to display but didn't really fit on the other shelves.

Fun Fact: I went to college with the author of How to Date An Alien! Magan Vernon also wrote The Only Exception and many other books. She is a really nice person and good author. :)

My Favorite Book on This Shelf: Fangirl by: Rainbow Rowell



Quick Description: My husband is the proud owner of the Game of Throne series. I sincerely hope to read them some day, and because of this I let him display these ones on his very own shelf...almost. Those three books in the corner are mine.

Fun Fact: I bought my husband The Lands of Ice and Fire which is a large book full of huge fold out maps of the whole Game of Thrones world, perfect for when he needs to once again explain to me which character is from where when watching the television show. 

My Favorite Book on This Shelf: Morrigan's Cross by: Nora Roberts

This concludes my bookcase posts. I hope you enjoyed them! Please feel free to share your bookshelves with me. I would love to see the bookcase behind the blogger. :)

  1. Love your engagement picture -- so cute! And love your story about the signed Deborah Harkness book! I have a similar story actually -- when we were dating, my hubby recruited his mom to go to a Diana Gabaldon signing in his hometown and get me a signed copy of Outlander as a surprise. Best. Present. Ever. :)

    1. I LOVE that you have such a similar story! I am also jealous that you have a signed copy of Outlander. I really need to read the rest of the series. What is my problem?!

  5. I won a signed ARC from Harkness and it has a special place on my bookshelf. I keep trilogies and series together, but that is as far as I organize. I like going up to my bookshelf and not knowing what I will discover.

    1. It happens, my bookcases get messy too at times when I get new books but haven''t figured out where to put them yet. Sometimes they can really pile up in weird places. :)

  8. 1. You don't owe me anything! It was the least I can do/a token of my appreciation for your existence :)
    2. I can't believe you own Out of Sync by Lance Bass. I don't know if any of my celebrity crushes have ever reached such heights ;)
    3. I concur with your sticky note on shelf 9.
    4. I really need to have a peak at The Lands of Ice and Fire - it sounds awesome.

    Thanks for sharing your bookshelves :)

    1. The day I found out Lance Bass was gay made me sad, only because I officially knew I would never have a chance. hahaha (like I did before obviously)

    2. Last weekend I played an NSync board game at Ashley's with Trivia questions and such. We were all terrible, it was hilarious. You would have come in handy for the Lance Bass questions ;)

  9. I am so jealous of your book cases. They are so pretty and organised and personal and plentiful. I wish I had as many as you haha.

    Also, Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult is one of my favourite books by her, along with House Rules. And secondly, I was a huge Lance fan too (completely heart broken when I found out he was gay). I'll have to read that book haha

    1. You need to read the Lance Bass book. ;)

      Thanks! I get almost all of my books as gifts for birthdays, Christmas, etc. Although last year I didn't get as many because my family said they were sick of only buying me books every year. haha

      Nineteen Minutes is my favorite Jodi Picoult as well.

      Delete
    2. I think I will haha.

      My family got like that after a while, so I tell them just to give me money, which i spend on books :P

      It's a brilliant book so it's understandable why it's your favourite :)

  10. I love that you own and have read The Circle Trilogy by Nora Roberts! I used to be obsessed with that trilogy. And adorable photo! Definitely fits with the romance books behind it. :) Beautiful bookshelves! I love seeing people's bookshelves! Thanks for sharing :D
