At the end of my first decade as a reader here is what my bookshelves look like.

The Rainbow Shelves

The Red- Orange Shelf

The Green-Blue Shelf

The Blue-Purple Shelf

The White-Black Shelf

The Big Shelves

Classics written by women (starting with a Virginia Woolf stack), Shakespere bilingual set, ending in some non-fiction.

My absolute favourite books of all time, featuring:

  • The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
  • Six of Crows & The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo
  • The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
  • The Picture of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde
  • Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie
  • A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
  • Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss
  • The only Harry Potter books I own

Middle grade & a rainbow of diverse YA contemporary

Miscellaneous shelves

Poetry, graphic novels, fiction by Romanian authors

Fairytales, folklore & history

I have a total of 300 something odd books and I cherish them all, mismatched covers and everything. If any are offended by the fact that the series are not together , if we shadows have offended, think but this, and all is mended: the books are facing with the spine outwards so I didn’t make you see all the dog eared pages 🙂 . Aren’t I merciful.

Here’s to a house made of books upon books by the end of the new decade.

  1. Your bookshelves impress me! I will try not to be too jealous. 😉 I love collecting books, but I am not very good at organizing them. It is fun to admire other people’s bookshelves though. Here’s to another book-filled ten years! (raises an invisible glass of butterbeer to toast you and your bookshelves)

    1. Yeah I’ve developed great Tetris skills over the years as you can see. *Raises an actual glass of the tears of mine foes, to toast back whilist maintaining eye contact, as to not look intimidated* Cheers!!!!
