Hello everyone, and welcome back to The Bookworm’s Fantasy! I hope you’re all doing well. Today’s post is going to be A Tour Of My Bookshelves! I haven’t done one of these posts for almost 2 years, but I thought I’d show you around my bookshelves now as I’ve recently moved house. So, keep reading…
My “Favourites” Bookshelves.
My “favourites” bookshelves are located about my dressing table in my bedroom. I like to showcase these books and have these stand out more, as they were all 5-star reads and are all special to me in their own way! These shelves are organised by colour rather than alphabetically. I also keep a couple of my favourite ornaments and notebooks here, as well as my adorable Dachshund bookends!
This is the left/top shelf of my “favourites” bookshelves. Here I keep my favourite books with darker coloured spines. As you can see, it’s pretty full now! To the right are some of my nice notebooks that I like to display, and also some ornaments: a Colosseum statue that I picked up when I went to Rome, a paperweight, and my mini-grand piano ornament.
This is the right/bottom shelf of my “favourites” bookshelves. Here I keep my favourite books with lighter coloured spines. To the left are some more ornaments: my lovely Dachshund bookends, my Disney Pocahontas statue, and my Golden Retriever ornament.
My TBR Bookcase.
This is my main bookcase, located in my bedroom. On the top, I keep my framed graduation photo, to remind me of how far I’ve come and what I’ve achieved so far! This bookcase contains books that I haven’t read yet – so essentially, it’s my TBR! These books are organised by the order I would like to read them in.
This is the top shelf of the bookcase. On the left are my proof copies from publishers (up to The Holiday by T.M. Logan), and after that the TBR begins!
The bottom shelf in my bookcase is where I keep my Classics and books that I read at university. I have some really nice Penguin Clothbound Classics here, as well as some books that were passed down from my family!
My Other Bookcase.
In the spare bedroom in my house, I’ve been allowed three bookshelves to display the books that I’ve read! These books are ordered alphabetically by author’s surname. If you look closely, you’ll see that all of these books are doubled-up – so essentially I’ve managed to squeeze 6 shelves worth of books onto 3 shelves! I need a whole other bookcase really, but that’s just not possible at the moment, so this will have to do. Bookshelves don’t have to be perfect!
What do your bookshelves look like? How do you organise your books? Let me know in the comments!
Happy reading 🙂
