I thought I’d share a few photos I’ve taken of my bookshelves recently. I gave away about 140 books, so my shelves look much tidier. I love my bookshelves – they’re my favourite thing in my room! Each shelf can hold three rows of books, although this does mean you can never see what’s behind!
I keep children’s fiction on the top row – there’s loads of children’s classics here. YA takes up the next two rows. I love my bookish candles from Frostbeard Studio.
On the third row is more YA (unsurprisingly – it’s what I read the most!). The shelf below it is the tallest, so it holds a mixture of books, from Jodi Picoult paperbacks to larger YA hardbacks and smaller children’s hardbacks. The bottom row is where I keep my adult fiction (and it’ll start to creep up to the shelf above it!). I also love my bookish mugs!
And then on the other side of the room, I have another built-in bookcase. Here I keep a mixture of the largest hardbacks, smaller hardbacks, non-fiction and proof copies. They’re not in the photo, but I also keep my Agatha Christie novels and Penguin’s Great Food series on the shelf above the hardbacks, because they’re teeny-tiny, alongside my CDs (mostly Taylor Swift) and DVDs.
And here’s the very latest photo – I’ve now added flowers and Sadness.
Sadness is so cute!
You can see a very old tour of my bookshelves here. How do you organise your bookshelves?
