A (New) Little Tour of My Bookshelves

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?

  5. LOVE the new bookshelves! Do you mind me asking where you got your reading is sexy mug? It’s so awesome!

  6. I love how colourful your shelves are! And go you for getting rid of books, so many books at that! I’ve taken to weeding through my books regularly now because while I might want to own all the books, it certainly isn’t feasible!

    • Thank you! Yes it was just getting me down, having all these books I’ll never read or re-read and feeling guilty every time I acquire a new book – I feel much better now!

  7. Love your bookshelves!! 😀

  9. […] been nearly a year since I last posted a little tour of my bookshelves, but I’ve been in a new place for five months now and thought I’d take a few photos of […]

  10. I like this feature as well. My bookshelves are organized by feeling. The touch technique with a lot of trinkets in front.
