Bookshelf Tour 2018

As crazy as it sounds, I’ve had some of the same books in my room since I was eight.

bookshelf1

This is my bookshelf. It consists of who-know-how-many books and three floating shelves that threaten to topple off the wall. It floats above my desk and I’m sometimes low key terrified that a stack of books will fall on my head.

I tend to keep it fairly clean, except it’s like torture when you have to dust behind the shelves. So that why we don’t.

On the first shelf, we have this wonderful stack of books. I wasn’t gonna do rainbow order, but I put my standalone books in colour order.

We have Losing Brave by Bailee Madison and Stefne Miller, Olivia Twist by Lorie Landon, The Lost Girl of Astor Street by Stephanie Morrill, and Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix. I got the first three at a Christian bookstore and the last one at a 2nd hand bookstore.

Beside the stack we have:

  • The Evaporation of Sofi Snow and Reclaiming Shilo Snow, both by Mary Weber
  • Unblemished, Unraveling, and Unbreakable, all by Sara Ella
  • Thunder, Lighting, Storm, all by Bonnie S. Calhoun

We then see the Lunar Chronicles: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Winter, Stars Above, and Fairest, all by Marissa Meyer. And my new favourite series: Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant by Veronica Roth.

And this is my other stand-alone stack. In it, we have, The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson, Toward a Secret Sky by Heather Maclean, A Daring Sacrifice, and Kiki Strike; The Empress’s Tomb by Kirsten Miller.

On the next shelf, we have my very tattered collection of old hardcover Nancy Drews and my newer stack of Nancy Drew Diaries all by Carolyn Keene.

Fun Fact: I started reading the hardcover Nancy Drew’s in Grade 1. I even finished one in two days.

This is my old classic shelf. We have all seven books from The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. Above it is the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. I still need to finish the Lord of the Rings.

On the very top shelf, I have my American Girl books and some Hardy Boys. As I’m writing this, I noticed that someone took some of the Hardy Boys. I’m coming after you book thief!

babysittersclub

Beside the stolen books I have an extensive Baby-Sitter’s Club collection as well as the comics. I too noticed that one of my comics has been misplaced. Probably by the book thief.

And just when you thought I was done, I’m not. This bookshelf thingy doubles as my bedside table. Where else am I supposed to stack the books to read at night?

In one cubical I have the books:

  • Dauntless, Chivalrous, and Courageous, all by Dina L. Sleiman
  • Invasion Alienation, and Domination, a trilogy by Jon S. Lewis
  • The Homelanders, which is actually four books in one, by Andrew Klavan
  • Mindwar, Hostage Run, and Game Over, also by Andrew Klavan

librarybooks

In the cubical beside, I have all my library books. The Library is practically my 2nd home and it really helps that we live awfully close to it. I’m currently reading, I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore.

    1. Thank you so much! And you are welcome for the shout-out.
      I don’t even want to tell you how many times I have renewed my books. I have a guidebook to Vancouver out, but since I’m still writing my book, I need to keep renewing it.

      1. 😂 When I was doing a research paper for school I had to keep the library book for 2+ months… loooot’s of renewing. I was inspired by you to make a cube shelf dedicated to library books. I need to start getting library books more since I’m broke and need to save up for Christmas gifts. 😂

      2. I’m going shopping tomorrow and you’ll never believe where I’m going! A second-hand bookstore to pick up the Percy-Jackson series!
        I can just imangine the librarians at your library. “That Mya, always renewing that book. Not only does she have 3 books overdue, but she keeps one of our childern at her house for more than 2 months.” They then silently wipe tears from their eyes.

      3. Do you have any wall space for wall shelves? That’s what I’m getting for my brother for Christmas because he doesn’t have enough room for another shelf in his room.

      4. I want to redo my room so I might get a bigger bookshelf then. But right now I have no more room. Unless I put shelves above my bed or something. Would you want me to do a room tour?
