Bookshelf Tour + Stories & Shock

Hi guys! I have a lot to say in this post, so I’m not going to ramble too much. XD

So first of all, I’m a little bit jealous right now. Where I live we’re currently getting a decent amount of snow. I don’t mind snow most of the time, but we already have a lot and this snow is wet and slushy. I don’t like it that way.

My mom is on a business trip in Florida, though, so she isn’t here for the snowfall. Instead she has this.

Like I said, I don’t mind snow, but I definitely would prefer being with her down there. It’s beautiful there (though snow is in its own way) and perfect for pictures. (Yes that’s where my mind goes). It would also be a lovely place to relax and read all day. 😀


I also just spent nearly half an hour trying to chase my smaller cat Ember out of a bedroom she’s not supposed to be in. It was difficult — she spent nearly the entire time under the bed, so I was lying on the floor with a laser light toy trying to lure her out. 😛

that’s Ember in case you forgot ⇑


So now to the main topic of this post — I reorganized my bookshelf last night! For the third or fourth time since I got it for Christmas. No, of course I don’t have a problem. But anyway, I thought it would be cool to show you guys and explain how I organized it. 😀

This is my bookshelf.

On the very top of it I have my interactive wand from my choosing ceremony at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando and a big stuffed dog I got for Christmas that I didn’t know where else to put. 😛

The top shelf is my paperbacks and probably most uneven height-wise. It’s color-coded. On it I have, from left to right:

  • The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
  • Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
  • Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
  • Control by Lydia Kang
  • The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton (platinum edition)
  • Divergent by Veronica Roth
  • The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
  • The Death Cure by James Dashner
  • Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
  • Anomaly by Tonya Kuper
  • Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
  • The Maze Runner by James Dashner
  • City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
  • Dewey by Vicki Myron
  • The Kill Order by James Dashner
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

  • Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
  • The Selection by Kiera Cass (not pictured — I bought it after this was taken)
  • Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
  • Keeping The Moon by Sarah Dessen

The second shelf is my hardcovers and probably my favorite because they’re almost all the same height and very aesthetically pleasing. 😀 On it I have, from left to right:

  • Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

The third shelf is my mythology books. It has some of my favorite books on it. On it I have, from left to right:

  • Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes by Rick Riordan
  • The Demigod Files by Rick Riordan
  • Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
  • Percy Jackson and The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

  • The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
  • Magnus Chase and The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
  • The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan

  • The Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan
  • Bing Bong Funko
  • The Goddess Test by Aimée Carter
  • Goddess Interrupted by Aimée Carter
  • The Goddess Legacy by Aimée Carter
  • The Goddess Inheritance by Aimée Carter

The fourth shelf is my library books. They’re arranged from tallest to shortest. On it I have, from left to right:

  • Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor (not pictured — I’m reading it)
  • The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson
  • The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
  • The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
  • The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
  • Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout
  • The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

The bottom shelf has nothing on it because Ember likes to hang out down there and I don’t want her to damage any of my books. 😉

My shelf and collection is small compared to other bookworms’ but I love it anyway. 😀


There’s one other thing I want to mention.

01k 2-5-16

I hit 100 blog followers! Like I’ve said before, I don’t care about my follower or view count, but seeing things like this just amazes me.

Thank you!

I started this blog on September 13th last year with the intention for it to just be a fun side project and way to possibly meet a couple of people that loved books like I did. After about two months I got my first follower (actually Ashleigh) and from there it’s spiraled. I won’t say too much more because I don’t want to be too cheesy, but I’m pleasantly shocked (new phrase, haha) and I’m eager to keep this up. 😀


So, that ended up being longer than I thought it would be. Bonus points to you if you read it all. 😛 (name that book reference, anyone?)

  1. What a lovely bookshelf! You have some room to buy some more books before you have to expand. And haha, I know what you mean completely. I love reorganizing my bookshelves. It makes me feel so relaxed and productive (like I’m actually cleaning). However, since I’ve organized it as a rainbow back in November 2015 I haven’t changed the set up yet. And congratulations on the milestone! 😀
