my shelves update!

I've been forced to have a bit of a reworking of my library now that my gorgeous collection books is rapidly expanding. this involving a semi aggressive takeover of shelves in the library (boy books being banished to the spare room) a rejiggle and compromise on another shelf and a whole new revamp for my TRB shelf.

My side of the library (yes side as I no longer just have 1 bookcase) now looks like this






















 The two shelves together have all of my young adult books on them - I have plenty of space to grow which means for the time being I can have my favourite covers facing forward so I can gaze at them. I must admit I get a bit OCD about these shelves and have rearranged them lots recently. The single shelf next to it has my children's books along with all the oversized books I have and some photoalbums.

In the library (and this was the compromise) we how have a collection adult books shelf, I have read or will read all of the books on this shelf (even though they aren't all technically mine). I really need to read a few adult books again!


 Finally my TRB shelf had to have a revamp. My dad came home with some ginormous bookshelves from a job he had been doing (he's a builder not a random criminal). He rescued them as the person he was working for was going to thrown them out. I nabbed one for my TRB shelf next to my bed ad it is a handy place for me to keep loads of things and I could keep all those things close with the amount of books I was keeping on there too. The bottom shelf (I say bottom there are two more below what you can see and one above) has my review titles on the left and the books I really want to read now on the right). The shelves above are all the other books I need to get through at some point (yes I often lay in bed gazing at them longingly) - I have actually had a bit of a slim down of these shelves recently not that you'd believe it by looking at them.



 Any books on here I ought to move down to my "must read now" pile???

I thought Plain Kate was amazing. I'm not sorry I moved it to the top of my TBR pile.

Great collection!

And you should move Wolf Brother to the top of your tbr list as the whole series was simply epic.

Awesome bookshelves... You have to move Torment to the top of your list... or bookshelf.... or whatever you want to call it

You have so many fantastic bookshelves! And as for what you should read next, I'm not sure...I'm too busy trying to pick my jaw up off the floor.

said room isn't all that big really - it had to be a library because I couldn't fit any of my other funiture in there - I can touch both sides at once with out stretched hands and it is about 2 metres (if that) long. When we bought the place it was advertised as dinner room - we could have just got a table round but there wouldn't have been space for chairs!

Your books look so pretty on your shelves :) I wish I had room to have some of mine with the covers facing out but I have so little room that they're all piled on top of each other!

You have to read 'Ash' by Malinda Lo soon. I really enjoyed it!
