Welcome to my humble abode! My bookshelves can be found on the bottom half of my loft bed, along with my desk and a bulletin board. (Nothing like sleeping on a pile of books, eh?)
Before we get started, if you didn’t already know, I am very much a mood reader. When I’m in the mood for a specific type of book, that is what I have to read. This part of my reading personality is reflected heavily into how I keep my books; the stories and covers that “feel” the same to me go together. That’s why I thought it would be so much fun to show you guys my shelves. I hope you enjoy and be sure to tell me how you store your books in the comments. :)
The middle shelf holds 95% of my contemporary books.
Hardback Contemporary: To save space, I have stacked all the hardback contemporary books I own. On the bottom are my “summer” themed books, and the covers fade up according to color.
Contemporary Fantasy: Here are a couple of books that are technically fantasy books, but felt like contemporary books when I read them.
LGBTQ+: Next are a few books with LGBTQ+ romance as the main plotline.
Paperback Contemporary: All of my paperback contemporaries are kept here. They are grouped by author and then sorted based on color.
White Cover Contemporary: On the end, I have all the white, hardback contemporaries stacked together, because #aesthetic.
On the bottom shelf,
Space & Adventure: Here I keep the more “hardcore” sci-fi books, which are mainly the ones set in space (and then the first two books of Red Queen are just hanging out. This section determined itself mostly because they’re the only tall hardbacks I have. The rest are all short.).
Whew, those are all my books! I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek into my room. Be sure to let me know how you store and arrange your books, and if you would like to see more of these types of posts in the future.
Your self-appointed librarian,
I love walking into a bookstore. It's like all my friends are sitting on shelves, waving their pages at me.
