What’s up world!
Today, I’m going to be giving you a snippet of what my bookshelves look like!
First up, this is the overview of my bookshelves ↓
I used to organize my bookshelves by genres, but I was kind of stressed out by how rapidly the shelf on which I put my romance books had been filling up. With three more women’s novels (most likely even more) coming my way, I didn’t know what to do.
Then, watching a BookTuber’s Bookshelf Tour video gave me the inspiration for organizing my bookshelves; I decided to squeeze all the books that I read into the bookshelf on the left and the unread books into the one on the right. Yup, it goes to show how many books I still have that I need to read…
I did my best to sort my unread books by genres, but to be honest with you, I wasn’t particularly happy with how it turned out right after reorganizing my bookshelves.
In particular, I wasn’t at all happy with the color scheme of my books; it kind of looked a bit disorganized despite the fact they WERE in fact sorted by genres to some extent 😦
That said, I’m glad that I rearranged my bookshelves because it actually created some more space in my shelves!
All right, enough about the overview, let’s take a closer look at the individual shelves and we’re going to start from the top.
I’m not going much into these books here but I’ll give you the titles instead.

Now, let’s move down to my Classic section:
The books on this shelf that ARE NOT from those hauls are:
- Most Secret by Nevil Shute
- The Public Image by Muriel Spark
The funny thing is that I myself think I did a pretty good job in fitting everything in this shelf, but two of my Bookish friends are actually not at all happy with this layout; they favor how my Classic section used to look like (You can see my Instagram photo here) – they are saddened by my pretty Penguin English Library editions being pushed back and not showing lol
All right, we’re almost there! On the bottom shelf we have:
- The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson
- Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
- Windwitch by Susan Dennard
- Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
- Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth
- Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
That is it!!
Phew, I didn’t even know how many books I’ve actually got myself. I probably should have stuck with buying paperbacks rather than hardcovers; my tiny bookshelves have been filling up at a much faster pace than I had anticipated!
I think I’ll need to learn to read on my Kindle too…
Anyways, thanks for sticking around, hope you all have a great reading week! 😄
