As promised, here's the second part of my bookshelf post! If you remember the last one (you should, it was yesterday), this bookshelf will look awful familiar. (That's because I have two of the same bookshelf.)
You can see the side of the other one in this picture, haha. And, like the other one, this one looks like something a kindergarten class threw up.
My signed Cassandra Clare's are on this shelf, along with some of my other bought and won YA hardcovers. The two Thirst books are stacked there because they're so thick and they take up way too shelf space, so... plus I think they look pretty nice like that.
Second shelf picture one:
I have my L. J. Smith's stacked like this for the same reason as the Pike books. And no, I don't burn those candles there, I just put them there when I was cleaning and they looked kinda nice there so I left them. Cracked Up to Be and If I Stay are just there because when I was rearranging my shelves, I forgot those two were in my room and by the time I realized, I was done, so there they went.
Second shelf picture two:
Some of these I've bought, some of these I've won. This shelf is semi-arrange by size, which is why the two hardcovers are on the sides. It's totally not a sensible system at all, but it works for me, so run with it, okay?
For the most part, these are either books I've reviewed or books I've won but aren't at the top of my to-read priority list. And a special edition of Breaking Dawn that I bought because I wanted the poster. I'm a fangirl. Deal with it.
This shelf has no rhyme or reason, it's just random books I had that didn't fit anywhere so I tossed them onto this shelf. I think when I was filling this bookcase I had just bought some books from the library and they ended up here. Or something. Except for Parents From Space because that book rocks socks.
Now, let's move onto the books in my room. First we have this:
I bought this for six bucks at a yardsale and it's the only bookshelf of any kind in my actual bedroom. I keep a bunch of hardcovers in it because they fit quite well. Books that are signed include: Trash, Nothing But Trouble (I think), Wake, The French Mistress, Love, Lies, and Texas Dips, Death by Bikini, Mayhem on Mackinac Island by Johnathan Rand, and Bleeding Violet.
Normally, on top of The French Mistress are my Morganville books, but I'm reading them right now so they're next to my bed.
You see in the side of that picture how there's another one of those blue bins covered with a cloth? Those are MORE of my mom's romance novels (how do I end up dealing with them??).
On that bin is my review pile:
It's in roughly (roughly being key) chronological order right now, but chances are I won't read it in such. Need to get on that, actually...
And then next to it is just a stack of books:
The Day The Falls Stood Still and my House of Night books that I haven't touched but my mom likes. Sorry about the glare but the other picture I took was waaaay too dark to use.
And finally my work/reading/library pile:
The other thing this is called? A mess. But this is the romance books from the library I'm reading/need to return, a bunch of work books, and my Morganville books 'cause like I said I'm reading them. From the time I took this to now this has already changed, but you get the general gist of it. It's never the same for long, but it's basically the same idea all the time.
And I think that's about it, besides those books we all have that don't live anywhere and so are... everywhere. But I'm pretty tidy right now, so yay!
