๐Ÿ“šThe Bookshelf Tag๐Ÿ“š

Hey guys, I found this tag ages ago and it’s been sitting in my saved folder ever since so I’ve finally gotten around to doing it! This one is The Bookshelf Tag.

1 – Describe your bookshelf and where you got it from. So my bookcase is an Ikea Billy Bookcase, I have had it for several years now and it was originally birch, but I brought new black furniture so I got some paint and it now matches the rest! Though I will be purchasing a new (bigger) one soon as I simply do not have room for any more books ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Live footage of me putting together my bookcase.

2 – How do you organise your books? I did a post on this ages ago, but it’s actually changed now and TBH it’s a bit of free for all as I’ve got no room but I’m hoping to organise it better once I get a new bookcase.

3 – What’s the longest book on your shelf? That would be IT by Stephen King, coming in at 1,138 pages!

4 – What’s the shortest book on your shelf? This one is Psycho by Robert Bloch coming in at 185 pages.

5 – Is there a book you received as a birthday gift? I had The Green Mile by Stephen King and Carrie by Stephen King for my birthday, which were several years ago and then this year I received like 10 new books *happy dance*

6 – Is there a book from a friend on your shelf? There is from my boyfriend, but from a friend I don’t think there is, they avoid buying me books because I already have so many haha.

7 – The most expensive book on your shelf? Probably my illustrated Harry Potter books.

8 – The last book you read on your shelf? This would be The Haunted by Niki Valentine. My review will be going up shortly.

9 – Do you have a complete series? I do indeed, I have several… The Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson, The Chronicles of Narnia by C S Lewis, Harry Potter by JKR and the Hannibal series by Thomas Harris.

10 – What’s the newest edition to your shelf? Erm, that is a very good question, it’s actually 10 books that were all added at once as they were received at the same time!

11 – The oldest book on your shelf? So I have a copy of The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins back from 1982. But the one that was written the longest time ago would be The Divine Comedy by Dante.

12 – What’s a book you’d hate to let out of your sight? (AKA no one is allowed to touch it). Definitely my illustrated Harry Potter books, they’re literally my pride and joy haha.

13 – Most beat up book? My Hannibal series, they used to belong to my Mom so they have been read a lot.

14 – Most pristine book? It’s a choice between my Mistborn series or The Complete Cthulhu Mythos Tales, they are literally perfect!

15 – A book that doesn’t belong to you? All of the books on my shelf are mine!

16 – A book that is your favourite colour? My favourite colour is actually pink and I don’t have any pink books on my shelf ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

17 – A book that’s been on your shelf the longest and you still haven’t read it? Definitely The Green Mile by Stephen King, it’s been on there for several years now.

18 – Of all the books on your shelf, which was the first you read? Out of the books on my shelf it would likely be The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.

I say this about every tag I take part in but this was literally so much fun, I loved going through my bookshelf and sharing the answers with you guys. If you want to take part please consider yourself tagged!
