While wandering around the internet, I came upon an interesting post over on Nova Ren Suma’s blog (which is consistently interesting, fyi!). Following a prompt by author/bloggess Hilary Smith, Nova posted a photo of her (enviable) unedited bookshelf. (Well, it’s technically a photo of what happened when she ran out of shelf-space, but we book people can totally relate, right?) Inspired by Nova and Hilary, I thought I’d post photos of my own shelves. Here we go!
(Quick note: I cheated! Since my bedroom is super narrow, I couldn’t capture my entire bookshelf in one photo, so you’ll have to piece them together in your mind, Lego-style.)
(Another quick note: You can click on each pic to get a closer look!)
- I used to call one of these shelves my “Happy Shelf” (because it sat right above my computer and would sprinkle inspiration on me when I wrote). But then the books that made me happy couldn’t be contained to just one shelf, so the label has been retired. 😉
- Another shelf has my absolute favorite inscriptions by the authors who signed their books. (Can you guess which?)
- THESE ARE SO NOT ALL OF MY BOOKS.
Okay . . . judge me. 😉

It reminds me a lot of my bookshelf only I have one less shelf. I even have the same paperback Sarah Dessen books & they’re in the same exact order on my shelf. haha I’m going to go with great minds think alike.
It’s tooootally great minds thinking alike! Not an OCD thing at all. Not. At. All . . . 😉 And yay for almost-twin bookshelves!
Thanks for stopping by! 😀
