The Bookshelf Book Tag

Describe your bookshelf and where you got it from- If you’re a reader of my blog you know I am a minimalist with my books now! Therefore, I have one bookshelf which is white wooden with built in lights. I was lucky that the previous owners of my apartment left them behind, so they were free!

I couldn’t find any photos of my shelves so I included an aesthetically pleasing library one instead…

How do you organise your books?- I split them by ‘unread’ and top 20 favourites! Once I read a book, I donate it if it doesn’t make my top 20! So it’s constantly rotating!

What’s the longest and shortest books on your shelf?- Shortest book is my vintage Paddington bear. The longest book is ‘The Shadow of the Wind’.

Is there a book you received as a birthday gift? I don’t think any were birthday gifts!

Is there a book from a friend on your shelf?- Again, I don’t have any! But I have a friend swaps books every few weeks, so there normally is!

The most expensive book on your shelf?- All my books are thrifted/ second hand so none of them were expensive!

The last book you read on your shelf?– ‘Invitation to a Bonfire’

Do you have a complete series?– Unfortunately not!

What’s the newest addition to your shelf?– ‘Paper Butterflies’

The oldest book on your shelf?– Flowers in the brain!

What’s a book you’d hate to let out of your sight?– Again, Flowers in the brain!

Most beat up book?– Cather in the Rye, it’s a beautiful edition!

Most pristine book?– Joyland by Steven King

A book that doesn’t belong to you?– Magpie Murders

A book that is your favourite color?– Catcher in the Rye! Pastel yellow.

A book that’s been on your shelf the longest and you still haven’t read it?– ‘Go set a Watchmen’. The world had to wait 40 years before reading. As I only recently read ‘To kill a Mockingbird’ I want to leave a little time before I pick it up. (Not 40 years haha)

Of all the books on your shelf, which was the first you read?– I honestly have no idea

Any signed books?– Not anymore! I had a John Green signed ‘The fault in our stars’ but I gave it away…

This tag was a really fun distraction during this pandemic, therefore I tag anyone reading!

  1. […] Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe in these strange times. I don’t know about you, but I use books as a tool for escapism, so it’s not surprising that I found myself reading 19 books this month! Anyway, today I will be doing the Bookshelf Book Tag, which I found here: […]
