Bookshelf Tour 2021!

It’s second-to-last-day-of-Blogmas! Today’s post is my updated book collection!

Overview of book room:

I’m pretty happy with how it is. The nonfiction has been moved to the hallway, and honestly most of it is my husband’s, so I’m not gonna bother going over it. For the two piles shown in the last picture, the left two are books that have been purged. I’ll be dropping them off at my sister in law’s free little library. The two piles on the right are books I’ve borrowed from friends and family.

Manga and graphic novels

You can see my 10 in 2021 books on top in that last pic there. In addition to the manga shown, I have quite a few lent out. Not shown are: Ten Count 6, Rave Master 1-10, Demon Diary 1-7, Delicious in Dungeon 1-4, Inuyasha 1-5, The Way of the House Husband 1-2, Pandora Hearts 1, Trigun 1-2, Trigun Maximum 1-4, and Tokyo Ghoul 1-4 (though Tokyo Ghoul isn’t mine – it’s my husband’s).

Fiction:

Right now, my shelves are ordered by read and unread, followed by author (more or less). The last pic is what I’m currently reading and a couple books on the back-burner. Like the manga, I also have a lot of fiction lent out. Not shown: Uprooted, The Bear and the Nightingale, House of Leaves, Assassin’s Apprentice, Assassin’s Quest, Senlin Ascends, The Traitor Baru Cormorant, The Poppy War, Six of Crows, Crooked Kingdom, King of Scars, Throne of Glass, and Isle of Blood.

And that’s it! Those are my books as of today. Tomorrow is Blogmas day Last!

 

Bookshelf Tour – 2019!

10 in 2019

I’m aware it’s 2020. :”D I had meant to post this in December during the main chunk of Blogmas, but I didn’t get the photos together or my bookshelves organized in time, so it’s a bit delayed. But I’ll be posting one next December too and that will be the 2020 one. So bear with me here. If you’re interested, here’s my 2018 and 2017 tours. Any that I list as missing are currently lent out.

Also I have to double-stack now. IT’S TEARING ME APART. D’:

Bookshelf Tour 2018

10 in 2019

Hello! Today is an updated bookshelf tour! The last time I did one was at the end of 2017. Since then, I’ve added new ones, rearranged a bit, and purged some old ones.

I have quite a few off the shelves right now because they’re either lent out or lying around my place, so any I notice are missing will be noted. None of the books mentioned in the book haul that I posted yesterday are on the shelves yet, so none of them will be shown either. 😛

Also, I almost almost did a video. I shot the footage and everything, and Katy offered to edit it for me. But… I got camera shy at the last minute. I’m not even in it, just my voice. But still. Pictures, haha.


Nonfiction and Foreign Language

Missing: The Good Women of China

Manga and graphic novels

Missing: Mushishi vols 2-4, Fruits Basket vols 1-4, Wotakoi vol 3, Descender vol 2, Monstress vols 1-2, Chew vols 1-2, The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil

Fantasy and Science Fiction

Missing: His Majesty’s Dragon, Throne of Glass, Truthwitch, Assassin’s Apprentice, The Name of the Wind, The Knife of Never Letting Go

Horror, Contemporary, Historical Fiction, Thrillers, Classics, Magical Realism, and Literary Fiction

Missing: House of Leaves, Water for Elephants, Isle of Blood


And that’s it! I think with the new books going on, I’m going to need another case. I have two small cases right now among the collection – I might see if I can replace one or both of them with a larger case.

According to Goodreads (which… I keep mostly up to date), not including the newest books from the haul because I haven’t added them in yet, I own 707 books, 270 of which are unread. I’ll go into more detail come January, but I hope to reduce that to 250 or so by the end of 2019. Wish me luck. Ideally I’ll have unread books until I die – it’s no fun otherwise.

Happy reading!

 

Christmas Decorations Tour!

Blogmas 2018

Hi! I’m two white Russians deep – currently Friday night, and I kinda sorta decorated my house for Christmas this year! Look look!

I also got a new phone recently – a Google Pixel 3. All of the above shots were taken in a dark room. Except for the string lights in the photo, the room was dark. I’m obsessed with how well night shots come out, man. I absolutely love it.

Until tomorrow! Current-me wishes tomorrow-morning-when-this-is-posted-me a happy sleep, because I’ll probably be hung over (white russians are so good).

Happy reading!

Bookshelf Tour 2017

Blogmas2017Benner

Hello! I’ve decided to do one of those bookshelf tour thingies. As I have a blog and not a youtube, this will be done through photos. 😛 I’m fairly sure that each photo is clear enough that you should be able to see titles if you want. Any photo I place here you should be able to right-click and select ‘view image’ to see the full size if you need a larger view of the thing.

As I’ve mentioned (a billion times now) I moved recently. We moved from a two bedroom apartment into a three bedroom townhouse. And since it’s just my husband and I right now, those two extra bedrooms we’re using as not-bedrooms. One is our office (which is still a bunch of boxes).

The other is my uh… my library. :”D I have my own room dedicated to books! The photos you’ll see are how it looks right now. I want to get a big, comfy arm chair in there though. Right now, there’s an antique rocking chair and while it’s actually comfy to sit in, you can’t really curl up in it. So I’m on the hunt for a recliner.

Anyways, here are my books. I’ve been collecting them for two decades. Anything listed as ‘not shown’ I’m either currently reading, is lent out, or is still in a box somewhere.
