Bookshelf Tag

I was tagged by Rin from Under Covers quite a while ago to do The Bookshelf Tag! Since this tag is pretty long and my answers to a few questions are simply "no, none," etc., I made my own abridged version and left a few questions out.

By the way, I'm an Amazon affiliate, which means I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

Without further ado, let's get started with the tag!

1. Describe your bookshelf and where you got it.

My mom made this majestic bookshelf about seven years ago. She's 1,000 times handier than I am and the pictures speak for themselves.

2. Do you have any special or different way of organizing your books?

Not really...I have them roughly in alphabetical order. A few of them are out of order simply because I thought they looked better in a different spot.

3. What is the biggest/thickest book on your shelf?

the hero of ages indoor sojourner

The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson by just a hair! It was almost a tie between this one and my hardcover copy of The Book Thief.

4. And the thinnest?

the great divorce indoor sojourner

The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis. It's a short read, but it's one of my favorites.

5. Is there a book from a friend on your shelf?

No, but there's a book missing from my shelf that a friend is borrowing! *accusatory glance to said friend*

6. Most expensive book?

I'm not 100 percent sure, but it's likely my hardcover edition of All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. One word: WORTH.

7. The last book you read on your shelf?

The Hero of Ages! After you finish with this post, check out my review...It's only slightly rambly. XD

8. Do you have more than one copy of a book?

No, but there are a few books that I have in hard copy and Kindle form, and even fewer that I have in hard copy, Kindle, and Audible. It has to be really good if I have it on all three. :)

9. Do you have the complete series of any book series?

There are quite a few more on my Kindle, but on my shelf, I have the UK edition of the Mistborn Boxed Set (because I'm a cover snob), The Mara Dyer Trilogy and the Grisha trilogy.

10. What's the most recently published book on your shelf?

Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman...This cover is beautiful. *drools*

10. Oldest book on your shelf?

If you're referring to the one I've owned for the longest, it would be The Trumpet of the Swan by E.B. White. I technically keep it in my nightstand, but I've had it for almost as long as I can remember.

11. A book you'd never let out of your sight (aka a book you'd never let anyone borrow)?

I'm generally pretty open to letting people borrow books, but I'd have to say my Splinter edition of Jane Eyre. Someone (the aforementioned friend) is actually borrowing it now, and I miss it so much... :(

12. Most beat up book?

None of my books are really "beat up", but I did spill water on my copy of The Winner's Curse...

The water damage of shame...

13. A book from your childhood?

Once again, The Trumpet of the Swan. It was my go-to read whenever I couldn't sleep.

14. A book that is your favorite color?

I don't really have a favorite color, but I love the shades of blue in the cover of All the Light We Cannot See!

15. Book that's been on your shelf for the longest that you STILL haven't read?

the girl on the train indoor sojourner

I made a perpetual TBR post a while back, and based on that, the hard copy I still haven't read is The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I don't see myself getting around to it any time soon, but I'll get to it...

Since this tag is pretty popular, I tag anyone else who hasn't been tagged and wants to show off their bookshelf!

Thanks for reading,
