The Bookshelf Tag


1. Describe your bookshelf and where you got it from.

  • It’s technically an armoire that my mom bought for me from Big Lots. We didn’t put the doors on it so I could use it as a shelf.

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

  • The first, second, and third shelves are grouped by author, series, genre, and age group. My TBR shelf is categorized by which book I plan on reading next, and the ones in the box are organized by size.

  • The first five Carmen Browne books (there’s only four in the picture because I let someone borrow the fifth book and I never got it back) from my oldest sister, Jennifer; age eleven.

  • A Walk to Remember from my brother for getting good grades.
  • Two copies of The Fault in Our Stars from my mom and my sister, Ashley, for Christmas, age fifteen (I gave one of them to my best friend).

  • The Paper Gods series from Jennifer for my eighteenth birthday.
