|to be read bookshelf|
First up is a small pic of my tar bookshelf. The whole three shelves here are unread. I have books that I bought using a voucher from Christmas 2010 on this shelf and it mocks me every time I pass it! I try and cycle my books and take some of these downstairs for my Billy every now and then but I'm not great at doing that!
Amongst this collection is Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver and The Scorpio Races, books three and five of the Gallagher Girls series, Book one and two from the Scott Westerfeld Leviathan series and the entire Michelle Zink Prophecy of the Sisters series... I really need to start some of them!
On top of the shelf I have my Nightmare Before Christmas 'Sally' doll and my 'Bride' doll from Corpse Bride... I love Tim Burton... and Peter the pterodactyl and a pic of me and the other half!
Over in the other corner of the room I have a further two shelves... As you can see one is nicely empty except it seems to have become over run with dinosaurs! The other is jam-packed. This is the only shelf that I share with my other half, but don't be fooled, most of the books are still mine! This is my corner of the bedroom, my other half is a bit of a neat freak (love you if you read this!) and does't like clutter so this is my organised clutter space! The guitar is his though... mines in its bag somewhere else in the house!
|My book corner|
The next one tucked away in the corner is one of the strangest collections of books you will probably ever see. Most of these are adult books, there's a few YA books mixed in, especially on the top which has my Malorie Blackman Naughts and Crosses series, the first couple of books from the Stravaganza series and Inkheart held between bookends which I think I got when I was born... As well as being adult and YA books there is a crazy mix of genres, and you will find textbooks, novels, reference books and comics/graphic novels on this shelf.
|Classics, feminism and Language reference books|
On the shelf below at the back you find a lot of my classics and other books that I read for uni. I did English Language and Literature at uni and you can really tell when you see this shelf. I have a beloved collection of Jane Austen's novels which my sister bought me for my 18th birthday a variety of Shakespeare plays, two copies of Wuthering Heights even though I can't stand it! You can also find my English Language reference books here including Mother Tongue by Bill Bryson which I thoroughly recommend, David Crystal and a collection called The Dictionary Series which has a book on Adverbs, Proverbs, Word Origins and 'English through the ages'... need any more proof I'm a geek?

The final shelf at the bottom is yet another mis-match of books like the bottom shelf of my Billy downstairs. Most of these books belong to my other half, including some computer related books, but my dictionaries (yes plural) are there, along with my Creative Writing Coursebook (I wanted to do creative writing at UEA for a while), a couple of books about Dreams and my complete Oscar Wilde book. some of the skinnier books are comics and graphic novels. I have the first in The Sandman series by Neil Gaiman on this shelf, along with my OH's copy of Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and Squee by Jhonen Vasquez (Invader Zim creator) plus more. Some of my graphic novels are downstairs and I keep meaning to put them all together up here, that may be a job for the weekend!

I hope you have enjoyed my tour around my bookshelves, I've enjoyed showing them off!
