bookshelf-tour-banner

Good afternoon awesome -book- nerds! Well I say afternoon because where I am the sun has finally cleared the winter weather and is shinning down on my desk, bathing me in it’s warmth. So naturally, I am in an exceptionally good mood after the dreary week I’d been having. And, after spending the best part of the day caught up in books and blazing through my tbr, because why the hell not, I thought better roll up my sleeves and give you the final part of my 2016 bookshelf tour. Now if you are just joining us let me catch you up to speed; click here for Part 1 or here for Part 2 or, if you’ve already checked these out let’s jump straight in. Let me take you on a tour through my beloved books.

Third Shelf Cube 1:

This cube finishes by blue/grey books and moves into those with grey and black covers. Now some of you might be thinking “what the hell?!? – why didn’t Lexie just keep all of her blue titles together before moving into the greys/blacks and whites?” and the answer is simple: originally they did. When I first played around with the layout I had the colors blend into the darker titles and yet it didn’t look anywhere near as good. Until I get more lighter grey titles it just went from dark grey into stark white and it really irked me. So, because I had darker blues and blue greys I decided to blend them into the blue. Anyway, moving on… Along with my books, this shelf houses some more of my ‘Harry Potter’ Pop Vinyls. On this cube I have my Luna Pop along with my Snape Pop.

Side Story #4: The ‘L’

I’ll make this one quick but this is yet another trinket I accumulated during my senior year. My adorable Textiles teacher gave us all the letters of our names on our last class (We also had an epic party including a screening of hilarious JibJabs she made of us – I laughed so hard I ended in stitches.). At the time, she forgot my full name was Alexandra because everyone had always called me “Lexie” or “Lex” or even “Lex-Luther” (LONG story hahaha) and gave me the ‘L’ instead. When she realized she apologized but I told her that I loved the ‘L’ because I’d always remember my senior year nicknames.

And now onto the rest of my books with shades of pink in their gorgeous covers. These books blend into my white covers (and eventually I’ll get some lighter pink ones to make the transition nicer). On this shelf I also have my Cinderella and Gus Gus in Slipper Pop Vinyls from the 2015 Live Action re-make.

And now we move onto the final and fourth shelf, more commonly known as the “work in progress” shelf. This shelf, as you’ll see goes from stark white to deep black which really irks me but I tried blending it from white to grey to black and I still didn’t like that either. Hence why I’ve dubbed it the “work in progress” shelf. There’s always one – that shelf that just no matter what you do doesn’t sit well, not the way you want it too anyhow. But as I buy more and more books and expand the shelf I’ll figure it out 😉

And the final cube. This one irks me more than the others combined due to my ‘Immortals” novels crammed up the top. I did this because otherwise without bookends they wouldn’t have stood up and would have looked weird on the next cube by themselves. So, for now they sit on top of my others.
