Happy New Year!
We were talking about books a lot the other day on twitter, and so I decided to post a picture of my book shelf! I then asked if anyone would like to do the same with any recommendations that they may have, and I'd do a little post about it, so here they are!
This is my (main) book shelf! Some books are organised by author, some by feeling, and the books in the top left is my 'to-read' section! And here are a couple I got for Christmas that I can't wait to read:
And two wonderful Christmas books that I very much enjoyed reading as well. By Emma Chichester Clark and Raymond Briggs.
Now, onto some other people's book cases and favourites!
Lots of good stuff in there, and check out the tasty Graphic Novels stash on the bottom left!
Anne-Marie has tons of great Book Recommendations over on her website, so do go check it out :)
Next up is comics artist and enthusiast James Howard aka @TheMooks who posted a picture of a selection of his comics and graphic novels. James recommended 'The Accidental Salad' by Joe Decie, and 'Goliath' by Tom Gauld. I am a big fan of Tom Gauld, but I have yet to check out Mr Decie's work in detail! Thank you for your recommendations James :)
Next is the marvellously decorated Book case of Book Monkey Jo! aka @BookMonkeyGirl Thank you Jo! Love your tea cups and Roald Dahl collection :)
Next we have Author, Poet and Illustrator Colin West aka @mooseandmouse 's bookcase! And I must say what an impressive collection it is too! And so colour co-ordinated. I love seeing different people's bookshelves. This looks like a wonderfully well-loved collection. Thanks Colin!
This next one is straight from the Library Mouse herself! aka @librarymice :D This is Book Blogger and Children's Book enthusiast Melanie McGilloway's beautiful bookshelf! It looks so cosy and homely in there, can I come and stay and read all day please? ;)
And now, we have the truly epic book collection montage from Zoe Toft! aka @Playbythebook Zoe runs a really fantastic Kid's Book Blog that I very much recommend that you check out if you haven't already! playingbythebook.net
Aaaannnd Book Blogger and lovely lady to boot Loll Kirby! aka @StorySeekersUK How magical is this? I love it Loll, thank you! Check out Loll's book reviews and articles on her website here: Story Seekers
