Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
Believe it or not, on this exact day four years ago I posted my first (and only… until now!) Book Shelf tour (click here to see it)! To this day it is still one of my most viewed blog posts ever! I’ve been getting a lot of requests on Instagram to do an updated one, so when I saw that it had been four years since my last one, I thought it would be so fun to post to see how different my bookshelves look! I am still using the same bookshelves, but I am using a lot more of them now (in my basement my family installed a huge bookshelf, so I use about 1/3 of the shelves, and my Dad uses just over 2/3). I have acquired A LOT more books since the last time you saw these shelves, thanks to all of the amazing ARCs I have received from different publishing houses, my discovery of BOOK HEAVEN (aka BookOutlet.com!), and the fantastic releases that authors have been publishing over the past several years. As you can see, my shelves consist of a lot more YA and Adult books, rather than in my last bookshelf tour where I had an even mix of YA and Middle Grade. I hope that you all enjoy this tour!
DISCLAIMER: I have received quite a few ARCs (which will be indicated with an astric), as well as a lot of books that have been purchased for me from friends or family from gifts. However, most of the books (including all of the books I have purchased from Book Outlet) were boughten by myself. I am not making this post to brag in any way, shape, or form. This post is very requested, and I am publishing it purely because people have asked to see my book collection. 🙂
Key: Bold – Sent for free. Underlined – Reviewed on blog (I used to review most ARCs solely on Goodreads, since I didn’t have much time to write full reviews in the past) (click on the title, it will take you right to the review).
This is my bookshelf! As I previously said, it is a huge bookshelf unit that is installed in the basement of my house, and this is literally only one third of it! My bookshelf isn’t really organized in any way. Some shelves hold books that have the same genre, while some just have random hardbacks. The far left column only holds ARCs and books that i have received for free from publishers (as does a few shelves next to it).
These are all hardcover books that I have received from publishers for free. All of them were sent to me from Penguin Random House Canada, except for “Hello, Friends!” by Jerry Howarth, which I received from ECW Press TODAY!
