Shelfie Hop


I’m naturally a curious person, so when I saw this Shelfie Hop, I thought it was the coolest thing. A bunch of people posting what their shelves look like? Cool! Now, I just moved into a new house a few weeks ago, so my shelves are still kind of messy, but honestly, they’re never going to get much neater. Apologies for bad lighting in advance.

ThisIMG_7243 first shelf has my favorite hardcovers on it. I’ve pretty much run out of room all across the board, but most of my favorite series have made it on here. Then on the left are two make-shift shelves (which are just crates): the top has some old favorite paperbacks, and the bottom is full of ARCS or free books I got at Comic-Con and still need to read.

You can also see one of my cooler masks in its little box. Normally it’s on the shelf too, but I pulled it forward so you could see the books better.

The red panda I got in Japantown when I visited LA earlier this year, and the flowered fabric is a wrap I got in Hawaii a couple years ago.

Some of the cool things to point out:

  • The silver mask is the one that helped inspire WHAT IS HIDDEN
  • The crochet fire ferret was given to me by a reader
  • That bottle of sand is from when I went to a family reunion in Florida

The white mask in the box is my favorite, and you’ll probably be seeing more of it as I promote my next book. These shelves also hold a bunch of photo books and manga.

The Inuyasha plush dolls I received from my host brother (who I think was about 7 at the time) waay back when I was a student ambassador in Japan. That pink mask is from Tokyo DisneySea from when I lived in Japan and worked as an English teacher.

And not pictured are the three other boxes under my bed or in my closet with non-fiction, textbooks and other assorted books that I just didn’t have room for. Plus another crate (or two) in the basement storage. I keep meaning to go through them but haven’t made it to that point yet. I’m a bit of a packrat, though I’m MUCH better now than when I was younger. If you can believe that.

If there’s anything pictures you’d like to know more about, feel free to ask in the comments! Or you can check out some of these other shelfies from other blogs under the cut!

    I’m with you- I love taking a look into people’s lives and bookshelves. it’s been so much fun seeing shelves and collections. I especially love all the other things people house on their shelves as well as books. Your masks! MY GOODNESS. So beautiful! That white one is my favorite too. So incredibly beautiful. Thank you so much for joining us today!

    Great collection! I think we all are curious people when it comes to other blogger’s book shelves. XD I won’t lie though, I think your masks are the coolest things in the pictures. One day I’ll be able to get some for my own collection.
