Bookshelf Packing Tour/Personal Post

Hi!

This is going to be a bookish personal post. I've never written a personal post before but this is big news so I thought you lovely people should know ;) 

Okay, We're living in this house, which has a granny flat (we're renting). Now my mom's friend with her five kids is moving into the house we currently living in and we're going to move into the granny flat. We're doing this because we're going to be BUILDING A HOUSE! And so is my mom's friend! But since she has five kids she's taking over the main house. Does that make sense? :/ I hope so! 

Anyway, the granny flat is really tiny and I have a LOT of books, so there is no space for my lovelies :( So we've been packing and sorting and packing some more and yesterday was just plain tiring, I didn't even get to read *wails*!

But here are some before and after pictures, tell me what you think in the comments section ;)

BEFORE: My bookshelf...its actually my wardrobe, all my clothes were piled at the top shelf but then my mom forced *cough cough* kindly advised me to hang up all my clothes and fold them neatly in the wardrobe next to the bookshelf. As you can see, there are 3 shelves filled with books, and there are four rows on each shelf. So 12 rows of books. The top shelf is my contemporary/chick-lit shelf, the second shelf is my adventure/dystopian/mystery shelf and the third shelf is my youngish/read/2012 TBR Pile Challenge books. And right on the bottom shelf is my review copies and my stationery.

After: Here are my books packed and my bookshelf cleared except for the books I'm keeping out that are not going to storage.
More books donating to charity

The pile on the far right are my physical review copies and then the other two piles are random Young Adult books that I've been meaning to read but haven't been able to.

Second library pile
My two library books I've read: Sweethearts by Sara Zarr and Magic Under Glass by Jaclyn Dolamore 

So everyone, I hope you've enjoyed this post, and if you like it, I'll do more personal and bookish posts. Have a great Friday! :D

  1. Wow! I am officially jealous of your stack of YA! That shelf of three stacks! Wow! *makes note to stop buying classics and start buying more YA* I hope that these books will tide you over whilst they are building and if they don't that you'll be able to buy as many as you need! Lovely collection that you have! Definitely do more book shelf posts once you are settled into your new home.
