I am so excited to see all the shelves and book collections today! I had these lofty plans to reorganize and dust my shelves but that so did not happen. I’m posting picture though my books are in no particular order. I’m hoping seeing everyone else’s shelves will help motivate me to FINALLY organize.

Thank you Crystal for doing so much for the hop. You are the best.

Now to the tour…


These shelves are in my bedroom

SideTable Photo2

My side table is always piled high with books I’m planning on reading or have started. The ones below are typically forgotten for the most part. Poor books. This other bookshelf is also in my room and is my newest addition. I’m still working on filling it completely. I’m thinking I’m going to need another bookcase soon.


This bookcase is in my living room. The basket contains books I need to read but aren’t have to read right this instant.


This bookcase is in our office and holds all the books I’m willing to get rid of at some point. Giveaways, trades and donations.

Now to some of my collections…


My Sarah J. Maas collection. It’s taken me a little while to get all of these and I’m so thrilled to have them all. Thank you to the folks that helped me get ahold of ToG and CoM



My Leigh Bardugo Collection. I never though I’d own the S&B or S&S arcs but I do! These are my precious. Thank you dear friend that was so kind to trade with me.

    Wow it’s so cool to see all your shelves, you surely have collected a lot of books during all these years! Personnally, I would want the hardcover of the Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson (I spotted the arc near The Winner’s Trilogy) because I love this book but read it on my Kindle, but I bought the hardcover of the Heart of Betrayal… So I neeeed to own this one, because HOB feels lonely… Thank you for hosting this giveaway! 🙂

  2. Paméla B. says

    Wow what a great giveaway! Thank you so much! There would be so much to choose from, if I won! I think I would choose a copy of Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater. She is such an amazing author (and absolutely hilarious on Twitter!) and I’ve loved the whole Shiver Trilogy and this is missing from my shelf!

  3. says

    So many beautiful books! Thanks for showing them off, and for the giveaway. I would probably pick Blue Lily, Lily Blue, because I sadly don’t own it yet.

  4. says

    Absolutely no idea what I’d pick if I won, but KRISTEN WEREN’T YOU JUST SAYING THAT YOU DIDN’T ORGANIZE YOUR SHELVES BEFORE TAKING THESE PICS?!??!! If that’s disorganized, I don’t even… I can’t… your shelves are beautiful. They might not be arranged alphabetically but they sure don’t look disorganized! XD I love them!

  5. says

    Wonderful giveaway! Gorgeous shelves, I am having some serious shelf envy right about now. If I was lucky enough to win, I would absolutely love for you to choose something. One of your favourite recent reads, or your favourite book ever! Hearing about people’s favourite books is the best. But if I HAD to choose, I’ve wanted to read the six of crows series for a while xxx

  6. says

    I’d probably choose Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor. Thanks for the giveaway Kirsten. You have beautiful shelves. I love the ones in your living room really a lot!

  7. says

    Oh wow, I honestly love your shelves. I am envious of all of your hardbacks! Your collections are amazing!

    Thank you for the giveaway as well! Amazing bookshelves!

  8. says

    Your bookcases are so pretty!! I love how the top one is so full but organized in such a clean way. And your collections are awesome! I definitely have a few that I love displaying, too. 🙂

  9. Valerie Pennington says

    I LOVE looking at people’s shelves!!! I can’t wait to order some floor to ceiling shelves for my birthday in March. Happiness. I would choose The Winner’s Curse. I need it on my shelf. How pretty!

  10. says

    I adore the ladder looking bookshelf. I am seeing a few of those today! I also loved getting to see all of your collections. 😀 After looking at everyone’s beautiful shelves today I feel like I am the only one that only keeps one book on their nightstand, the one I am currently reading. lol Thanks so much for sharing and the giveaway! If I won I guess I would have to choose The Scorpio Races. 😀

  11. says

    Wow I’m completely in love with your collections!! I had an arc of Heir Of Fire and Throne Of Glass but I traded them because as much as I love owning them, I prefer to have the shelf space for a different book lol. I’m completely at awe with how many you have!! Also how are you able to watch TV when you’re books are all there? :O

  12. Dani says

    Amazing! I’m so wildly jealous of all your glorious bookshelves 😀
    Thanks for the giveaway too ^_^ I’d love a copy of Ember in the Ashes!

  13. says

    Lovely shelves! I’m glad you are getting some good trades in. If I won, I’m not sure which book I’d pick. Maybe The Bone Season since I was talking about that series not too long ago. (That’s the first one in that series right?) But then if it’s from the book depository, I may want to see what uk covers they might have because I’m trying to collect a few of them.

  14. says

    Psyched to do a shelfie hop as well hopefully soon! I’d love to get Heir of Fire since I’ve been craving it for so long, but local bookstores are yet to re-stock them since the release. Plus, I promised myself to stick to writing for NaNoWriMo this month. It would be an awesome reward!

  15. Nikki Lemmons says

    Thanks for hosting such a cool giveaway! If I won, is choose a hardcover copy of daughter of smoke and bone. I have the other two in hardcover, and it bothers me that they’re not the same format.

  16. cali says

    If I won, I think I’d pick Illuminae.

    Fabulous collection, although I don’t know how you can get any TV-watching done. 😉

  17. Megan S. says

    Thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway! If I was lucky enough to win, I think I’d choose Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor 🙂

  18. says

    I’ve always wanted something like yours, with shelves around the TV. Unfortunately if that were ever to happen, the space would be given to all my husbands games lol.

  19. Danielle D says

    I think I would pick Jodi Meadow’s Orphan Queen! Can’t wait for the second book and I don’t own the first yet! Love your shelves. Gotta work on getting mine cleaned out and looking pretty!

  20. says

    I love your shelves! SO PRETTY! I’m waiting after my wedding to get my shelves done. as of right now, my books are double and triple stacked on 2 bookcases. But after the wedding, my fiance is building me a library to give all my books a home.

    I’m not sure which book I would choose. Possibly Six of Crows (if I don’t buy it myself soon, lol) or maybe The Winner’s Curse? IDK. I would have to go through the pics and decide. 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway! I love this event! It’s so exciting to see everyone’s shelves!

    HOLY MOSES YOUR SHELVES ARE GORGEOUS! I think they’re my favorites I’ve seen on this tour thus far O_O I especially love your Leigh Bardugo collection. I was flipping out when I saw it. IF I WON YOUR GIVEAWAY! I’d probably get a Leigh Bardugo book or a Maggie Stievfater. Not sure. I love both authors and own next to NONE of their books *cries in shame*

  22. says

  23. says

    Your bookshelves are so extremely beautiful. I wish I had them. Thank you for sharing. I would love to own The Winner’s Curse. I have the second book and am in need of the first. Thanks!

  24. Zaira F says

    I see so many titles that I’ve been dying to read! I want to get either Shadow and Bone, These Broken Stars, or The Winner’s Curse 🙂

  25. says

    Hi! It’s so sweet of you to be hosting this wonderful giveaway! If I were to win I would choose one of The Winner’s books. And for the book that you will provide I would choose The Impostor Queen (pre-order).

    Thanks again for giving people such an amazing opportunity!

  26. Roxanne says

    OH MY GOD those shelves in your bedroom are gorgeous!!! I mean all your shelves are gorgeous but those are just magical. Thank you so much for the giveaway, I would choose Six of Crows 🙂

  27. says

    Such pretty bookshelves *love heart eyes*
    And so many books *more love heart eyes*
    I’ve got no idea which book I would choose if I won…I guess we’ll find out if I win…

  28. says

    Wow, I really love your shelves, especially your collections, they are gorgeous. And thank you for visiting my blog, it meant so much since I have been following your blog for years and I love it 🙂

  29. _Sandra_ says

    I would most likely pick Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor, missing that one in the trilogy.
    Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  30. says

    Wow. I’m very jealous of your shelves. These events always tempt me into buying a new book shelf. I kind of love the basket idea..its super inspiring. I should do a basket beside my bed since just leaving them on the floor results in them being pushed under my bed by a dog, thus rendering them forgotten..

    The Young World, Illuminae and the Raven Boys are all novels on my TBR list..although there are plenty of overlap in interests. I love how you have Encyclopedias 😀 and that ship is amazing!!

    Resisting temptation..
