Book Shelves

Bookshelf Tour 2015 – Part 2

Welcome to this part 2 of my 2015 bookshelf tour in August. Today I’ll be showing you my second half of the left book case. This will be four shelves. Two of them are completely TBR books so I will not be able to say much about those two shelves. But hey, there will be some pictures! Like I said in part 1, any books bought in August will not appear in these pictures. I messed up a little though. I thought I had taken all the pictures for this book case already so I already had to change things around for a few books from August I added in. So I don’t have close-up pictures of half the shelves like I did in the first part. Hopefully I will have them for the other book case though. Things have been so busy. I hope you guys can forgive me for that mess-up.

Shelf 4

This shelf has some tall books that only fit there in the left corner. Most of these other books are all series I have started but not finished, or series that aren’t all out yet. I’ll be skipping the tall books below. Below this shelf you can see my TBR jar and my Blossom Books mug which holds some of my book marks at the moment.

The Restorer (The Graveyard Queen 1) by Amanda Stevens
★ I read The Restorer earlier this year as an ebook, and enjoyed it a lot. So when I saw this Dutch physical edition I had to grab it.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer 1) by Michelle Hodkins
★ You’ve seen me haul this book in my boekenfestijn haul, and  as my review told, I really liked this book.

The Darkest Minds and Never Fade from The Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken
★  I really enjoyed The Darkest Minds. The foursome in the first book is so great. I have yet to finish this trilogy though as I am waiting on the paperback release of In the Afterlight which isn’t out yet here.

A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird 1) by Claudia Gray
★ The book with the stunning cover. I enjoyed this book mostly for its idea. I’ll be curious to see how it will be continued this coming November.

Enchanted Inc, Once Upon Stilletto’s, Damsel Under Stress and Don’t Hex in Texas from the Enchanted Inc. series by Shanna Swendson
★  These books are fantasy chick lit books that I’ve had for a while. I really like them. They are funny and fast reads. The first two are the best though. There are three more books out in this series I believe. I just haven’t gotten around to getting them yet.

I Am Number Four, The Power of Six and The Rise of Nine from The Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore
★  I haven’t started this series yet, despite having three books that are awfully mismatched. I saw the movie years ago though, and I’m curious to see how the books are. It’s sci-fi so hopefully I’ll like it.

Throne of Glass, Crown of Midnight and Heir of Fire from The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
★  Despite really loving Heir of Fire, the third book, I dont know if I will be continueing this series. I just can’t seem to get excited about the next book.

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha 1) by Leigh Bardugo
★  I really need to get the rest of this series.

Graceling (Graceling Realm 1) by Kristin Cashore

Lullaby (Watersong Quartet 2) by Amanda Hocking
★  I only have the second book as I own the first book as an ebook. I wasn’t happy with this sequel and I am not sure if I will continue this series.

Howl’s Moving Castle and Castle in the Air by Diana Wynne Jones
★ These are companion novels. I really need to get The House of Many Ways. Howl’s Moving Castle is one of my favourite books. I really recommend it.

The Magicians and The Magician King from The Magicians by Lev Grossman
★  I found The Magicians years ago at a train station when I was waiting on my husband coming from college. I picked it up on a whim and ended up really liking it. I didn’t know there was a continuation for the longest time until I found Goodreads. The Magician King I found in a second hand book store.

Shelf 5

This shelf is a TBR shelf. I have read none of these books. These are organised by height. And my e reader is on the right. I won’t say much about these as I haven’t read them, but I’ll still list them as some are in Dutch.

Seeker (Seeker 1) by Arwen Elys Dayton

Fire (Graceling Realm 2) by Kristin Cashore

Shelf 6

This shelf holds the mass market paperbacks. As you can see, there is no way to put taller books on this shelf.

The Sword of Shannara, The Elfstones of Shannara and The Wishsong of Shannara which are the first three books of the original Shannara trilogy by Terry Brooks
★ I’ve had these for a while now, but haven’t picked them up. I think this one is heavily compared to The Lord of the Rings.

Well of Darkness, Guardians of the Lost and Journey into the Void from the Sovereign Stone trilogy by Weiss & Hickman
★ Another one I’ve had for a while, but I haven’t picked up. Also fantasy that I haven’t heard of a lot. Hopefully I’ll get around to it.

The Way of Shadows, Shadow’s Edge and Beyond the Shadows from The Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks
★ I picked up The Way of Shadows years ago at a train station again while I was waiting for my husband coming from college. I ordered the other two really quickly after starting the first, and read those during our Egypt trip in 2009. Really enjoyed them, but I can’t remember that much from them so I want to reread them at some point.

A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons from A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin
★ Most will have heard of this series. I recently caught up to it, and now the long wait for the sixt book starts.

Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr and Inheritance from The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
★ I read Eragon last Summer and enjoyed it for the most part. I’m curious to see how the story continues. Dragons, you know.

★ I bought this last year, thinking as this has a different main character that I can pick in here, but I can’t.  I have the first book, Darkfever on my e reader so I’ll get around to this series some day.

So that was part 2. Which books of my tbr shelves have you read, and which would you say I have to read right away?

Next Thursday I will show you the first half of my right book case.
