Book Blogger Love-a-Thon 2015: Snapshots

Day 2 of Love-a-thon woohoo! First challenge for today is Snapshots! The task is to take some fun photos of your books. I’ve decided I’ll be sharing some “shelfies” aka bookshelf selfies.

A lot of my readers have requested that I do a bookshelf tour and I’ve always wanted to do it, but my bookshelf was a huge mess back then so I was kind of too embarrassed to share photos. At the beginning of 2015 though, I did a major reorganization which is why I’m able to share shelfies today!

Unfortunately, my dslr is unavailable atm as I let a friend borrow it and I had to use my very outdated iPhone to take pictures. *sad face* So I’m sorry for the crap quality photos you guys! I’ll do an official bookshelf tour sometime but for now I hope you guys like these bookshelf snapshots.

If you’re wondering why the perspective’s all weird, that’s because I used a fisheye lens for my iPhone! Anyway, as you guys can see I have four bookshelves in my room. The first one (top left) is by my bed/reading nook. All the stacked books on top are my TBR and the ones in the shelves are from various genres, Adult, New Adult, Classics, etc. My second bookshelf (top right) aka the rainbow shelf is where all my YA Contemporary books go. On the top are my favourites! Book shelf number 3 (bottom left) is my ARC shelf. This isn’t complete as I also have ARCs on my desk. Lastly, I have my series shelf (bottom right). This one is still very disorganised (at least the bottom shelves are) which is why I didn’t want to show it in full and decided to snap some bookish stickers I spotted on the shelf.

Anyway, that’s it! I can’t wait to see all your bookish photos! If you took some shelfies too, let me know so I can check them out!

  1. I actually think the fish eye lens makes the pictures stand out. Your rainbow organized-area caught my eye at the beginning, and I’m in love with your reading nook! Enjoyed the pics:)

  2. Nice! I like your use of the fish eyes lenses for this! The photos look really pretty. I actually have some but never used it yet – now I have some ideas! I use my iPhone 4S for almost all of my photos, it looks good if there’s sunlight. ;)

  3. Your photographs are so amazing :) I’m so impressed with them! I wish I was so talented lol. I spot Before I Fall on your bookshelves! I think I need to get myself some White bookshelves this summer. ;)

  4. You’ve got 4 shelves? I’ve only got one, and it’s all just crammed. And it doesn’t help that it’s in the most unflattering spot of my entire room. :/ Can I just have your room? I would love to have all that space for four shelves!

  5. I love you shelves – I wish I had as many books as that! Also, Hazel I have to ask, how do you make your graphics? As in where do you find such pretty fonts and backgrounds for them? I’m always so jealous at how pretty they are, as well as your pictures! :)
