Shelfie Sunday – Red Books

Red Books Shelfie

Shelfie Sunday is a new blog meme on Cafe Manon. I was thinking about a way to showcase my books, but my bookcase isn’t pretty like some of the bookcases I adore seeing on Pinterest or Instagram.. So, I decided to cheat a bit and create ‘shelf-categories’.

Today I’m sharing my first shelf-category, which is Red Books.

Curious to know more about the books on my Red Books Shelf?

2 / Have you read all the books on this shelf?

No, not even close.. I have read 5 of the 10 books on this shelf.

To be honest I only bought TED Talks because I thought I could use it for my classes at college. And I never read more than half of the first book of Game of Thrones (although I did watch the TV series multiple times), so I never got to book #4. I plan to read the book series too, but it’s quite intimidating.

3 / The newest addition on this shelf.

That has to be A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews. I received it in June in the Ilumicrate Hidden Talents book box. This book is on my BookTube-A-Thon TBR, so I hope to start reading it in the next couple of days.

Nightfilm by Marisha Pessl

4 / The oldest book on this shelf.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I’ve had this book since it was first published in 2003.

5 / Your favorite book on this shelf.

I will always love Harry Potter, and Order of the Phoenix is actually my favorite book in the series.

But on this shelf I think Nightfilm by Marisha Pessl is my favorite. This is such a mysterious thriller and I loved the story about Cordova, a fictive cult-horror film director. Just thinking about it makes me want to re-read this book!

Order of the Phoenix

6 / Your least favorite book on this shelf.

Mens by Eric Bartels. Never finished this non-fiction book. He states to improve the world, you must start with improving yourself and he needs a lot of words to explain this simple idea.

7 / Tell a story about one of the books on this shelf

(How did you get it? What does it remind you of? Where have you read it?)

I won a copy of The World of Ice and Fire in a giveaway by a local bookstore! I won it by answering a question on their Facebook-page (the question was; What’s the title of the fifth book in the Song of Ice and Fire series?). This book is beautifully illustrated and the book tells the story of the history of the Seven Kingdoms of Game of Thrones. I love flipping through the pages and admiring the gorgeous drawings.

  1. So do you organize your shelves by color? I have never been able to do this. I would never find anything! Your photos are stunning by the way 🙂 The only ones I have read are GRRM <3
