There’s a bunch of ways people organize their bookshelves. Some do it by color, some by author, some by series or genre. I find that it can be relaxing and kind of fun to organize your shelves.
The way I organize them changed recently, but I did keep some of it the same way as before, just in a new location.
So, here are my shelves for reference!
Okay, these first three pictures are all of just one bookcase.
First shelf (top left): It consists of tall story books and fantasy books (a few dystopian, too).
Second shelf: It consists of some of my favorite series/authors: The Mortal Instruments/Cassandra Clare, Throne of Glass/Sarah J Maas, and The Remnant Chronicles.
Third shelf (top right): It’s adult fantasy with some horror-esque/spooky novels and a few YA fantasy.
Fourth shelf: Science fiction, fantasy, dystopian, and some of the books I won from giveaways! (Because I had no where else to put them.)
Fifth (bottom) shelf: Some of my religious books, including my gigantic study bible, and the Harry Potter series trunk.
This large bookcase is one in which I put my primary books, aka the ones I want to get to ASAP. Mostly.
Next, I have two smaller bookcases with three shelves each and I arranged them a little differently.
Shelf one (top left): Hardcover contemporary and non-fiction, including some favorites.
Shelf two: Adult fiction, YA dystopian, and YA contemporary.
Shelf three (top right): Classics, classics, and more classics. And some DVDs we borrowed from a friend.
Shelf four (bottom left): Vampires, Narnia, unicorns. You know, because those go together.
Shelf five: Manga! And the Divergent series.
The shelf below that one is books I still have to donate, I just haven’t done it yet. (Attachments, man. I can’t help it.)
So really it’s up to you on how you want to organize your bookshelf. Maybe I’ll do a tutorial type of post soon about how to organize it in different styles, but I just wanted to show you the way I do them.
