Welcome to the bookshelf tour! Previously: Nonfiction | Buddhism & Yoga | Poetry & Adult Fiction | Adult Fiction & Graphic Novels | Horror & Classics | Tolkien | Contemporary Romance | Middle Grade | Middle Grade & Classics | Harry Potter & Shadowhunters | Urban Fantasy, Part I, II. ICYMI, since I’m not on Booktube, and never will be, I wanted to travel through my shelves on a biweekly adventure on the blog. Since these are going to be pretty long, I won’t ramble on, so let’s get to it! About half of these are read, though probably only a handful are reviewed, so I’ll link to Goodreads if it’s available.
Oh, I’m so mad about these pictures because I just did some rearranging at the end of June to accommodate the massive amount of contemporaries that I read for Pride, so now this shelf doesn’t actually look like this, and I am Mad with a capital M because there’s a snowball’s chance in hell of me retaking these pictures since these shelves are so tricky to get to. Anyway.
We’re nearly at an end with crystals on shelves because this is somehow nearly the end of the third bookcase! It’s wild to think that we’re closing in on the best shelves still to come. But anyway, we’ve got five clear quartz points, one on its own and four on top of a pink peony petals candle (fun fact: I can’t pronounce peony to save my life), a huge desert rose selenite, another clear quartz point, a massive clear quartz cluster that I think looks like it belongs in The Dark Crystal on top of one of my absolute favorite candles, wilde rose, I think those are raw howlite, a broken tumbled howlite, a skinny white pillar candle someone gave me, and a black tourmaline infused clear quartz on top of a white gardenia petals candle. Obviously, I love floral everything.
And without the stuff so you can actually see the books.
My top three in this section is:
