18 & Over Book Blogger Follow #39: Show us the goods!


18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that begins on Fridays and runs through the weekend, hosted by Crystal from Reading Between the Wines. This is a Friday blog hop with the objective to find and visit other book blogs that share the same interest as you, namely books geared towards the 18 & over crowd, and make some new friends!

How to join in:
-You should run a book blog that features and reviews mostly adult reads, some Y.A.’s are okay but 18 & over adult reads should be your majority.
-Make a separate post for the 18 & Over Book Blogger Follow on your blog.
-Copy the html for the button above and place it at the top of your post.
-List & answer the ‘Question of the Week.’
-Place your name and blog title in the linky below and the url for a direct link to your post
-Visit the other blogs on the list and say 'Hi!' Following each blog is not mandatory but I know it is always appreciated, and if someone comments saying they’re a new follower it’s polite to follow back. J It’s always nice to spread the 18 & Over Book Blogging love!
-Contact me (readingbetweenthewines10 at gmail dot com) with any questions!

Question of the Week: Show us the goods! Share your bookshelves with everyone. Strictly eBooks? That's okay, take a pic of your reader! Give a tour of your shelves and have fun with it. J 

Showcase Bookcase
Okay *rubs hands together* let me share with you my precious's. *G*
I only have two book cases but I have several shelves lol 

This is my showcase bookcase and holds all of my favorite books and a lot of my signed books, if you look closely I'm sure you'll spot some of your favorites too! ;) There is some signed swag, swag and RTC's up there too. What do you all do with that stuff?

Next is an antique end table that I use for my really old historical romances. As you can see, these have been very well loved and the pages are about to fall out of their bindings but these were my first ever romance books and I just can't bare to get rid of them. 

Moving on is my second book case that it's my room. This holds the rest of my 'read' books, my Y.A. shelf and the top shelf are my 'review' books which is out of control at the moment and my Nook which we won't crack that open because it about gives me a heart-attack. LoL 

Old Historical's
Next up are some shelves in the entertainment center in our bedroom that I had to take over. lol This top shelf is my Kat Martin shelf. I have all of her releases in PB except her newest series which I have on my Nook. I just adore Kat Martin as you can tell. If you like historical romances then check out her older books, you'll fall in love. 
The next two shelves that you see are three deep, I think I can start my own bookstore with them. This my friends is my TBR shelf and the reason why I am currently on a book-buying-ban. Off hand I'd say there are 75+ books there. I have a problem, I know. You think we could start some kind of support group? lol 

For Review, Read & Y.A. Case
Lastly is my extra/giveaways shelf. These are books that I somehow have doubles of or I have strictly for giveaways. Looks like we're do for another one eh? Oh, and my swag bag full of swaggy goodness for giveaways as well. 

Hope you enjoyed the goods, I can't wait to see everyone else's! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

TBR Shelves


  1. oh wow, my shelves are a hot mess! You are so organized, way to go! My bookshelves need a major overhaul. I have book piles more so than any organization. You've inspired me :) Book Savvy Babe

  2. I have to confess that my shelves were pretty frightening until I cleaned them up this afternoon. I had the pile problem going on too. lol

  3. your shelves are so organized! haha ur TBR shelf is scary. I wouldn't even know where to start if I had that many books! But that's my goal though! I love looking at books even if they're just sitting on the shelf lol

  4. Wow.. totally envious of your bookshelves *sigh* you have so many books!! Very organized. o.O Your TBR shelf is INSANE!! wow. just wow..

  5. Love the swag mixed in on the display bookcase! I keep mine all in a box in the closet. Not nearly as fun!

  6. I'm so jealous of your shelves Crystal ;( </3 Ahhh, but I love it though!! :P This should be fun *hopping over to other's blogs*

  7. Great pictures! I get all of my books from the library/Kindle e-books, so I don't have any bookshelves in my house. But it's fun to see how others have their home libraries set up :)

    Just found your blog and I'm so excited to see this type of blog hop! I'm a new blogger and have discovered that the majority of book blogs out there seem to be YA focused. Nice to find something a bit more adult :)


  8. I'm embarrassed by the state of my "shelves". I'll have to do a follow up in two weeks!!

  9. I keep telling my husband, I need more bookcases! Some books are in boxes and they are sad to not be on display lol poor things!

  10. Nice Crystal..very nice ;) so organized, I love that. Have a great weekend.

    Here's mine ;)
