|This is Maurice :)|
This was Maurice last year, she looks a little empty right? Over the course of a year and a bit, my bookshelf encountered a little ( read HUGE) growth spurt. Maurice could no longer hold all my books and therefore I had to buy Maurice a companion - Theodore. Now Maurice and Theodore look like this -
|Maurice on the right and Theo left :) They're BFFL's!|

THE BOOKSHELF TOUR ( A closer look inside Maurice and Theodore*)
So most people have a very logical way of organising their bookshelf - I DON'T! As long it looks good than that's fine with me :) I like my shelves to look neat so I always, ALWAYS organise it by size ( even if it means separating series!) Anyway, I'll get on with it
*Click on pictures for a closer look :)
Maurice Row #1 and #2 -
Row #1 are all vampire related books, mainly black covers ( which is why I keep them all together - it looks good :P). The books include Morganville Vampires series, Heather Brewers Vampire Chronicles, Twilight Saga, an incomplete Vampire Academy series + Bloodlines by Richelle Mead :)
Row #2 are all hardcovers. Some are signed and some are not.It's organised by colour :P Some of the books include (signed) Enclave by Ann Aguirre, Hex Hall series, Paranormalcy series, Hourglass, Unearthly and A Need So Beautiful among others!
Maurice Row #3 and #4 -
Row #3 are all standard size paperbacks ( except for Epic Fail and Sirenz at the end). I've tried to keep the colour co-ordinating going. The left side are mainly blues and the right are blacks and navies! You can enlarge to see the titles!
Row #4 are a random assortment of hardbacks and massive paperbacks. Again, tired to keep it colour co-ordinated and failed but at least all the books are in descending heights!
Maurice Row #5 and #6
Row #5 are also paperbacks. Few ARCs thrown into the mixture.
Row #6 are a random assortment again! As you can see their is a gap - on the left are all the books that I need to trade and on the right are some paperbacks and ARCs!
Theodore Row #1 and #2 -
Row #1 - Random assortment of books. The colour scheme is again at work but it doesn't really look like it's been co-ordinated! I've tried to keep series together!
Row #2 - My proudest row! Again I've tried the colour co-ordination and it's SORTA worked this time! As you can see purple, blue,yellow, orange, pink, red, dark green, navy/dark blues, browns and blacks!
Theodore Row #3 and #4 -
Row #3 - ARCs/ Large Paperbacks and EXTRA Large Paperbacks. Few 2012 YA Debuts in there!
Row #4 - Standard paperbacks.
Theodore Row #5 and Row #6 -
Row #5 - THE REALLY RANDOMS ( There are Aussies YAs, Adult novels and mini paperbacks!)
Row #6 - Not really featured because it doesn't hold books. It holds my two swag boxes, packaging for mailing books, postage stamps, PR releases ( YES I CAN KEEP THEM - I love them :P) and notes from nice bloggers!
And that's a cut!
