Book Blogger Hop #17

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme run by Coffee Addicted Writer. Every Friday, a question is posted for the book blog community to discuss. This week’s question is…

Do your bookshelves have books ONLY or do you also have bookish items on the shelves?

I have books, bookish items, and non-bookish items on my shelves. Actually my shelves are in a pretty sorry state. There is a lot of clutter on them and they’re usually my go to place to put things when I have no idea where to put them. If I wasn’t ashamed I would post a picture of my shelves but no one needs to see that!

Ideally, my shelves would only contain books. I’m not quite so sure about bookish things. I guess a handful of bookmarks would be appropriate on shelves. I want to cut down on my figurines and memorabilia so I am hesitating on putting book related objects like those on my shelves.

  1. As you know from visiting my post, I have a LOT of books!! Lol. So I really don’t have the room to put anything else on my shelves. There are people who love to put knicknacks, photos and figures such as Harry Potter Funko Pops on their shelves. Those are SUPER cute!! Everyone has different tastes.

    I can relate to your feeling too embarrassed to put up pics of your shelves. There’s a small bookcase in our bedroom which has a few bookish items on the top shelf — three Harry Potter wands, and one plushie, which is a small, pink, winged unicorn. Lol. That bookcase is too cluttered, so I didn’t include a picture of it in my post.

    Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my BBH post!! Happy Saturday!! <3 🙂

    1. Thanks for commenting! 🙂

      I really enjoyed looking at everyone’s answers this week. Kinda makes me wish I took better care of my bookshelves but at the moment they are in a temporary space!

  2. My bookshelves are also full of clutter. 😅 I have bandages and water bottles and powder and some Kleenex tissues—and a pencil and maybe a pen, I can’t remember exactly right now. My bookshelf is shared with other items, though; I just have three shelves, so I try to make the most of my space.

    1. Good to know I’m not the only one with clutter! My junk is really random. A lot of pens, markers, old batteries… I really need to clean up one of these days. I feel you on utilizing space efficiently. I have too many things and too little space…
