It’s time to take a shelfie! There’s nothing I love more than doing a deep dive into the #shelfie tag on Instagram or twitter. There are so many different ways to create the perfect bookshelf, and I never tire of looking at them! Below are some of my favorite bookshelves that will give you total shelf envy.

I have progressed from being a stack of books on legs to having a head of flowers. Do I have a face??? Am I even real?? We don’t know. ?⁣ ⁣ ➸ tell me two things you love that seem contradictory?!⁣ ⁣ Because mine is my deep love for dark stories (knives and blood and monstrous things)…but I freaking love rainbows and bright colours and flowers. ? And my writing is the same. I either want you to laugh and feel squishy at the absolute cute moments — and then I just go ahead and slam you into the wall at the end so we’re all crying. Look it’s becoming a theme for me. I extend sincere (lol) apologies to you when you get to read The Boy Who Steals Houses. But it is my favourite happy/dark thing I’ve written.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #bookstagram #readersofinstagram #bookgram #homelibrary #shelfie #shelfies #bookshelf #flowerseveryday #softaesthetic #rainbowaesthetic #flowerstagram #yabooks #amwriting

I've also included links in the video description to the other two tours I have made in previous houses.
