Bookshelf Tour Part 5: Wrap-Up

Hello, everyone!

As you may have been following along, the past few weeks, I’ve been highlighting my little personal library, since I loved seeing other bloggers do so and it was really fun. Four bookcases down and today is my final post–and it doesn’t even include a bookcase!

Instead, I’m going to highlight two more areas: my curio collectibles and my writing space!

I didn’t get any close up pictures of these cabinets because I couldn’t figure out to do so without crappy reflections, so you get the wide view, instead!

But, the cabinet on the left are all of my really special LOTR collectibles: from my Nazgûl and Witch-King figurines (including the Eye of Sauron encased by a Nazgûl tea-light candle holder!) to my Smaug incense burner, my Argonath bookends to my status of Arwen and Frodo reading; I mean, I fucking love each and every one of those collectibles. And the fact that they fit an entire case and I’m completely out of room for more only means one thing: time for another cabinet. 😀

My second one consists of all my dragon figurines! I’ve loved dragons since I was kid. I was convinced they were real (and I mean, they are, so…) and wanted to go and find them, one day. My Mom always got me one dragon figurine every Christmas, after she realized it wasn’t just a “phase” and I’m really happy to finally have them all in the same space for the first time.

The final space I wanted to highlight is my writing space! I am so in love with it. When we moved into this duplex last summer, the room I picked to be “my” room (we got a three bedroom apartment and my boyfriend and I each decided we’d get one room to turn into whatever we wanted); came with this little nook, which was perfect for my writing desk! It also has a bunch of fun, nerdy knickknacks that I just adore.

On my top shelf, you got plenty of little figurines from How to Train Your Dragon, plus a photo from the man and I at RenFaire! Then, I have my Anastasia music box that I LOVE with all of my heart. My Dragonborn and Rocket (formally known as Dogmeat, but I call him Rocket) are some of my favorite nerdy collectibles. Plus, a dragon I got from Oxford when my Mom and I visited their castle and a fake plant, since I can’t ever keep any alive. 20200209_163100

Then on the side (sorry for the shite quality of photo, I didn’t realize how badly this turned out when I first took it and I can’t be bothered to make it better at this point, honestly), I have a few more things!

A Harry Potter music box, a dragon pen my Dad got me, a steampunk golden raven on a skull I got from WorldCon in 2015 and two cards from dear friends!

I also have a few craft books on writing I desperately need to read, plus a “Writer’s Block Jar” my best friend made me a long time ago of prompts to help me get out of a jam, whenever I couldn’t come up with what to write next (and when I was in the middle of a writing block). Ironically, I’ve never had to open it, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love it to pieces. And who knows, maybe I’ll open it up for fun, one day.

Oh, and then there is my nug plush, who I LOVE. NUGS FOR LIFE.

With that, you have completed the official tour of my personal library! 🙂 Thanks for joining me and offers so many kind comments. I’m really happy to be in a place where I finally have all of this in one space (throughout high school, college and a few years after, it was all spread in boxes across numerous spaces). Thanks for letting me use this space to show it off and staying kind and non-judgmental in the comments!

If you ever do a library or writing space tour, let me know or link it below, as I’d love to see it! Otherwise, I hope you all are doing as well as you can and staying as healthy as you can! post signature

  1. Nice collection and writing space. Can’t show mine unfortunately with the lockdown I’m having to use my ever messier dining room table.

  2. OOOH the Argonauth book ends *-* I covet those even more than the Evenstar haha. Last year I did a tour of my sister’s bookshelves (quite different from my own), but it’s been a few years since I toured my own shelves and they are different enough now that I might try a tour later in the year 🙂

    1. I know!! I found them randomly at WorldCon one year when I went and I spent the ENTIRE day debating whether I should buy them or not and I am SO glad that I did. 😛 Oooh, I would LOVE to see a tour of shelves! I think it’s so much fun and I’d be curious to see them, if you’re comfortable with it! 😀
