Microreview Round Seven: Bookshelves
This round is open to interpretation, so don’t let the word bookshelves stop you. Whether your collection is big or small, physical or digital, your parents’ or from the library, it counts as a bookshelf here. To play: answer the prompts and tag your friends to do the same. Optional: use #microreview and check out @microreviews for “rules,” reviews, and more!
- What genres or types of books dominate your shelf?
Probably fantasy. I have about three shelves with mostly fantasy on them. A closer runner up would be either crime fiction or classics.
- What do you wish you had more of?
Books in general. But more specifically historical and contemporary fiction. Really specifically, I wish I had the rest of the Dark Tower series by Stephen King, I just have to get around to buying the rest of the series off Book Depository (I clearly have to get matching spines).
- Smallest book?
A really tiny reproduction of The School of Manners. It has all these rules for children from the 1700s, and some of them are very funny.
- Largest book?
Either Jonathon Strange and Mr Norell (that thing is huuuge), or my hardcover, illustrated edition of Pride & Prejudice and Sense & Sensibility, which I rescued from my Aunt’s house after she was going to take it to a thrift store.
- Oldest book?
I’m not sure which is physically the oldest book, but the one I’ve had the longest on these particular shelves, is probably The Mysterious Benedict Society or the Lord of the Rings.
- Newest book?
Avenged and Ruined by Amy Tintera - I won them last month from a FB giveaway with Allen & Unwin Teen.
- Does anything live there besides books?
Far too many things :)
Including, a jar of eyeballs, a very grumpy Captain America, numerous teapots, some candles and Jon Snow.
No pressure to do it :)
