I had this idea for awhile, and so I decorated this bookshelf last summer. I kept forgetting and forgetting to post pictures on my main blog… but here it is! I’m so in love with it, I want to do all my bookshelves like this. I used spray adhesive to stick book pages to a bookshelf, and then went over it with matte mod podge. From taking apart the books to the last of the mod podging, it took  around 30 hours, but it was (mostly) easy work. I used books I already had, but plenty of used bookstores and library sales have bargain sections of books for $1 or less if you didn’t want to use your own books. The mod podge warped the paper a bit, which I don’t mind, but if you don’t want that to happen, you really have to take your time and be careful.

I used Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Hobbit, Wildwood Dancing, and The Chronicles of Narnia. I loved them all as a kid/young teenager they still mean a lot to me now!

“He learned patience and humility; you learned compassion. You both learned love. At least, that was the intention. Don’t look at me like that, young lady. I have your best interests at heart.”

As my feet touched the home shore, I felt the surge of relief that always filled me at this point. We’re back again. I’ve kept them all safe. 

YA lit Challenge [7/7 friendships] Tatiana, Jenica, Iulia, Paula, & Stela - Wildwood Dancing, Juliet Marillier 


Juliet Marillier today at the book launch and signing of the portuguese version of Seer of Sevenwaters. 

During the very interesting question and answering she said that she is already working on a 6th book for the Sevenwater series that will probably occur 6 years after the 5th one, and there might be a possibility for a continuation of Wildwood Dancing/Cybele’s Secret with Stella as the protagonist.

There were also other great questions and I loved the answers she gave to which one was her favorite character, favorite magical character, how and where she usually writes, what gives her inspiration, favorite scene and least favorite one.

She’s a lovely human being, very kind and humble.
