What’s on my Bookshelf?

I do have more than one bookshelf but thought that I would share what’s on just one of those shelves. I can’t get enough of true crime and non-fiction books and I think my book collection reflects this! So, before I start rambling here is what’s on one of my shelves:

There are quite a few which I haven’t got around to reading yet but I am hoping I can make a good dent in my ‘to read’ book pile this summer!

I have just started reading ‘Fog on the Tyne’ by Bernard O’Mahoney which I am very excited to read as I’m from Newcastle!

  1. I love crime stuff – true crime, crime novels, crime dramas… I find it all so fascinating… I should add that I’m not studying ‘how to be a criminal’ (I feel like it needed saying!).

    I can’t wait to move into my new place, but I really need to decide how to organise my books… by colour? Genre? Author name? Rating? Place on my ‘to read’ list?

    1. I sometimes feel like I need to tell people that too! Especially as I am studying criminology & psychological studies!

      I am desperate to re-organise my books too but can’t seem to find a way of doing it that I am happy with. IKEA seem to have some great storage so might have a proper look for something soon! Looks fab when people organise by colour but I feel like you need lots for it too look as great, hmmm.
