Exposing My-Shelf: Shelf Seven

I am notorious for being very, very particular about where my books go on my shelves. I have reasons why they’re placed where they are. They might not make sense to anyone else but they make sense to me, so that’s all that matters. Every now and then my reasons will change or there will be an influx of new books(looking at you April/May/September) that will make it necessary for the system to be tweaked. Every Friday(hopefully) I’ll be posting a picture of one shelf and explaining the reasoning behind it. By the time I’ve posted every shelf section, it’ll be time to re-arrange and start all over again.


Shelf contains:

Every Last Word – Tamara Ireland Stone

Faking Normal – Courtney C Stevens

Don’t Touch – Rachel M Wilson

I’ll Meet You There – Heather Demetrios

The Last Time We Say Goodbye – Cynthia Hand

My Heart and Other Black Holes – Jasmine Warga

Made You Up – Francesca Zappia

Challenger Deep – Neal Shusterman

This is my “feels” shelf for contemporary standalones. Each one of these books touched me in a way I’ll remember, hopefully, for the rest of my life. Some of them had me shaking and sobbing, some had me thinking deeply after reading, some made me call a friend and force the book on them the second I was finished. I know I can pick one of these up when I need a guaranteed cry or they’re go-to book club suggestions.
