Wednesday: Top 5 Wednesday July 26th: Series That Got Better


This week I have been participating in 2 readathons. The Summer Biannual Bibliothon and the BookTubeAThon. It was so much fun, and I have read a lot more books than I usually would in a week. You will have to wait for my full update to see how it went, but it will be posted some time next week.

IMG_20170725_201657_019On Tuesday my mom and I went to visit a friend in town. She just opened her own store and of course we had to take a look at it. After the visit we went and got a coffee together at Starbucks. Starbucks came to my city just a few years ago, so I haven’t tried everything on the menu. This time we went out of our comfort zone and ordered a frappuccino with caramel syrup. It was delicious, but oh so sweet and unhealthy. How can people drink this every day? I will definitely have one again, but only in the summer.

The last few months we have been planning that I will slowly move inn with my BF, or at least try it out. I had to wait until my Croatia trip was over, because I didn’t have the energy to do other things than prepare for the trip, both mentally and physically. This week I have packed down all of my books that was at my parents house and moved them to my BF. Books is the most important to pack, haha, and underwear. Now I finally have a nice place to store all of my books, yay! I’m not 100% happy with the layout of the books, but I have less space than I though. I think I need to purge some of the books I don’t like anymore. A book unhaul might come in the future.


I have been at my BF’s apartment (our apartment?) since Wednesday, and it has gone pretty well. We had plans for a barbeque yesterday, but I didn’t feel so well. I have been struggling with some enhanced symptoms and body aching this week. I think it might have been a bug or something, because it’s not my usual symptoms.


Do you have any tips on how I should organize this bookshelf? 

I wish you all a great week!

Tell me about your week, what have you been up to?

  1. How do you read more than one book at a time? I see on your lists that you are reading 5 books right now. Usually I find that if I start a new book before I finish the other it spoils the journey of the book, (or I just forget what page I was on.) That’s just my opinion; it’s great that you can multitask with books. As for how to organize your bookshelf, I literally have no social life and spend my days volunteering at my local library sorting books. So, as a professional organizer of books, you have a lot of options;
    1. By last name like a library… (I personally find that boring)
    2. By genre, like the top shelf dystopian, next shelf Realistic, etc (might not work for you since most of those books look scifi/dystopian) already. Or stand-alone books vs books in a series.
    3. By order of priority, since you read a lot of books at once
    4. By favorites or least favorites
    5. Or my personal favorite, by emotion. Sad books, happy books, inspirational books, books to read when I’m mad, etc.


    P.S. Hope you feel better!

    1. Haha. I like to mix it up. The books I’m reading are all in different genres and formats. I always have one audiobook and one written book at the same time.

      Thanks for the tips 😀 Number 3, 4, 5 is a new way of thinking of organizing! I like it! The biggest problem is that I don’t want to mix my read and unread books.
