I have been wanting to make this post for quite some time and now…my beautiful little bookshelf is finally ready to be presented! Today I am going to be sharing not only the books on my shelf but also the objects that accompany them. As you can see in the overall image, my organisation system of choice is colour-coordination. I adore seeing rainbow shelves online so I did the same for mine. The two shelves on the bottom left are not colour-coordinated because they are a bit random but the complete right side is. The majority of the books you will see are YA (Young-Adult). I have more than this but they are currently stored away. Once Francis and I buy our house, I will be able to set them up on my larger bookcase and post an updated tour.
If you were wondering, I purchased this shelf at Target in Australia. I love the box-like design. You may notice that the white and wood are mismatched. This is because Francis and I put it together incorrectly and couldn’t be bothered changing it over haha!
MY MINI RAINBOW BOOKSHELF!
At the very top, I have my plushies: (Misa-Misa from Death Note, Niko the Shy Cat, Artemis the White Cat, Willy the Whale and Cluckers the Chicken). Underneath them is The Disney Book: A Celebration of the World of Disney. It is filled with fun facts, beautiful images and information about all of the films. The heart runner across the top was a purchase from the Oxfam store.
Also resting on The Disney Book is my bookmark box. If you wish for me to post a bookmark collection blog, let me know!

At the front, I have a rose-quartz stone that I purchased on a road-trip and to the right, I have my beach terrarium. The air-plant died so I need to replace it. You can also see my Oxfam heart runner hanging from the side.
We now come to my adorable Tsum Tsum collection!

I love them! I need more!
We now leave the rainbow-section and enter a more miscellaneous area. From left to right, we have:

Back when I was a teenager, I read the first 4 books and the 5th never came to my local library so I couldn’t continue. Now, I am currently reading it all over again and loving where I left off – highly recommend!

On this shelf, Nick Wilde from Zootopia guards my darker books.

At the front is my tea-light candle holder from Aladdin the Musical. Underneath is the special illustrated editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I adore them!
On my final shelf, there are more miscellaneous books. From left to right, we have:

- My Rainbow Rowell Collection: Kindred Spirits (World Book Day 2016 Edition – Short Story), Attachments, Landline, Fangirl, Eleanor & Park and Carry On. *Rainbow Rowell fast became my favourite female author (alongside Anne Rice of course!). I have read every one of her books and own them all. Each one is 5/5 stars!
On the far left, I have a pack of Shadowhunter Tarot Cards which I purchased from Cassandra Clare’s website. The artwork is stunning and each card features one of the many incredible characters from the Shadowhunter series. I have read every Shadowhunter/Cassandra Clare book so far.
So that was my mini-rainbow bookshelf tour! I truly hope you enjoyed it. Let me know which books you recommend I read next & what your favourite YA read this year has been so far. For me, it’s definitely Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.
Thank you for reading. Peace & Love xoxo

Illuminae really caught my eye on your shelf so I’ve promptly ordered a digital copy from my library!
I presume you liked it since you’re going to get it signed? 🙂
It’s so fantastic, you will really enjoy it! I actually read it at the start of this year not knowing that the authors were coming down to Melbourne so it’s really awesome that they will get to actually sign it!
Cool! Looking forward to it 🙂
Great post by the way. I’m a fan of Nick Wilde too 😉
Thanks so much! Appreciate you stopping by! Nick Wilde is the best 😃
Love the rainbow coloured shelf, Bec. It looks so organised and those sound like some memorable books. Sailor Mercury looks soooo cute. Did it come with the stand? Also didn’t know you had a stack of tarot cards. I have always toyed around with the idea of playing with them, but never found the time to. Always a pleasure coming by your blog my friend. Very entertaining blog post as usual <3
Thank you so much my friend! I knew you would like it 🙂 yes Sailor Mercury came with the stand. Francis bought it for me for Christmas. I haven’t used these tarot cards in a proper reading, I just love the artwork but it would be nice to learn how. Hope you’re well <3 <3 <3
It is such a beautiful gift from Francis to you <3 Artwork can be so beautiful and inspiring. I've never been one to try a tarot reading because it gets me nervous of what's too come. Wishing you very well my friend <3
I love this post! Your bookshelf is beautiful, and I am going to try out some of the books I saw on your shelf 🙂
Thank you so much, that is really kind of you! Let me know what you buy! x
I just started Illuminae a few days ago. what a strange reading experience so far! Even stranger perhaps because it’s on a Kindle so I’ve no idea it will stay in this format all the way thru or not 🙂
It is absolutely incredible! Stick with it! The entire formatting stays that way but that’s what makes it so unique. It just gets better and better 🙂
Love the book box and your book collection is amazing. I love your blog. I read couple of your posts and they are very good.
Please take a look at my blog too.
Thank you so much! I will definitely check out your blob too 🙂
