I kind of do it by genre and keep series together. But my bookshelf is so small so I’m looking for a new one.

Dalila Mandić (dalila93) | 98 comments I always keep a series together. But, I also try to keep genre and the publishing house together...

My previous shelf order went only by the publishing houses, so the genres were mixed, but also together...

Right now my bookshelf goes like this:
1. Classics
2. Fantasy YA
3. Romance YA
4. Romance
5. Mystery / Drama / Historical books
6. English books / Drama

message 8: by Alex (new)

Alex  Lantsov-Vanserra (alexthebookish) | 216 comments I have 5 shelves organized by series, one shelf of just Cassandra Clare, one shelf of stand-alones in rainbow order, and one shelf of stand-alones in alphabetical order.

It's kind of unconventional but it works for me.

bertille m (bertmarthou) | 22 comments my bookshelf is organized by publishing houses for aesthetic purposes lol and then in author alphabetical order, if more books from one author i classify by alphabetical order of the names of the books #crazy

daughterofathenacarli | 21 comments By emotion, keeping series together

Kaitlyn (kaitlynreadskaitlyn) | 70 comments Mine is kinda a mix between a lot of things. I have 3 series on the top in no particular order. On my second shelf I have middle grades first by kinda size and kinda color. On the rest of the second shelf I have a bunch of YAs again organized by size and color and maybe throw in a little genre organization. On the bottom left I have mythology books (Mostly Rick Riordan and a few Kate O’hearn). On the bottom right I have a bible, a couple of nonfictions, and some other church related books (I’m Catholic)

It's pretty, I watched your video and loved it!
My bookshelf lookes like someone bombed it, so I won't torture you with the details 😹!

message 16: by Rheanna (new)

Rheanna (goodreadscomuser_rheanna) I have a book case with 5 shelves and I organize them by genre:
Top shelf: Science Fiction, Thriller/mystery, and Non-Fiction because I don't have many of those.
Next: Fantasy
Next: Magical Realism, literary fiction, dystopian, historical
Next: Contemporary, and I have them in rainbow order because i don't know why.
Last: Middle Grade and my Harry Potter books because every time JK Rowling is trash I move them down a shelf lol.
I also have another shelf with my classics in a different part of my room.
If you can't tell I have a book buying problem.

message 17: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany I don't have many physical books since I read a ton of ebooks. The few physical books I do have are arranged like this: paperbacks (there are eight, I believe) are on the little shelf above my bed, and hardcovers (I only have two) sit on the bedside table.

☀︎ zoe ☀︎ (zoereadswithfairies) | 28 comments i have two bookshelves next to each other, the smaller one is completely arranged by colour, in an order of red, pink, purple, blue, green and a little yellow. my other bookshelf picks up where the other leaves of, colour-wise with colours yellow, orange, brown, black, grey and white. then i have all my “classics” and childhood favourites i couldn’t get rid of (aka mallory towers) and library books and then the bottom shelf is bigger books and my school stuff. i also have a bunch of random books and box sets on the top of the two lol

message 19: by Zoe (new)

Me too, I stage it by genre then alphabetically by the book title. Although it’s mostly messed up now.

Harper Hudson I do them alphabetically, but I may give in and do it by color

message 32: by Charlotte (new)

Charlotte When I get new book I put them on the one side and hen I kinda try and put the series with the same color next to each other but it’s a lot of work since almost every time a get a new book I have to reorganize it.
