Review - Bookshelf Tour! - Vlog - Part 2


In this second episode, we continue on with more books in my physical bookcase. On this shelf, it's mostly fairy tales and 19th-century literature, from E. T. A. Hoffmann and Mary Shelley, to Nathaniel Hawthorne and the Brontë sisters. Let me know if you've read any of these!

  1. a charming presentation! i've read quite a few of them; exceptions are Shirley, and The Idiot... i've meant for years to read the latter, but the reviews have painted a pretty grim picture of it... since i'm old, i tend to prefer cheerful books: probably a character failing, one might say... or not... anyway, nice selection of books and a good idea... tx....

    1. The Idiot is certainly a tearjerker and a train wreck. That said, you may enjoy Shirley! I found it to be surprisingly enthralling, a snapshot of a Yorkshire family during the Napoleonic Era.

  2. I really enjoyed this video. I don't know about you but I find some covers and editions really irresistible. That is why I cannot buy a cheaper copy of a book if the edition does not appeal to me.

    Interesting that you file your books according to chronology. I have mine in alphabetical order and according to subject (fiction, biography etc..)

    Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Thanks, Sharon, it was fun to film! I am exactly the same way - I try to choose editions with pretty cover art, since it's part of the experience (and I spent too many years with drab library covers).

      I like the idea of organization by category! Forgot to mention in this video that I just moved my nonfic to a new bookshelf, so there is an overall division of fic vs. nonfic. :)
