Bookshelf Tour #3

Hello :) Here is the third installment of my Bookshelf Tour where I showcase all the books that I own whether they are on my bookcase or kindle. The last two installments were dedicated to my wonderful little kindle (which has plenty more books added to it since my last posts; oopsie!) which you can view here & here. Today I'll be showcasing the main shelf of books in my university room. I just love this shelf and it is where I keep all my favourite books so that they're on show. On the wall behind I also have a penguin book wall which I am planning on decorating with penguin postcards which are basically a set of a 100 book cover postcards. I can't wait I think it'll look fab. Also you'll notice a pattern in regards to my Tolkien books so if you want to learn more about my Tolkien obsession check out my post here. This will be a photo heavy post so if you want to see the pictures bigger just click on the images :) Enjoy!
