Bookshelf Tour! A's

Hello everyone! 
 After seeing this post on Shantelle's blog, I knew I wanted to do something similar. However, I knew I'd never find the time to take pictures and type out the titles and authors of all my books at once. So I thought of an alternative. :D My books are organized by the author's last name, so I'll post each letter separately. For example, today I'll post all the books whose author's last name starts with A. Get it? Sound fun? Then let's get started! :)

Y'all know how over-obsessive I am with stickin' in lots of pictures so hang with me. :) 

Here's the top three shelves of my six-shelves bookshelf. Any comments about all the clutter (especially on shelf-3) is not accepted. B-) 

I spread the books out on my rug beside the bed. Ain't it a pretty rug, by the way? ;)

- Ester Reid by Isabella Alden

- Poetry Potpourri  
- Camp AG
- Confessions of a Former Only Child

- Your A-Z Guide to Trying New Things

Let me stop here and explain before I go on. I have lots of American Girl books (AG). Instead of putting them on my shelf according to author's last name, they're all on there as "American". :-) I've did this with a few other sets, but I'll add that in when the time comes.  :)

Have you guys read any/all of these books? Did y'all enjoy this? Would you like for me to continue? Leave a comment and let me know! :D

Thanks for reading! 


  1. Definitely continue! I have read some of your books, a few of the American Girl series, but I have to say that Josefina and Kirsten were my favorites of them all. ;) Which was your favorite series that you've read by them?

    1. I haven't read all of Josefina or Kirsten, though I'm not sure why. :) I really enjoyed Addy and Caroline. For a number-1 favorite, I'd have to go with Caroline. ;D

      Glad you're enjoying this, Rebekah!! :) Thanks for commenting!

  2. Fun idea!! My sister and I used to have tons of AG stuff! I read a few of the books...whatever my library had. Felicity was my favorite :-) loved the movie and I even had the Patriot horse from the AG catalogue.

    1. I have lots of AG stuff too! I still have it, all boxed up in the basement. :) I used to go straight to these books when I was at the library and before I was able to get them myself. ;)
      Yes, I love the Felicity movie! Actually mine is currently at a friends house... :-/ Really? At one time I wanted one of the horses, but there was always things I'd 'rather have'. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Lauren!!

  3. Yes, please do continue!! I love seeing what books other people have!! :D

    And beautiful collection of American Girl books! Felicity's are especially beautiful! ;) I would like to have that series on my shelf because I have the doll, Felicity; and I love colonial day stories; and those are just great books for younger girls!! <3

    Looking forward to the next post! :)

    1. Thank you, Shantelle! Yes, they are beautiful books.

      Really?! Of all the dolls from years ago, I didn't get Felicity. A friend of mine had her, and she would bring her when they came to visit from FL. So pretty! XD

      Glad you're enjoying it! Thanks for commenting, Shantelle. :)

  4. You're so organized :D Your girl of the year books basically pick up where mine stop. I think I have Jess, Nicki, Mia, and Lanie! And that Kirsten treasury was my life when I was little!!! I can't wait to see the next posts!

    1. Well..the books are the only thing in my room that's organized. :) I've read the Nicki, Mia, and Jess books too, but I don't own them. Nicki was one of my favorites of the Girl of the Year books. ;) The Kirsten books are good. I think I nearly cried when Marta died in book-1. :'(

      Glad to hear your enjoying this, Ashley!! Thanks for commenting! }

  5. This is such a fun post, Faith. I think you should continue.
    It's always lots of fun seeing other peoples books. : )
    I have read the Samantha and Julie books and most of the Caroline ones.

    1. I love seeing others' books too! The Samantha and Julie books are good, but Caroline is a favorite. :)

      Thank you, Rebekah! Glad you enjoyed. ;-)

  6. Wow, you have an awesome collection of AG books! :D I only have one set, the Felicity set, because when I was younger I hated the other ones. ;)
    Definitely continue the posts!!! Maybe some day when I have a month with nothing to do I'll do this. :P But life's crazy right now, so I'll just look forward to reading your posts!! :)

    1. Haha, I've hated certain books from time to time. :)
      A month with nothing to do? When you figure out which month that is, let me know. :D LOL. When you find this time, I'd love to see your books! :)

      Glad your enjoying this, Jesseca! Thanks for commenting! ;)

  7. Fun post! I have read:
    Who was Anne Frank?
    Aloha, Kanani
    and I think McKenna.

    But that's all as far as of the books that you have! I had a ton of fun reading this! (I might have to on my blog!) Please continue! Thanks for posting!

    1. Those are all good ones. :) I didn't like Isabelle as well as some others, though.
      I'd love to see this on your blog, Bethany!
      I'm glad your enjoying it. Thanks for commenting! :-)

    2. You are most definitely welcome! I haven't made up my mind yet as to whether or not I am going to do it on my blog, I'm not sure if all my adult readers would enjoy it very much. . . . I'll have to see. Here's and idea: what if all us reader's started a joint blog where we did this sort of stuff and whenever we got a new book, posted it? I donno. Just and idea! At this point I don't know if I should be attempting to maintain another blog! I'm sure you get it!

    3. That would be really cool!! Book blog = AMAZING!!! ;) Great idea, Bethany! =D

  8. I have the Caroline and Felicity books and I have the Felicity doll.
    I really enjoyed playing with the American Girl stuff when I was younger.

    1. I love the Caroline books!! They're probably my favorites. ;) Me too!! I still have all my AG stuff in the basement closet. ^_^
      Thanks for commenting, Tia Eve!!
