Dirty Little Secret- How do you keep em?


Dirty Little Secret is a weekly meme hosted by the ladies over at Under the Covers. Every Thursday we get to know other bloggers and readers more intimately by asking them a question hoping to reveal their dirty little secrets. We hope that you will all join us! Click on the button up top to link up your post or if you don't have a blog join in on the comments! We wanna here from you too!




This week's question: 

"With so many great books out and about, are your bookcases super organized or are your books scattered all over the place? We'll show you ours, now show us yours"


I'm pretty organized with my books. Okay, no. I'm WAY organized with my books. I'm not even gonna lie I'm totally OCD when it comes to them. They're all over the place but there's a method to the madness even if no one else can tell :) These are my two favorite spots.


This is the living room bookcase and pup toy storage. It's my somewhat embarrassing TBR pile. These are all alphabetical. Not by specific author but more like all 'C' authors are together, etc. 

Then the guest room. Not the best pic of it since it's at night but this is where all of my read books end up. They're grouped by author but not alphabetical. Favorite authors get a better "spot" and are usually grouped with similar authors because they just look nice together :) 

The rest of the masses are over on this post from a couple weeks back on another meme if you want to check them out. 

So what about yall? Are you an organizer or are they all over the place?

    1. Oh you definitely should! I love them. Got them about a year ago and am so good I splurged a little. I was surprised how nice the quality was for the price. And you can mix and match from a bunch of different set ups to fit your space/etc. I'd buy them again in a heartbeat!
