Hello everyone! So today I’m updating my Harry Potter Bookshelf post! So I actually posted this originally on August 15, 2016, but have added a few items. Take a look!
The original post:
A little bit ago I promised a tour of my bookshelves but they’re still not ready for a full post. Instead I decided I’d do a post on my favorite shelf, my Harry Potter shelf!
If you don’t know, the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling is my favorite of all series. So I have dedicated one shelf just for Harry.
On the far left I’ve started my books, the originals in order. The first book is in paperback, that I bought from a school order form when my third grade teacher started reading the series to the class. Then you might notice that I have two copies of the third book. I bought a newer book years ago because that’s my favorite book and I read it so much that I actually broke the spine of the book. At the very end I put in the “eighth” book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. (My review of this book can be found here.)
Next to the books is a stack of Potter/Rowling related books. Starting from the bottom of the stack, The Causal Vacancy by J.K. Rowling is also on this shelf because it’s by the same author.
Next is my Harry Potter books from foreign countries. First is the sixth book in the series but it is the Mexican version of the book that my mother bought for me a few years ago as a present during one of her visits to see her family. Then it’s followed by the Spanish copy of the third book, which I got while studying abroad in Spain, and a copy of the third book from England, which a college classmate got for me during a study abroad session of their own.
And lastly I have a copy of Harry Potter and History by Nancy Reagin. (Short review of this book found here in my January Wrap Up.)
And to top it off I have a Hedwig backpack that my sister and I have had for years but she recently found and snuck onto the shelf. I also have a metal bookmark with the Hogwarts emblem on it as well.
Off to the right I have a non-Harry Potter postcard framed up of a Barcelona market. To me it does have some meaning as I wrote papers on Harry Potter for my psychology class aboard. I plan to get some sort of Potter art someday for this shelf but for now I’ll keep this one up.
So I’ve added quite a few items. Some notable additions are books such as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as well as the Quidditch Through the Ages, and some other merch! Here’s the updated shelfie!
The merch includes a wand that was DIY (although not by me) that I got at a local library Harry Potter event, a set of Harry Potter make up brushes that my sister gave me, and the Harry Potter tea cups, also from my sister! I also have my house mug now too. As you can see, the postcard has been moved as the collection has grown. Oh, I also found a copy of the first Harry Potter book (Sorcerer’s Stone) at the library so I actually got it for free as children’s books were free that week! It’s such good conditon too! It’s chilling at the top but I do need to add it to the row. As you can see it’s the only book I own of the series in paperback, and my original is incredibly well loved.
And that’s my shelf! As you can see I don’t have a huge collection but I love it very much and am always collecting more. Writing this post makes me want to reread the series so maybe I’ll try to squeeze them in later this year. I have quite a few books on my TBR though so maybe I should get through those. So let me know, what’s your favorite Harry Potter book?
Thanks for reading!
