The Bookshelf Q&A Tag

We found The Bookshelf Q&A Tag recently and knew we wanted to participate. It’s a fun book tag and it was a fun chance to go through our shelves.

We’re not going to tag anyone. We highly encourage people who want to participate to give it a try. Let us know if you decide to so that we can read your answers.

This blog post is all about The Bookshelf Q&A Tag.


Mention the creator, Hannah’s Bookshelf.

Answer the questions below and tag a few people to do it too.

What’s the oldest book on your shelves?

The Secret History by Donna Tartt was published in 1992 and is the oldest book currently on our shelves. The Secret History has become popular again in recent years for it’s contribution to the dark academia genre. We highly recommend it for mystery fans. We enjoyed the college setting and the plot, which follows a group of classics students.

What’s a book that you would never get rid of?

Every Day by David Levithan is one of our favorite book of all time. Another reason our copy of Every Day is so special is because it’s signed by the author, David Levithan. It’s a powerful book that we couldn’t get out of our heads after reading it for the first time. This book is always going to have a special place on our shelves.

Which book has been on your TBR for the longest?

My Contrary Mary by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows has been on our TBR for a while now. We enjoyed My Lady Jane and My Plain Jane from the same group of authors, so we’re excited to read about Mary Queen of Scots. Hopefully we’re going to read this book soon. If you’ve read it, let us know your thoughts in the comments.

What’s the newest addition to your shelves?

We recently read Queen Bee by Amalie Howard with our book club. It’s a great historical book set in England during the 1800s. Think of it as a mix between Bridgerton and The Count of Monte Cristo. Check out our full book review to learn more about Queen Bee.

What’s one book/edition that you desperately want for your shelves?

The Brothers Hawthorne by Jennifer Lynn Barnes releases this year and it’s a book we need to add to our collection. It’s one of our most anticipated books of 2023 and we want to read it right away. We really enjoyed getting to know Jameson Hawthorne and Grayson Hawthorne and can’t wait to see them as the main characters.

Is there a book you own several copies of?

We have more than one copy of City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. One of them is a collector’s edition signed by Cassandra Clare and the other is a paperback copy. It’s one of our favorite books and series of all time. It’s also a book that we can go back to again and again.

What’s the longest series on your shelves?

The Shadowhunter Chronicles takes up the most space on our bookshelves. There are currently 21 books out and more to come. To learn more about all of the books in the Shadowhunter universe, check out our post The Complete Guide to the Shadowhunter Chronicles.

How do you organize your bookshelves?

There’s no organization method for our bookshelves. We do tend to group series together, but besides that, we don’t have a system. Some books are next to books within the same genre, but it’s not organized enough to call it a method for grouping books.

Do you have any space for new books on your shelves?

We have some space, but not a lot. Eventually, we’re going to need to get more bookshelves. The dream is to have a full home library one day.

Do you decorate your bookshelves with anything?

We have some knickknacks and pictures on our bookshelves. We don’t really decorate based on the books on the shelves. It’s more of a way to display some pretty things that we think like nice.

Show us a picture of your shelves!

We’re going to skip this question for now. If you want to see some shelfie pictures, follow us on Instagram.
