It’s time to have a nose around another book bloggers bookshelves, and I’m thrilled to welcome Yvonne who blogs over at https://vonnibee.com/ to What’s on your bookshelf? If you haven’t checked out Yvonne’s blog, it’s a must. Read on to learn more about Yvonne and her books..
How many bookcases do you have?
I have ermm… 12 bookcases and I am very lucky to have a spare room where they are fully stacked, as is the floor just in front of them, and on top of them and beside them and… yes still need more bookcases 😂😂
Approximately how many books are on your book case?
It ranges from 60 to 100 ish as some of the cases are deeper and so the books are double stacked. I hate this because it means I can’t see them all 😣
What genre does your bookcase mainly comprise of?
I am a bit of a genre butterfly so I flit from genre to genre. But I do have more Classic books and Crime/thrillers than other genres.
Which book on your bookcase are you desperate to read?
Oh! this is a toughie, there are several that I have had for a while but there is one that I have not yet had the heart to read. It is the final book in the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett just before he died in 2015, I just cannot still bring myself to read his last book for the very first time and I am also desperate to read it!
Which book has been sat on your bookcase the longest and you haven’t yet got around to reading?
There are quite a few that have been on my bookcases for a few years The Girl with a Pearl Earring another is Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. But I know there are probably some that have been sat there longer.
Which books are you desperate to add to your bookcase over the next few months?
Pan’s Labyrinth by Guillermo del Toro, Cornelia Funke (Hardcover). The Chain by Adrian McKinty. All the Ray Celestin books. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. I know these are already published books, but I dare not even look at those that have yet to be released!
If you could only keep one book from your bookcase, which one would you choose?
And why? I have a copy of The Wombles by Elizabeth Beresford. It is a book that was a Christmas present from my Nanna and Grandad in 1979.
Last question if you could have one author come to your house to borrow a book who would it be and why?
OMG, what a question!!!!!
So the author would be Agatha Christie and I would lend her the book that was my top read of last year, The Craftsman by Sharon Bolton. I would love to know what she thinks of today’s crime books.
I am Yvonne and I run Me And My Books, I started this in 2017 when I discovered a thing called Book Blogging. I never knew there was such a thing. Since then my reading rate has increased so much, I always thought of myself as being a good reader but now my reading rate has quadrupled. I love to be able to share my thoughts on books and also discover new authors.
