Sooo….if you follow me on social media then you probably know what I’m talking about. If you do not follow me on social media…I finally got new bookshelves!! It has been a year since I’ve seen all my books on a shelf together. I packed my books up a year ago thinking we were moving and it didn’t happen. I got rid of my old bookshelves at that point too, because I knew I wanted new ones and there was no point in moving them with us. When we ended up not moving, I just never unpacked them because I had nowhere for them. We also knew that we would be eventually moving just not at that moment.
As you guys already know, we did finally move. We’ve been at the new house for two months now and this weekend I FINALLY got my new bookshelves. I am so stoked about having them. I spent all Saturday night (8pm-1am) unpacking my books and putting them on my shelves. On Sunday we went back to Ikea and got one more (a corner one) to finish. I spent the rest of the day/afternoon finishing putting all my books and stuff on them. It took me FOREVER because I wanted it just right. So want to see a picture?
I am REALLY happy with the way that it all turned out. The only thing that will probably change is moving/swapping books around to different spots on the shelves. The majority of them I just put up there to get them off the floor. So they aren’t in any particular order or anything like that besides authors being together and series being together. The far left shelf (with my A W books on top) are all paperbacks & ARCs at the bottom of that shelf. The middle skinny shelf is some Funko Pops, some ARCs for this year, and miscellaneous paperbacks on the bottom two spots. The two bookshelves on the right of that smaller one are hardcover books. The last one has my Harry Potter books up top, a bunch of empty space (I NEED NEW BOOKS NOW :P) Some Funko Pops that I couldn’t fit on the top of my shelves and then the last spot being some miscellaneous books.
Throughout the day on Saturday & Sunday I was updating both of my Instagram accounts (heyyitsashley (personal) & foreverbookish_ (bookstagram) with the process of setting them up. I am so stoked that it’s finally done and I finally have my shelves. It looks really great in the room. I’m guilty of staring at them all day and at random times in the day coming into the room just to “check” on them HAHA. This room is also my office for work, so that’s cool haha. 😛
Anyway, I just wanted to do a little update about my new bookshelves since I am so happy about them. This last week has been pretty hard for me with the reading. I have so many books checked out from the library (UGH – I’m going to try to stay away from the library the next few months) and I’ve been trying to read them ASAP, but I’m now currently in the middle of three of them and I just can’t seem to get myself to read them because I don’t know which one to read first so I try to read them all and get overwhelmed/guilty for not reading others. WTF. It’s annoying, so I’ve just been in a reading slump this week. BUT I did just get the Daisy Jones & the Six audiobook from my library, so I am listening to that now while I work. I loved the book so much, so I had to check out the audiobook too.
I have to start my work day now, but I will hopefully catch up with your posts soon and reply to comments. I hope you had a great Easter or weekend if you don’t celebrate. 😀

Thanks! 🙂 I’m so happy to finally have them.
YAY!!👏🏻 Ashley, I think it looks beautiful in the way you organized everything. I really love how it looks 😍😍
Thank you! 🙂 ❤
They looks so great. I love white bookshelves!
Thanks! I’m so glad I decided on white. I was also considering black, but really happy I chose white.
The shelves look great! Good luck with steering clear of the library. I never seem to be able to resist a book or two (or three) when I visit my local library. 😊
Thanks! 🙂 I usually get e-books from my library, so the library is at my fingertips 24/7. That makes it so much harder to stay clear of it haha.
I’m the same, so easy to find a lot of books in the e – library you’ve never heard of, but now definitely want to read!
This looks amazing! I love the look of white bookshelves and all the pop figures you have on there too. I’d love to have something like this in my home one day!
Thank you! Hopefully one day you can have the same. 🙂
I love the way the shelves curve! Looks great.
Thank you 🙂
I LOVE it. I loved seeing your pictures on Instagram – I was excited for you!!! It looks great!!
Thank you 🙂 I am so happy to finally have them.
Ah!! The shelves are so beautiful! I love them so much! I also adore all the POP figures! Consider me, absolutely obsessed with these shelves 😉
Thank you! 😀 I am so happy that I was finally able to get them. ❤
Congratulations. The bookcases look lovely and inviting.Enjoy!
Thank you 🙂
Looks amazing! What a treat to have so much space and that looks attractive too. 🙂
Congratulations on the move! The bookshelves look so, so good (like I’m legit jealous lol) and Oh MY GOD THOSE FUNKO POPS ✨🖤😭
Thank you! 🙂 ❤ I had no idea what I was going to do with my Funko Pops at first, but I'm happy how it turned out with them haha.
Congrats on the new book shelves! They look great! I love the white in contrast to all the spines.
Thank you! 🙂 I am so happy that I decided to go with white.
Love those bookshelves, they are the abolsute dream
Thank you! 🙂
Yay for bookshelves!! So exciting- and if I can think of anyone that needs bookshelves it’s definitely you 🙂 They look AWESOME. Seriously bookshelf goals! Happy for you!!
Thank you, Mackenzie! 😀 I am so happy that I finally have them. I am also happy that I ended up with a TON of extra space for more books. 😛

Oh my gosh, those bookshelves are so pretty!! They look amazing! I especially love that you chose a corner shelf in addition to the rest. It really pulls it all together!
Thank you 🙂 I am so happy that I got the smaller shelf to fit in the corner. I wasn’t really sure how it was going to fit at first. I wanted all four to fit on one wall, but I didn’t have as much space so I decided to go by the smaller one for the corner and that was totally the right decision haha. 🙂
Yes definitely! The corner shelf totally pulls it together, it even almost makes the shelves look like built-ins! ❤
These look fantastic! New bookshelves are always such a delight. I hope you enjoy Daisy Jones. Hearing so many good things about that one.
Thank you! I am so happy that I was finally able to get new bookshelves. I loved the audiobook of Daisy Jones. I read it last month too, but the audiobook was just as great since it has a full cast and they do such an amazing job. 🙂
I saw your progress on Instagram but I’m saying it again: those shelves are gorgeous! I love how everything looks together. The corner shelf is so cute! I SO miss having IKEA around to buy furniture…
Thank you :)! This was the first time I ever been to Ikea and I am dying to go back to really look around. From the quick glances, I seen so many things I wanted haha.
I LOVED going to Ikea when I was still living in Europe! They have so many great things and considerably cheap too. 😉
I love your new bookshelves! My biggest dream is to have a similar layout, though I’ll probably have just as much empty space, hahah. But ALL THOSE FUNKO! I only owe a couple of Funkos for my two favorite Black Panther characters and I have several others on my Amazon wishlist. They’re quite expensive where I live, but I’d love to buy more if I travel internationally again soon. I am surprised you keep most of them in boxes, though! I had to get rid of my boxes because they wouldn’t fit in my suitcase. If you ever make a post sharing your Funko collection, I’d absolutely love that!
Thank you! I hope one day you can similar shelves as mine! It sucks that Funkos are a lot cheaper where you live. There are still so many that I want, but just haven’t really been buying many lately. I started opening my Funkos when I first started collecting them, but then for some reason I just stopped opening them. I don’t even know why haha. I love the Funko collection post idea! I’ll have to write that down so I can make a post really soon about it. 😀
