Currently Reading: Shtum by Jem Lester

Here is a list of what is currently sat on my bookshelf waiting to be read!

I’m trying to read more but I keep buying/receiving new books which is just making my list longer and longer!

I am a nightmare for starting books and reading several at the same time, a habit I’m trying to change!

At the start of half term I attempted to colour coordinate my bookshelf (before and after below), I’m not sure if I’m completely satisfied with it, so if anyone has any tips or a better way of how they organise theirs, I’d love to hear!
