Feature and Follow Friday #165

Bookshelf Tour. Give us a tour of your bookshelf.

I'm been moving a lot so most of my books are still inside boxes. And because my appartment is small, I'm happy with my personal portable library...
How have I lived before my Kindle!

At home, I've organized my books by theme. 

Kitchen books
The ones that I keep in the shelves under the sink are French cooking books. Some have only recipes of French dishes, other have pictures to teach you point by point until you succeed to cook something edible!

Because, I like to bake pastry, cakes and sweet and beacuse kneading  the dough helps me to relax, I owned a lot a "pâtisserie" books. 
The special cookies with ginger and cinammon for Christmas, my secret chocolate fondant cake or the receipe to make some awesome dark chocolate eclair. Hmmm, Yummi!

The educational books
The ones in the little cubic furniture are guidebooks for the countries I've visited or want to discover. Also tutorial to learn foreign language like Chinese and Japanese. Software books on Indesign, AutoCad, Gimp, Photoshop, etc.

Office Desk

The legs of my home office desk are for my notebooks, dictionnaries, grammar and conjugation books. All the stuff I need, when I write. The other leg is reserved for my art supplies and art books. Too full of crap to show you! Lol!

Fiction and classic works of literature
If you want to relax with a good books, you only have to push the doors of this piece of furniture. It's not my dream library but I don't have enough place to put all my stuff... So, for now, it's the best solution.

There is mix of every genre. Mangas, fantasy stories, YA, parnormal, thrillers, romance, fiction...

And what about you ?

Blog Hop...How does this work?
First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image).

You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! What sets this Hop apart from others, is our Feature. Each week we will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Who is our Feature today?

Find out below. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow our Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee's View Alison Can Read) as a courtesy. How do you follow someone? Well, if you have a preference, state it in your #FF post. A lot of blogs are transitioning to WordPress in which they do not have the luxury of GFC, so an RSS subscription is appreciated or if you choose an email subscription. If you don’t have GFC please state in your post how you would like to be followed.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my FF, and following, Lucie. Unfortunately, we don't have an Ikea here! I could still go to Paris though, or you could fly to South Africa, lol.

    I'm freaking going to look at bookshelves tomorrow. I'm waiting no longer.

    Oh, you got some hot pics below this post! :)

    Happy Friday!

    Followed you back via GFC.

    1. Hi Michelle,
      It's a good idea because there are some really good comics being released lately

  3. I didn't even think to include kitchen books... Love your shelves! I'm a new twitter follower from @dailymayo. Check out my bookshelf at Daily Mayo!

    1. I can not cook my memory it's why I need some help from the books!

  4. I would need the cookbooks that teach you point by point until you have something edible (and even then it's iffy). :-)

    I'm a new follower!
