Exploring My Bookshelves (#5)

Welcome to Exploring My Bookshelves, an original meme from Addlepates and Book Nerds!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Post a picture of your bookshelf (preferably literal, but e-shelves work too). Here are mine:Bookshelf Meme
  2. I’ll give you something about your shelf to write about. It might be your favourite cover, your favourite author, your book you most recently bought etc
  3. Then give us the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it)
  4. And finally, come back to my post and send us a link! I promise to check out all of your posts!

This week I want to know…

What book on your shelf has the least pages?

I’ve decided not to count picture books, because they’re far too short. Also, they’re all kept in my wardrobe, which you can’t see in the picture 🙂

Mine is Dear Alison by Simon Pollard, with 72 pages. Here’s the blurb:

In 1942 with a notebook and pencil he had bought from a German guard, Dudley Muff started Alison’s Book. Dudley was a prisoner of war in Germany and his niece Alison was four and living in Timaru. With humorous entries, sketches and what he called little men his story grew until it became an account of his time served in two prisoner-of-war camps

This book is absolutely gorgeous. It’s what first introduced me to historical fiction I think. There are so many pretty pictures inside. Like this!

Dear Alison

As usual, send me a link to your bookshelf. Who can beat me this week? Well done to everyone who beat me last week (which was almost all of you!)



I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!
