The bookshelf project #37

I do my very own happy dance every time I receive a bookshelf photo from an author. This week's pictures are from a wonderful author who's also a member of the book clubRaissa Falgui.

The photo below is just one of the bookshelves Raissa has in her house. I believe this shelf contains mostly books for adults. Raissa, being an author of a young adult novel, has lots of YA books located in another shelf.

I love the rustic feel of the shelf. Well, I'm partial to anything made of wood, so I just love this shelf. Also, the vintage reading chair is lovely. Let me tell you that even without cushions, this chair is very comfortable.

Recently, Raissa wrote an essay about how BookMooch helped rebuild her library. It's a beautifully written essay that is currently a finalist at the United Planet Day contest. Let's vote for her so that she wins! Click here to vote.

Raissa's YA novel is entitled Woman in a Frame. I'm really intrigued about this novel, as it has mystery, art, and Philippine colonial history elements. You can get Woman in a Frame from Flipreads and Amazon.
