'What's on Your Desk Wednesday?', err... Thursday

Jo tagged me in a weekly meme called 'What's on Your Desk?' Wednesday. I'm late posting this, so mine's kind of a WOYD? Thursday.

Rules from What's on your desk Wednesday? is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Sassy Brit of Check my blog out each Wednesday for the post titled What's on your desk Wednesday?

Here's what you do: Grab a camera and take a photo of your desk! Or anywhere you stack your books/TBR pile. And no tidying! Add this photo to your blog. Tag at least 5 people! Come back here and leave a link back to your photo in the comments section.


So... here's my desk (click images to make them bigger). It's basically just crammed full of books, Twilight stuff and complete and utter rubbish. I'm so glad it has shelf type things underneath. As you can see, I'm kind of running out of room for my books. I think I need some more storage boxes! The books piled up are all ones I've bought, most of which I'm still yet to read. My books for review are on another shelf, nice and separate (yes, i'm an organised person really). My actual bedroom is even worse than this, and is like a shrine to Buffy and Twilight. I've had to move into a new room because it's so full... maybe one day I'll post some pictures on here.

Five bookish things on my desk:

* Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine
* My Dating Disasters Diary by Liz Rettig
* The Demon's Lexicon bookmarks
* Genesis by Bernard Beckett
* The Mortal Instruments poster

Five non-book things on my desk:

* TV & Satellite Week magazine (Dollhouse issue, it's on top of some books with the CoG poster)
* iPod docking station
* UK Twilight DVD x 3
* Money: 35 English pence to be exact
* A fake severed finger that my friend sent me from last year's Comic-Con. It's great for scaring the parents!

Five people I'm tagging (but you don't have to do it):

* So Many Books, So Little Time
* Persnickety Snark
* Steph Su Reads
* Bites
* Carrie's YA Bookshelf

I love this idea! Your desk looks kind of awesome (:

cupcakewitch said...

This is such a cute idea! Look at all those books! Whew!

Kate said...

I love your pictures! You are really quite organised.

And I love the 35 pence and fake severed finger :)

Kate said...

Is there a poster at the back that says Fire and Ice?

Kate said...

One more question (I promise this is the last on this page):
Do you have three Twilight DVDs?

prophecygirl said...

Kate - yes I made that Fire and Ice poster, as it's my favourite poem :)

And no, I don't have 3 Twilight DVDs. I have 6. ;)

Jo said...

Wow. Just... wow. That is one hell of a TBR pile! Seriously, that's huge! This is such a great meme, I love it!

Charley said...

I love seeing pictures of desks. Yours is so lovely and organized. There's a book called The Writer's Desk by Jill Krementz, which is photos of all kinds of writers - E.B. White (his pic is my favorite), Kurt Vonnegut, etc - at their desks with a little blurb by each of them. It's a fun one to look through.

Chicklish said...

Great pictures! Ahem, I'm so glad you didn't tag me. I can barely find my computer keyboard under all these books. ;)

I love your answer to Kate's Twilight DVD question! :)

Steph Su said...

Holy cow! I want to have your desk! :D

I will do a version of this post when I get my Internet up and running... still stealing it from the public library..

Thao said...

Awesome! I love your desk. Now I can see how crazy you are for Twilight.

Carrie said...

Love the picks and those stacks of books. I'll probably post mine tomorrow sometime. It should be shocking, because we're reorganizing my room and my books are a mess.

So Many Books, So Little Time said...

Wow! I think you could actually start up your own book shop from your desk.

I won't be doing this as I don't actually have a desk; just a bedroom floor where I chuck all my stuff!

Carrie said...

Hey Jenny, I finally got around to posting my picks. You can see them here:

Sassy Brit said...

Thanks for joining in! Looks like you had fun. :) What an interesting selection - I love it, I am just sooo nosy! Apologies for the late reply, I'm not sure what happened. Too many books, perhaps? LOL

May I add your pic to my What's on Your Desk Wednesday, Flikr set, please? :)

Take care,

I love your stack and how neat is your desk... I am totally mess and only Sassy says my desk is "well loved"

Lovely that you took part..
