That Library scene from Beauty & the Beast and My Own Library


If you’re anything like me, the scene from Beauty and the Beast (where Belle is shown the castle library) was one of the most beautiful moments in your childhood.  The idea of that many books gathered in one place made my heart sing.  It actually went on to be the inspiration of a scene in the second book of the Seer duology.

While I do not have quite that many books, I do have a fair few.  See below for a list of SOME of the books in my library I have read (along with some TBRs):
