Office of Stiefvater

  • Share This Article

This weekend, Lover and I and family of I all threw our backs out moving the rest of our stuff into the new House of Stiefvater. And as my brain is as liquified as my arms, I am going to merely post photos of my new office instead of actual content. The office, of course, is the first place in the house to look like a Real Place, followed by the kitchen, followed by . . . everything else. I have my priorities.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, and oh. On Monday, I think I will be able to show you the trailer I did for The Raven Boys, and ALSO start a contest for several advanced review copies for those of you who cannot come up to NYC and BookExpo to score one. This is exciting and nerve-wracking. Of course, my brain is still somewhat jellified from the move, so the exciting/ wracking-of-nerves is slightly muted as if from far away. More details on all that later. Until then . . .

foreign editions and nonfiction!

Nonfiction & Foreign Editions

much of the fiction! (and some nonfiction overflow)(and my to-be-read shelf near the bottom)(except for the TBR shelf, nothing stays unless there’s a chance of it being re-read)

Β Fiction & TBR

Also, this:

  • I’m now scouring your bookshelves to see which books on there I own / have read… πŸ˜€

  • Looks Fantastic!! Also, eagerly awaiting Raven Boys trailer and ARC contest. Excited for Monday!!

  • Narisha

    I seriously cannot wait to watch your Raven Boys trailer! I’m anxiously waiting for the day the book will come out in Singapore!

  • Your office looks exactly like my dream office would. πŸ™‚ You must be so happy in your new home. And I can’t wait to see the trailer!! All that lovely colored pencil art!! Can’t wait, I am dearly hoping that this year I might win your ARC contest. πŸ™‚ Either way I will be buying the Raven Boys when it comes out so I can have a matching Stiefvater hardcover to go along with all my others of yours.

  • I love your office, Maggie! πŸ™‚ I am interested in the contest, as I would absolutely love to read Raven Boys! πŸ™‚

  • Sigh. Ladders in the library – Happy thought indeed.
    How high are your ceilings? Do the bookshelves go all the way up?
    More sighing.

    My library wants to be like your library when it grows up.

  • Oh how I dream of having my own permanent office/library. I would have floor to ceiling book shelves, a small fireplace and a window looking out onto a cottage garden . Sigh. I love your Room, Enjoy!

    I am so excited for The Raven Boys!!! πŸ˜€ *happy dance*

  • Dani

    I spy The Fault in Ours Stars! If that is part of the to-be-read section, you need to make sure that changes. I suggest soonish.

  • So many Books! I wish I had an office like that. Plus I love all the antiquey looking furniture!

  • Lunabook

    My jaw dropped when i saw those shelves and that window….. It is how I want my writing room/office/library to look! πŸ˜‰ I sincerely hope you enjoy its beauty daily. While I gazed and practically drooled at the awesome possibility of all those books, I started wondering something. On other writers’ websites that I look at, they say how they believe an important thing to do to improve your writing is to read- read often and read everything you can get your hands on. So now I’m curious- what do you think?

  • Yanicke

    Absolutely LOVE the red typewriter!!!!

  • Sherie

    The ladder is truly fantastic. I would so love to have one of those with my book shelves. As it is being vertically challenged, I must balance precariously on random pieces of furniture to reach the upper echelons of my book cases-sigh.

  • Lisa

    Score! Im going to be going down to the States next week, I’d love to win and pass by and pick it up on my way home!

    Love the new Stiefvater house, Your book shelf is amazing. Seems like a library. Haha, imagine that. Stiefvater Public Library. Where do I sign up πŸ˜›

  • Wow amazing! What a dream office!! Trailer? And ARC contest?! That would be quite excellent–can’t wait! The cover looks so great! Excited to read it. πŸ™‚

  • Your bookcases look so… portable. Would you mind sharing where you got them?

    • Restoration Hardware! They are very . . . not portable though. Heavy as snot! . . .

      in which Maggie realizes that snot is not very heavy.

  • PaulinaOdeth Flores BaΓ±uelos

    I’d love to have The Raven Boys in my hands! I’m from Mexico so it takes ages before I can have a book that I want with me! Please tell me the contest will be open to people like me!

    I’m very excited for the trailer!! They are always AMAZING!

    I actually recognized some books from that shelf after spending a few minutes looking at the pictures.Now I’m feeling vaguely stalkerish.:0Not good

    Very jealous of your red typewriter!

    Funny thing :
    In nearly every country “shiver” is called something like that…
    except for Germany, there it’s called “Nach dem Sommer”… ^^
    That’s why I like reading novels in their original language… translation almost always suck… πŸ™‚
