Stacking the Shelves – a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews & Reading Reality

what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul

I really didn’t mean to take an almost month-long hiatus from my blog but sometimes life just gets in the way. If I’m being totally honest though, I’ve developed an addiction to watching The Untamed and at 50 episodes, it definitely is something you need to commit to! I’ve already watched it once and I’m currently on my second re-watch. It’s so good (like, probably one of the best things I’ve ever watched) and I’m so glad that Netflix picked it up for us international viewers!

I just can’t get enough of Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji (all the characters really but especially those two) and their relationship is just so sweet and pure. The show-makers have done a great job of getting round Chinese censorship to depict their connection (lots of longing looks and subtext – which actually makes it the ultimate slow-burn and just that much more satisfying). I’m definitely a fan!! Seriously, if you haven’t watched it yet you are really missing out… it’s amazingly brilliant and it’s pretty much taken over my life (in a good way!)

I was hoping to catch up with things last weekend but I ended up spending all of the weekend clearing up and sorting out my ‘library’ aka my spare room which houses all of my books! Took ages but it’s finally starting to shape up a bit more.

room 1
Before and After

It’s still a work in progress but at least my books are no longer piled up on the floor! I’m seriously running out of space though…

room 2
Before and After

It’s not just my books either – I’ve got way too many Funko Pops, Funko Rock Candy’s and various other collectibles to try and find room for.

Before and After

The struggle is real folks. Think I need to buy a new house just to house my books and merchandise haha (I actually wish I was joking!)

Of course, that really hasn’t stopped me buying more books and more merch – I think I have a hoarding problem, for real…

Book Sleeves from Book Besties UK, Pin from Illumicrate Pin Club with design by Fable and Black: I am always a sucker for anything Disney and Star Wars so I just had to have these book sleeves!

Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian Nendoroids from Korekuta and Collector’s Den UK: Since I have become a super-fan of The Untamed I just had to track down these Nendoroids (wasn’t the easiest task since the pre-order actually went up ages ago and they were sold out practically everywhere even though they were only due out in November).

Book Sleeves from Book Besties UK, Pre-order goodies for The Queen of Nothing from Hot Key Books, Print from Owlcrate (purchased via Facebook B/S/T), Carry On and Wayward Son buttons (purchased via Facebook B/S/T): Some more stunning book sleeves and I can never resist swag for the Folk of the Air series and anything to do with Simon Snow (and Baz! Cannot ever forget Baz!)

Book Sleeves from Dancing Words Studio and Book Besties UK: Big surprise – more book sleeves haha! I really do have an addiction but I can’t seem to bring myself to care. 😉

Warner Tapestry from Moonlight Crate (bought via Facebook B/S/T): I was gutted to miss out on this tapestry so was over-joyed to find a seller willing to part with it on Facebook. Isn’t it lush?

Book Sleeves from Book Besties UK, Prints from Noverantale, Pin from Illumicrate Pin Club with design by Fable and BlackYet more book sleeves (I just cannot resist the pretties) and some gorgeous prints from one of my all-time favourite artists. I also adore the pin I got in November’s pin club package.
