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

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

When it comes to blogging, I’ve done a big ‘ole heap of nothing this week! Seriously, I’m not sure what has been wrong with me – I am so demotivated lately. I think I am sorely needing a wee holiday so luckily I finish up from work for two weeks at the end of next week. It has been a long time coming, that’s for sure! 😉

Outside of my blogging; life has been pretty piss-poor as well if I’m being totally (brutally!) honest. I did manage to get out to the cinema yesterday with my other half. Saw Once Upon a Time in Hollywood which was good but very long. We then decided to go out for a meal (well, pizza at Pizza Hut to be precise!) so it wasn’t a bad day at all. By the time I got home I just couldn’t face doing my weekly book haul post so I’ve left it until today.

I did get quite a bit of bookish merch through the post this week which is always good. The usual mix of art prints, book sleeves, pins and jewellery.

🐸 Book Sleeves from Book Besties UK: these were custom designs and I am so happy with how they turned out!

🐸 Jewellery from One Dotty Duck: I am loving the alcohol ink art on the necklace and earrings set!

🐸 Prints from Redbubble: artists are Lauren Richelieu and Merwild – getting all the Cruel Prince merch while I can!

🐸 Bookmarks from Happy Hello Art: again, picking up as much Cruel Prince merch as I can, but look at the little Steve and Robin from Stranger Things… aren’t they adorable??

Smoke in the Sun by Renée Ahdieh | The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young

I’m always happy to add signed books to my collection so when I saw these beauts up on Forbidden Planet I just knew I had to get them. Plus, also pictured the Cardan pin I got from Happy Hello Art – they also threw in this cute as heck Cardan bookmark! Wasn’t that nice of them? 🙂
