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

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

I hit two milestones this week – my 1000th post on this blog and finally finishing tidying up my older posts, fixing broken links and sorting out the formatting. It’s been a job years in the making!

When I switched over to self-hosting (way back in January 2015!) a lot of my older posts that were transferred over from my old wordpress blog did not fully transfer over correctly (I should have paid for the transfer itself but instead attempted to do it myself – never again!!) A lot of them were missing cover images, the layout of the posts were wrong, and the formatting was all wonky. It really irritated me and I knew I couldn’t live with it so I had to do something about it (and I also knew I had my work cut out for me – there were a lot of posts!)

I also went back and fixed up my posts from 2015 onward as I wasn’t all that genned up on SEO etc. back then so these posts also needed rework. It’s been a slog but well-worth it in the end. Of course, now I’m done I hardly know what to do with myself haha!

I also got some merch this week (although to be fair, when do I not?) 😉


  • The Untamed buttons from Amazon marketplace, book sleeve from Book Chic Boutique: I am the biggest Lord of the Rings fan so I just couldn’t resist this stunning book sleeve!
  • WangXian, The Iron Bull, and Reyes Vidal pins from Sartizan: Three of my favourite fandoms (The Untamed, Dragon Age and Mass Effect) so I couldn’t resist these beauties!
