Stacking the Shelves – a weekly meme hosted by Reading Reality
what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul
I have felt very unmotivated the last couple of weeks which you can probably tell by my lack of posts. I’m not sure if I’ve falling out of love with blogging or if it is just simply a blogger burnout. I’m hoping it’s the latter (I think it is more likely) but in all honesty it’s a bit soul-destroying not feeling like you can come up with anything new to talk about.
I’m hoping it will get better – I’ve got a couple of weeks off work to recharge my batteries coming up so fingers (and toes!) crossed it will re-ignite my motivation.
- Disney-themed book sleeves from Book Besties UK: I am always a sucker for anything Disney so these sleeves were a must! I love them…
- Hualian and BingQiu pins from Epiphany Art Studio, TGCF Spinning Masks and MXTX Mini Pins from Kwaaru, WangXian pins from eBay and AliExpress: I cannot resist MXTX merch!
- Final Fantasy XV pins and prints from Leoren Arts: I’ve been eyeing these and couldn’t resist getting them with my birthday money! Worth every penny… 😉
- Shakarian (Mass Effect) and Thanzag (Hades) acrylic keychains from Sheisketch and Dragon Age: Origins Companions pin from Haunt Your House: These keychains are stunning! I’m also super-excited about the DA pin – there’s not enough DA:O merch IMHO…
- Cyberpunk 2077 ‘V’ Nendoroids from Gamersheek: This game gets a lot of flack but I actually kinda loved it? These figures are awesome!
- Mystery boxes from In Pages Shop: I couldn’t resist these – I got a LotR themed box and a regular one and I’m so happy with what I got!!
- Mass Effect pins from Sartizan: I completed my collection of Mass Effect pins! (EDI was also received but she went on a walkabout when this photo was taken – she has now been found safe and sound lol!)
- Word of Honor pin set from Billacookie: I haven’t even seen this drama yet but these pins were so cute I just couldn’t resist!!
- WangXian pin set (plus free Jiang Cheng button) from AliExpress: These pins are gorgeous – the photo really doesn’t do them justice…
