Stacking the Shelves – a weekly meme hosted by Reading Reality
what’s the buzz: weekly round-up and book haul
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks since my last STS post. Last weekend was a bit of a write-off when we discovered we would need new flooring in our bedroom. Had to haul all of the furniture (except the bed, TV, and wardrobe) into the living room. We bought new flooring but we cannot get it fitted for another six weeks so we are going to use that time to redecorate the room to get it properly freshened up.
It would probably not have been the first to get done (the kitchen sorely needs it since we got a new boiler fitted) but because of reasons we needed new flooring so it moved to the top of the queue haha! Needless to say, we are living in a complete mess right now and will be counting down until we can get our room back!
Otherwise, life has pretty much been the same as usual. Finished my second playthrough of Final Fantasy XV and enjoyed it every bit as much. It’s such a great game – flawed but full of heart. I just love it so much so it will probably not be long before I play another round…
- Final Fantasy pins from ShayneRyanArt: OMG these are so cute!! I preordered these a few months ago and they arrived this week and I couldn’t be happier with them!
- The Untamed pin from ReypinStore, WangXian keychain from kogiitsu, MXTX Gameboy Cartridge pins from Daisy YHB: I am loving all of my MXTX merch so much!!
- Johnny Silverhand Nendoroid from Gamersheek: I have completed my collection of Cyberpunk 2077 nendos! I am so happy with him – he’s super-cute!
- Book sleeves from Book Besties UK: I am loving these two sleeves though they couldn’t be more different (shows the two sides to my personality quite well haha!)
