Bookshelf Shenanigans

Happy Wednesday, bibliophiles!

I should have posted some of this last week, really, but I just wanted to post some pictures here.

I decided last week that I wanted a little change of pace concerning my bookshelf. After consulting a few friends of mine, I ultimately decided to rearrange my books in rainbow order!

Sorry, this photo isn’t as good…the lighting on this side of the room isn’t as bright as the other

I also tried to arrange my Pop! Figures in rainbow order as well! Starting from the top, we have Starfire (Teen Titans Go!), Liz Sherman (Hellboy), Yoda (Star Wars), Beast Boy (TTG!), Abe Sapien (HB), Elisa Esposito (The Shape of Water), Eleven (Stranger Things), Batgirl (DC), Raven (TTG!), The Vision (Avengers), Rey (Star Wars, K-2SO (Star Wars), and Maleficent (Disney). While rearranging everything, I listened to The Bends (Radiohead). It was a lovely way to spend my afternoon. 🙂

Now, fast forward to today. After finishing up online school today, my day got exponentially better upon discovering that Aurora Burning had come in the mail! I preordered it a few months back, and I was counting down the days until its release. So, naturally, I decided to mess around with some Instagram filters and do a photoshoot. I don’t have a bookstagram or anything, but this is the closest I’ll ever get, seeing as I already spend too much time on there, anyway.

And because I find the orange and teal filter oh so satisfying…

I haven’t yet read Aurora Burning (I would have started it, but I had already started Girls in the Moon), but at this point, I think it’s guaranteed that I’ll adore it. We’ll see. But from what I can tell, I’ll have to have my tissues at the ready. Either way, I’ll definitely review it next week! 😉

 

Today’s song:

I’d forgotten about this one until it came on my shuffle this morning. I already loved the other version, but with the underlying cover of “Can’t Help Falling In Love” and the choir towards the last thirds…needless to say, I got goosebumps. I think it might be my favorite song at the moment.

 

That’s it for this random post! Have a wonderful rest of your day, and take care of yourselves!

Posted in Book Review Tuesday

A few updates

Hi, everyone. I thought I’d take the time to notify you of a few things:

 

  1. I’m not going to be able to do a Book Review Tuesday this week. 😦  My afternoon/night is going to be pretty busy, and I won’t have any free time. (Hey, I’m seeing Santigold in concert, though, so that’ll be really fun!) 5o1.gif
  2. I saw Avengers: Endgame last night, and I must say, it was INCREDIBLE! No spoilers, but it’s probably my favorite movie in the MCU now. I definitely want to review it soon, but I probably won’t for another few weeks so I don’t spoil anything for you guys. DON’T 👏 SPOIL👏 THE 👏 ENDGAME 👏 giphy.gif
  3. It’s that time of year again…finals. [cue “The Sounds of Silence”] Mine are in about a month, and I’ll have to study pretty hard for them, so I won’t be able to do as many Book Review Tuesdays this May. But then it’ll be summer again, so at least I’ll have that to look forward to. giphy-1.gif

Just thought that I’d let you know. I probably won’t be as active in the next few weeks, but I’ll probably have some good content in store come summertime.

As always, have a great rest of your day, stay safe, and take care of yourselves! 😉
