Favourite Collectables on My Bookshelf| Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme, GoodReads group here with all the topics + discussion!
This week’s topic is: Favourite Collectibles on Bookshelf

1) Bookmarks

An essential staple for every reader, a good bookmark! Before Bookstagram/Blogging I used to use any old thing as a bookmark (still do sometimes) and now I like bookmarks for their aesthetic too!


2) Collectible/ Special Edition Books

Who doesn’t love a good collectors/special edition book?! Not only are they exclusive but they’re freaking stunning.  I am obsessed with getting my hands on as many as possible, it is such a bad habit for my bank account. No regrets.


3) Pins

I don’t have many pins but I totally want to start collecting more!
I have seen a few people on Bookstagram with pin flag/banner things(?) and they look so cute hanging on the shelves! That’s the goal for me, I’d love to display mine on my shelves but I’d also love to rock a denim jacket with a few on from time to time.


4) Figures + Funko Pops!

I adore collecting figures and Funko Pops! They’re one of my favourite things to get as gifts, which is where the majority of mine came from. Though I don’t tend to display my Funko Pops on my bookshelf with my books, as I keep them in the boxes, I do stack them on top of my small bookshelf.
I do have my Funko Wobblers out of the box and on display though. (Pictured)


5) Literally anything Star Wars

Above is how my shelves used to look and I loved it. But due to my book hoarcing habit, I had to start putting other books on those shelves too. *sigh*

Also, got this cute little planter for Christmas, which is a recent addition to my bookshelf! (Which I adore)


Comment some things you collect on your bookshelf, I’d love to know!

Monthly Wrap Up | March 2019

wrap-up-2019

Hey Guys!
March has been a pretty decent reading month for me, though mostly stuff for uni. I actually enjoyed the majority of my required reading so that was nice! For personal reading, I again, only listened to audiobooks this month. All of which were great!
Overall, I listened to 3 audiobooks and read 5 physical books/plays.

 


41557218
Firstly, I finished an audiobook; City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab.

 

Rating: 3.5 Stars
Review coming soon!

Next, I finished a play for class; Mrs.Warren’s Profession by George Bernard Shaw.

This wasn’t a bad play! Had an interesting story, one of the best I’ve read for this class so far!

Another audiobook, Cress by Marissa Meyer.  I am seriously loving this series! Finally, my first 5 star read of 2019. I was losing faith in my reading, The Lunar Chronicles is what is keeping me from going into a slump again.

Rating: 5 Stars!
Review here!

 


A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf
Next, another book/essay for class; A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf.

This was an interesting and insightful read. It was quite dense and felt lengthy, considering it’s not long. The lecture I had on it was more interesting though!

And another book, actually play, for class; A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry. I’m glad we have moved on to more recent plays in class, they’re so much easier to read and more enjoyable.

Next, another audiobook, Winter by Marissa Meyer

Rating: 5 Stars
Review coming soon!

Next, I finished another play for class. The Zoo Story by Edward Allbee.

By far one of the weirdest things I’ve ever read! However, it was very interesting.

Lastly, I read The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter. This was also for a class. It was interesting. I wouldn’t say I loved it, it was pretty dark. A lot of unexpected sexual content. I liked the titular story but the rest were just meh. Some were outright ununderstandable.
