2016 Book Blogger #LoveAThon: Mini-challenge #1: Mix & Match

As I mentioned previously, this is the second year I’ll be participating in the Book Blogger’s Love-A-Thon.  This year, the event is being hosted by Alexa ofAlexa Loves Books, Hazel of Stay Bookish, Mel of The Daily Prophecy and Cee of the The Novel Hermit.  Sign-ups are still open so there’s time if you want to join in (and you should) and the Love-A-Thon takes place from February 20th – 22nd.  It’s the perfect way to meet new book bloggers and make new friends<3

*Don’t forget to check out my #LoveAThon Bookshelf Challenge Video!

**And my Introduction Questionnaire!

The Challenge: We all love books, but there are other things we’re passionate about too! Mash-up a non-bookish hobby/passion/talent/fandom with your bookish life. Do it through photos, art, videos, etc. Get as creative as you’d like!

I’m a lover of all things fairytale related so for this challenge I chose to pair up each book in The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer with some of my favorite Disney collectibles.  I especially love that we’re living in a time where Star Wars counts as part of the Disney family<3

October 6 on 6: Orange

This is the first month I’m taking part in 6 on 6 which was created by Scruffy Little Nerf Herder.  Basically, you’re encouraged to take 6 geek themed photos and post them on the 6th of each month.  Each month is assigned a different color and fittingly enough, October is orange.  I’m kind of shocked to see just how little I own that’s actually orange but I’m really pleased with what I came up with!

  1. Smaug + Fantasy – I love my Smaug Funko! He’s taller than a giant stack of thick fantasy books which is pretty cool IMO.  This photo shows some of my fantasy favorites and one (well, three because it’s a bind up) that I’m really hoping to get to soon, The Sword of Shannara series by Terry Brooks.  The MTV show looks incredible and I really want to read it before it premieres early next year!
  2. Currently Reading – I’m currently reading the 4th and final volume of Matt Fraction and David Aja’s Hawkeye which I was so sad to see come to an end.  I really love Jeff Lemire but I haven’t picked up his reboot just yet.  I’m also really addicted to Ranma 1 / 2 lately! I love that they’re reprinting the original in such a pretty new collection.  The 3rd volume is pictured and I’m pretty in love with the cover.
  3. Pumpkins! – These are from a recent trip to Trader Joe’s to stock up on all of the pumpkiny goodness I could find but I’m going pumpkin and apple picking this coming weekend so looking that them is getting me even more into the spirit of Fall!
  4. Halloween Mickey Jewelry – When I saw this beautiful set from FemmeDeBloom on Etsy, I knew I had to have it.  Disney and Halloween are two of the best things so combined, it makes me so happy.  Plus, it’s really reasonably priced for a set that includes a necklace and earrings.
  5. Compilation of Orange Things – As I mentioned,  I seem to be lacking things in the orange department so I started by grabbing some ginger Funko’s as a starting point, added my PSL #OrangeSleeveSociety cozy that Megan tweeted to me, a pair of pumpkin earrings I got on Etsy some time two years ago and my favorite pumpkin tea plus a pumpkin pie candle from Bath and Body Works.
  6. BB-8 – I preordered my Sphero BB-8 from ThinkGeek on Force Friday but I am still awaiting his arrival to my home so I visited one in the Disney Store in the meantime.  He wasn’t for sale, otherwise I would’ve cancelled my preorder and picked him up on the spot!
