Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s topic is:
Bookish Merchandise I’d Love to Own
I feel like I have a never-ending list of bookish merch I’d love to own. Every time I go on Instagram I see art prints that make me salivate and book jackets that I NEED!!! I love to collect bookish merch – anything from prints to pins, bookmarks, totes, and more. Here are some things that are on my wish list:
1. A Court of Mist and Fury Pop Socket
I adore A Court of Mist and Fury and have been eyeing this for a while. I think it’s one of the most recognized lines from the series, and it is such a lovely scene in the book. As soon as I need a new pop socket, I’m buying this one.
2. Funny Socks
Funny socks are… well, fun! I think these sum up how I feel when I’m interrupted during an especially good book. lol
3. Personalized Embosser
I love the idea of having a personalized embosser! I had a personalized stamp years ago and used it for the books in my classroom library. It was a good way to remind students who they borrowed the book from. However, if I still taught, I would totally get an embosser. So cool!
I am a firm believer that you can never have enough bookmarks, and this is such a great quote. The only thing I would want is the author’s name on the bookmark too. This line is from Lisa Kleypas’s book A Wallflower Christmas.
5. Or Maybe This Bookmark!
I mean, it’s so cute!! I’m adding this one to my wish lust. I need a little Nessie in my book!! It’s so cute.
6. Book Light
I read in bed a lot, and often my husband is asleep next to me, so I don’t like to keep the light on. A clip-on book light is the perfect solution. I could stay up as late as I want reading and wouldn’t worry about disturbing the hubs.
7. The Force is Strong With This Bookend!
This bookend ties together two of my favorite things – collecting books and Star Wars! I think this would look so cool, like Yoda is using the force to hold up all of my amazing books. Fun!
8. Sticky Notes
I like to mark up my books when reading, but often I use sticky notes instead of writing in the book. It makes it much easier to flip back and find what I’m looking for, especially since I usually color code my notes.
This set comes with a variety of sizes and types of sticky notes, which I love!
9. Book Themed Tote Bag
I love tote bags, and these book themed totes are fabulous! They have a bunch of different classics to choose from, including Romeo & Juliet, 1984, Little Women, Wuthering Heights, Gatsby, and more! My personal favorite is Pride and Prejudice.
10. Sarah J. Maas Bag
This cute cosmetic bag has symbols from Sarah J., Maas’s three series – A Court of Thorns and Roses, Throne of Glass, and Crescent City. Since I’m low-key obsessed with all of them, this seems like the perfect bag for me!
And there you have it – 10 bookish items I would love to own. Do any of these appeal to you? Which bookish merch do you want? Comment below!
