Top Ten Bookish Things (That Aren't Books) That I'd Like To Own

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
I LOOOOOVE bookish accessories, so much so that I was completely incapable of sticking to anywhere near ten. While the number one thing I need is BOOKSHELVES (I don't currently have any and instead have a very precious wall of three foot high stacks, and it's getting a bit desperate), here's a handful of the bookish things I'd dearly love to own.

Marauder's Map print: My walls desperately require this.

"I solemnly swear that I am up to no good" mug: I mean, it's true every day.

"Espresso Patronum" print: Quote possibly my most favorite item in history.

Time Turner necklace: If only it actually worked, right?

"Don't let the Muggles get you down" mug: Ron Weasley gives good life advice.

Ravenclaw Sorting Hat print: They've got them for every House, but I'm Ravenclaw, so this is the one I require.

Mr. Darcy ring: A fitting tribute to my love.

Darcy proposal mug: If I drink coffee out of this, it will almsot be like Darcy's actually proposing to me. (Apparently this exact model isn't available any longer, but I linked to a similiar one.)

Persuasion scarf of Wentworth's letter: One of my favorite moments in Persuasion (and arguably the most passionate piece of prose Austen has ever written) is Captain Wentworth's letter to Anne. And I want it on my body please.

Emma clutch by Kate Spade: I don't believe this is available any longer, which is a relief, because it was bound to be too expensive for reason. *covets*

Pride and Prejudice phone case: Why yes, I need this. I need this terribly.

Jane Austen band aids: Getting injured was never more of a treat.

Pride and Prejudice writing gloves: MY HANDS GET COLD, OKAY. It's totally reasonable to need writing mittens in Los Angeles. Practically a frozen tundra, Los Angeles is.

"May the odds be ever in your favor" print: I'm getting my own place in the coming months, and, I promise you, the walls will be covered in bookish prints. Possibly even the windows.

"Real or not real" bracelet: Is it normal for a bracelet to make you cry?

"I don't care if he's a fictional character..." pendant: I should probably get this tattooed on me somewhere as well. I want to buy EVERYTHING from this shop, particularly the "Turn to page 394" and "Their They're There" and pendants.

"Real" arrow Katniss pendant: Simple and beautiful and brb sobbing

The Darkling "Make me your villain" bookmark: OMG EVERYTHING THAT HEBEL DESIGN DOES. Particularly their jewelry inspired by Leigh Bardugo's Grisha series. I would spend all my monies here. All of them.

"Wise girl" ring: Annabeth is my homegirl, and I so want a ring that represents my favorite daughter of Athena.

A Tale of Two Cities clutch by Kate Spade: JUST TAKE ALL MY MONIES, KATE SPADE.

Book dress: Sadly, I don't think this is available anymore, but WANTS. I will hunt down any other book dress I can find.

Dictionary quote Toms shoes: My feet will be so well educated

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland tote: Bookish tote bags are the best tote bags.

Book tights: These are one hundred percent a life necessity.

iPhone book cover: Oh, if only I had an iPhone...

MacBookBook case: brb buying


"I'm fueled by coffee and literary rage" tote: LOOK! Someone made a tote about me!

Across the tub caddy: NEEEED. Do you even understand how completely this would change my life? IT EVEN HAS A WINE GLASS HOLDER. OMG.

Book pillows: They're so cute and pillowy! These would make a pretty good craft project, actually.

I have the now desperate urge to go shopping. I just need them. All of them. GIMME.

  21. I have the P&P infinity scarf and get lots of compliments, it is a cool conversation starter and test to see if someone is a book nerd. :) I always thought that a bath rack for your book was cool, but I don't really take baths. Maybe it would change if I could read books while doing it!

  22. I love that Ravenclaw poster and the Annabeth ring.

  23. I actually have a mug from the same person who did the Darcy proposal, but it's got the quote "You cannot be more than twenty, I am sure...therefore you need not conceal your age" - my mom got it for my twentieth birthday (obviously) because she is THE BEST. And oh my god alskdjfa;lskdfj BATH BOOK CADDY THINGIE!!!! I need it. I need it so much I might die if I don't go buy it. Like right now.
