Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week, she posts an idea relating to books and encourages other book bloggers to respond with their own top ten lists.
This week’s topic is “top ten bookish things (not books) that you would love to own.” This list was surprisingly easy to compile, since I had all of these things bookmarked so that I could send them to anyone inquiring about what they should get me for my birthday/Christmas.
1. The Little Prince shirt (or any shirt from Out of Print Clothing)
I just think this shirt is so cute. And it’d be ample motivation for me to finally read the book, since it’s been on my to-read list forever.
2. Time-Turner Necklace
This is absolutely gorgeous. As a huge fan of Harry Potter, and Hermione in particular, and as someone who never seems to have enough time in their day, I think this would suit me perfectly. (Found on Etsy)
3. Marauder’s Map Mug
I just love how this heat-sensitive mug changes to say “I solemnly swear I am up to no good,” and even includes the footsteps seen on the Map.
4. Bookish Phone Cases
I recently upgraded to an iPhone, so I’m slightly obsessed with finding the perfect phone case, and The Sorcerer’s Phone‘s Etsy shop has so many nice, handmade ones. Harry Potter, Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars, The Hunger Games… I just really want all of them.
5. Book Necklaces
I think these miniature book necklaces are such a cute idea. What better way to show off your favourite books? (Found on Etsy)
6. Thror’s Map from The Hobbit
Although I have next-to-no wall space left in my bedroom, I would love to have this hanging up in my house somewhere. (Found on Etsy)
7. Little Free Library
I would love to start one of these, eventually. It’s such a nice idea: sharing books with the world, and having them share their favourites in return.
8. Dictionary Quote TOMS
I love this pattern. And, from what I’ve heard, the dictionary definitions that are included are inspiring and meaningful words – not just any random ones.
9. Bookish Throw Pillows
Throw pillows are, quite possibly, some of my favourite things. My small bed has six of them on it. My couch is unfortunately deprived of throw pillows, so these bookish ones would find a good home there.
10. Belle’s Library from Beauty and the Beast
I know this isn’t something that I can just go out and buy, but I would absolutely love to have my own library, complete with winding staircases and moving stepladders.
What bookish things are on your wishlist? Leave me a list or a link to your list in the comments below.
I love the time turner necklace and miniature book necklaces
Check Out My Top Ten Tuesday
There are so many really neat miniature book necklaces and bracelets; I spent far too much time looking at them. thanks for the link! 🙂
I am quite amused with the HP throw pillows — I can’t help but smile when I look at them…
joey via. thoughts and afterthoughts
They kind of made my day when I found them.
Ah! Now I remember what it reminded me of: Potter Puppet Pals! Now that’s a nostalgia bomb…
Great list! I really wanted to put Belle’s library on my list as well! That is the perfect library to me and I want that in my house. I have a time turner key ring from the HP Tour, but I am hoping to get the necklace this time when I go. I want those HP pillows. they are amazing. Here’s my TTT.
I feel like it’s the perfect library for bookworms like us. How was the HP Tour? I’ve heard so many good things about it. Thanks for the link!
I’d love to have Belle’s library too, and those Harry Potter cushions are brilliant! Great list 🙂
It would be so nice to have a huge library – partially because it looks lovely, but mostly because of all the books. 🙂
I’m obsessed with almost everything on your list, lol. I especially love the Time-Turner necklace and the Marauder’s Map mug ^.^
I think this list is going to be the reason I have no money left, haha. Those two are definitely near the top of my wishlist. 🙂
I love the Little Free Libraries. It would be cool to start one–or to have one within walking distance.
I’ve only seen a few pictures of them on Tumblr, but it would be so nice if they started showing up everywhere.
I was in Decatur, GA–and found two in random walks around. When I looked them up on the website I found they have 5. So jealous…
I am in love with those Toms!! And the fact that they include meaningful words makes them even better. Great list!
I’m so glad they didn’t just include random pages – the fact that they used “love” and “discover” make them that much more special.
I love the Dictionary TOMS. Awesome!
They’re so cute! I just wish they weren’t white – I feel like they’d get dirty so quickly.
