Bookish Items/Merchandise I’d Like to Own

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

Top Ten Tuesday
This week is Top Ten 
Bookish Items/Merchandise I’d Like to Own
I decided that this week I'd get creative and rather specific with my list, and think up all the bookish things I wish existed for me to own.
  • Sky In The Deep hair stick
    A double pronged hair stick with gorgeous Viking-esque carvings at the top. Maybe inlaid with metal to bring out the pattern. OR a hair stick shaped like an axe, the the handle as the prong.
  • Lockwood & Co insulated flask
    For tea, obviously. Need to keep my spirits (ha) up when it's chilly.
  • The Extinction Trials Milo plushie
    TBH I just want to hug Milo, but dinosaurs are kinda big and probably not so huggable, so a plushie will do.
  • Clean Lexi inspired candle
    Yes, it's a candle but ALSO it would  smell rather specifically of champagne and clean linen, with a hint of lavender, and have a little shimmer hidden away in the pure white wax, and a quote on the outside: "We aren't broken. We're just alive."
  • Queens of Geek autograph book
    Vibrant and brightly coloured and quirky, perfect for getting autographs at cons.
  • When the Beat Drops headphones
    A gorgeous pair of over-ear headphones, sound excluding and vibrant, for listening to music.
  • A Court of Thorns & Roses oracle deck
    I think that the characters in this series would translate excellently into an oracle deck, and also they'd be pretty.
  • Children of Blood and Bone Amari inspired tea
    I've kind of already blended up my own, but I'd love an official Amari tea as she is my queen.
  • Forest of a Thousand Lanterns quote bracelet
    Very specifically I'd like my favourite quote on a bracelet: "The beauty of this world is fading all too fast through the cruelty and thoughtlessness of men."
  • Gilded Cage quote blanket
    A big snuggly blanket with glittering gold thread and a quote: “History only appeared inevitable because it was written in a world where it had already happened.” 

    Which super-specific bookish merch do you wish you owned?


    1. I'm living for your Forest of a Thousand Lanterns quote bracelet. I'd totally buy that. I would. And yes to the oracle deck too! Although I might prefer a Throne of Glass one over the ACOTAR-one? Or maybe I'd just get both..

    2. I'd love to have the ACOTAR oracle deck too!😍

    3. That quote blanket looks so snuggly. I talked about a blanket in our post this week, too.

      Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

    4. I think Lila from the book I'm writing would love a Sky in the Deep Hair Stick. She doesn't even know who the Vikings were, but she'd still love it.

    5. Oh my god your ideas are fantastic! I am so in love with the FOTL bracelet idea, that sounds so great and I bet it'd be gorgeous :) and that COBAB tea would be awesome, too :D

    6. I haven't read Gilded Cage but I really like that quote!

    7. I love your ideas! I totally want the Queens of Geek item!!

    8. Oh my. So much yes to the candle, the Milo plush and the Gilded Cage blanket. These all need to be things.

    9. I've not read any of the books you've mentioned here. But I do love some bookish merch!


    10. I would love a bookish blanket. I hope you eventually get all of this stuff!

      Aj @ Read All The Things!

    11. Oh I love this twist on the topic! There really needs to be more Dark Gifts merch in the world - well some at all would be a good start!

    12. I love your take on this prompt. An Underlibrary card would be fun. I would love one of those Hogwarts Express vintage travel posters.

    13. Ooh I love the way you approached the theme, so clever!! That blankets sounds beautiful and I want it so much, even though I've never been interested in the trilogy it's inspired by!
