Top Ten Tuesday - Top 10 Bookish Things I'd Like to Own

'Top Ten Tuesday' is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Lately I've seen some other book bloggers being quite enthusiastic about this weekly meme, so I decided to join in with the fun and try it out myself as well!
Top Ten Bookish Things That I'd Like to Own
I love this week's top 10 for the Top Ten Tuesday feature! Obviously, I love love love books and I'm always on the look-out for nice bookish things to add to my collection! Today I'm excited to share some of the things on my wish-list with all of you; if you know any other bookish things you think I might like, be sure to leave a comment or get in touch through Twitter! :)  

1. Once Upon a Time Bookends

I love bookends; they come in all kinds of fun shapes and sizes and I have some great ones at home. I found these lovely 'Once upon a time' bookends on the Internet a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love with them!

2. Bookshelf Skirt

Unfortunately, this pretty bookshelf skirt by Garnet Hill is no longer available; I love it and think it's incredibly cute. I love all kinds of clothing with books on them, but this skirt is definitely one of the prettiest book-related clothing items I've ever seen!

3. Book Sketch Tote Bag

I own way too many tote bags, but I personally think they're just really handy and there are so many of these bags with a cute pattern or nice print on them. This one designed by Megan Claire is perfect for bookworms; I love how simple it is and the quote on it is great as well.

4. Framed Poster with Book Quote

I love decorating my apartment with all kinds of things that show what I love or enjoy doing. I already have a poster of Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice', because it's one of my all-time favourite novels, but I've been on the look-out for something else, something about books in general. I really like this framed poster by Bookishly with a great quote about reading; love it!

5. Library/Books Quilt

Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved quilts. They're very comfortable, obviously, but I love the patterns and how pretty they can be. I currently have a quilt which I got from my parents, and I love it, but I'd definitely like to have a quilt that features books in a particular way, like the one on this picture.

6. 'Pride and Prejudice' Ipad/Kindle Cover

For my birthday last year I received an amazing present which I immediately fell in love with: a 'Pride & Prejudice' cover for my Ipad (picture on the left). I love how the cover makes the Ipad look like an actual book, and the fact that it features one of my favourite novels makes it even more fabulous! I found this other pretty P&P Kindle cover (picture on the right) on the Internet a few days ago and have fallen in love with it... Guess this means I'll have to get a Kindle, right?

7. 'I Love Books' Necklace

I love long necklaces with pretty pendants and I fell in love as soon as I saw this one. Perfect for book lovers, right? Gorgeous!

8. A Bookish Cup of Tea

A good book and a nice warm cup of tea go perfectly together, and having a lovely book-related cup to drink your tea from makes it even better! I have a big collection of literary cups, and I love adding new ones, such as this lovely 'Mary Poppins' cup!

9. Book Staircase Stickers

How brilliant is this?! I love the idea of turning a normal staircase into something special by adding the titles of books to the different steps. It really adds a personal touch, especially if you pick books that mean something to you.

10. Book Cushions

How cute are these book cushions to put on your couch, in a chair or on top of your bed? I love them; they're so colourful!

These are just a few examples of the numerous amazing bookish things the world has to offer! Which bookish things are on your wish-list? I'd love to hear from you!


  1. That bookshelf skirt is so pretty and something I would totally wear.
    That Kindle cover is amazing (and unfortunately sold out).

  2. I love the bookends, and those staircase stickers are amazing!

  3. Lovely! I'm going to need one of those P&P Kindle covers. I can tell.

  4. the bookish staircase is an awesome idea!

    Thanks for sharing and dropping by my blog!

  5. I love the bookends! I have some bookends on my list too, but I think I prefer these ones! :)


  6. This list just kept getting better and better; I felt like every one I liked just as much as the last! (Seriously, this TTT is going to wreck my budget for next month, haha!) My favorites are those bookends, that skirt, and the mugs!

    But also the stair stickers, the cushions, and the tote bag ... ;)

    Here's my list of all-things-bookish-to-buy, if you'd like to check it out:)
