Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Every year I write a Christmas list. Every year, I GET NO BOOKS!! (<- so depressing 😦 ) Apparently Santa thinks I have too many books already (a state of being that is impossible to achieve… Kind of like having too many dragons in a book 😉 ).*
* This year I’ve given bookish merch AND books as my only items…. if this doesn’t work, I’m planning to hold for ransom all my homemade baked goods until some of these titles are in my needy claws. One book = one homemade danish. 😀
WORD CLOUD CLASSICS = GORGEOUS AND AFFORDABLE
I started seeing these editions popping up around bookstagram and fell in love with the fact that they make a rainbow. I just rearranged my horde by color and NEED MORE RAINBOW COLOR BOOKS IN MY LIFE. Plus classics. Where did all my classics go!?!? I KNOW I used to own Pride and Prejudice, but unless it bribed one of my book brownies into sneaking it out for a library spritzer, I have no clue where it went. 😦 (<-makes photographing it really hard). I decided to start collecting these beauties based on this magnificent logic, but only have this pretty blue Sense and Sensibility so far.
Some of the titles high on my wishlist for this are: Pride and Prejudice, Emma (it’s PINK and I have ZERO pink books! #NEED), Mansfield Park…. hmmm, I see a theme 😛
BOOKISH CANDLES AND ACOMAF = GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME
I read a library copy of A Court of Mist and Fury, BUT I DON’T OWN THIS BEAUTY. Which is all of the sad when I want to photograph it, pet it, quote it while pretending to be Shakespeare. You know, the normal bookworm with an obsession stuff. 😉 What I do have is bookish candles…. but there are so many miraculously wonderful stores on Etsy that I just want them ALL. In particular, Meraki Candles ❤ I have some on order and I cannot WAIT for them to arrive and be greeted by its’ elder candle siblings.
HARRY POTTER BOOKS = STOLEN BY MY FAMILY
I USED to have all the books of HP, but now I only have a really worn and falling apart copy of Deathly Hallows. The rest have been abducted by the other bookworms in my family who fail to believe me when I flail about photo needs and aesthetic (#superimportantthingsinlife). This candle is one of the few HP things I have in my horde…. and my Dumbledore funko can only hold off the dark forces by himself for so long. Let us all hope for some miraculous HP to appear under the tree!
CARAVAL = LOOKS SO EPIC AND LOOK I ALREADY HAVE A CANDLE!
I totally bought this candle because I adored the name, Isla de los Sueños = Island of Dreams. It was developed to go with the book Caraval, which is technically due out in January, but book elves can be nice sometimes and deliver things early? *bats dragonish eyelashes*
What do you want under your bookish christmas tree?? What other books would you suggest I ask for?
