Top Ten Tuesday // Bookish Items I NEED

The Top Ten Tuesday Meme is brought to you via
The Broke and The Bookish

Guess who's back.  Back again.  Teisha's back.  Tell a friend.

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

So, I've been slacking.  A lot.  I haven't written a Top Ten Tuesday post in forever.  (2 months, 13 hours, and 58 minutes to be exact.  But, hey, who's counting?)  However, my best friend Cheryl just gave me a branding makeover last week.  She designed an awesome logo for my blog, which I love.  And, she also created the beautiful image you see above for my Top Ten Tuesday posts.  Naturally, that gave me the motivation to get the Top Ten ball rolling again.  (P.S. You can check out more of Cheryl's design work at cherylabu.com!)

This week's Top Ten Tuesday post is a great post to come back on because it's a freebie!  I chose to write about the Top Ten Bookish Items That I Really Want Need.  I love shopping and I love book-related merchandise.  And, if I had the money, I would buy all of the things on this.  But, unfortunately, I don't.  Whomp whomp.

Here is this week's list:

1) Elephant Bookends

Preferably, these Jonathan Adler bookends from Barnes & Noble, or these pretty ones from Dot & Bo.

2) Book Candles

I love candles that are based off of books.  I would love either this Mortal Instruments candle or this Throne of Glass candle.  (TMI and TOG are two of my favorite series!)

3) Ampersand Necklace

4) Pride & Prejudice Throw

5) Throne of Glass T-Shirt from Litographs


If you couldn't tell, I'm a really big Throne Of Glass fan.

7) A "Rattle the Stars" Tattoo

Cause, ya know, Throne of Glass...

8) Kindle Cover

My poor little Kindle baby has been naked since the day I bought it.  It's getting cold outside.  It needs warm clothes.  Preferably, something fashionable such as this cover or this one.

9) Typewriter

Cause the writer in me just really wants one, OK?

10) More Books, Of Course

My bookish wishlist is overflowing right now.  But, I would really love these:
The Invasion of the Tearling // Ice Like Fire // Dreamstrider // Written In The Stars // Uprooted

I Like My Money Right Where I Can See It...

  1. Did you add any of these items to your bookish wishlist?  Are there any other items I should consider getting?
  2. Did you complete a Top Ten Tuesday this week?  If so, be sure to link it below!

I hope you all have a lovely week!

    1. Thanks so much, Carrie! I'll definitely check out Frostbeard's candles! :)

  2. Love your list Teisha. i keep hearing about these book candles and the more I hear about them the more I want one. My favorite bookish things are bookish clothing. I want the world to see how much I love my books.

    1. Hi, Kaylee! I don't have any book candles yet, BUT my best friend got me a Thor candle from Bubble & Geek for my birthday (because I adore Thor and Chris Hemsworth) and I loved it! I love candles from Etsy in general. But, book candles are even better! And yes, bookish clothing is awesome, too! Thanks for dropping by!

  3. I vote for the Jane Eyre cover! So beautiful! I think it would make me happy every time I saw it! Nice Top 10!

    2. Hello, Jennifer! I need that cover in my life, especially considering that it's about to get chilly outside. Thanks for commenting. I'll go check out your TTT right now! :)

  4. So glad you decided to join this week's TTT, Teisha, and that you had the same brilliant idea for this freebie top 10 as me! *high fives* I love the Pride and Prejudice throw and the Jane Eyre Kindle cover, I neeeeed them!
