Top Ten Tuesday-Bookish Things (That Aren’t Books) That I’d Like to Own


Hey guys! Sorry I’m getting this post out a little late tonight, I just hadn’t gotten around to it until now.

Today I decided to do an old prompt from The Broke and the Bookish’ Top Ten Tuesday since they are on hiatus until August. But first, I wanted to give you a little update on my Camp Nano progress and how the 24 hour reathathon went!



Okay so first of all, I think in my opinion the readathon was a success for me. πŸ˜ƒ The goal was just to read as much as you possibly could in the span of 24 hours. My goal I set for myself was to finish two books I previously started and to read an entire book I hadn’t started yet. I did finish the two I started, (Firefight by Brandon Sanderson and Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver) but the ending of Before I Fall made me so sad and literally two minutes after I finished it I got into an argument with my mom. 😒 So because I was already upset about the ending of the book and the argument happened on top of it I cried for a couple hours and didn’t feel much like reading anymore, so I didn’t start the third book (Shattered by Dani Pettrey) until I only had about three hours left and I only got about 14% through it. πŸ˜•But I am glad I started it at least and I was able to check off at least two books off of my TBR!😊




As for Camp Nano, yeah…I’m not doing as well. πŸ˜† I mean, I’m doing okay I guess, but I changed my goal from 20,000 words down to 5,000. At least it’s a short story though. The contest I’m writing for said it had to be between 5,000 and 20,000 so I’m sure it will be a lot longer after I revise it. And boy it is going to need a lot of revising. πŸ˜‚ I’m not working on it every day, and I’m really struggling on figuring out where it’s going since I’m mostly pantsing it this time. Also, just being really lazy isn’t helping my motivation much so right now it’s looking like a third grader wrote it. πŸ˜‚ Oh well, I’m currently at 3,757 words so hopefully I will still meet my goal by the end of the month.πŸ˜‰



Anyway on to TTT!



This prompt is all about my bookish item wish list! I thought this prompt sounded so fun so I raided my favorites on Etsy (ahem…which…may or may not be 40 pages long…hah. 😳)



Anyhoo…



1.    BOOKMARKS!!! 
I LOVE these fangirl octopus magnetic bookmarks from Happy Hello. You can find HUNDREDS of unique and adorable bookmarks all over Etsy! 😍


2.    Necklaces
 I especially love bookish jewelry, like this "book nerd" necklace from Paper Heart Daily.


3.    Earrings
These earrings from Bead SparkleZ are SO cute! If I worked at a bookstore, I would wear them every day!


4.    Candles
I don't know about you, but I would love a bookish candle! I think they're so cool! This one inspired by Alice in Wonderland from Icey Designs smells like cotton candy, lemon drops, birthday cake, raspberries, and black tea. πŸ˜‹ Yum!


5.    This Tote Bag
This tote bag from Say it With Pizzazz would be perfect for hauling my books around to my college classes when I go back to school this fall! 😊 Plus it matches the necklace.


6.    Book Themed Tea

Who ever would have thought of book themed tea? This one from Tea Hippies is a blend of Chinese black tea, Japanese green teas and caramel. I definitely want some!


7.    A Bookish Mug for My Bookish Tea
Of course my tea needs a book themed mug, and this one from Foxy Mug is really cute!


8.    Folded Book Art
 Look at this cuteness! I would totally decorate my shelves with this folded book art from Happy Little Gifts.


9.    This Tee Shirt
Of course every bookworm needs a tee shirt proclaiming their love of books. 😊 I'm especially excited about this because this shop, Bookery Boutique, is based in Alaska, my home! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„


10.Bookends!
And of course I could always use some more bookends. πŸ˜ƒ I love these pretty feathers from Elvish Things Home! They would look great in my room. I'm thinking about doing a turquoise and white color scheme. πŸ˜€


I hope you enjoyed this post! Did you participate in #ReadathonbyZoe? How many books did you finish? How is Camp Nano going for you? Can you believe we are halfway through July already? 😱 Are you going crazy waiting for TTT to come back? Chat with me! 😊
