Bookish Finds is a monthly series that features bookish products. This month’s post will showcase all things I’d love to see under my Christmas tree. ‘Tis the season for hot chocolate. Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Happy sipping, elves and reindeer.


Harry Potter Hedwig Mug

You may not have received your Hogwarts letter or your owl (I’m still waiting, Rowling…), but you can cozy up next to fire with your very own Hedwig mug.


Game of Thrones Cookbook


Why not switch up your Christmas feast with this Game of Thrones cookbook. A little blood, guts, gore, and a delectable rack of lamb will always get you in the spirit of Christmas, right?


Harry Potter Ornaments


Well, looky there, I don’t have to pick a House. Don’t hurt me, but I’m still deciding! Ahem…

Decorate your tree with these nerdy Harry Potter-inspired ornaments. You receive a set of six and can customize them by having them stained, painted, or left in the natural wood finish. Just don’t let Crookshanks near them, though.


Reading Mug


The perfect mug for every book lover. You can also customize your mug too. Stallings and Son offers many colour options, and you can even add some glitter.

I think it’s sad when a mug is much more nicer than I am. I’d have a few choice words with the person who thinks bugging when I’m reading is a great plan. But sometimes you must be more direct and spell it out for the poor guy.


Indigo’s Reading Socks


I’m a sucker for socks and grey, so I have to add these cozy pair. Reading is serious business, so Indigo has released a whole line of Reading Socks. Oh, if you aren’t a fan of them, you can grab yourself a pair of slippers as well.

Bookish Finds is a monthly series that features bookish products. This month’s post will showcase Halloween-inspired goodies. What else do you think I’d write about?

Happy haunting, ghouls and goblins!!


Dracula Scarf


Get in the Halloween spirit with a Dracula scarf. Margo and Tala @ the Literati Club make a variety of bookish goodies: scarves, hats, beanies, umbrellas, dresses, t-shirts, bags, and headbands. They are all hand made. Go take a look! You’ll be surprised at what you find. I may just snag this one for me!


Halloween Dust Jackets


Aren’t these jackets just adorable? Eee! Throw in some macabre, put in some gargoyles, skulls, black candles, and moss, and you’ll have a creepy Halloween centrepiece for your next Halloween party. South House Boutique offers three dust jackets that are printed on high quality paper, which will last for years. You’ll get these covers: The Headless Horseman by D. Capitation, Her Ghoulish Ways by P & Ma Caub, and Anatomy of a Werewolf by Claude & Harry Graysons. Each cover measures at 9.5 x 19″. And they’ll fit typical standard hardcovers.


Sugar Skull Bookmark


Celebrate Halloween and Dia de los Muertos all in one bookmark. This bookmark features a Mexican skull skeleton playing a guitar or maracas and your choice of a glass crystal bead. It’ll dangle over the spine, so you’ll always see it! It measures in at 3.5″ and is a nickle-free alloy metal.

You can find other bookmarks, like vampire teeth, werewolves, and faeries at Spotlight Jewelry.


Brothers Grimm’s Fairy Tales Book Purse


This Brothers Grimm’s Fairy Tales leather book purse designed by Krukrustudio will delight any reader. It features the following: genuine leather, magnet snap closure, two inner pockets, and adjustable shoulder strap. It also comes in black and brown. You can find other book purses, like Jane Austen and Frankenstein at Krukrustudio.


Halloween Book Pumpkin


Whimsy Workshop has designed this adorable bookish pumpkin. Yes, cutting up and damaging a book isn’t always a good present for book lovers, but many can’t resist this treat! It’d look perfect on a decked-out porch or mantel.

Bookish Finds is a monthly series that features bookish products. This month’s post will showcase book-inspired candles! (Oh, my mother will be so proud of me. 😌)

So Owlcrate inspired this post. This month’s box contained The Melting Library‘s Celaena’s Cake. These little delights will be a great treat for anyone who wants to enhance the reading experience, who reads an ereader (my sympathies to my electronic friends, smells do not apply), or who, well, love everything bookish (AHEM. Yeah, that’s me. My house will smell like books and nothing else!). SO here you go, dearies.


Lallybroch Soy Candle


I can’t ask much else than to smell Jamie Fraser’s home, Lallybroch. Well, if I can get a whiff of him, I can die happy. So this beauty is made by Frostbeard, which makes an array of candles based on books and is soy based (no carcinogens!). The scent combines whisky, peat moss, and wood smoke (so the Scotland Highlands). This 8 oz. candle has a rather strong scent, according to the maker, so be prepared!


Always Victorious Candle

il_570xN.1041323857_tcgw.jpgSabaa Tahir’s An Ember in the Ashes inspired this torch (if you don’t get this reference, I may hurt you). Just like the Celaena’s Cake candle, this one comes from The Melting Library as well. This candle combines cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, firewood, and fresh rain to create a delightful smell that will remind you of Elias Venturius (I see what you did there, The Melting Library). Always Victorious is also an 8 oz. soy based. I wish I had this when I was reading A Torch against the Night.


Bookish-type Candle Set


Oh, look at how cute they are. THEY’RE SO FLUFFY. Ahem… These cute darlings are made by Novelly Yours. You receive four 2 oz. candles: Villainous: storms, forest, fire; Book Boyfriend: cologne and cotton; Shipping It: ocean, outdoors, and cotton; and Currently Reading: book pages, coffee, cotton, and fire. I love the names!


Fandom Candles


You have a choice to pick two of these 4 oz. soy candlesPret a Geek is rather cruel. The store forces you to decide which candles you want. The horror. That decision may be harder than you think. You can choose the following: Wizard’s Feast, Mrs. Weasley’s Cookies (!), Butter Beer (!!!), Merrier Place, The Shire (Oh, I want this), Rose Tyler I, Police Box Blue, How You Brewin’?, and Winter Is Coming (there goes my bank account).


The Night Court Candle


Ugh. I need to read this series! Anyways, Seven Hearts Co. has perfected this faetastic candle. The scent includes citrus, star jasmine, and ocean water, which will make you think you think Rhys is right next to you (according to the maker, not me). This candle is 8 oz. and burns for approximately 55 hours (the longest burn time out of all these).



Bookish Finds (1)

Hi, everyone!

I’m starting a new monthly series called Bookish Finds*, which will highlight book-related products. The Book Riot inspired me on this little adventure with its Book Fetish series. (And quite a few book bloggers have followed suit, so I wouldn’t mind throwing in my picks as well.)

I try to find anything bookish, even if my bank account doesn’t agree with me. Some items on Bookish Finds may be conversation pieces, and some may be the most talked-about find. So during my search, I’ll recommend these products. Hopefully, I can find your next bookish gift for someone special or you (admit it: the gift’s for you).

Happy buying!



* Please note that all the items I showcase are of my own choosing, and I have not received any payment––monetary or otherwise––to put them in this series. I have linked all products to the designer/maker, and I do not claim them as my own. I have no affiliation with any designer/maker or website(s). And yes, I came up with that name myself. I haven’t snagged it from another blogger.


Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children T-shirt 


One of my favourite online stores is Out of Print. It has designed this peculiar t-shirt (heh), which coincides with the upcoming theatrical release of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. If you don’t want a top, you can always buy a tote or a pouch.


Pride and Prejudice Book Scarf


Austen swag? Yes! I’m sold. This Pride and Prejudice book scarf is a great Etsy find from The Ohlala. You will find many a scarf at this unique shop. I’m certainly eyeing this one, the Lord of the Rings, The Marauder’s Map, and the Game of Thrones Map scarves!


Outlander-Inspired Scottish Thistle Bracelet

I’m always looking for anything Outlander. What I love about this Outlander silver bracelet by Serrelynda is that it looks as if it was made in the 18th century. I am in awe of the simplicity and elegance of this piece. You can find other wonderful pieces made by Sara at her Etsy shop.


Hogwarts Letter


Here’s your very own Hogwarts acceptance letter by PraxisStore. Potterheads will be thrilled when they finally receive their letter from Hogwarts. I’m still waiting on mine!

This package contains the original Hogwarts letter with materials and the book list, a Hogwarts Express ticket, and a letter from the Ministry of Magic, which apologizes for not using the traditional owl delivery service (a great touch!).

You can also add a Marauder’s map, a custom wand, a snitch, a chocolate frog (which is not edible), a deathly Hallows pendant, a timeturner, a Hogwarts trunk (15 cm x 12 cm), or a bottle of Felix Felicis pendant. This package is also available in Spanish, English, and Galician.


Cainsville Series T-shirts

Kelley Armstrong has delivered on her promise for Cainsville merchandise! She offers a Gabriel’s law firm t-shirt, a gargoyle t-shirt, and a Satan’s Saints t-shirt. All designs are offered in a variety of options. Both the law firm and Satan’s Saints shirts come in another option where you can have the gargoyle design on the back (showed in above photo).
