Top Ten Bookish Items That Are THE SHIZ

LOVE the topic of this week’s Top Ten Tuesday because in addition to loving books, I also love ALL THE BOOKISH THINGS. My bank account, on the other hand, most certainly does NOT. I frequently have to restrain myself while perusing Etsy… that site is dangerous! In fact, this list could have easily devolved into the Top Fifty Harry Potter Trinkets That You Can Buy On Etsy, but I decided to limit that urge as much as possible. So half of these items are Potter-centric and the other half are general bookish items. Purchase links included when available. Enjoy!

Potter-Centric Items:

1. Make Love Not Horcruxes Totebag
This cute tote is brought to you by RaeGun's Etsy shop! Marissa sells a variety of fun bookish items, both Potter-centric and non. She's on maternity leave at the moment, but you should definitely check out her stuff! [Link]

2. Marauder's Map Infinity Scarf
Behold! This nerdy accessory comes from Nerd Alert Creations on Etsy. Of course I own it already, in addition to a Middle Earth Map Skirt. [Link]

3. Homemade Knit Hogwarts House Scarf
Don't have a friend to knit you a House Scarf like I did? You can get your own from CrabTree Corner on Etsy. [Link]

4. Alivan’s Makers of Fine Wands
Alivan's has been in the business of making beautiful wands for a long while now. You can also buy broomsticks and other Potterish stuff on their site! [Link]

5. Mischief Managed Mug
This mug from the WB Shop changes colour and text as it is filled with the hot beverage of your choice! Alas, it is sold out at the moment. [Link]

General Bookish Items:

6. Less Than Three Bookends
Because I heart books! [Link]

7. Bookish Shower Curtain
Because why not? [Link]

8. Bookish Sheets
Because I love to read in bed. [Link]

9. Bookish Bed
Because I like giant beds... in the shape of books! [Link]

10. Infinity Bookcase
Because an Infinity Bookcase can hold an infinite number of books, right? [Link]


  1. Haha I've seen that bookish bed, it looks adorable!

  2. I love all of these!!! :D And the tote bag is definitely awesome! I love mine. ;) Thanks again for getting me one! :D

    You are also totally tempting me to go on Etsy...and I've been strongly resisting it lately! I've been good and haven't bought anything on there since I got my phone case, which I still love to bits! :D But, I totally share the same love of bookish things as you do! haha We've discussed our love of Etsy before! haha One of these days I'll have to get something from Nerd Alert though! All of their stuff is gorgeous! :D

    Awesome list, Eilidh...and I would love to have the infinity shelf, and the book bed...so cute! :D I think the book page sheets would get old fast though...but it would be so neat to have sheets that had the Marauder's Map, or the Map of Westeros...or some other awesome bookish map on it! Now that I would buy in a heartbeat! :D

  3. I love Nerd Alert Creations! I just bought the best Harry Potter mug that looks something like this (it was custom made): https://www.etsy.com/transaction/186449430?ref=shop_review - scroll down.

  4. I put that MM scarf on my list this week because I NEED IT! Haha. But like you, my bank account is mad at me for already spending too much.

    But I agree with you, all these things are amazing and I now want them!

    Here is my list for this week :)
    Must Love Books

  5. Is this a blog post or my new shopping list! I want EVERYTHING!!! Great choices.

  6. Oh that is an adorable bed. I definitely want that! :-) Great list!

  7. Another list where I love all the items! I need more book ends and those ones are love. And I think I'm going to have to teach me how to knit just so I can make one of those!

  8. All the Potter things! I love the infinity bookcase. Great list! =)

  9. That Marauder's Scarf is definitely something I need in my life. Also that bookish bed is super cool.

  10. Oh, fine. I want all of these things as well :D SO gorgeous. Love the scarf the most, I think. <3 (No room for the bookshelf. Sobs.) But anyway. Amazing list sweetie :D Thank you for sharing. <3
    Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. <3
    Love, Carina @ Carina's Books

  11. I *love* that Marauders scarf. Amazing.
    I may or may not have a wand. And a cape with the Gryffindor crest. And Gryffindor tie. :)

    Check out my TTT and current giveaways!

  12. All cool. Especially the scarf, shower curtain, sheets, and the tote.

    I want this collection: http://outofprintclothing.com/shop/shop-by-title/library-card/

  13. Ok so, I literally want every single last item on your list. I have an authentic Harry Potter replica wand but I've ALWAYS wanted to order one from Alian's too. The Mischief Managed Mug is definitely on the top of my wishlist ♥ And the Maurauder's Map Infinity Scarf too - even if I own an authentic replica of the actual map hihi XD LOVE the hand-knit scarves,if I could knit I would knit them ALL! So I might just order them all instead >.< I also want to order than lovely tote bag. The sheets and book-bed are completely and utterly dreamy...and so is the infinity bookshelf; which infinity books as well haha! Seriously awesome list Aylee ^^ ♥ So.much.win.

  14. Oh, yours are good! I want the scarf and the mug! @Get Lost in Lit

  15. Lol, as soon as I saw the title of your post, I knew there would be some HP stuff in your list. I love the sound of the Mischief Managed mugs. A mug that changes colour and text as it fills up? I want one too!

  16. Oh wow, I totally want that book bed. I'd love the sheets and shower curtains too though. Adorable! Whenever I get my own place, it will probably be full of bookish items.

    I really want that Marauder's Map scarf!!!


  17. Marauder's Map Infinity Scarf is gorgeous! I've also seen this one as a legging, so cool. The mug is such a fun idea :D

  18. So many good items! I think my favorite is the infinity bookshelf because... it is infinitely amazing :) But I'm also pretttty enamored by the Mischief Managed mug. Would def. make morning coffee even more exciting :)

  19. I want all the scarves Aylee! Particularly the infinity one, that thing is so cool. And if I thought that bookish bed would actually fit in my room (and I could afford it), I'd totally buy it. Man that thing looks comfortable!

  20. Haha I love these! And that you already own some of them :P I so want that mug now. I even pinned it. Too bad it's sold out :( I actually already own a snitch Harry Potter inspired necklace and a Bilbo plush figure, but I could always use more geeky, bookish things so I may have to get a couple of these. Great post, Aylee! :D

  21. So many cute things! I love the infinity scarf and also the infinity shelf. Kind of a theme!

  22. This post was pretty much an "Shut up and Take My Money!" one!
    I need one of those cups!!!

  23. I love love love those books ends. They're great. I also love the shower curtain. One day that will be mine. I basically loved everything on this list (Etsy is a scary place for us bookish peeps).

  24. Yea, I'm thinking I may need that Marauder's Map scarf!! That is so cool!

  25. I love that you have it split in between HP items and then normal bookish. I was tempted to make my whole list all things Harry, but settled with #10 being alllll the Potter things (that map scarf was one of them!) Really excited to see you have it & love it - its moving up on my list!

    The rest of your list is also perfection. I've seen the sheets and the bed, but the shower curtain is new to me and I'm loving it:)!

  26. Oh my, some of those ideas are WAY out there. I did really like the bookcase, though.

  27. Great list! I love the Mischief Managed mug. That's actually one of my favorite Harry Potter quotes :)

  28. Mischief Managed Mug! That's awesome! And I love that bookish bed, it's amazing.

    Fabulous top ten :D
