Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Things I'd Like To Own

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke & The Bookish. Each week they host a different top ten topic.




Great topic this week! I have an endless list of bookish things that I would like to own.


Number one on my list, and the one I will actually be getting this weekend, is new bookcases. I have two atm, but they are both full. I have around 20 storage boxes filled with books, so I really need some more. I should be getting two new, large bookcases this weekend and I can't wait, I've have a lot of fun organising my books.

A house that is pretty much just made of bookcases. It would be my mission in life to fill them all up. I would want every room in my house to have bookshelves in it. Except for the bathroom, because steam and books just don't go! I want them floor to ceiling, I want to have to climb ridiculously tall ladders to reach the top. I don't want a library, one room dedicated to reading, I want the whole has to be filled with books.
I want this in my house, slightly bigger room. Wall to wall books. And that little sitting area?  Im thinking larger with loads of pillows and comfy matress...  Maybe in the floor if the window comes to the floor.  !!!!Keyifli saatlerA reading spot like this one by the window. For when I want to read with the sun warming me and looking out at a beautiful view.A hideaway reading spot, for when I want to lounge about and read all day. For when I just want to get lost in my book and don't want anyone to disturb me.
To go back to Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour. I live in London so this one is easy. I will be going back in July with my sisters, and as it will be my birthday around that time, I will treat myself to loads of Harry Potter merchandise. You could get lost in the gift shop there.
A Kindle Paperwhite. I have the original Kindle, and I love it, but I think it would be handy to have one with a light on. Just so I can read in the car late at night, or indoors without having the main light on.
I want a lamp, because I am definitely a late night reader. With work, blogging and everything else, it's really hard to find time to read during the day. So most of my reading now gets done between half 10 and 2am. I read in bed and so it drives the boyfriend crazy that I have the light on every night. He would be most appreciative if I bought a lamp, and just had the light on on my side.
  I want a lounge chair, like one my parents had in our house when I was younger. It was amazing, had good bounce, and me and the cat would fight for this chair. It was the perfect reading chair, I was so upset when they got rid of it. Definitely want my own one now.
I want more bookish shirts. I have a few, but there are so many that I want. I have hundreds of HP ones I want, HG ones and so many more.
Thanks to Notebook Sisters, I now want a ton of bookish shoes as well. They look amazing, how could you not want them.
I kind of want to own all things books and book related. I want to just post hundreds of pictures of all the cool bookish things that I want. But I will refrain. I am a sucker for tshirts, shoes, jewellery and anything else book related. I also love book versions of Board Games. HP monopoly, I want you!



There are so many more, but I am too lazy to name them all. Very excited to see everyone's answers this week, and to add new additions to my list.





And my giveaway to celebrate reaching 850 Bloglovin' followers!

  1. I have to agree on the room full of books and a little nook area to read, that's what I want in the future, a little place to call my own, but I want it hidden behind a bookcase door, so I can have my favourites on the front and others in a room behind. What a dream that is! Fantastic list hunny! :D

    1. I would love that, I am sure I could fill them all. So far I have to stack my books on the shelf, not standing up. That really bugs me, so I definitely need a hundred more bookshelves so that they can all stand up.

  6. Bookcases!!!! Wouldn't that be awesome if we all could have a massive room dedicated to nothing but shelf after shelf of books?!? If I were doing a TTT post this week, bookcases would definitely be on it.

  9. I love this list!! I am in complete agreement with the Hideaway reading spot. It would be perfect if I had a little nook of bookcases where no one would disturb me when I was reading.
    I am also in love with the Hunger Games Shoes!! Although, if I ever got bookish shoes I don't know if I would wear them or not; I think I would be to afraid of damaging them.

  10. OOh love the color change of your blog! The blue is so fresh! Love it! Loving the Harry Potter items too! And of course the bookshelves and walls made of bookshelves!

  15. I love all of those pictures of bookshelves. And I agree, I love a library room but I want my whole house to have books all over it. And I've always wanted a two-story room with bookshelves that you need a ladder. And I love my Kindle paperwhite, I have to say. The backlight is great, you don't have to worry about sitting right under a lamp. Great list! ~Pam

  18. I would love to visit Harry Potter world! And, having just bought a new paperwhite because my original kindle finally broke, I have to say the backlight is nice. I always forgot to bring a mini light for the car with the old one, and now I don't have to bug my hubby with the overhead light while we drive at night!

  28. "A house that is pretty much just made of bookcases." <--- THIS THOUGH. Um, HECK YEAH. I seriously could handle that. But I wouldn't just put books on my shelves because I'd need places to stack my nerdy mugs and bookish shoes. MWAHAHA! I have converted you to the dark side of needing ALL THE SHOES. Welcome. There are so many to long for. XD

    1. I KNOW!!! Every bookworm needs a house like that. I would need to put all my nerdy stuff on it too, it would be brilliant. ALL THE SHOES!!! YES! I need them too, but I would be scared to wear them. They are so beautiful and I wouldn't want to ruin them.

    1. I really want to go to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, but it's just soooo much money. I need a house that has bookshelves in practically every room. I could spend my life trying to fill them all.
