Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new topic/top ten list and invite everyone to share their own answers. I'm so obsessed with lists - so it makes perfect sense that I'd love this feature!

Top Ten Bookish Things (Not Books) That I'd Like to Own
1. Custom Blog Design - I love my current design and am so happy with the pre-made template that I chose. However, in my dream world, I'd love to have a custom design. I don't know how long I'll be around the blogosphere though, so I always feel like I can't justify the cost.

2. I Never Met A Book I Wouldn't Take to Bed Shirt - I've never bought a book-related shirt before, but this is one I just cannot resist! It makes me laugh and has been on my wishlist for a long time. It's probably time I take the plunge and just buy it already.

3. Book Lovers Mug - I'm not sure how much my husband will appreciate this mug, but it's too cute not to buy it. So nerdy, but so adorable! The seller also makes it as a print if you want some nerd love on your wall instead.

4. She Is Too Fond of Books Tote Bag - Can't you just see me schlepping this around the library? I always walk out with WAY more books than I went in to pick up, and I think this will contribute nicely to that little habit.

5. Ikea KALLAX Shelves - I was pretty sad when I found out the Ikea was discontinuing their EXPEDIT shelves (since I already own two of them), but it seems like their new KALLAX line is almost identical. I hope that's true because I was planning on expanding my library!

6. Ideal Bookshelf 660: Girl Stars - I almost put a custom Ideal Bookshelf painting on my wishlist, but I've also got a soft spot for these prints. As a huge fan of classics and amazing heroines, I'd most like to hang this one with the other two I already own.

7. Great Expectations - I haven't seen this movie yet, but I started reading the book after I watched the recent mini-series version starring Douglas Booth (hottie alert!). With Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes, this one has me curious!

8. The Invisible Woman - Another literary movie I haven't seen but want to - starring Ralph Fiennes as Charles Dickens and Felicity Jones as the young woman he has an affair with (I think?). Anyway, I'm a sucker for costume dramas so I really look forward to watching it!

9. Reading Chair - I don't want this exact chair, but I am dying to have a comfy and cozy chaise lounge as my very own reading spot. I typically read in the bath, in bed or on the couch... but I can totally see myself curling up in a spot like this with a good book.

10. Custom Calligraphy Book Stamp - I have zero idea if I'd actually use this because I have a difficult relationship with stamps... but I like to think that this stamp would actually work for me. It looks so gorgeous in the pictures, right?!

  1. I love #2 & #6! An custom Ideal Bookshelf painting is soooo tempting, but I'm not sure I could decide on which books to include.

    1. #2 & #6 are the two I've most contemplated buying haha! And yeah, I like the prints because a) cheaper and b) I don't have to choose books. So stressful!

  2. I absolutely need a reading chair, too. I have "my spot" on the couch, but much like you, I want my own chaise lounge. Unfortunately, there just isn't room with our current furniture. Maybe once we get new furniture, I can finagle it with the fiance. :)

    My TTT!

    1. Yay for reading chairs! The couch just isn't cutting it :) I don't really have the space for it right now, but it's still fun to have it on my future wishlist. Maybe someday!

    1. Oh dreaming of chairs... Right there with you! Even if it makes me feel like I'm fully an adult once I start wishlisting furniture haha

  5. So many pretty things! I've always dreamed of having a large reading room, complete with comfy chairs, a window nook and floor-to-ceiling shelves with a ladder!
