Bookish Goodies ǀ Lifestyle

Jess McGlynnMay 17, 2017

Spend just 10 minutes in my company and it will soon become obvious that I am something of a bookworm.  But even more than that…I am a lover of bookish goodies.  Anything inspired by a favourite read is right up my street and I have a number of quotes and stories which I am always on the lookout for.

With my birthday just around the corner, I had been spending a little more time than usual scouring for bookish trinkets and goodies and I thought I would share some of my favourite items with you.  

I mentioned Etsy in another post from this week, about my rose gold picks of the moment and it really is a great place to head if you want something personal or unusual either for yourself or to give as a gift.


I don’t think you can ever have too many bookmarks, especially not ones which can be personalised with quotes you love or want to be reminded of when reading.  I also don’t think you can beat any item which is covered in foxes and designed to keep your book intact; I seriously need one of these in my life!  I love to carry my books out and about with me; it’s one way I get so much reading done but the amount of times a corner of the book gets creased or the cover gets damaged…you get the picture!

I have used Bookworm, Candles & Craft a number of times now.  Although bookish candles are getting more popular in the UK, they used to be really hard to come by and postage from the US was just insane.  These candles are adorable though and I ordered a Harry Potter themed box at Christmas from here which had a number of other themed goodies inside and was just perfect.  I’d seriously recommend checking them out.

I adored Little Women when I was growing up so I had to include this necklace when I spotted it.  I might try and find a print with the quote on because there’s just something very lovely about it.  I also had to include this blind date with a book because I think it’s such a cool idea.  I definitely need to arrange one for myself.  And finally, what better addition to your shelves then beautiful roses made out of your favourite novel?

This is my all time favourite place to go for items with quotes on.  In fact, I was given a Jane Austen mug last year from my sister which came from Redbubble and one of my favourite sellers on there: EvieBookish.  

What do you think of my choices?  Have you got any tried and tested places for bookish goodies? I’d love to hear them!
