Bookish Things I Own and Love

Monday, January 14, 2013

As a book lover, bibliophile, and reader, I can't help but be drawn towards bookish things. If they're reading and/or writing related, I'm all for it. Here's some bookish things I own. Some I bought, but most are gifts from family and friends that just know me very well. 

 My Deathly Hallows necklace from Hot Topic! 

 A beautiful handmade gift that has all my favorite book quotes. 

 Sorry it's so inappropriately wrinkly! I bought this at a bookstore in Seattle. I will be doing a review on it on my next post maybe! 

 Got this butterbeer mug as a souvenir from our April 2012 trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

 Hogwarts hoodie from Hot Topic. 

 Jane Eyre scarf from a shop on Etsy. It was a birthday gift and don't recall the Etsy store name.

 A typewriter mug from Barnes and Noble.

 Two book-looking storage boxes. I think I got it at Michael's. 

 A gift from someone who knows me so well. Hogwarts houses bookmarks. So lovely.

 Another gift from a friend. I believe it's also from an Etsy store, but I don't know which one. But if you search for Harry Potter bracelets or jewelry, a lot of them will show up! 

A gift from my aunt. I'm not sure what it is, but they're little handmade Harry Potter copies. There's also only 6 of them, because my niece played with them and lost one of them somehow in my room.

And a wand. It's Harry Potter's official one from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Also a gift. 

As you can see, most of this stuff are Harry Potter related things. Haha. I'd love to see the bookish things that you own as well. You can share links below to your own posts (if you have one or if you write one after this) or tweet - @ramblings2010 - or instagram - @jillmray - me the photo! 


  1. You have some beautiful stuff here! I especially love that handmade gift, how thoughtful.

  2. I love the handmade board with all the quotes! What a beautiful gift! Big fan of the Harry Potter geekery, and I LOVE the Jane Eyre scarf. Sadly it seems they're no longer available or I'd have been in there like a shot, it's my favourite book and I'm rereading it RIGHT NOW! :)

  3. You have so many lovely treasure. I want a scarf just like that. *le sigh*

    FAB mug.
    And I remember you're beautiful typewriter print/quotes picture. Love it.

  4. These are all so awesome. I especially love the Deathly Hallows necklace. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Oh my goodness! I got the Jane Eyre scarf for my aunt this Christmas lol :D That's one of (possibly her #1) favorite books. *Sigh* Rochester, you are a romantic at heart. You have some great stuff here!!

  6. You have such beautiful Harry Potter stuff! I'm about to search every last shop on etsy for that scarf, it's amazing.

  7. I love your bookish things! I've seen that Jane Eyre scarf before and it is gorgeous! I think I'm finally making it to HP World this year and I'd love any tips! Email me if there's anything I definitely need to check out if you ever have an extra minute.

  8. Oh wow NICE. I have a lot of books and bookmarks and such, but very little in the way of bookish things like this.
