Bookish Gifts

Do you need to give a present to a bookworm? Are you a bookworm and you don’t know what bookish item should you buy for yourself? Don’t worry, I’ve got your back. Today I will be listing some of the best gifts you can give to a book lover.

candles

90% of the book community has the desire of buying bookish candles, me included. But we all know that some of us can’t aford to buy candles for more than $3, so I guess that a candle would be an awesome ideia for someone that has a few or even none.

The internet is floating with candle companys but here are some of the ones I most appreciate, for the hype and for the good looking candles, I can’t tell you about the smell because I don’t own any bookish candles.

By the way, if I ever buy a bookish candle is going to be from this store, I am completly in love with their candles. 😍 And they actuallly are not that pricey, each of them costs $8.

You have no ideia, or maybe you have, of the horror of buying a book and leaving the bookstore to find that inside that book there is not a matching bookmark. I have many bookmarks, but I love matching the book with the bookmark.

Recently, I’ve found many awesome bookmarks shops, here are my favourites:

Look at the little Feyre and Rhysand, this store has the cutest magnetic bookmarks.

I am a hardcore fan of booktube, that means I’ve seen many subscription box’s unboxings, and one of the coolest things they recieve on that boxes is prints. I love prints, expeacially the ones that portrait ACOTAR characters.

Here are some of my favourite stores and a different way you can get prints if you don’t have enough money to buy them.

Evie Bookish does not only design prints but also mugs, bookmarks, phone cases, tote bags, t-shirts and many other things that you can find on her society 6 page linked above.

This designer sells many things besides prints, but the prints are the thing that is been getting a lot of hype recently, most of them are, of course, from the Acotar series by Sarah J. Maas.

  • Get the actual prints online : 

I know this may sound kind of stupid but you can actually print them at home, it is bad because the designer doesn’t get the money, but you print them in nice and strong paper and it’s ready to go.

I have a collection called “Books” on weheartit.com dedicated to books, there you can find various prints from various books:

Funko pops ( instagram // twitter // website) are one of the cutest things ever, but the thing is they are really expensive, so if you don’t mind spending this kind of money on a present, I promise you that the person you give the funko to will love it.

There are more bookish presents than these but these are the ones that I know most of the book community will like.

Booktube-a-thon Day 3

I’ve also posted Booktube-a-thon Day 1 and Booktube-a-thon Day 2, you can check them out if you want.

Booktube-a-thon Day 2

 

Overall I read only a couple of pages, because I was busy with all of the paperwork needed for my college’ scholarship. Despite that, I had a couple of minutes to fo the instagram challenge, which didn’t turned out to be how I wanted but for my first bookstagram photo it’s okay.

I’ll post my updates for today, tomorrow, so stay tuned for that. I hope you’re all having a much sucessful booktube-a-thon. 😘😘

 

Booktube-A-Thon Day 1

Hello book lovers and happy Booktube-a-Thon!!!

As I said on my previous posts, I’ll be posting daily updates for booktube-a-thon here in the next morning, so here it is the updates for day 1. Sorry for publishing it so late today.

Six Of Crows Dream Cast

I’ve finished reading Six of Crows yesterday and the emotions are still fresh, so excuse any sentence where I freak out too much.

This book was awesome, I DO understand the hype surrounding it, the characters were very intense, there was not a single point of view that I disliked reading. Six Of Crows is definitely a book that takes a lot of creativity to write, when you think: “It is not possible that their current situation could get worser!” and then they get into more trouble and they use fantastic plans to get through it.

I will not talk about the ending part even thought I really want to do it, let’s just say it was AWESOME! I bet Crooked Kingdom is going to be an hell of a ride! 😍

When I was half way through the book (in the middle of the whole week I took to read it 😒), I found myself thinking: “What a great movie this would be!”, and yeah, what a great 24 hour long movie this would be (if they didn’t include even the tiniest detail, I would take a shot of jurda parem so I could kick their ass).

We all know that probably this is not the perfect cast for everyone but I do see them as the characters from the book.


Now a little announcement: as you may or may not know, I’ll be joining this year’s booktube-a-thon, but because I don’t own a youtube channel I’ll be posting video updates on my twitter. I’ll post every video update on here from day 1, in day 2′ morning and do that for the rest of the days.

I wish you all a very happy and sucessful booktube-a-thon. 😘

1. I am going to apply to college on Monday, July 24th, and I’m crazy scared, I think I’ll become a anxiety ball until the results for the application come out.

2. When I was little, I was chasing my sister around the house, I fell and I broke my teeth, four of them. I spent a year in pre school with almost no front teeth.

3. I spend most of my day either on youtube or watching tv shows, my favorite youtubers right now include Jessie Paege and Floral Princess, besides I am obsessed with The Big Bang Theory.

4. Me and one of my friend try new food every friday, we have tasted every gum flavour in the stores close to our school.

5. I have a page in my journal dedicated to travel planning, and I have a never ending list of places that I want to visit, some of them in my own country. The best trip I went on was to Salamanca, Spain, with my friends and we’ve been thinking about going back since we came back in April.

6. I am fluent in English and I’ve learned it, in the beginning,  with the Harry Potter movies.

7. I have ornithophobia which is the fear of birds, I can’t stand being close to a chicken and I look patetic when I am near pigeons, I seriously look like a ninja.

8. My friends say I have a weird taste in music just because I listen to The 1975 and Halsey, besides I have the The Flash Musical Episode Soundtrack and Pitch Perfect Soundtrack on my phone.

9. The reason why Nesta is on my blog header is because 90% of the time I look as pissed off as she does, almost everything can trigger my bad mood.

10. I suck at sports, every single one of them, I wish I could just play volleyball but it is just not something that I can do.

11. I am crazy for superheroes, my favorites are Captain America from Marvel and The Flash from DC.

1. What book/series got you into reading?

My godmother was the person that got me into reading, she always gave me tons of books that I devored, but my favorite series that I read and reread several times as a kid was Geronimo Stilton, to this day I still like to watch the cartoon and I am 17.

2. What are some of your favorite artists?

I am a music addict so this is a long list: Imagine Dragons, Halsey, The 1975. Fun., Panic! At the Disco, Ed Sheeran, Melanie Martinez, and I am currently obsessed with Gone Now by Bleachers.

3. What are some blogging tips you have for beginners?

I am a beginner myself so I am not the best person to give advice about that.

4. If your life-story was being turned into a movie, who would you want to play you?

Let’s face it, my life is too boring to be turned into a movie, but if I turn out to be the badass activist I aspire to be, then I want Lindsey Morgan to play me, not because we look alike but because she is able to kick every dictator’s butt herself.

5. If you could travel through time, would you go take a peek at the past or would you rather see what’s to come and go into the future?

I would go into the past to see if what they taught me in history class was true.

6. What’s your dream career/job?

I’ve always wanted to be a doctor, but that dream is almost impossible because my grades are not that high, so I’ll be applying to nursing school. Also, as a part time job, I would love to work in a library.

7. What’s your favorite childhood movie?

When I was 7 years old, my cousin gave me a movie called Barbie and the Twelve Dancing Princesses, when I was older my favorite movie turned out to be Madagascar 3, I even remember seeing it with my godmother in cinema.

8. What was your favorite subject in school?

Math was my favourite subject and I think I was good at it, I actually scored 19/20 on my math exam. Math and books have the benefit of taking my mind of my problems.

9. Do you collect anything? If so, what is it that you collect?

Everytime I buy something, whether it is for me or a present for someone, I keep the receipt. Now I have a box full of them and I find it awesome how I can look at them and think “Oh, i remember buying this on this trip”.

10. What’s your favorite thing to do besides reading?

Watching tv shows or movies.

11. If you could live anywhere in space (e.g. any planet, galaxy, star, moon, etc) where would you live and why?

I would still live in Earth because this is where all of the magic is happening, but I would love to travel through our galaxy, which would only be possible if I lived for thousands of years.
