I hope you’re all well and that you manage to feel festive and merry in these very weird times. Since Christmas is three days away, I thought I would share my bookish Christmas list and give a shoutout to some shops on Etsy. Enjoy!
I have wanted to buy a booksleeve for the longest time. The problem was finding a good and pretty one with decent shipping fees to France. Luckily I found some beautiful booksleves that ship to France.
The ones that I personally want are from THEBookSleeve on Etsy. Two designs caught my eye:
The Van Gogh one because he’s one of my favourite painters (yes, I’m basic) and it’s inspired by a Doctor Who episode with Van Gogh which is one of my all-time favourites.
I also like the Flamengo one because pink is one of my favourite colours and I think if I were in a reading slump, seeing this bright booksleeve would probably make me want to pick up the book more.
I’m calling myself out on this but I actually dog-ear my books…yes, I’m a heathen and I’m so sorry. But I’m trying to do better and so I asked for bookmarks this year. I discovered the beautiful Etsy shop that is Museumcurio on Instagram and even asked for a custom bookmark. Sarah makes the most beautiful resin bookmarks (and other bookish stuff) such as this one inspired by Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor.
I obviously asked for books this Christmas and some books that I asked for are the following:
I hope my sister reads my blog and sees the multiple hints I’m not so subty throwing at her.
I love love love candles and some great shops that I previously ordered on closed this year so I have been looking for new shops.
The first candle is from ruthlessheroines and the second one is from CozyCharmingCandles! Sadly these also have very high shipping fees to France but I can’t find French bookish candles boutiques on Etsy with a large selection. My favourite scents are cinnamon, pine, vanilla, citrus and wind (if that makes sense). Still looking for my perfect candle.
I usually buy my stickers on RedBubble inspired by my favourite characters. I want to start a reading journal in 2021 so these stickers might come in handy!

What have you asked for this Christmas? I’m curious! Let me know in the comments!
