January Literary Accessory

It’s one thing to buy books for those who love to read, but it’s a whole other level discovering book inspired accessories. Personally, I am a huge fan. Even if it’s a bookmark of a beloved childhood character or a witty reinvented cover for a Kindle, there are just some things out there in the world (or on the Internet) that should be seen. Every month I’ll bring to light a company that offers something that readers of Young Adult Fiction might enjoy. 

For January, I must pay credit to Bruce over at thebookshelfgargoyle, his holiday gift guide for 2012 bright to light an amazing company called The Literary Gift Company. On his list was a bracelet and I simply fell in love.

UK price: £12.99

USA price: $21.20

It’s one of my favourite things I bought last year and it’s also a great conversation starter. Captain Underpants was a banned book? Why and yes and let’s discuss why or why not you think that’s right or wrong. 

Not into jewellery? Have a look around The Literary Gift Company, they’ve got something for every budget and their delivery is swift! It’s the little touches that give such sparkle to everyday life. Until next month! 

My Holiday Wish List 2012

It’s nearly Christmas! Back home I had a wonderful tree with all of my childhood and grown up ornaments that I would put up every year. I’ve wrap all the gifts for my friends and family and put them under the tree. The perfect Christmas cheer corner! 

Sadly, I wasn’t able to bring my tree over to the UK, or any of my ornaments. Oh well, in my flat we do have tree with a few gifts to brighten up the cold living room. (The heating doesn’t really work…)

Here’s what I’m hoping is under the tree for me (or arriving in the post) this year! What kinds of books are hoping to unwrap this holiday season?? Because there should be LOADS!

Reached Cover

I have been DYING to read this series and the final book was published last month! With such stand out covers, they’d be the perfect stocking stuffers! Find out what they’re about here.  Luckily, all titles are available at my local library so next year it can be easy enough to get them read!

I’ve heard mixed things about this book. Due to this I still really want to make my own opinion about it. Plus the cover is so spectacular, I can’t shy away from it! Find the description here.

Promised Cover

This is the last in a series that I started this year and truth be told I want this book most of all! Find the description for the first book here. Find my review here

Croak Cover

Lastly, this was a recommendation from the Seattle Public Library. I really liked the premise of the book and have been patiently hoping it would come to the libraries here. Sadly this isn’t the case, but it’s on my radar and I know, one day I’ll get it read. Find the description here. 

 

That’s all for now readers! May you have a few literary treasures under tree, near the menorah or whatever festival holiday you celebrate. Let’s enjoy the days off and read away!
