Top Ten Books on My Autumn TBR

My Autumn TBR I’m not going to lie, I’m downright awful at making monthly TBRs. I never stick to them. But it does make more sense for me to choose ten or so titles that I’d like to read over a longer period of time. Some I might get to this autumn, others in the winter.

So here’s my Autumn TBR!

1. The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden

I love pretty much anything and everything with witches, so when I saw The Casquette Girls and it’s sequel on Kindle Unlimited with the audiobooks I had to borrow them! I’ll probably listen to them as audiobooks on my walks this fall!

2. Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Excuse me while I Fangirl and flip out because the sequel to Strange the Dreamer is coming out so soon! I love Laini Taylor’s writing and the worlds she creates so I’m super excited to read this book. Continue reading

What you can expect from Amanda’s Nose in a Book!

So in all honesty, I’ve been trying (and not trying) to get this blog back up and running for a while now. A friend suggested that I try a posting schedule to help me stay focused and organized, so I figured that would be a great way to get me posting and talking to all of you lovelies again! I’ve missed you!

Here’s my weekly schedule!

Monday

Mondays can be rough for people, so I’ve decided that Mondays will be a great day to start off the week with a book review, a book chat, or something fun and bookish. Let’s not hate Mondays together!

Tuesday

This is my day to share Top Ten lists. This might be a Top Ten Tuesday feature. Or it might be a list of my own making. Either way, this is a great day to find fun, new reads for yourself. Continue reading

Hello and welcome to my Bookish Holiday Gift Guide.

If you’re shopping for a book lover in your life this list will help you find some fun bookish goodies that every reader will love. Feel free to check out the shops I’ve mentioned on both Instagram and on their websites.

4. Book sleeves!

These lovely creations protect our books while they’re in our bag or whatever we carry them around in every day! So every book lover should have one to protect our precious paperbacks. They come in all sizes, so some are even big enough to fit hardcover books too!

The Cozy LifeBookish Holiday Gift Guide

The Cozy Life’s booksleeves are durable and Steffani’s shop is restocked often. She uses a variety of prints, including seasonal ones, and ones that can be used year-round.

One thing I love about The Cozy Life booksleeves is that you can find one to fit everyone’s needs! They come in three different sizes: one perfect for tablets, e-readers, and small paper back. The Pine Cozies can fit paperbacks and some hardcovers. And the Redwood Cozies are meant to fit hardcover books.

These booksleeves are beautiful and come in a variety of different colors, all with the beautiful compass button closure, sure to keep all of your precious books protected when you take them on all of your adventures.

5. Coffee and/or Tea

One thing book lovers like when they’re reading or writing is a nice, warm cup of something yummy. I bet you didn’t know that there were shops that sell bookish teas and coffees!

Book Lovers Coffee is some of the best coffee I’ve ever tasted. You can purchase it whole bean, or ground in a variety of different flavors. It always is delivered to your door, freshly roasted and full of tasty coffee perfection.

Shelly, the owner, has some delicious holiday flavors in their shop right now, along with some Harry Potter themed coffees, and some amazing roasts (Classic Roast is my absolute favorite).

 

 

6. Mugs

Speaking of warm beverages, we love mugs and things to drink them in! You can find many bookish shops on Society 6 or RedBubble, but here are some shops with beautiful bookish mug designs!

Stella’s Bookish ArtBookish Holiday Gift Guide

Stella’s artwork is gorgeous and features bookish quotes, images, and more. In her Society 6 shop, you can find all of her colorful and vibrant designs on ceramic and travel mugs, so there’s a perfect choice for every bookworm. One thing I love about Stella’s designs is that they pop. They are so detailed and colorful. She pays attention to every detail that goes into her work.

Stella also has an Etsy store where you can purchase bookmarks and prints of her gorgeous designs!

Designer Evie Seo is another bookish artist whose work is always beautiful. She uses gorgeous graphics and favorite quotes from the books we love to create lovely bookish designs. One thing I love about her work is that she uses quotes from recent books as well as classics. If you’re not sure what your literary friend likes the most, you can always find mugs with fun bookish sayings on them. There are both ceramic mugs and travel mugs with her designs in Evie’s Society 6 shop!
