List Of Awesome: 5 Must-Haves For A Wonderfully Bookish Christmas

list of awesome

Hey, bookworms! Merry Christmas to each and everyone of you. Y’all are probably out and about, following your Christmas traditions, huh? Anyway, on this special holiday, I’ve decided to list down some essentials to make this Christmas a more bookish one! Check em out:

christmas read

Truly a must! Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is a classic- a Christmas story that is remembered by all. It was my Christmas read last year! Still, a Christmas read doesn’t have to be set during Christmas. As long as you have something to read, your bookish Christmas is pretty much solved.
coffeeBring out that book mug! I know you have one! Whether it’s a mug with a cool bookish statement/design or a mug you use whenever you read a book, bring it out, fill it with coffee (other options are tea and hot choco), and drink the awesomeness of Christmas. You know you want to!
christmas sweaterBaby, it’s cold outside… sweater weather, oh yes! While you cozy up to your book and yummy drink, stay warm(er) and wear that spiffy Christmas sweater your grandma gave you last year. Or the year before that! Christmas sweaters are never out of fashion when it’s Christmas. ;-)
christmas decorWho doesn’t love pretty Christmas decor? Know what’s better? Pretty bookish Christmas decor! Make a special Christmas ball for your fave book and hang it on your Christmas tree!


We bookworms love book gifts, don’t we? Maybe you’re the one receiving or you’re the one giving, but book gifts for Christmas are pretty freaking great. They’re the best, actually!

Now tell me- Is your Christmas a bookish one? What are your must-haves for a bookish Christmas?

From me to you:

merry christmas

    I’ve read A Christmas Carol a long time ago, but I watch the movie (the one produced in the 90s) every winter. I just love it and I agree that it is a must. Also, I love mugs! I plan on personalizing several of them with bookish themes/quotes, especially a Harry Potter one. :D Merry Christmas!

    I’ve read A Christmas carol one time, but wasn’t blown away by it. I enjoy watching the movies though :D! I really want a mug and more bookish elements, like the HP Christmas ball.

    Cute post! I’ve never actually read A Christmas Carol before, but I’ve seen the play like 10 times or something crazy like that (my parents used to be ushers). I kinda wore myself out on that one, haha, so now I really don’t want to read it. But I did read Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares this December, which is definitely a Christmas book! So yay me :)

    I haven’t really read A Christmas Carol before, I know I’m so horrible. lol. But, I have watched the movie (the old timey version of it) and absolutely fell in love with it. I haven’t read a Christmas themed book yet, but the next one on my list is definitely Dorothy Shackleford’s (Blake Shelton’s mother) book, Time for Me to Come Home. It’s based on the hit song that he and his mother wrote together and the synopsis of it makes me want to tuck into it right away.

    I LOVE bookish Christmas decor. :) I also love that ornament you had pictured. Great list! I agree, they are five must haves for a wonderful bookish Christmas.

    I love that image of the Christmas jumpers. We don’t seem to have really nice ones here!
