You ever want to know what people are buying in bookstores? Well, it so happens that I work at one, and I wanted to write about what books customers have been asking for during the holiday season. All bookstores are different, so the customers coming in ask for different things. These are just the books the customers in my area asked for. This list isn’t a conclusive list; the books here are the ones that I’ve remembered because I’ve been asked about it a bazillion times or I’ve seen customers holding it.
A year ago today, I created my Christmas wishlist, and coincidentally, this Top Ten, which is “Top Ten books I wouldn’t mind Santa leaving under my my tree this year,” falls on that same day! I’m taking it as a sign of good things are coming my way!
I thought long and hard about the books I hope will be under my tree this year. Making a wishlist is always the hardest—I have to narrow down to things I really really realllllly want—and exciting—so much wonderfulness—thing to do. I’ve tried to narrow the list to ten, but somehow I ended up with twelve. (I cheated a bit too.) :P
Let’s see what books I’m hoping Santa will leave me!
Gobble, gobble, dear friends.
Thanksgiving is upon us, and well, it is a day we give thanks (but mainly it’s to stuff our faces with food and hang out with family).
I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick. Add all of them to your font collection! Let it grow!
I interrupt the regular scheduled You’re Just My Type to bring you glorious holiday printables! Do you have gifts that need tags? Either with the person’s name or a “Merry Christmas” or a “no peeking”? Well, I’ve rounded up beautiful lettering ones that are completely free to use! Just download the pdfs, and off to the printers you go! You don’t have to buy anything except the paper. Life saver!
You didn’t think I’d forget to make my wishlist, did you? I could never forget! It’s always the most exciting and painful thing to put together my wishlist. Here are a list of things I am hoping will be under my Christmas tree. Everything here is something I desperate want because a. they’re cute, b. it’ll complete my book collection, c. it’s insanely gorgeous, or d. the author or book is a fave. I’m pretty sure I’m missing a lot (like clothing and stuff), but these are off the top of my head.
1. Pick of the Critter Bag | 2. Endsinger by Jay Kristoff | 3. Hello Lucky Letterpress Cards | 4. Happy Mail stationery subscription | 5. Lovely and Lush Bag | 6. One Day Notebooks | 7. Persuasion (Vintage Classics) by Jane Austen | 8. Picasso Cats Silk Scarf | 9. The Wicked + The Divine Volume 1 comic | 10. Three Ladies art print | 11. Yes Please by Amy Poehler | 12. The Raven Cycle books by Maggie Stiefvater | 13. The Shadow of the Wind (Penguin Drop Caps) by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (Not pictured)

What Santa said!
From the comforts of my home, I send you holiday cheers! I hope all of you are having a very chill Christmas with lots and lots of presents and love and family. (I know I am!)
Get your last fill of Christmas movies and music! Just enjoy yourself!
