8 Books That Need More Bookish Merch

Header Image (84)

So I was thinking this the other day and now have decided to make a post about it. So in this case by merch I am referring to bookmarks, magnetic bookmarks, stickers, prints, candles and everything that bookstagramers buy off Etsy. This is going to be a list of books or series that I think either need merch or just need more of it.

For candles, I only shop from Australian Candle companies because the shipping from overseas is just something I can’t afford to be using my money on. But unless they have crazy shipping prices I do buy from overseas for bookmarks, stickers, prints and magnetic bookmarks as they are light weight small packages, so the shipping is fairly cheap. So some of these may be more Aussie companies need more merch for these series! I have searched on

I searched on Etsy for all of these as I was going along to see if I actually was right and not missing something before adding them to this list.



1. Vampire Academy & Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead

There is a little bit of merch to this. I just bought 4 bookmarks from Bookmark Library which were Vampire Academy characters. They are the first ones I had ever seen so I just had to grab them! I’ll leave a pic below of them. This is one of my favourite series so I really wish there was more for it! I want an Adrian scented candle, I need that in my life!

2. The Medoran Chronicles by Lynette Noni

This is a new favourite series of mine by an Australian author and it’s absolutely amazing! I would love magnetic bookmarks of Alex, Bear, Jordan, D.C., Roka, Kyia, Zain & Niyx! Oh and also one of Xira, that would be so cute! There are also some awesome quotes in this series!

3. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

For this series, I have only found 1 magnetic bookmark from EpikPage but that is it. This series is fairly popular and it’s an amazing series that is now getting turned into a movie! I hope with the movie there will be more stuff coming out for this series!

4. Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

There is a lot of jewelry for this series but I’ve only found 1 magnetic bookmark set on Bonitismoland and a few actual bookmarks. But considering how popular this series is and even if you haven’t read it you have more than likely heard of it at least. This could also be a fun series to do stuff with, with all the crazy abilities they have!

5. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

I know this is a new series and will take a while to get more stuff like this but it is still one I want more of. This has become a lot of people favourite for this year, so I hope we will get more. There is a few ‘Weep’ candles popping up but unfortunately they are all international companies and there isn’t any I have found on Aussie candle companies yet. There is also a few normal bookmarks with some of the amazing quotes this book offers but there is no magnetic character bookmarks as yet. This is another series that would be awesome to design with the powers of certain characters! I think the title of Girl on fire may have changed hands? 😜

6. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

I love this series so damn much and there are a few bookmarks for this series and 1 candle for Miera that I have found, but that is all. I would love some magnetic bookmarks of the characters of this book! And candles for the lands of Primoria. There are similar candles for the courts of the ACOTAR series as in this book there is also Winter, Summer, Autumn and Spring and then also Yakim, Ventralli, Paisly & Cordell.

7. The Trylle Trilogy & The Kanin Chronicles by Amanda Hocking

These are two companion series and they are an amazing series and there is 0 bookmarks, candles or anything else for this series. This is underrated and unknown series to most people, so I get why there isn’t stuff for this series but I wish there was!

8. Divergent by Veronica Roth

There are tonnes of jewelry for this series and a few bookmarks but that is about it. There is one set of magnetic bookmarks with the symbols of the 5 factions on NewLeaf but that is the only magnetic bookmarks. I know a fair few people weren’t happy with the movie of this but I still love the books. I haven’t even watched the Allegiant movie yet. But I’m surprised there isn’t more stuff for this series.



Well, that is all for today’s post. I thought I would do just a random post that wasn’t my usual Reviews, Down the TBR Hole, Top Ten Tuesday, Top 5 Wednesday & Tags. Let me know if you want more of these random posts!

Goblet of Fire Print

IMG_3120

See below the two variations that could have came. I like both prints but I think the one I got was my favourite. You can see in the photo above that in the background of the coloured flames is the towers of the Quidditch Pitch which I think is a tool addition.

Also in the front of the book GeekGear has added the following note

“Over the last few months we have made some amazing changed – one being out Prints! These are now ALL Licensed exclusives approved by Warner Bros and exclusive to us!’

So that’s cool!

Exclusive Pin Series!

IMG_3115

Start collecting with our first ever No. 0001 World of Wizardry Pin!

So by the sound of that there will be a pin in each box from now on! Which is awesome and if they are all as cute as this one I will be happy! Also there was 3 variations that you could have gotten of this pon! There was Classic which is just the normal 1, there was the Silver edition that was 1 in 50 & Gold which is 1 in 100! So that was awesome that I got the Silver one when I never get the exclusive items!

The Shirt.

FullSizeRender 137

I honestly don’t like this shirt. The colouring I think is what is weird for me because the blue is too dark and the brown kinda colour is just a bit weird. On the Ravenclaw House logo on Pottermore the Raven is a darker brown but the crest behind it is Blue and silver.. So I don’t know, the colours just don’t look right to me. You can see in the booklet photo below this, the design which would have been on the other house’s shirts!.

The Booklet!

IMG_3121



Well that is all for this months GeekGear World of Wizardry box! I really liked this book except the shirt, I wish I had got any of the other houses as they all looked awesome, just Ravenclaws didn’t look right to me. And even though I’m not a Slytherin or Hufflepuff I would have worn those shirts if I had received them because they look cool. But the Ravenclaw one will be put in a giveaway at some point.

Top Ten Tuesday – Harry Potter Merchandise I Wish I Owned

Screen Shot 2017-04-04 at 3.35.02 pm

Top Ten Tuesday is a monthly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and you can find all the info and upcoming prompts Here.

This week’s prompts is: Fandom Freebie — top ten fandoms I’m in, 10 reasons X fandom is the best, must have merchandise for x fandom, etc. etc.

So I’m going with Harry Potter merchandise that I wished I owned! I have a fair bit of Harry Potter stuff, but there are so many things I wish I had and especially some things that are just so hard to get in Australia because shipping from official Warner Bros and similar sites are a bit crazy! Also most of these will be things that I just would not buy because of price. I wouldn’t spend that much on a single item that I quite simply wouldn’t use.


1. Wands!

I’m pretty sure that this is something all Harry Potter fans want to own! I do have 3 wands at the moment but none of them are the official ones and they aren’t exactly correct. I have Voldemort & Harry’s wands that I received from the GeekGear World of Wizardry Box, they are really good quality but they aren’t the proper ones and they aren’t exact copies, for example the voldemort wand from GeekGear is bright white but his wand should actually be a cream and brown colour. I also have Sirius Blacks wand, I got this from Wish which is a similar site to eBay and AliExpress if you don’t know what it is. This one only cost me under $20 AUD I think and it’s not perfect of course. It is a light up one but the piece where the batteries were was broken so I had to do a little DIY work on that and it’s also not really the right colour either, but I’m going to try and paint it with a better colour!

2. Gringott’s Coin Collection

3. Brooms

4. The Horcruxes

PRP HP 7968

PRP HP 8177

PRP HP 7247

5. Food!

Granted these wouldn’t last long! But I still wish I could get them!

6. Sorcerer’s Stone

PRP HP 7386

7. Gryffindor Hoodie

8. Stationary

9. Gryffindor Banner

10. Harry Potter Funko Collection

I already have a few Funko’s in this collection, but there is so many more I want!

I already have Hermione in Yule Ball outfit, Neville with Trevor, Harry in Triwizard outfit, Ron in Yule Ball outfit, Cedric in Triwizard outfit, Draco in Quidditch robe with broom, Harry with Quidditch robe with nimbus, Dumbledore, Bellatrix in Azkaban outfit, Fred & George, Lucius in Death Eater Mask and Ron in Weasley jumper.


Well that is all for today! This was such an easy and fun post!
