October #ShelfLove Challenge: Bookish Gift Wishlist



October topic: Christmas is two months away! What books or bookish gifts are on your wish list this year?
This month's #ShelfLove discussion theme is bookish gift wishlists. When it comes down to it aren't all our wishlists pretty much the same? All the books to read and all the time to read them? :) But that's taking the easy way out so instead I'm going to share some of my favorite bookish reading rooms. Because if you're going to wish, wish BIG, right? ;-)

I'm not sure which I like more... 
the floor-to-ceiling bookcase or the pink chaise.  :)


Again, it just might be the chaise that I'm loving but even so 
those shelves are seriously impressive!


I have it on good authority that window seats are not nearly as comfortable as you might think but I don't care... this reading area looks super cozy.


This one looks incredibly cozy.


Does the spectacular view come with the room?


Because a bookshelf door that leads into a secret reading room is EPIC!

What's on your bookish wishlist?

  1. OOHHHH I LOVE ALL OF THESE SHELVES AND ROOMS! CAN I HAVE THEM?? PLEEASSE? I seriously want a shelf like this, heck, I'll take any one of them and call it a day. I especially like the one with the pretty view and the one that has a secret reading space inside of the already epical shelf! <3

    1. I know, right?! We can both dare to dream. :) I mean, I have a dedicated reading room/library - and I love it - but it sure doesn't look like any of these rooms! LOL

  2. I had a feeling that those window seats wouldn't be comfy, but damn it they look cool!

    1. Don't you just love the look of a window seat?! But I have a friend who has one and she insists they're horribly uncomfortable. *sigh*

  3. I LOVE The one with the hidden door (so perfect). I remember Holly Black and Cassandra Clare talking about hidden libraries and how one of them installed one in their own house with a secret door after they became an author and sold their books. I can't remember which one of them it was though!
    All of these are fantastic!

    1. I love that one, too! And I'm now totally jealous of Holly or Cassandra... whichever one has the hidden library. That would be so amazing!

  4. I can see window seats being uncomfortable, especially the smaller ones, but they look so cozy I don't even care! I'd take one! I love that one in pic #3, and the alcove in #4 looks awesome. #5 is phenomenal, the whole room (but yes the view too), and the secret reading room- yeah. How awesome would that be?

    1. LOL I'm with you, Greg... I don't care if the window seats aren't 100% comfy. I want one anyway! The one in pic #3 is probably my favorite, too. :)
