Greetings booklovers! I’m here with a brand new spring edition of “Literary Wishlist” with my special guest, YA Author Jannette Fuller! This is the second time we have been able to collaborate with one another, and I’m so excited to have her on my blog today! 🙂 You can find more information about Jannette and chat with her books here.
Spring is around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited. What about you? The thought of waking up to nature’s song—the sound of birds chirping outside the window—and walking underneath the clear blue skies as the trees and flowers begin to bloom, makes us happy.
So with that said, we’d like to share my top picks of fun bookish/literary items for the spring. Bye-bye winter blues!

My Personal Picks
Ampersand Stud Earrings
Source: Etsy-Paper Heart Daily/Price $12.95
Ampersand just happens to be my favorite punctuation mark (go figure, it must be an English major thing) so I would love to own these! They are colorful and quirky, plus pastels are great for spring. These earrings are a stylish way to brighten up any outfit.
Hand Painted Teapot

I love this hand painted teapot created by the Etsy shop roootreee! I’m such a massive tea drinker and I’ve always wanted to own a classic, porcelain teapot such as this. The painted flowers are absolutely gorgeous and if this doesn’t make you think of spring, I don’t know what will!
True Happiness Come From Good Books Sweatshirt

A comfy cotton sweatshirt is perfect for those not quite warm, and slightly chilly spring days. This shirt pattern is also available in a variety of styles (ex. tank tops, hoodies) and colors too. The quote featured on this shirt couldn’t be truer for booklovers. 🙂
DIY Book Vase

What is a better way to brighten up any room in your home than with fresh flowers? This clever DIY book vase looks beautiful and easy to make. An added bonus is that you can use many materials that you probably own so it’s very inexpensive to make. I’m always looking for bookish DIY projects to try, and this looks like fun!
