My Latest Bookish Addiction [18] – Book Lover’s Coffee

MLBA

In keeping with the theme of my blog, I decided to start bringing you updates of the newest and greatest bookish addictions in my life so I can share with you some awesomely bookish things or discuss if maybe we share the same bookish loves. It seemed like a great way to get a little discussion going in a very relaxed way.

This Edition’s Bookish Addiction? Book Lover’s Coffee!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a new bookish addiction and the time has never been more perfect since today is my first official day as a rep for Book Lover’s Coffee!

A post shared by Brittany S. (@bookaddictsguide) on

I absolutely love a good coffee and combine that with books? Instant hit! In full disclosure, I would write this even if I weren’t a rep because I just adore this company and their coffee but I was so lucky to have been chosen to officially share some things and spread the word so that’s just a special bonus!

The company is small and awesome, run by shop-owner Shelly out of Michigan. Currently, each bag of coffee is roasted at the time of order, meaning you’ll get the freshest coffee possible! Many bags come as whole bean coffee so you can grind it yourself and keep it even more fresh but you can also request your coffee to be ground if you don’t have a coffee grinder.

Book Lover’s Coffee has some amazing flavors and also some amazing fandom representations! My personal favorite that’s a regular in the shop is Book Haul, a vanilla cinnamon flavor! There are also flavors like Salted Caramel, “Darkling Roast” (a dark roast), and Butterbeer! Shelly always has some awesome seasonal flavors and Hearts & Heroes (chocolate amaretto) is a great choice for Valentine’s Day! You can also grab some small, 2oz samplers that I’ve purchased several times for gifts! She also has some AWESOME Stranger Things coffee up for sale right now and I’m already almost done with my bag of Coffee and Contemplation!

I love the coffee flavors because the additional flavors aren’t too powerful and you can still taste that rich coffee flavor with every bag. It’s not like drinking a super sugary Starbucks drink (although those hold a different special place in my heart) and I still get that awesome coffee taste with some fun flavor additions! The balances are always great and delicious.

The customer service is always fantastic. Shelly is always super quick to reply to any questions I’ve had, the orders ship really quickly, and she’s always super attentive to when I order, sometimes contacting me before my order even ships to let me know it’s heading out! It’s always such a pleasant experience ordering… and of course the coffee is amazing too!

So if that’s convinced you — which I hope it has! — I’m repping for Book Lover’s Coffee all February long! I’ll be posting photos of these wonderful products on Instagram all month (even more so than I already do) and you can use my rep code ADDICT10 to save you some money on your purchase!

Do you love Book Lover’s Coffee already? Excited to give it a try? If you order, let me know what flavors you’re getting!!

My Latest Bookish Addiction [17] – Fandom Bookmarks

In keeping with the theme of my blog, I decided to start bringing you updates of the newest and greatest bookish addictions in my life so I can share with you some awesomely bookish things or discuss if maybe we share the same bookish loves. It seemed like a great way to get a little discussion going in a very relaxed way.

This Edition’s Bookish Addiction? Fandom bookmarks! 

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these since my latest addictions tend to be the same (audiobooks, The Lunar Chronicles, Instagram, more audiobooks…) but lately I’ve been getting more and more into book-related merch! My shelves are STACKED and I always have too many books to read (seriously, when will I ever get through my TBR!) so I’m not as crazy about adding new books to my shelves as I used to be. I just don’t want so many books to go unread and then money going to waste if I never get to them. Instead, I’ve been putting my allotted book money towards merchandise and fandom-related items! They’re wonderful decorations for my shelves and great props for bookstagram photos, plus they just bring me general joy!

I’ve been really getting into bookmarks. I think I love them so much because they’re so beautiful and great expressions of fandoms and they don’t destroy your bank account. I’ve shelled out more money for some heftier bookmarks but for the most part, they’re so affordable and shipping doesn’t kill you either because they can be shipped in an envelope! Here are some of my favorite shops:

fandom bookmarks

  • Marquis du Soleil | Caitlin creates such beautiful water color bookmarks! There’s such a large variety for so many books and the bookmarks themselves are just wonderful. The paper is high quality, designs are beautiful, and shipping is fast!
  • Skinny Hues | I just ADORE these bookmarks. They were some of the first fandom ones that I purchased and they’re always amazing. They ship from Germany but shipping is cheap since it’s just in an envelope so I usually stock up and buy a few at a time!
  • Marked by Mary | Mary’s bookmarks are gorgeous. They’re handlettered and woodburned. I purchased one and simply love it!
  • Behind the Pages | I love Gina’s unique bookmark design! Her bookmarks ship from Australia so shipping (transit) takes a little bit to get to me in the US but she gets them out the door so quickly and I’m always happy with my purchases!

What are your favorite book-inspired bookmarks? Do you have any favorite Etsy (or other) shops?
