Book Tag Thursday: Spending A Fake $100



This is a weekly meme hosted by Michelle at Book Adventures, who also tagged me to do this!

So while this isn’t necessarily a book tag it’s still a fun little post to do. This idea came from Cat at The Book Finch who did up a month long meme to help get you out of a blogging slump. She has some pretty wonderful post ideas so head over there and check it out!

So here are the “rules” for this post:

How’s your dream bookshelf looking, sparse? How’s your TBR, overflowing?  Today is National “Go for Broke” Day, and in honor of it I’m metaphorically giving you $100 to buy whatever bookish things you want.  Your job? Let the blogging community know how you would spend that $100.  Remember: Only Bookish Items. 

I will also be linking the titles to the respective websites, so if you see something you like as well you can just click it and go!

Bookish Merchandise

Book Lover’s Scented Soy Candle: The Shire

The Shire - Soy Candle - Book Lovers' Scented Soy Candle - 8oz jar


Oakmoss, clover, aloe, with a hint of sweet cherry pipe tobacco!

Frostbeard has tons of other book themed and book smelling candles. I personally picked The Shire candle because….I love The Hobbit.

Novel Tea


So each box has 5 teabags featuring literary quotes and are made with English Breakfast Tea.

I think these sound like a bit of fun since I do love drinking tea while I read, and having cute little bookish quotes on the teabags are a fun idea.

Portal Bookends

ThinkGeek - Portal Bookends Blue & Orange Portal


I really don’t have enough bookends and these ones are PORTAL. I also really love Portal if you didn’t get that by now. This is a good combo for my book-loving and video game-loving sides.


Cheshire Cat Kindle Paperwhite Case


This is a leather case that fits 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation Kindle Paperwhites.

I’m quite sure about the quality of it since that’s a pretty dang cheap price, but I can’t resist anything with the Cheshire Cat on it. I really can’t.


The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski


Ok, so I just recently read the first two books and I DESPERATELY need the third and final book! Desperately!

Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened by Allie Brosh


Haven’t I already read this book? Yes. Do I still want my own copy to read again and again? Yes. I’d rather use someone else’s money to do it though so it’s a good thing this isn’t my own money.

A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab


No, I haven’t gotten a hold of this book yet unfortunately. It’s a little more expensive than most books so I’ve been having a hard time justifying it to myself. Like I said though this isn’t MY money, it’s fake money! Woohoo! So now I can have this book.

So my total amount spent comes to: $102.19

I’ll take that extra $2.19 out of my own pocket if it gets me all of that stuff though!

So how would YOU spend a fake $100? Let me know if you do this and link it in the comments!

    Those bookends are so cool, but there is like no space on my shelf for the bookends because of the books😅 I LOVE book candles. I should really get some!

      I barely have room as well but I could get rid of my old ones and get these beauties. I’ve never gotten a book candle before and now I’m REALLY wanting them! 🙂

    Oh this was so cute to read! I just put the winner’s kiss on hold at the library and am so excited to read it!! 😉

      Thanks! I don’t think I could wait that long since (if) my library had it the waiting would probably take forever since it’s super popular. I just need to order it and be done because I need it! 🙂

        It IS taking forever, but since I read the first 2 books from the library, it didn’t make sense to me to just buy the 3rd book

      I haven’t heard of those but now I’m definitely going to check them out, also I can’t believe I didn’t think of adding a subscription box! Thanks for stopping by my blog! 🙂

    Frostbeard Candles are so great; I have the Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey one and I quite like it. I’m also currently reading Hyperbole and a Half – it is so good! Great post! 🙂

      I saw that one too! I’m such a sucker for Middle Earth themes though, haha. Glad to hear they’re worth it though. I’m happy you’re enjoying Hyperbole and a Half, I LOVED it. It’s just hilarious. 🙂
