Top 5 Tuesday: Reading Accessories

Top 5 Tuesday is a fun, weekly meme that asks you to pick 5 books that fit that week’s theme. It was created by Bionic Bookworm and is currently being hosted by Meeghan Reads. You should check out their wonderful blog for more details and the list of prompts!

Hello, reader!

Happy Top 5 Tuesday! It’s been a lovely day here in New England, which always puts me in a good mood. It definitely puts me into a good reading mood, as well! For this week’s post, I’ll be talking about my favorite reading accessories. I honestly don’t use a lot of reading accessories, but I definitely have five that I enjoy, even if I sometimes forget I have them 😂

That being said, let’s get to the list!


Bookmarks are definitely my all time favorite reading accessories! I used to use whatever was handy to mark my reading progress. And then I realized how beautiful bookmarks could be. I swear the bookmark industry upped their in the past decade because now I collect them simply because they are lovely! The last Illumicrate box I received had a set of bookmarks with character art from The Gilded Wolves that were simply stunning and now I want to use them all the time. This is not to say I still won’t use a random receipt now and then, but bookmarks are my go-to.

#2. Book Sleeves

This is a reading accessory I got into more recently and I fully blame book boxes for this new addiction. I’ve received some absolutely gorgeous book sleeves from both OwlCrate and Illumicrate! They’re also wonderful for someone like me who brings a book with me everywhere but is also very clumsy. Now, if I accidentally drop my book while walking, it’s protected. Honestly, they are a lifesaver. And, again, they’re also just pretty. I love pretty things!
