Welcome back, Trash Mob! Today we’re talking about all the bookish merch we can’t live without. I’m sharing some of my favorites today, but if I listed out all my collection gear it would go on forever.
As always, here’s the link to the Trash Tuesday blog page if you want to know more.
I know this might be a given for all book nerds, but I have a serious obsession with bookish clothing items. I have sports gear, summer gear, winter gear, and everything in between. I have an entire drawer in my closet that consists solely of book-related t-shirts and I think I might have a slight problem. Check out some of my favorite pieces!
Candles, and Room Sprays, and Essential Oils, Oh My
I have an intense candle and room spray collection based off fictional characters and worlds and it is not weird at all. Who knew Shadowhunters and Rhysand could smell so good (Correct Answer: ME).
Bags, Sleeves…All the Ways to Carry All The Books
I’ve lost count at how many sleeves and tote bags I have that relate to my need to read. I will never stop collecting ways to carry around my books. One can never have to much protection for their precious book covers!

What’s in your trash collection? Anything we have in common? Any items I should add to my current stash?
Welcome back, Trash Mob! Today we’re talking about characters we’re obsessed with and I can’t wait to share mine. As always, here’s the link to the Trash Tuesday blog page if you want to know more.
I tried to keep my post on the shorter side because I didn’t want everyone reading 20-page essays. Now, let’s get trashy.
Jace Herondale, The Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
Um, have I ever mentioned that I am IN LOVE with Jace from The Mortal Instruments. I have Jace art on my shelves and he is and always will be the bad boy for my heart. He’s witty, sarcastic and goes from angsty teenage boy to angsty adult. Did I mention he’s a part-angel demon hunter? And a blonde hottie with a body?
Hermione Granger, Harry Potter by JK Rowling
Let me count the ways I love Hermione. 1) We are both September Virgos. 2) We are both Gryffindors. 3) We are both ISTJ-As (according to 16Personalities). 4) We are both book nerds who need to get our priorities straight. Seriously, Hermione was one of my original idols. She’s strong, sassy, smart, and doesn’t take sh*t from anyone. I relate SO HARD to Hermione and I just want to be like her. Is that too much to ask?
Simon Randell, The Empirium Trilogy by Claire Legrand
SIMON RANDELL IS MY FAVORITE SLYTHERIN. He’s moody, knows how to use those weapons, and can sass talk you for days. If you haven’t read Furyborn, you should. It’s full of broken, complex characters, intense magic and TIME TRAVEL. This artwork is from the Furyborn preorder that I wish I had gotten.

Will you be joining Trash Tuesday? Any prompts you’re hoping to see in the future?
Hey fam, welcome to my newest thing. Before we get into things, I wanted to acknowledge the definition of TRASH that we’ll be using. Thanks to Urban Dictionary, I didn’t need to come up with my own explanation, so to make it easier here’s what it means to be trash. Example: I am complete trash for Shadowhunters…but I digress.
This topic came about when I was discussing my current obsession (hot lumberjack Bear Shifters) with the squad – @Loretta & @Jess. I was jokingly mentioning how I should start a blog theme about all the weird randomness I become trash for and they were super into it. So, here we are! (Shoutout to Loretta for making the awesome banner & logo.)
We’re hoping to make this into a weekly thing with weird open-ended prompts and all (like non-book related things we’re trash for, bad boys, ridiculous covers), so please let us know in the comments if you’re interested in joining the trash mob. To get a feel for what these would be like, keep reading. My first Trash Tuesday is all about T.S. Joyce and her Shifter Series! So, without further ado, here is the latest trash that I am currently trash for.
*Disclaimer: All mentions of “trash” are made in a super loving manner. I love trash books and don’t actually think they’re trash, so haters please move along.
SHIFTER WEREBEARS ARE A THING YOU NEED IN LIFE
T.S. Joyce writes paranormal romance novels about hot lumberjacks and firemen…who turn into bears (and lions, and gorillas and dragons OH.MY.) Seriously, I never thought I needed these in my life but I ended up binging 23 books within the matter of a month. I repeat TWENTY THREE BOOKS IN ONE MONTH. I’m KILLING my Goodreads challenge thanks to this series, and I’m not even done yet. There are like fifty something books that span multiple generations of shifters and you get hot, steamy vibes in them all. What am I doing with my life now? Trying to figure out which shifter I love the most.
I’m also going to take a moment to appreciate the fact that Joyce actually keeps a consistent timeline and plot throughout the entire series and focuses on actual problems/villains they run into instead of just the smut. Don’t get me wrong, the fluff and smut is great, but there’s depth in this series, too. Don’t mind me while I start a fan casting page dedicated to hot lumberjacks.
Please join me in my love for all things shifters. I need a crew and more people to obsess because AKSHDFDKJHSG. I have no words for how trash I’ve become for shifters.
