Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Merchandise I’d Love To Own

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Merchandise I’d Love To Own

I wasn’t necessarily planning on doing another one of these posts for a while, but when I saw the prompt, I couldn’t resist. So, this won’t be a traditional Top Ten Tuesday post for me. If I wanted to, I could just list fandoms I want to see merch for or types of merch I’d love to see more of. I could even scour the internet and find specific items.

Empress Margaraux wished on a star to have her daughters, and she trained them to bring down the other monarchies.
