Dreaming Novel Things is a feature in which I discuss book related subjects, but in a creative way. I’ll use interviews, narratives and lists to talk about book trends, book opinions and bookish matters. If you have any book related subjects you’d like to see me discuss just leave me a comment below!
I don’t know if I’ve already mentioned this before but my very first set of book ends, were red and Dr. Seuss themed. And boy, did I love them. I dug them out of the memorabilia boxes in the garage and seeing them made me do a massive search on Pinterest, subject: book ends. Here are some of the coolest ones I found.
If you don’t know this about me already, you should know now. I LOVE DOGS! This is one is adorable, but I think if I bought it I would decorate it a bit… maybe. It’s one of those things where you feel it needs SOMETHING but you don’t want to add that something and find that you ruined it.
This one makes me think of those claymation movies that take a LONG time to make but are truly pieces of art. Great for all fans of sea creatures. (See, if this one was white, I would leave it just the way it was and place Moby Dick within its ends. Just for kicks). 😉
Come on! How much cooler does it get to see the two ultimate super heroes battle out on opposite sides of our books? This one is a must have! .
All of these are really interesting. I especially lovethe dinosaur one, as I’ve always been fascinated with dinosaurs since Jurassic Park and The Land Before Time. That cannon ball one is awesome too.
This one’s cool because it’s a pretty accurate description of bookworms, our heads are always stuck in books!
It’s the Nightmare Before Christmas! This is where you would keep all of your horror novels that have that Christmas feeling at the same time… right? 😉
I’ll admit, I did a bit of a happy dance when I found out this existed. Probably the most epic book end ever created and as such only deserves epic books within its confines.
This gold skull book end is creepy yet elegant. For all your creepy and elegant needs. 😉
So if you didn’t know already elephants are the coolest animal on the planet. They have long memories and long trunks and make the cuties babies on Earth. Though these don’t look too sturdy, if you’re collecting the coolest book ends ever, this is a must have.
This is so ridiculous that I love it. I would fit MANY books to make it as wide as possible. I’m thinking… mantle piece focal point…
For as much as I love the pig for its ridiculousness I love this for its simplicity. I could imagine having many sets of these around the house to showcase many genres I enjoy.
For all the science fiction geeks out there, here’s a book end set that will warm your heart.
Oh how often we start off a book with anticipation and then end only to ask, “WHAT? HOW COULD YOU END IT LIKE THAT?” This set should be required of every self-proclaimed bookworm.
I feel like this is just the tip of the ice burg, there are so many other great book end sets out there! What are some of your favorites? Share below and happy reading!
