In case you didn’t know, Bookworm Problems is my new blogging series! Here, you can read about all of the problems I face day to day in my bookish life!

Handbag shopping. It’s dangerous, and not just because of the amount of money I can easily spend. It’s also dangerous because I’ve gone home way too often with a new handbag that is too small to fit a paperback into!

I love cute tiny handbags. They’re always in pretty colours and have cute designs. They’re my ideal handbag at first glance.

But then I realise how impractical they are. How am I supposed to fit a paperback into this adorable mini backpack I bought?

To everyone else, this wouldn’t be a problem. They can have absolutely whatever handbag they want without worrying about the size. I’d love to be able to carry a little tiny handbag around.

But I also love taking a book everywhere with me, and we all know which one wins out of those two.

The all-important question:

Do you buy for style or practicality? Let me know in the comments!

    1. I wish I was that organised to always take one with me! I almost always have a book with me in my bag unless I’ve seen a handbag I like, then I’ve never got one 😂

  1. This is so true! I have a few smaller bags that I’ll use from time to time but the number one issue with them is that I can’t fit my book! 📚


    1. I actually bought a beautiful bag a couple of years ago that looks exactly like a hardback of Alice in Wonderland. It’s gorgeous. And even though it’s a bag made to look like a book, you still can’t fit a book in it! You’d at least think with something like that the designer would consider bookish people 😂 so I hardly use that one now

  2. I mostly buy for practicality, because I’m a student and always have a million things to carry around, but I also try and find the nicest designs! I recently got a gorgeous Alice In Wonderland backpack from Cath Kidston that’s really roomy, so great in both ways!

    1. Ooh I’ve just got the Alice in Wonderland tote bag from Cath Kidston and I love it because it’s so big I can fill it with everything! Their bags are so practical!


  3. Practicality first, because I don’t have a lot of time and money, and then style. I don’t do well with tiny bags because I always feel like I’ll forget to bring something, which means a lot of my bags can fit book(s). :))
