A few weeks ago, I dived into Etsy to look for some bookish swag. I wasn’t looking for anything specific, but I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that the Ninth House fandom was thriving in the digital marketplace. Leigh Bardugo’s dark academia book is pretty popular. I mean, it even won Goodreads Best Books of 2019 in the fantasy category. I certainly count myself among its fans. Plus, Leigh tweeted a little over two years ago that she would happily write at least five books for Ninth House’s protagonist Alex Stern. But there hasn’t really been any news since — we don’t even have a publication date for book two. Which has left a gaping snake-shaped hole in all our hearts.
I’ve always said that my favorite way to fill the holes left behind by books is with bookish merch. Seriously, I love having a bookmark, mug, or sweatshirt that reminds me of my favorite books. So, knowing I would find more than one thing that would make me go “take my money!” — I decided to take a deeper dive into Etsy to find as many Ninth House gifts as I could find.
So without further ado, here are 11 Ninth House gifts for fans of Leigh Bardugo’s book.
