Soy candles to satisfy every reader’s heart.

With generic bookish candles like “Book Club” with scents of wine, cozy fire, and books… to specific collections like the Ravenclaw inspired candle, “Intelligent” which is a lovely combination of tea blend, books, and parchment.

What better way to decorate your house than to use the books you already own? With never-ending book sales, garage sales, and thrift stores, it is easy to acquire books both to look pretty and to read. Personally, I love having stacks of vintage books throughout the house. And if you are looking for “Bookish Books” here are a couple recommendations:

An easy way to show off your bookish pride is to subscribe to Fandom of the Month. Curious? Here is what they have to say about their boxes: Fandom Jewelry Surprises! Every month comes with 3-4 handpicked fandom inspired jewelry items, with a surprise theme! Examples include: Earrings, necklaces, rings (size 7 or adjustable), bracelets, keychains, and pins. Each month our jewelry comes in a hand screen printed muslin drawstring bag. An adorable custom box, a custom postcard and a custom magnet.

The Bookish Box is a monthly subscription box with literary themes. They have loads of customizable options. Each month they have a different theme.

My favorites have been the Doctor Who and Harry Potter boxes.

  • The Hobbit - “Far over the Misty Mountains cold” (ETSY)

  • Lord of the Rings - “Not all who wander are lost” (ETSY)
