Our shop will be reopening on December 26th. 🎉We were debating on when to open but with all the craziness around Christmas shipping we just decided to push it until after Christmas. 🤗What are your guys' thoughts on the new Fantastic Beasts movie?? I love the name "The Crimes of Grindelwald". The poster for it looks so cool, especially how they snuck in the deathly hallows. 🙊
What is your favorite of the Harry Potter movies?

My winter rep search has been posted and I’ll be announcing and listing January’s monthly box later this afternoon (probably around 4pm MST?). Alongside the monthly box I’ll also be announcing January’s candle of the month! If you buy them together, they will ship together which means you’ll have to wait a little bit longer! There will be a limited quantity of both so I wouldn’t wait too long before grabbing one for yourself!

Sneak peak for the box: one of the candles will be closely related to the one pictured here! 🙈

Do you decorate your bookshelves for the holidays? I love the lights and garland on Haya’s bookcase in this photo (and I spy some of our candles!). 🎄📚

I've been wanting to read this small collection of Lurlene McDaniel stories for YEARS. So finally I bought the book on my kindle last week and started it a couple of days ago. Well. Last night I finished it and, honestly? As a whole, it was kind of disappointing. Each story was better than the last so at least the entire thing wasn't a monotonous disappointment, but STILL. Bummer. Oh well, the stories did have some sweet moments so at least I got to read those. Plus, that's another book read for the year so yay!
“I've been down the darkest alleys
Saw the dark side of the moon
To get to you, to get to you” -Selena Gomez, Wolves 🎶 .
For some reason, I always think about this series when I hear Wolves by Selena Gomez. It probably has to do with the fact that I was reading this entire series when the song came out, but I also think it may have to do with the hardships the main character went through just to save the world and her love.
In other news, I finishes A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro. I gave it a 3/5 because I felt like the story just jumped around a lot and it lost me a few times. It also just wasn’t such a captivating book for me as I thought it was going to be. Maybe mystery just isn’t my genre. .
I’m really going to try to upload my reviews to my blog soon! I’m so far behind right now! But I do have reviews up for other books that are spoiler free until you reach the part of the review where I cut it off and tag it as a spoiler section. Link is in my bio! Please check it out. It would mean a lot to know people want to see what I have to say❤️
QOTD: Are there certain songs that you associate with a book/book series?
Hello @wickandfable!! I'm excited and rather nervous to put my hat into the ring for the chance to be one of your reps. There are not a lot of candles that have caught my attention but yours have done that! I love the names, scent descriptions, and packaging. They are so charming and adorable. I'm still getting into bookish merchandise and candles are high on my WANT list. I'd love to help your business grow while learning more about your company and products.❣️
A little about me: I'm an avid YA reader (I just hit 400 books read for the year) that lives in Houston with my husband and three cats (Bacon, Mousse, and Oreo). I post to my IG daily and am getting better at my stories. I try every day to make my time line and photos better. I really would love, love, *love* a chance to rep your candles! Thank you for the opportunity! ❣️
Here's my unboxing of the October @flickthewick "School of Wizardry" box!
I know, I know, it's super late. October and November were incredibly busy months for me and I was always rushing around trying to make things work. I did have on time unboxing photos for this box but I really hated them and wanted to retake them and only just now had time. But I really like these photos so it's okay by me.
As always I thought the box was amazing! I'm always super impressed by the things in here.
Include in the box:
•4oz Hogwarts Kitchens candle
• 2oz candles called Triwizard Tournament, Marauder's Map, Alohomora Spellbook, and Wizard's Wand
•Honeydukes sugar scrub
•cotton drawstring bag with artwork from @tjlubrano
•a fat double sided bookmark with the Luna artwork by @gloria.isgro and the quote side by @dreamyandco (which I just realized I did not photograph the other side 🤦🏼♀️)
•art print and buttons designed by @dreamyandco
Favorite candle would have to be Hogwarts Kitchens, it just smells so good! Favorite other item I think has to be the bookmark.
I'm tired. So tired. I worked 9am-6pm without pause. Tomorrow is the last creation day before all the holiday orders ship. Im exhausted. Fingers crossed for a good night sleep.
I love you all. Bare with me. Xoxo
To my amazing customers and friends: I'm working nonstop. I have 3 day shipping and orders will be shipped on or before the 19th. I would prefer to respond to everyone individually (because yes, I love to talk. Lol) but that's the problem. I ramble when I could be working. I am even making candles as I type. I have chunks drying and finished candles setting. I literally am not stopping. I know these are gifts! 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄
Shadowsong. I've read this book 1/2 through in stolen moments & quickly devouring words with my morning coffee. Omg. The candles that I am going to create. @sjaejones ... you are like one of the great music composers but your music is in words. Your book is a song. I'm blown away by the raw- beautiful - words of your heart.
40% off orders of $30 or more. No code needed. (Please don't use any rep codes though. Im a tiny, small business.) Okay. Back to packing Christmas orders.
Over and Out... #bookworm#booklover#bookaddict#bookaholic#read#reading#love#ya#yalit#yareads#book#books#bookstagram#bookstagrammer#booksta#bookstagramfeature#lunalovegood#harrypotter#emmawatson#hermoinegranger#pumpkin#voldemort#voldy#shelfie#bookishcandles#candlesale
"When everyone knows you’re a monster, you needn’t waste time doing every monstrous thing." - Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows
So I made it home! 🎉 And I also managed to do the @fairyloot #OhSoRegal unboxing, so do check that out on my story or highlights if you're interested! It was such a good box and I hope I can get the January one!
The candle shown is one from @bookandnookshop and it smells so good I almost don't want to burn it! 😂🙈
QOTD: Do you collect bookish merch? If so, what?
Anyway, I was tagged by @teuchter_ramblings to complete the #weatherinbooks tag a while ago and I am finally getting to it! .
☀️ Sunshine (A Book That Makes You Happy) - Any of the books from the Percy Jackson series make me smile.
☔️ Rain (A Book With A Happy Ending) - I've spoken about this book a few times but Will Grayson, Will Grayson just warms my heart.
❄️ Snow (A Book You Couldn't Put Down) - I think this one is pretty obvious if you've been watching my story updates this week but I'm going to say it anyway, The Last Magician.
☁️ Blizzard (A Book That You Had High Expectations For) - I might not always like John Green's books but I always go into them with high expectations so I'd have to say Turtles All The Way Down.
Hi @wickandfable - My name is Erin and I’m a 28 year old bookworm from Texas and I LOVE your candles. Fun story, you were actually the first bookish candle shop I ever ordered from. THEN I became friends with my lurve @suey_library and she got me addicted 😂😂. I want to be a rep for you because I’ve heard amazing things from Becky about working with you, LOVE your candles, and really think that I would be great at it! I feature a candle in almost every picture I take, and have so much fun unboxing them (my unboxings are a hot mess which I’m told is fun to watch). My January unboxing is sure to be an entertaining disaster 😂. I post once a day and interact with all of my amazing followers every chance I get. I’ve grown a ton since I joined Bookstagram in October and hope to keep growing. Thank you so much for hosting this rep search - best of luck!! #wfrepsearch3#bookish#bookishcandles#bookishmerch#bookstagram#bookstagrammer#booknerd#bookworm#booknerdigans#booknerdigan
Today was the best day ever!!!! I was at work this morning and say the results for the @littlemousebookshelf rep search and I was selected!! Needless to say I squealed and my client thought I was crazy, but her hair looked amazing! I posted a pic in my stories so you can see what I do all day! Anyways my rep term is January-March and I’m so excited!!
Day 16 #booksunderthemistletoe17 is Harry Potter I had to show off my Minerva candle from @belleandcocandlemakers and my bookmark from @drawntothepages
I’m off to see Star Wars so I hope you all have a great night! I might post later depending on how the night goes☺️ I still have a couple of challenges to post for.
Our January 'Adventures in Ketterdam' sneak peek is here! This box will include a design by @reverieandink 💕 We have been admiring her work for so long and can't wait for everyone to see what she came up with. 🙊 I can't even explain to you guys how excited we are for this box! While it is sold out, our February box will be on sale in two weeks on January 1st and we think you all will love this theme as well. 💗
Who is your favorite designer/illustrator here on instagram?
Day 16 of the #circleofbookishfriends Have Yourself a Scerry Little Christmas Challenge is Bookish Candles. .
I used to love candles. Now I only get bookish candles if they come in a subscription box. This yummy candle was included in The Nocturnal Reader’s Box. Occasionally I will burn them for a photo, but then I blow them out after a couple of minutes and have to open some windows. I would love to buy and burn more candles, but when you have parrots you have to give some things up. .
Parrots have super sensitive respiratory systems. Tragedies occurs too easily when people own parrots and don’t know about their sensitivities. The old stories about miners taking canaries into the mines to detect toxic gases are unfortunately true. If the bird died, the miner needed to get the hell out of there. .
Toxic items for parrot owners are candle smoke, Teflon, self-cleaning ovens, deodorizers or other strong scents like Air Wick air fresheners, and any aerosol sprays. Trust me when I say owning parrots is a commitment. But it’s definitely a commitment I would never give up. 😍
Did you know we create book candles as well as fandom candles?! Well now you know! 😃 A lot of people have asked us what kind of candles we focus on and I have always replied "Us nerds are usually also bookworms, so we do a mix of both! We make something for every type of geek!" Hence the duality of this photo. Who says you can't Love both books AND video games?! 😍😍😍 Pictured here is our "It's only a game" Caraval inspired candle and our "Green Potion" Legend of Zelda candle. (Our Caraval candles are on sale at the moment too!) So be geeky. Be bookish. Be YOU!!! 💙💜💙 Photo by our Autumn Rep @nazishreads

Candle from @novellyyours
#allthebooksdec : Jingle Bells (favorite holiday songs), they play Christmas music nonstop at work staring the day after Thanksgiving so in my spare time I'm not seeking out any holiday music, but I think my favorite holiday song is Last Christmas and then any kind of Orchestra pieces
(pic taken inside plane) 🌻

“The old man was Gandalf the Wizard, whose fame in the Shire was due mainly to his skill with fires, smokes and lights… but neither they nor any but the oldest of their elders had seen one of his fireworks displays – they now belonged to the legendary past" ✨
Happy Saturday bookworms! Hope you are finding something pleasant to read this weekend! As per my previous post I've started Shadow and Bone and I'm loving it so far! Stay cozy everyone!
#booksunderthemistletoe17 - ABCs 25 days of Christmas. Harry Potter!
#lilbookishcheer - Wrapped. So I found this super awesome Fantastic Beasts wrapping paper (5 below, $2) and now I want to wrap everything in it! It's so..well..fantastic!! 😅
#circleofbookishfriends - Bookish Candles. I'm so, so, so excited my @belleandcocandlemakers Black Friday package came in. I love all of them, especially Hermione, who smells like magical woods, vanilla, and musk. Basically how I picture it would smell with Hermione in the library reading ❤️ (also got freebees Hedwig & Mrs. Weasley's Gifts, also amazing❤️)
#allthebooksdec - Jingle bells (fav Holiday song). I found some jingle bells in my Christmas decorations. But I generally keep them out of reach of Miss Mischief (aka Olive) as she will drive me crazy! My fav Christmas song is Oh Come Emanuel.
#frenchiefantasydecember - Fav female author. JK Rowling for life! Perfect example of hard work, determination, imagination, generosity, and woman power!
#bookreadhappyhour - Chosen one. THE Chosen One, Harry James Potter ❤️
#grimdragon - A satisfying ending (no spoilers!). The most satisfying of endings, both the books and the movies ❤️
Sparkling, glittering bookish candles ✨
Since I’ve gotten back into reading I’ve been building up a collection of bookish goodies and these are the bookish candles I own! I’ve showed off my beautiful blue candle called ‘Feyre’ by @bookandnookshop a few times but it’s so pretty! I really want to burn it but it’s just too pretty!! The pink one is the ‘Hermione: Brightest Witch’ candle from @flickthewick and it’s my favourite scent of the three. I received it in the November FairyLoot box and it sits proudly on my shelf. The yellow one with gold glitter was from FairyLoot but I’m going to keep what it’s related to a secret until others get a chance to receive their own box. 😊
I love bookstagram so much! I would never have found these bookish shops and new reads without the book community. I was in a bad reading slump (like 2/3 year bad 😳) and booktube and bookstagram reignited my love for books and reading! Now I just want to buy and read everything hehe.
Do you have any bookish merch? If you do what’s your favourite piece? Mine is probably my Hermione candle.
I think the demi-guise reminds me of yoda🔖📚- what do u think?
I am dying to know… what is your favorite Will Ferrell movie??
Day 16 Dec #bookreadhappyhour : SON of a NUTcracker! | This book has made up words!
So you may have noticed that the numbering is off on the prompts and you know what, I’m okay with that. I’ve come to terms with my dreadful copy and pasting issues. I’ve also noticed as I’ve gotten older, I have developed an accidental caps LOCK problem. I’m seeking help. So over the NEXT few days, do whatever prompt you like!! Just enjoy the craziness that is the lead up to the holidays. YAY!
To the prompt! Made up words? How about an entire language? The Shades of Magic series is peppered with a new language that Schwab created for her Londons. Honestly if there isn’t a made up word (not including names/places) in a fantasy or science fiction, it’s dead to me!
#circleofbookishfriends : bookish candles, I have a few for this series alone. I buy them for photos and now I have too many… so it’s pyro time!
#grimdragon : a satisfying ending. Well, part of the ending was incredibly satisfying to me, others not so much… and now we know why. A whole new trilogy set in this world!
Right. So Will Ferrell. I love ELF, don’t get me wrong. I end up in stitches every time… but my favorite Will Ferrell is Anchorman. Comic genius!!
Hey guys!! It’s the weekend and it’s also almost Christmas! I’m so excited! My bookshelf came and Im excited to show y’all the whole thing! Also my @owlcrate box came yesterday! So many things to be thankful for❤️
I was tagged by @lockyourbookup to do the #peterpanbooktag thank you💞
