So I decided to order some candles off Etsy for the first time. I knew @threeknockscandles would be a good place to start and OMG I’m not even slightly disappointed. This box gave me all the spooky fall vibes. I so cannot wait to burn one of these tonight (yes I do burn my candles 😱). Happy spooktober.
It's time to reveal everything in the August Women in Comics box from @enchantedbookbox! I know I'm late but life.
This box is legit amazing and might be my favorite to date! They just keep getting better and better and better!
Included in this box:
💥A Comic Book! Mean Girls by @ryanheshka. The artistry is absolutely stunning and I'm loving the vibe! These ladies look badass!
💥A Harley Quinn Funko keychain!
💥Fight Like a Girl candle from @threeknockscandles that smells amazing! It's sugar and spice and kick-ass!
💥The Enchantress soap from @story_scentsations that smells wonderful! It's also beautiful with the gold glitter!
💥Magnetic bookmark set from @beedooto!
💥A superhero woman pin from @raicodoll that is super badass!
💥Artwork print of a superhero girl with a katana by #ProudMomPrints
💥The artwork from the info card is another AMAZING creation from @johnyfoxart! He has knocked it out of the park again with the badassery that is this art piece!
💥And finally...the books...Wonder Woman: Warbringer by @lbardugo! I was so hoping I would get this book at some point during life and here it is!
While I love discovering new books there's something just as great about going back to reread. Like going to a restaurant and ordering your favorite dish or popping in that movie you've already watched a bazillion times.
Sometimes I revisit a story because it's been awhile or I want to break out of a slump- OR a new book is being released and I need to make sure the story is fresh in my mind! In honor of the Tower of Dawn release next month today's #threeknocksthursday is for my man Chaol. Chaol is a mix of clean green, apples, and oats and it smells amazing. I've just started Crown of Midnight and even though I know what's coming I'm enjoying the time with these two- the calm before the storm as it were. While I'm super bummed about the pushback of the final book in this series I completely respect the decision that family has to come first. (we waited three years for OOTP after GoF so it could be worse).
Does anyone else like to reread your favorites? Or do you prefer to read once and move on to the next adventure?
"My name is Holiday Sanchez. I carry a heavy burden. But I'm not the only one.
... Maybe I'll finally get past it. Maybe it just takes time- and a little bit of Magic" Me and Milo the Great
August has been off to a great start you guys! I've somehow managed to finish 7 books in 7 days (can I make it 8 in 8??) and I'm excited to share another one of them with you today. I didn't know much about this book other than the brief synopsis on the back cover (included above) which made diving into the story even better. It isn't easy to face the future when you haven't made peace with the past, and nobody knows that better than Holiday. Ruled by her anxiety she prefers the comfort of her apartment and companionship of her cat Spook, until one day a chance encounter in a train station changes everything. I really enjoyed the writing, and the story flowed seamlessly between past and present events. I truly felt as I was along for Holiday's journey and was rooting for her every step of the way.
Me and Milo The Great releases this September so be sure to look for it! Thank you so much to @michelleschlicher for sending me this early copy 🖤❤

So just to name a few.. reading obviously, but I like gaming as well, watching nerdy shows, cosplay and comic cons, but I'm also into Archery (love it!), going on adventures, and cars. I actually have a big car meet this weekend that I'm heading too that will involve a canyon cruise and beach picnic, so should be fun! Haha and my list doesn't stop there. But any who... I found this fun post on @bookwhit and wanted to do it so here goes!

Guys I got my first candle from @threeknockscandles and let me say just say....WOW I'm in love!!
I could smell the candles the moment I opened the box and the smell was just heavenly!!! 😇🙌🏻
Bedtime stories reminded me of how my mom was when I was younger and it almost brought tears to my eyes!! 💕 I was super impressed with the way it sparkles and I almost don't want to burn it because of how pretty it is!! ✨
The smaller candle is a sample of Wonderland: Eat Me....and guys I have found my next buy 😍😍 Again, a million thank you's!! 💙
I'm almost done with The Girl at Midnight, the beginning of another series binge! I received the second and third books on audio from the publisher but hadn't read the first yet so I finally broke down and used and Audible credit to grab it! (I've been waiting for it to be on sale for like, years.) ⠀
I have less than a half hour left and will finish on my drive on the way home today! So far the beginning was more enjoyable than the ending and things have taken a turn into trope-ville in so many ways that I wish it had a little more world-building to balance out some of the feelsy things. If I didn't have the second and third books, I don't know if I would have rushed to pick them up but I'm in it for the long haul and am curious to see where the rest of the series goes! ⠀⠀
Have you read this series or any of the books in it? What did you think of the first book? ⠀⠀
Hello @threeknockscandles! I'm Jen and I would love to be one of your reps for the summer 😊 I absolutely adore bookish candles and I would love to have the opportunity to promote yours. Candles are a big feature in my photos, from tealights to regular 8 oz candles. I feel like they add a little something extra especially since you can't read a book without light 😉 I've had a bookstagram for about two years and I would be honored to grow with you this summer. #threeknockssummerreps#threeknockscandles
Hey, Smalls, you wanna s'more?
Some more of what?
No, do you wanna s'more?
I haven't had anything yet, so how can I have some more of nothing?
You're killing me Smalls!
So I may not be a "read for the season" person but I definitely watch for the season! Miracle is a winter movie, Hocus Pocus is-well trick question that's an all year one, and The Sandlot is one of my favorite Summer movies (not just because I enjoy picking out the Mighty Ducks players) When I saw Laura @threeknockscandles had a new Sandlot inspired candle for the Summer season I was in! It smells like bubblegum and grass and just makes you want to run to the baseball field and then come back and have a campfire. What are some of your favorite summertime activities?? Do you have a certain type of book you enjoy reading during the summer?
@ladyofthelibrary @katyslibrary please don't hate me but I had to! #livelaughbooksjune is books and treats so I'm just following the rules!
The Chaol candle is officially back in stock, along with Dorian and Rowan! And with Three Knocks' Mother's Day Sale, there has never been a better time to buy! If you buy two 8 oz candles you can get a third one for free! Just put all three in your cart and use promo code MOMSDAY8 at checkout!
I read this book too fast and I forgot to post so I'm actually done already. I'm hoping to post my review tonight! I had no idea what to expect when I started so I was pleasantly surprised by it. I'm giving it 4/5 ⭐. Have you read The Ocean at the End of the Lane? What is your favorite Gaiman?
@threeknockscandles is officially bringing back the Beyond the Wall candle! It smells so good. If you want one, use my code BOOKISHMOMMY15 to save some $ 🖤
My bookstagram philosophy: Do things that make YOU happy. If you want a theme, have a theme. If you don't give a shiz about themes, then screw it, don't have one! Follow who you want, have fun, don't be afraid to post about books that aren't "popular". Let's be nerds who take photos of books all day/ want to talk about books all day/ and most importantly READ! 📚
I've got a short stack of short books here for #circleofbookishfriends .
Get your own beautiful candles from @threeknockscandles and use my code BOOKISHMOMMY15 for 15% off!!! She has new scents. Alice in Wonderland, Walking Dead and the Sandlot!! 😀

I got my rep package from @threeknockscandles yesterday and of course I had to have the Beyond the Wall. It smells deliciously pokey. Not overpowering at all. It's like I'm on the Night Watch and I'm going to go track down some wights with my bros. I love it so much! Check out Laura's shop, she has so many fandoms to choose from.
