What do you do when you can't sleep? . Normally I have no problem sleeping. Anywhere. Everywhere. It's called 4 kids syndrom 😂 . But today I haven't slept since 2 am, and it's now 5 am. I just whipped together a dough for breakfast rolls, and now I'm just sitting here. Should I turn on the tv or iron some clothes!? Maybe both.. . #somethingofthecandle by @linathebookaddict thank you so much for the tag: 🔸Favorite candle scent - sweet, spicy and flowery 💕 🔸Hoarder or burner - hoarder 🙈 unless it's just regular store bought candles. I'm not attached to those lol 🔸First bookish candle - The Hinterland by @wickandfable from @fairyloot 🔸Character you wish you had a candle for - Malachi from Grace and Fury by @tracythewriter or Nomi. . Candle by @geekyclean ❤️ . . . #bookstagram #bookster #instabooks #charmfeatures #unitedbookstagram #bibliophile #fairyloot #noraroberts #bookmerch #booktherapy #booksandcandles

Today’s #grimdragon prompt is debut authors, so I thought I’d feature the newest debut I’ve received! 🎉 I was lucky enough to win a giveaway recently for Mirage by Somaiya Daud. (Thanks again @spinatale and @flatironbooks!) This is a total case of falling in love with cover before knowing anything about the story, but I’m eager to read Mirage soon. 😍 Yes, I am still burning my first candle from @northavecandles! 🕯Mags and I were lucky enough to meet Amanda at BookCon and we spent an inordinate amount of time sniffing candles because they all smelled SO good. Check out her shop and you can use the code STAYBOOKISH10 for 10% off your order! 💖 QOTD: What’s the last book you acquired solely for the cover? 📚 -Len #bookstagram #bookfeaturepage #shelfie #mirage #somaiyadaud #ireadya #bookishmerch #bookcandles #giveaway #coverlove #booksandcandles #northavecandles #staybookish

🤔 Back to school: when does it happen where you live? 🍎🚌 ... .. . My question is inspired by a chat with @scentsandscentsabilitycandles and the other lovely rep ladies earlier today. School starts at the end of July where I live! It’s kinda bizarre. They do a “balanced calendar” where they get two week breaks for fall, Christmas/winter, and spring, but the short summer and early start still feels strange to me. The worst parts, though? 1) how very far from Hogwarts’ start of term school starts here 😅 and 2) how there’s no way I’ll ever be able to have a big celebration for Harry’s birthday with my kiddos when they’re older, because they’ll already be in school 😭. BUT I guess I should look on the bright side—at least when I take my kids back-to-school shopping on Diagon Alley, we will beat the Hogwarts crowds. 😉 ((P.S. I am absolutely LOVING this Diagon Alley themed candle from @scentsandscentsabilitycandles ❤️ It’s so good!)) . .. ... #bookqueensaug18 - books you’d win at trivia (⚡️🤓) ... .. . .. ... #harrypotter #booksandcandles #harrypotterandthesorcerersstone #bookishcandles #diagonalley #harrypotterillustrated . .. ... #bookstagram #igreads #book #books #bibliophile #bookish #booklove #booklover #bookphoto #bookworm #booknerd #bookgeek #bookdragon #bookobsessed #reader #readersofinstagram #bookpassion #ilovebooks #bookphotography #bookstagrammer

I wish you could smell how gorgeous the Fangirl candle from @thebookishflame is...it's yummy! And the quote on its tin is from my first novel, London Belongs to Me, so I love it even more! 💕I also love this collection of purple books. They make me think of grape popsicles especially when it's so hot outside. 💕The shop didn't have any…sold out! 💕 💕 #bookstagram #contemporarybooks #booklove #christinalauren #colleenhoover #katiemcgarry #bookbeau #thebookishflame #bookworm #romancebook #bookish #bibliophile #bookstack #booknerd #booksandcandles #amreading #amreadingromance #yalit #bookmerch #igreads #summerreads

🖤💀 Death Note 💀🖤 ~ I found this little gem the other day in a local comic bookstore, which happened to have a sale!! 😆💕 I love the design for this edition! It’s so pretty! Always been a fan of Death Note but never got around to reading the manga, so I’m quite excited to get into it! 😊🙌🏼 ~ #deathnote #deathnoteblackedition #tsugumiohba #takeshiobata #vizmedia #manga #bookish #booknerd #bookworm #bookstagram #booksandcandles

Never do anything yourself that others can do for you. . . Agatha Christie with the great advice 😁 . . Honestly Agatha Christie is an icon. I mean she is funny and mysterious and she fooled her husband into thinking she disappeared so she could get revenge on his cheating ass. Excellent ✨ . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookphoto #bookphotography #agathachristie #bookquotes #bibliophile #bookpages #booklife #bookfeaturepage #booksandflowers #bookaddict #bookaholic #booksofinstagram #readersofinstagram #bookworm #booknerd #bookgeek #bookdragon #igreads #igbooks #booksandcandles #prettybooks #bookish #bookstack

Happy Tuesday everyone! 💖⭐️ . I’m back at it again with the candle rainbow 🌈 because it’s just so pretty and I couldn’t let it go ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 Swipe if you wanna see my attempt at a rainbow heart 😉🤣 . . I got this book mostly for the cover, and it was cheap at HPB, and I liked her other book Foolish Hearts, so I thought, why not? ☺️ . . Also the rainbows are nice because first my area had some rainy days and then the smoke moved in from all the wildfires everywhere! It’s so thick outside you can’t see the sky and it’s heavier than the fog gets sometimes 😷 So the rainbows are out to help remind us of better summer days 🌈☀️💐 . . . . . . . #bookflatlay #bookrainbow #bookishrainbow #bookishcandles #booksandcandles #rainbow #firstandthen #emmamills #bookworm #booknerd #bookgeek #bookdragon #bookaholic #booksofinstagram #bookphotography #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #ya #yalit #yalove #yabooks #contemporarybooks

QOTD: What book do you just never seem to get around to? . I've had The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay on my nightstand for months (and on my shelves for years) but I never actually pick it up. I really want to at least start it this month, but history isn't on my side! . . . #booksandcandles #bookstagram #bookstack #tbr #nightstandbooks #willreaditeventually #bookstagrammer #blackandwhitephotography #bookphotography #booksofinstagram #igreads #kavalierandclay #michaelchabon #bibliophile #qotd #bookishcanadians

➵ I say this every time I post a Philippa Gregory photo, I need to read more of her books! And I will! There’s just such a stack to get through! 😂 I hope to read at least one this year. Btw, that cup did have tea in it, but it was drunk by the time I took the photo ☕️ ➵ Do you have a favourite historical fiction show? ➵ Poldark is obviously one of mine, but I loved The White Queen too 😍 ➵ ➵ ➵ #thewhitequeen #philippagregory #theroyals #britishhistory #englishhistory #heritage #englishheritage #bookishlove #bookishfeature #bookishlife #bookflatlay #booklion #booksandtea #bookishmerch #bookcollection #bookishcandles #booksandcandles #bookishthings #bookishgirl #bookdragon #bookspines #thebookishnymph #booksbooksbooks #bookworms #bookaesthetic #bookstack #booksandtea

"We are few and we are happy and uninterested in weapons and war, but we can protect ourselves." 🖤 . . I have had my eye on Binti for a while and after finally reading it this past week, let me tell you, I should have read it much sooner. Binti is an amazing protagonist with a clear, proud voice and a page turning story to boot. When she makes the powerful decision to leave home for the first time to follow her dreams of attending a prestigious university, she encounters more than what she bargained for. Entangled in a web of war, violence and segregation, Binti must fight to make a place for herself in a world that views her as an anomaly. I simply could not, would not put this down and managed to devour it in one sitting. Complete with math, science, aliens, and miraculous adventure, the Binti series is one I am continuing to follow.

In July, I purchased the @novellyyours Crushing on Contemporary box. This was my first purchase from this company and I am in love. Also, the label design is incredible, which is why I chose to feature one of the candles for #TypographyTuesday this week. 🕯 I am showing off the Pastries & Proclamations candle because it is inspired by To All the Biys I've Loved Before, which is one of my current reads. 🕯 The entire box is designed so beautifully and the candles all smell amazing. I could not be happier with my purchase! xx . . . . . . . . #novellyyours #candle #bookishcandle #toalltheboysivelovedbefore #jennyhan #booksandcandles #bookishsmells #pastries #proclamations #candlebox #design #label #typography #typedesign #type
