It took a little while for the East coast to shake off winter, but spring is finally here and in March and April I picked up some new books and bookish items for my shelf.
Novelly Yours CandlesThe Dreamer & The Muse | Two 4oz jars | Strange the Dreamer inspired soy candles
I’ve seen these Novelly Yours Candles all over Bookstagram and Twitter. It’s pretty tricky to buy candles online without smelling them, so I searched for scents and fragrances featured in candles and soaps I already owned. I navigate more towards vetiver, sandalwood, jasmine, and musk; after some searching, the Laini Taylor collection felt like the perfect fit. Taylor is a favorite on the blog and Strange, The Dreamer was an ideal follow up to her debut YA series.
Of the two candles, The Dreamer is my favorite.
*The free sample I received was Cinder
An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
I remember when I was fourteen I tried to read the Oprah book club pick One Hundred Years of Solitude. At the time it wasn’t for me, but I’ve always wanted to read an Oprah Book Club pick. Tayari Jones was at the Virginia Festival of The Book, so I picked up a copy.
Any new bookish items on your shelves?
