Books and CandlesSometimes we have to set the right mood before starting a book.  It can involve finding a comfy couch, a cozy blanket, or maybe a warm beverage.  Personally, I enjoy a nice candle while I’m reading, especially during those cold winter months.  I don’t own any of these candles (mostly because I’m banned from buying more candles…haha) but if I did I think they would pair up perfectly with the following books:

books candlesThese Broken Stars + Lilac Blossoms= Representative of the main character Lilac

Where the Stars Still Shine + Beach Walk= Chosen for the beach setting of the novel

Cruel Beauty + True Rose= I always think of roses when anything is about Beauty and the Beast

Fangirl + Autumn Leaves= Reminds me of walking around on my college campus

Open Road Summer + Blue Summer Sky= Similar to the open field on the cover

    I’ve already heard rave reviews about Open Road Summer, so it’s on my wishlist. But, pairing it with the Blue Summer Sky candle makes me want to read it just a little bit more. February’s winter weather has been brutal, so I think I need a book to take me somewhere warm!

      You definitely need to read Open Road Summer. It’s perfect for warmer weather. 🙂
