BLOGMAS: Must Have Book Accessory #4

Obsessed with my neighbor’s holiday display! There are spotlights on it at night and it is so beautiful!

I love writing these posts! Obviously all you REALLY need to enjoy a good book is…a good book ;). BUT there are definitely some things that will add to your reading experience in the very best possible ways. You can find links to my other “must have book accessories” here:

Must Have Book Accessory #4

One word: CANDLES.

I have written about candles on this blog SO many times. I absolutely LOVE candles and I have one buring pretty much any time I am home and ESPECIALLY when I’m reading.

I love seeing the flames flicker out of the corner of my eye while reading. I love inhaling the smell while reading. Just makes the whole reading experience even better!

There is nothing better than a delicious smelling candle and throughout the year, I have SO MANY that I rotate through. I pretty much have at least 1 candle in every room of my house! I have an entire drawer dedicated solely to candles that I rotate in and out throughout the year.

My birthday gift from my daughter this year:

Candle making kit!

My birthday gift from my son this year:


They know their Mommy well 🙂

I had posted this on Instagram a few years ago:


As much as I LOVE candles, there will always and forever be one scent that will completely own my heart. Bath and Body Works Winter Candy Apple, I will love you for the rest of my life.

I burn various throughout the year but from November through January, this is strictly the ONLY scent that I will burn. Just the scent of it brings me such holiday joy! When I lit it for the first time this season, my husband came downstairs and said “It smells like Hanukkah” and I replied, “IT’S WORKING!”

I spy Winter Candle Apple currently all over my house:

Next to me as I’m writing this blog post at my desk:

Our Dining Room table:

My Bedroom:

Winter Candy Apple has made MANY appearances on my Instagram page over the years:

And I may or may not have 2 more unburned Winter Candy Apples waiting in my candle drawer. THE. ABSOLUTE. BEST.

Basically, I’m never far away from books, coffee, and CANDLES! Especially during this time of year. Try lighting a candle next to you the next time you read! It will add such a peaceful element to your reading experience. I promise you’ll thank me!

Speaking of candles, HAPPY HANUKKAH to those who celebrate! Here are our beautiful menorahs, made by my beautiful children:

What’s your favorite candle scent?
