Something New For Saturday

It’s the weekend! What an exhausting week…..time for something restorative.

Here at MLCWO there has been a quiet obsession over the years with book related things that don’t involve actually reading. Book art, paper art, illustrations. You get the idea.

Well how about floral art?

So what about this???

Bookish Candle Review: Wick and Fable

So I recently purchased book themed candles.

Because I was seeing them all over Instagram and I just had to get myself a set!

So after shopping around for a few weeks, for deals and the best place to purchase from, I found Wick and Fable.

They’ve been all over Instagram and they had very good reviews and were recommended highly.

So I made the choice and bought!

Bookish Candle Review: Wick and Fable

I am so happy that I did! I love these candles! Like wow!

So the first candle that I have to do a little review of is the Rhysand candle from the ACOTAR, ACOMAF and ACOWAR  series which is one of my favorite series (besides the Guild Hunter Series).

Bookish Candle Review: Wick and Fable

The candle 100% smells like I would imagine Rhysand would smell. It’s so yummy. And I just couldn’t peel it away from my nose. I’m in love!

The other candle that I got is called Phoenix Tears!

Bookish Candle Review: Wick and Fable

It smells so sweet but not in a bad way! It’s got this magical kind of smell to it and I love it!

Now, if I smelt these scents in some store like Yankee Candle I would probably never buy them as they’d be connected to some silly name.

However!

These candles are based on books and just represent what they are intended to so well!

Overall these candles were so worth the purchase! Like so worth it.

One is smaller and the other is a bigger candle and I had a buy one get one half off or something like that. So it was an even better deal.

I highly recommend these candles from Wick and Fable.

They are great to just treat yourself or as a candle for another person.

Just remember to purchase in advance as they are home made so it takes some time for it to arrive!

Book-Recommending Bot?

So apparently HarperCollin’s has a book-recommending bot!

How cool is that? Not sure how I feel about it yet but I’ll definitely give it a go and see if it recommends something good.

What are you thoughts about having bots recommend books? A little to impersonal?
