Introducing January Embers! It smells of creamed strawberries, açaí berries, and soft woods. It‘s one of 3 new IT-inspired candles! The other two being Losers Club and 29 Neibolt St!

I‘ll be posting all the new releases in my stories today, so check it out! And don‘t forget that you can get 20% off ALL weekend with the code MEMORIAL18 at checkout ?.

I‘ve been a little immersed in IT lately, and you‘ll see why next month 😉.

I can‘t really pinpoint the reason, but Pennywise is one of my favorite monsters. Stephen King makes him out to be anyone and everyone‘s worst nightmare, and there‘s not much more terrifying than your worst fears. .

Do you have a favorite monster?

Cheers! #bookishcandles #getfictional #pennywise

I enjoyed the different points of view in this book. I wasn‘t sure how I‘d like deviating from Darrow‘s point of view, but the Rising and it‘s effects now extend beyond him - and Brown is pretty much genius at bringing in the other characters. I feel like Iron Gold is meant to build up to a big bang in the next book. There seems to be a lot of set up for the next chapter. We‘re on the verge of an explosion, and I know it‘s going to be devastating.

Red Rising | Pierce Brown
post image

Not many books have made me ugly cry within the first few chapters, but Red Rising fits into that category. Eo triggered an entire upheaval across the solar system - a revolution I don‘t think even she expected. I have mixed feelings about her and her choices, but she believed in her cause and wasn‘t afraid to sacrifice everything she had.

I love how flawed Darrow is as a main character - he rarely gets things right the first time, but his resilience and ability to adapt and learn from his mistakes are what make him so strong. Seeing him overcome every shitty thing in book one, and ally with those who are supposed to be his enemies... It‘s so wonderfully complex and full of adrenaline. Read it now!

Nevermore is one of the newly released scents, and is a warmly spiced, smoky vanilla. It‘s soft and slightly sweet without that overpowering vanilla scent. #bookishcandles #soycandles #theraven

"There is a small monster in my brain that controls my doubt.
The doubt itself is a stupid thing, without sense or feeling, blind and straining at the end of a long chain. The monster though, is smart. It's always watching, and when I am cmpletely sure of myself, it unchains the doubt and lets it run wild. even when I know it's coming, I can't stop it."

I love this book so much.

There's potential here. The chemistry between Denna and Mare is undeniable but the path that leads them to through their journey poses a few doubts. There's so much that's explained away by the incompetence of other characters. I found it hard to believe that not one of them would listen to the concerns of our heroines, and as a result, the obstacles didn't feel real. I loved the relationships that were formed though and enjoyed the book overall.

Really enjoying Of Fire and Stars from December's @owlcrate - The roles the characters play both conform and rebel, and it's interesting to see the two butt heads a bit. To see how each inspires the other. I like it.

I don't know what else to say that I haven't already said about Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. She's amazing. It's like climbing into another life, reading these books. And I feel yet another twist coming... and knowing what I know about these books, I'm bracing myself.

Holy moly. Took me forever to finish Cress!! Such an amazing series though. I love how Marissa Meyer ties classic princesses into this sci-fi-ish, post-apocalyptic, revolutionary, space-travel and androids story. She's got one hell of a mind.

"And now have I not told you that what you mistake for madness is but over acuteness of the senses? -now, I say, there came to my ears a low, dull quick sound, such as a watch makes when enveloped in cotton. I knew that sound well, too. It was the beating of the old man's heart. It increased my fury, as the beating of a drum stimulates the soldier into courage."

The story continues... I liked it much better than it's predecessor. Everyone got their shit together and realized that they live in the real world. Good character growth.

The writing style got annoying sometimes - Ward likes to use "okaaaaaay" A LOT, among other little quirks, but she can tell one hell of a cluster of a dramatic story.

Nice pick if you're looking for something a little crazy and fun.

I enjoyed this novel. It was fun. Dramatic. Gripping, even. I breezed through it, unable to put it down. But even as I was sucked in by the glamour and the darkness, there was so much frustration. The characters reacted, reacted, reacted, instead of thinking, and they seemed to refuse to communicate with each other. Most of the proverbial shit hitting the fan could have been averted had they simply opened their mouths. BUT, as I said, it's fun.
