25+ Bookish Candles to Create The Perfect Reading Mood

Many of us have rituals when it comes to reading. We have a certain blanket we read under. A certain chair or space on the couch. Perhaps a drink or a snack we enjoy settling in with.

Some of those rituals might even involve lighting a candle to really set the perfect mood and tone for reading.



Whether or not your ritual does include books, perhaps you’d like to create a mood that’s more literary with a sweet bookish candle. Here’s a round-up of some of the creative, book and lit themed candles to help light up your reading life (YES, I went there).
