Fantasy lovers know what it means to watch the world burn — or at least they know how to read about it. To fill a gap between reading and reality, here are some of the best bookish candles for fantasy lovers currently available.
These candles burn with the wrath of an angry god. They sputter with the indignity of a fallen villain. They alight at the inkling of adventure. More importantly, they are available today and can be mailed to you with little questing required on your part.
Let’s be honest. There is nothing better than lighting a themed candle as the rain splatters against your window, and you have the chance to curl up with your favorite fantasy book. Most book lovers like a good candle, but what makes these special is the theme. These are fantasy candles. Candles that are built around a genre known for bending the parameters of reality and giving readers room to explore endless possibilities. With so many fantasy worlds to choose from, the possibilities for candle shapes and sents are truly endless. These select bookish candles for fantasy lovers come from the fantasy books you love or at least hit the fantasy mood. And they are here to support you during your reading journey.
Admittedly, I am someone who goes through a frankly impressive amount of candles for a single person. I would say I was a bit of a collector. At least, I would be if I could keep candles around my house long enough for them to grow in number. That is all to say that I believe these are the best bookish candles for fantasy lovers because I would buy them. I hope you have fun with these for as long as they burn brightly and help alight your fantastical reading experience.
