A Bookish November: Meet ‘Book Beau’!

We have finally reached the end, ladies and gentlemen – not of the world (although it sure feels like it), but of ‘A Bookish November’. It’s been a whirlwind of interviews, meeting great, creative members of society and receiving amazing feedback from you – the readers that make this worthwhile! I might just shed a…

A Bookish November: Meet ‘Bookified’!

We’ve touched on the subject of bookish boyfriends and girlfriends before in our ‘A Bookish November’ post on Behind the Pages, but we’ve only ever discussed them in the sensual scent realm. We’ve never really spoken of their, well, speech – more specifically, their words to us, their delusional lovers. I believe that part of the reason why…

A Bookish November: Meet ‘The Leaky Candle’!

Sniff…Sniiiiiff…Sniiiiiiiiiiiiff.  *Follows sniffing up with an undignified yet satisfied noise and mutters* Candles. There were bound to be more than two or three candle businesses included in this series of articles, it’s just the way of me, and as Lili Cunningham of The Leaky Candle says, everyone’s bound to share the excitement when they figure out…

A Bookish November: Meet ‘Litographs’!

Winter – at least for me – has come. Some of us beam as the first flakes cascade down, and others dread the harsh winter and plausible frostbite. I hate the weather, but revel in the cozy attire that rolls around – the cashmere, the leather jackets, woolly coats and socks – and the scarves. We…

A Bookish November: Meet ‘My Lit Box’!

We’re going to handle a bit of a grittier subject today, but one that must be discussed nonetheless, because subject matters that are avoided for the discomfort they cause and that are therefore left undiscussed pose a great threat to the societal approach of such issues. NOTE: I in no way mean offence to the opinions of…

A Bookish November: Meet ‘Novelly Yours’!

The world is quite familiar at this point to how much I love scents. I sniff defusers like a crackhead, burn candles like an arsonist and collect all the free perfume samples from magazines and Sephoras around town (I’d say there are worse problems to suffer from for those who would tut). Therefore, it would only…

A Bookish November: Meet ‘The Bookish Dreams’!

Coming across an item we picture a specific way in our mind’s eye is…well, difficult. Especially in reality, physically going to a store for a book-inspired mug with that specific Shadowhunter widow quote (you know the one I’m talking about – wink, wink) and then not finding it can be a real bummer. That is where…

A Bookish November: Meet ‘Lexy Olivia’!

Birthdays can either be fortunate, or very unfortunate. We can have a day unique and dedicated entirely to our mere existence, only to realise we share it with thousands of other people across the globe (this was the thing that shattered my innocent marvel as a child). Or even worse, we could grow up sharing our…

A Bookish November: Meet ‘Brassington Hollow’!

Books can manifest into a plethora of wonderful goodies. From the traditional quote bookmarks and posters, to character magnets and pillowcases, but have you ever heard or beheld a book pillow? I mean, a literal book, in pillow form? Meet Shanon from Brassington Hollow everyone, the creator behind the Etsy store where you can find book pillows, as well…

A Bookish November: Meet ‘Bookly Bird’!

Shopping online often brings us the joy of knowing we acquired a great deal without moving off of our couches, and the same and more can be said when subscribing for a monthly subscription box – we save on buying most of the items individually, and get a book that we all know I’m too broke to go…

A Bookish November: Meet ‘Meraki Candles’!

In my honest opinion, candles are the best way to set the mood for a reading session. Usually, this just means buying a candle from a Bath and Bodyworks or other candle sellers, and using your own instinct to decide whether the scent matches a character, or the setting of the story – but why work so hard…

A Bookish November: Meet ‘Behind the Pages’!

Though, realistically, I don’t see myself as someone with a ‘type’, I do find myself drawn to the same snarky, vain, and frankly, too good to be true type of male characters in books. Case in point: Thorne from The Lunar Chronicles, Will from The Infernal Devices, Kaz AND Jesper from Six of Crows, Nikolai from The Grisha Trilogy,…
