What do I love almost as much as a good book? Candles! Candles can change the whole atmosphere of a room, they’re relaxing, and they smell delectable! Another great thing about candles? They can help you feel like you’re in the book you’re reading. If you’re reading a summer romance? Light a seaside scent! A book where the main characters are camping? Try a campfire candle!

Here are some of my favorite candle and book pairings that will help transport you inside the story!


To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and a Snickerdoodle Candle!

Who doesn’t want to smell the snickerdoodle cookies that Lara Jean is always baking? (Warning: You might want to have some cookies ready to eat. Between Jenny Han‘s descriptions and this delicious smelling candle, you be craving a cookie)

Candle from Colorado Soy Candle Co. 


When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon and a Strong Cup of Coffee 

With this candle, you will feel like you’re standing in the room as Dimple throws her ice coffee on Rishi. Who wouldn’t want to witness that meet-cute?

Candle from Hello You Candles 


The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell and Old Books 

Esta is looking for a book in The Last Magician, but I also think the old book smell is the perfect companion for 1901 New York City (but maybe that’s just me).

Candle from Frostbeard Studio 


The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han and Seaside 

Smelling the seaside while you read this summer romance will make you feel like you’re at the shore with Belly, Conrad, and Jeremiah.

Candle from Lumiere Candle Company 


Lock & Mori by Heather W. Petty and Sherlocks Study

Who wouldn’t want to smell Sherlock’s Study as they read this gripping Sherlock Holmes retelling?

Candle from Frostbeard Studio 


American Panda by Gloria Chao and Hot Chocolate

Get this hot chocolate candle ready, American Panda comes out on February 6th, and this candle will transport you to the adorable winter setting of this contemporary romance. (Bonus: We also recommend drinking a cup of hot chocolate while you read.)
