CANDLES IN BOOKLAND UNBOXING…

Hello Bookworms! It’s been a minute since I’ve done an unboxing here on Lair Of Books but in the spirit of starting them up again I come to you with one worthy of your attention ๐Ÿ˜ย I recently started repping for Candles in Booklandย who also recently curated their first themed box. Titled “The Thirteen” this box is centered around Manon Blackbeak and the 13 witches in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I was over the moon excited to hear my favorite character in the series was getting a box focused on them cause Queen Manon is worthy of all that & more! You can find Candles In Bookland on Instagramย & the shop link is linked above and will be linked at the very end of this unboxing as well.

 

The Bookmarks…

The STUNNING artwork for the Manon & Abraxos bookmark was created by Kaya @Kayadoodles

ย Asterin, Manon, and Elide were created by Salome Totladze @MorganaOanagrom

The Art Prints…

Elide & Asterin art prints to match bookmarks were created by the talentedย  Salome Totladze @MorganaOanagrom

Fierce Manon print created byย 

Salome Totladze @MorganaOanagrom

The Book Sleeve…

๐Ÿ–คย Created by Julie & Brittney @babymybook this bookย sleeve will fit most tomes. My hardcover copy of A Court Of Mist and Fury fit snug as a bug & the kangaroo pouch allows you to stash any stationary on the go

The Candles…

๐Ÿ–คย Everything was packaged so nicely & the red really pops and gives off Manon Vibes!ย 

Manon- Sweet Cider, Cloves, Blood Orange, Citrus, Warm Spices, Sandalwoodย 

Elide-ย Amber, Musk, Cherry, Floral, Jasmine, Berry, and Sandalwood

Asterin-ย Leather, Woody, Raspberry, and Vanilla

๐Ÿ–คย The Manon candle is a two color blended candle that has this amazing citrus scent. Elide’s candle is my fave of all, warm with hints of cherry and jasmine that make me want this candle is a HUGE jar ๐Ÿ˜‚ย The Asterin candle smells of lovely Raspberry with a hint of vanilla ๐Ÿ’œย to top it off these have glitter on top and look so beautiful!ย 

Sorrel- Amber, warm spices, sandalwood

Abraxos- wild flowers, spice, clean air fresh herbal scent, a hint of leather

๐Ÿ–คย Sorrel smells like Autumn in a jar while Abraxos reminds me of my fave laundry detergent with its fresh scentย 


“The Thirteen” is a June Exclusive box by Candles In Bookland that will leave fans of Manon Blackbeak and the 13 blown away!!! This is their first themed box and the quality really speaks for itself. The box does have a quote written on the front flap that has a misspelling the shop owner is aware of. However, this mishap is quickly forgotten the minute you open your box. I’m always on the hunt for bookishย merch, candles & bookmarks being the top two items I buy the most of. I am MOST certainly looking forward to the next one! ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค

Top 5 Wednesdayย 

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey from Gingerreadslainey & is now moderated by Sam from Thoughts On Tomes. Each week there’s a different bookish related topic (this varies & isn’t always strictly books) & you get to list your top 5 books or bookish answers related to the topic.

This week’s topic is Favorite Character Names. This also being my 1st T5W, I thought about my top 5 ALL morning smh lol SO, here they are:

1. Luna Lovegood (Harry Potter)– her name as strange & lovely as she is. I love me some Luna ๐Ÿ˜


2. Celaena Sardothien aka Aelin Galathynius (Throne Of Glass)– Any way you put it, her name says one thing…Bow Down Bit***!


3. Mustang (real name: Virginia au Augustus; Red Rising)– Loyal, smart as hell, & strategic. A force to be reckoned with.


4. Karou & Akiva (Daughter Of Smoke & Bone)– yes, I cheated a little and chose two but c’mon now, these names are as strange as Lainey Taylor’s beautiful (still weird) writing. I miss these two.

& Last but not least!

5. Ava Lavender– Her name fit so well with her story, one of the few characters that made me fall in love with Magical Realism.
