Bookish Themed Goodies III 🤓

Hello Bookworms, 

Today’s post more bookish themed goodies!! As I had said before on my other posts on this theme I have been addicted to buying Bookish Candles sooooo there will be more of that! The shop for today is: MUGGLE LIBRARY CANDLES 

I love this shop. I found out about this shop by coincidence. During that time she was changing her labels, which I think they came out GORGEOUS! She had a special of buying one 8oz candle and you receive a 4oz candle w/her old labels for free. 

I wanted Winter Court which was inspired by the A Court Of Thorns And Roses series by Sarah J. Maas and as my 4oz I asked for a Rowan  which was inspired by the Throne Of Glass Series by the same amazing author Sarah J. Maas.  When my package came I was surprised because the packaging was so pretty and bright and in my order I had a free tea light sample of The Night Lord candle!! I was beaming \(^.^)/!!

LOOK HOW PRETTY!! She completely personalized the box and added a card and shipping was quick. I loved it! I was a satisfied customer which is the reason I am going back for more. She has new candles out and I bet they smell amazing!!

I have tried Winter Court, Rowan, and The Night Lord but my favorite is WINTER COURT . It looks so pretty and smells so good. It’s like the smell of pine trees and freshness. I love it!! 

The price range is $14.00 and shipping is depending where you are located. I am in the USA so It is $6.80. Its actually went down cause it was more. Trust me these candles are worth it. I am in love! Go check them out! She even has the bundle deal w/buying 2 4oz jar candles for $8.00 plus shipping. I will be buying more cause I am excited for her new scents!

“Romeo and What’s Her Name” by Shani Petroff [Book Review]

Image result for Romeo and whats her name

Title: “Rome and What’s Her Name” by Shani Petroff

Rating:☆☆☆☆☆/5☆’s

Genre: Teen/ Ya Contemporary 

Published: Feb. 7th by Swoon Reads

Synopsis:

Understudies never get to perform

. . . which is why being Juliet’s understudy in the school’s yearly “Evening with Shakespeare” is the perfect role for Emily. She can earn some much-needed extra credit while pursuing her main goal of spending time with Wes, aka Romeo, aka the hottest, nicest guy in school (in her completely unbiased opinion). And she meant to learn her lines, really, it’s just:
a) Shakespeare is HARD,
b) Amanda, aka the “real” Juliet, makes her run errands instead of lines, and
c) there’s no point because Amanda would never miss the chance to be the star of the show.

Then, Amanda ends up in the hospital and Emily, as the (completely unprepared!) understudy, has to star opposite the guy of her dreams. Oops?

My thoughts and Review:

I finished this book yesterday and all I have to say is I LOVED IT!!! this book was HILARIOUS!! OMG, You guys have no Idea how many time I laughed out loud. Just by the title alone you know there is a Romeo and Juliet scene happening somehow but the way the author created everything. I was in tears of laughter. I couldn’t drink water through a particular scene for fear of spilling. I loved it!

Since my reading slump was off and On this book shook it off completely and let me read my book in peace. The main character Emily was sooo funny and is definitely relate able. I cringed at times to her embarrassing moments. I felt for her, got shy with her, laughedwith her.  I was always like “Why did you! Stop!” but of course it was too late….(^.^)> lol.

I enjoyed all her characters, all the scenes, the reading was easy to go into. I really enjoyed the authors writing. It was perfect for me! This book was adorable, funny, cute, witty, giddy, light, easy, overall Loved it! 

I recommend this book! If your in a reading slump this baby is your cure. If your a Jenny Han fan this book is for you. If you like funny light reads this book is for you. IF YOU WANT TO LAUGH read it!! 

I saw that goodreads does not have a high rating which is too bad cause this was a fun read in my opinion. So make your own judgment and check it out!

“Bull” by David Elliott [Book Review]

 

Title: “Bull” by David Elliott

Rating: ☆☆☆.7/ 5 ☆’s 

Genre:Teen/YA 

Publishing Date: March 28th 2017 

Synopsis: 

SEE THE STORY OF THESEUS AND THE MINOTAUR

IN A WHOLE NEW LIGHT

Minos thought he could

Pull a fast one

On me,

Poseidon!

God of the Sea!

But I’m the last one

On whom you

Should try such a thing.

The nerve of that guy.

The balls. The audacity.

I AM THE OCEAN!

I got capacity!

Depths! Darkness! Delphic power!

So his sweet little plan

Went big-time sour

And his wife had a son

Born with horns and a muzzle

Who ended up

In an underground puzzle.

What is it with you mortals?

You just can’t seem to learn:

If you play with fire, babies,

You’re gonna get burned.

My Thoughts & Review:

~ Something that not many know about me is that I am a mythology junkie. ESPECIALLY Greek Myth. When I heard there was a retelling of the Minotaur and Theseus I had to read it! In the end it was not a retelling its more of a modernize version of the story in a poetic way. I actually enjoyed this read! It helped me fight off my reading slump (^^).

The story is told in poetry, but it is not boring. The language and tone used is more of our time, you know 21st century and If I’m being honest at time it did get annoying. Well mostly when a particular character talked. You’ll know who if you keep reading. I won’t spoil so no worries.

In this story we see more of the life of the Minotaur. In the original story we basically don’t have much background from him. I liked seeing this created story from the author. Asterion, which is the Minotaur became my favorite character and I felt for him. I knew what the outcome would be but it still did not help with my feels. I enjoyed all the characters even Poseidon which was the god involved.

Poseidon (God of the Sea) at the beginning ANNOYED ME!!! He was the reason I kept thinking “should I even bother continuing….”(It was that bad). The tone and language used for him was just too much for me and it annoyed THE HECK OUT OF ME. but I was glad I continued. Meeting the other characters and seeing things happening through their eyes was interesting. Watching everything unravel and my Minotaur and her sister. It was good! Definitely enjoyed the read. I do recommend for Mythology Junkies like me or Poetry lovers (Just get through the beginning it gets better) or even people who want to start Greek myths or want to read something light. This is the book for you. Great story, great background on Asterion, My Minotaur, I loved it!

Will be out March 28th so get your copy cause it is worth the read.

Bookish Goodies II

Hi-Ya!  

Since last Saturday I posted about “Bookish Goodies” I decided to post another this week. If you are verly joining me my bookish goodies are anything book themed related. For example they could be bookmarks, candles, jewelry, and so forth. If your interested to know about my first post on this topic just click here! Bookish Goodies I

Most of my bookish stuff have been bought from little companies in Etsy . This site has so many shops I’m pretty sure there really is something for everyone.  Anyways, for today’s bookish theme I will talk about BOOKISH CANDLES ♥♥!! On my last post I said I will mention shops I have bought personally or have received things from. So, each time I will talk about the items I loved from a particular shop! 

Today is about: BIBLIOFLAMES ♥♦♥. This shop was the one who created my bookish candle obsession!! I would always see different candles on bookstagram (Instagram for books. I have an account if you want to follow all my bookish related stuff @mywolfs_booktaste ). All the pretty candles and there scents always sounded amazing but the prizes at times would be to expensive for me so instead I waited…..but  then a shop appeared, BiblioFlames. It is runned Miranda, she makes candles affordable for her buyers. She also would do live shows on instagram and interacted with her followers and asked what we wanted to see or what we wanted to buy. She is funny and sweet and I just loved her. So I decided to get my FIRST EVER bookish candle from her. The “CozyBookshop”. 

This candle smells AMAZING!! and if you don’t want to take my word for it please do yourself a favor and BUY IT! It smells of Hazelnut Coffee, with hints of leather and vanilla. Its soooo GOOD!

The simplest way for me to describe it is If you are here in the US and have walked into Barnes and Noble and as soon as you open the door the scent of coffee hits you right across the face THAT is this candle. If you are into that this candle is for you. 

Another way to describe this for none Barnes and Noble people is walking into a coffee shop or caffè. Its that delicious coffee scent that makes your nostrils flare with goodness! I LOVE this candle, its my favorite so far from her shop. 

Prices vary depending where you are located because of shipping. If you are in the USA I believe with shipping included its $14 something. Which personally isn’t bad since some candles cost $14 or more plus shipping. She sales candles of 8oz and 4oz, also wax melts. I have both (^^) as you can see.

I have a new batch that I recently ordered. She is still a new company so she is still creating new scents and putting them out there. She takes input and takes our requests into consideration. I recommend her shop!! 

My most recent buys from her are “Goosebumps”” Jane Austen”and “Bella&Edwards Twilight”.  I got three 4oz candles and I can’t wait to light them up \(^.^)/!!! 

That is it For Now. Until next time (^^)/

“Books with Poetry”

Hey guys!
Sorry (>.<)>  Stephanie and I haven’t posted for a while. Life stuff going on and since we still new to the blogging world we still trying to adjust. We will try to keep up and maybe create some type of schedule.

SO, ON TO OUR TOPIC!

Poetry. Have any of you guys read Poetry books/reads? Any good poetry books you guys could recommend would be awesome! Lately, I have started to venture out of my comfort zone and started reading other types of genres I would most likely not pick up and poetry was one of them.

Normally I would get bored when I was in middle school or high school but now I am actually enjoying it. I have not picked up many only two types of poetry books. One called “The Princess Saves Herself In this one” by Amanda Lovelace, which I rated ☆☆☆.2/ 5 stars. It was ok… some of it was actually good. I had some favorites in the book BUT then there were other stuff that were ehh…so ya. Sorry if you read it and loved it but this is my personal opinion.

The other book is called “Bull” by David Elliott which is the reason I am doing this post and I rate it a ☆☆☆.7/5 stars. It is based around a famous myth story Theseus and the Minotaur and I am a Mythology Junkie so I had to pick this up! (eARc given through Netgalley).  It wasn’t that bad. I would probably post a book review for this one just because I actually enjoyed it. So look forward to that! This book will officially be out March 28th 2017.

A book I’ve been hearing good stuff about is “Milk and Honey” by Rupi Kaur. I haven’t picked it up but when I have the chance I think I will. So far everyone in the bookstagram community (Instagram but for books) has good ratings on this baby so hopefully I’ll enjoy it too!

If you guys read poetry or have read any good ones and would like to share please comment down below cause I wouldn’t mind picking up new ones! Thank you for reading guys and Until next time (^^)/.

♡Bookish Goodies😍

Hey Everyone,

This post is about bookish goods. Not the type you eat like cookies and cakes but items that are themed around our favorite books. For example the world of Harry Potter (😶….I haven’t read that series yet so don’t kill me BUT I’ve seen the movies lol) or Throne Of Glass (My girl Stephanie and I favorite series💕.) Or A Court Of Thorns And Roses (Stephs bookish Boyfriend Rhys💕💙 mine Cassian 😍💜. We decided to share Azriel……at least thats what she thinks😉) or even fairy-tales. There is so much diversity in our bookish goods out there.

So I don’t know if some of you guys know but there is this site called Etsy and many people go and create there stuff and start their little companies there. MANY bookworm/bookdragons there.I have recently decided to purchase some items from there and I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER. THEY SHIP WORLDWIDE!! I will only talk about shops I have bought from personally and loved. Today I’ll talk about one shop. Let’s Go!

BOOKISH LIPBALMS:  From Literary Lip Balms (Click to go to the site)

Don’t these look pretty!!😍💕. I love them!! And the packaging is cute! If you buy more than one they come in this small little sack bag. The little card illustration has a beautiful little art and in the back there is a message from the owner/seller herself.

She has her location in Dublin, Ireland. Please don’t panic about shipping if you are in the U.S. (I can’t speak for other locations cause evey price is different but you can check and it will tell you 😊) I paid $5.00 for shipping cost, which I actually thought wasn’t that bad because it’s not 5 bucks per item but $5 flat for both my items. Her lip balms are handmade and cheap too! Her cheapest one is $2.50 and her most expensive is $4.90.

My favorite so far is “Enchanted Rose”, which was inspired by my favorite classic fairy-tale Beauty and the Beast. It smells like rose petals and orange citrus. Its amazing and I love it. Just look at its color!

The other lip balm I got was inspired by Pirates Of The Caribbean and its called “Where’s the Rum”. Of course a line said by our Captain Jack Sparrow. This one has a little more stronger scent of spices. I’ll be honest I am not a big of a fan of this one compared to my “Enchanted Rose” one but it is still pretty good. This one I believe it takes a special type of person to like this scent. The color reminds me of the sun!

I am pretty happy with my buys. Since it was my first international buy I was unsure if I had to pay extra when it arrived but the Owner of the Literary Lip Balms answered my doubts and assured me. I did not pay crap when it got here so I was Happy! So I definitely recommend this place. To the USA it took 2 weeks to get here which was a lot sooner then I thought cause it said it would of take up to 4 weeks but shipping time was good. I do plan to buy all of her lip balms. My next ones would be “Mad Tea Party” and “Sherbet Lemon”. I will share my thoughts in that too, when I order them. 

Is there any bookish goods you have? what are they? My next ones will be about…….BOOKISH CANDLES!! The store that started my obsession (^^)’>hehehe.

That is all for now. Until next time (^^)/
