Jane Austen writes in Pride and Prejudice that “there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book!— When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” Despite the fact that Caroline Bingley (ugh) says this just before tossing aside her book, the quote serves to highlight how certain characters — such as Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy — really do love reading. For fellow bookworms and Austen fans, Caroline’s statement couldn’t be truer. And if you never tire of reading books, you probably never tire of pairing your favorite novels with your favorite candles (or, of course, Harry Potter candles).
Something about reading while a lovely scented candle burns will always be so relaxing. If you also sip tea from a book-inspired mug, you’ll never want to get up from your spot. And though I’m sure your imagination is amazing enough to conjure images as you read, a candle with a book-inspired scent will make the world come alive even more as you flip through the pages. So put on your bonnet and get ready for a stroll in an English garden, because you’ll be completely transported to the Regency era with the following Jane Austen-inspired candles.
