OH HEY THERE BOOKWORM, THANKS FOR GIVING MY ABOUT PAGE SOME LOVE
It’s lovely to meet you, I’m Elle and I’m the Chief Librarian here at Good Book Hunting HQ (GBH for short). If you’re new here then you’re probably wondering what this site is all about…
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BOOKS!
So let me tell you a little story…
ONCE UPON A TIME…
There was a little girl who dreamed of living in her own library and being surrounded by lovely books, and she would spend all her day reading, drinking tea and hunting for more good books to read. Well that happened, she became a librarian, she was surrounded by lovely books, and she drank a lot of tea. She also bought and read a lot of books and so in order to fund her book acquisitions, she decided to open a little bookish shop to sell some lovely things that she made and use the money to buy more lovely books.
I read a lot, and I’ve run a book group since 2005, so books are kinda my thing, and it probably won’t come as a great surprise but I have read all of the books that have inspired my bookish candles. So without further ado, here is a list of some of my personal favourite books and series. They may not all be your cup of tea, but there is bound to be something on this list that will have you staying up till the wee small hours just to finish the book, read just one more chapter or savour some delicious dialog between your new favourite characters. And you never know, it may end up as a candle one day, if it hasn’t already.
GOOD BOOK HUNTING SHOP
And that brings me to the shop! After some years of designing book-related merch for other people, and running my other non book-related shop, I decided to open a shop on Good Book Hunting purely for book-related merch – specifically BOOKISH CANDLES – and some other related products that have been handcrafted by myself. I knew there were already a lot of bookish candles out there when we opened the shop and there are even more now in 2018, but I stand by the quality of our candles and I know they are good. We use only the purest 100% additive free eco soy wax, premium fragrance and lead-free cotton wicks. Our new releases are planned months in advance and are thoroughly tested before launch. We have also been fully CLP compliant from the beginning and all of our candles carry the required safety and allergen warnings. Our candles are inspired by some of our favourite books and other favourite things. We hope that you love them as much as we do!
