Books to Pair with Christmas in the Castle

Books to Pair with Christmas in the Castle

Looking for Some Great Holiday Reads?

 As the nights grow longer and colder, there's nothing better than snuggling up in a cozy blanket with a good book. You can leave the world behind as you lose yourself in the pages and the world contained within. 
Could this experience get any better? Of course it could! Using the magic of fragrance, bring the book to life around you when you pair your favorite story with a matching candle. 
Here are some book and candle pairings we think you'll enjoy...

Book and Candle Pairings

Christmas in the castle collection

Royal Tapestry

and The Ice Dragon by E. Nesbit.

This short story can be found in the author's Book of Dragons collection, though it is now public domain, and you may be able to find it for free on the internet. 
For this chilly tale, you'll want something warming, so we suggest the orange and clove fragrance of Royal Tapestry.

Knight's Noble Fir 

and The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree by Gloria Houston.

This beautifully illustrated nostalgic classic takes you through the wooded hills of Appalachia. While not very long, it's well worth reading (or re-reading) this time of year.
Pair it with our Knight's Noble Fir to bring the forest to life around you. 

King's Cider House

and The Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

This is a great traditional story, beloved through the decades, and always worth revisiting. 
We suggest King's Cider House to bring the party at Fezziwig's to life (also good for watching any of the amazing cinematic versions of this tale).

Crimson Conquest

and North Child by Edith Pattou.

"East of the Sun, West of the Moon" is an epic Norwegian Fairytale about a girl who marries a polar bear.
In this retelling, follow your heroine across the snowy lands on a dangerous quest but don't forget to light a candle to guide your way. 
Crimson Conquest's rich, spicy fragrance will make you feel like you are sipping spiced wine in a white bear's company. 

Cozy Castle Hearth

and The Candlelight Gifts by J.A. Andrews.

This cozy, comforting fantasy retelling of The Gift of the Magi made our copywriter, Heidi, cry, but in a good way. 
You'll need something soothing and friendly to burn while reading it, so we suggest Cozy Castle Hearth with its smoke and vanilla fragrance. 

Medieval Deer Hunt

and The Winter Queen's Tale by Naomi P. Cohen.

Follow a newly crowned Snow Queen on her journey across a harsh land to save her brother. 
This lyrical fantasy retelling features wild woodland settings and many magical animals, pairing perfectly with Medieval Deer Hunt's fragrance of roasted pinecones and sandalwood.
