A Look Behind the Curtain: How We Make Our Book Inspired Soy Candles

Call us Dorothy, because we’re about to pull back the curtain and reveal all our secrets. To better understand our candle making methods, it’s helpful to first understand us as a business. Here’s a quick refresher on the stories behind each scent.

7 To-Read Lists to Help You Read More Books This Year

Our TBR (to-be-read) lists are enormous. In fact, they’re so gargantuan that sometimes we get overwhelmed by merely looking at them. It’s times like these when we turn to reap the efforts of anonymous book loving strangers.

The Benefits of Soy Candles

As a small business, we get a lot of question when it comes to how or why we do things the way we do. Why is it called “Frostbeard,” why are the candles all book-themed, why do you use soy wax instead of beeswax? We love answering our follower’s questions and connecting further with our loyal customers. So today, we’re going to do a deep dive on the how and the why behind our signature book inspired soy candles.

Fiction’s 7 Vilest Villains

Fiction is full of interesting villains. From the wicked wrongdoers that populate children’s books like Count Olaf to classic foes like Sauron, a good villain takes any fictional story from good to great. Because without an antagonist, the main characters can’t complete the hero’s journey and then what would we be left with? Without an adversary, there’s very little for a character to do in a novel.

The Story Behind Our Mural

If you’ve ever visited us in our Minneapolis studio, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the large mural painted on the exterior of our building. You may be wondering if there’s a story behind that mural. And the answer is... of course! Did you really think that a bunch of people who love good stories as much as we do would just hire some random artist to paint some random picture? That’s not our style.

Beginner Bookworms: Great Books to Read With Your Young Ravenous Reader

In the beginning, this was supposed to be a simple list comprised of 5-10 of our favorite childhood books that we read with our parents or loved ones. But we forgot one little thing; we’re huge book nerds, and all of our friends are book lovers too. So, once we began compiling our list by asking our Frostbeard team and then some of our close friends we decided that 10 simply isn’t enough.

Yum! Our Favorite Book Themed Recipes

Why is it that book food always sounds like the most delicious thing ever invented? The recipe could be as simple as molasses cookies, but if Claire Fraser makes them, then we want to try them. Book food, in our opinion, is even better than movie food. Here are some of our favorite book inspired recipes!

Our Favorite Rainy Day Reads

April showers bring May flowers, which means that many rainy days lie ahead. But as any book lover can tell you, rainy days are some of the best days! Really, what’s better than curling up with a good book on a spring day as gentle rain falls outside your window?

9 Books That Will Break Your Winter Slump

If you live in the north or along the east coast, you’re undoubtedly ready for winter to end. Sure, technically speaking, Spring began on March 20th, but with temperatures that have stayed around 30 degrees or less and ample snow that continues to fall we’re finding it hard to believe that spring has actually arrived.

Shows We're Watching and Looking Forward to in 2018

To be read... or watched? While books will always hold the number one place in our hearts, TV shows come in at a close second - especially if they’re literary adaptations. A good TV show functions just like a well-written book and whisks you away to new worlds with captivating plot lines and creative dialogue and settings. 2018 is shaping up to be a great year for television. Already, our list of TV shows to watch in 2018 is coming close to the length of our to-be-read lists. From book adapta...
