Book Swag is a monthly feature where I recommend five bookish products (often on a theme) I love and think you will love too!
Warm weather has finally arrived in the southern parts of the country and is quickly making its way north, which means it’s time to start preparing to clock some serious outdoor time! Here is everything you need to create the perfect outdoor reading oasis.

The first thing you need is a SUPER comfy place to curl up in the summer sun. Hammocks are okay but a hammock chair is more practical if you’re holding a book. Just add a couple literary throw pillows for added comfort and you’re good to go.
Depending on where you live and how sunny your backyard is, you may need some added warmth. Try this gorgeous lightweight throw blanket or, if you need something a bit cozier, one of these bookish throw blankets.
Keep the bugs–and all of the nasty diseases they carry–away with this 100% pure beeswax citronella candle. Beeswax burns clean and is free of any toxic chemicals, unlike many paraffin candles.
Of course, no dedicated reading time would be complete without a glass of soothing iced tea. Plum Deluxe recently sent me a couple samples of their tea and I have completely fallen under the spell of Evening in the Garden, which is just as divine as it sounds. If you want something a little more caffeinated, Reading Nook Tea is a fine bookish option. Vista Blend is also great iced.
If you need something to set your citronella candle and cup of tea on, this beautiful hanging wood table is absolutely perfect.
