About Book Perfume

We created Book Perfume in 2014 for one reason—to talk about books and everything that’s wonderful about them.

Correction: Stephanie created Book Perfume to talk about books. Riggins was in it for the snacks and became slightly disappointed when he realized there weren’t free cupcakes every day, but he still pulls his weight most of the time.


Sometimes we review books, sometimes we talk about movies based on books, and sometimes we just gush about dreamy heroes, butt-kicking heroines and the unforgettable authors who create them.

And sometimes we talk about cupcakes.

We hope that we can help you find your next favorite book, and if you have a recommendation for us, let us know! There’s nothing as fun as dishing about books!!



Stephanie Burns is a writer obsessed with her dog, pop culture, cupcakes and the smell of old books. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College and  wishes she could get a PhD in Jamie Fraser. 

Riggins the Beagle is her assistant, but he’s hoping for a promotion. His specialty is aiding her in the search for the perfect buttercream frosting. He enjoys Stevie Wonder music, dolphin cruises and road trips. He can be found tweeting about his adventures at @RidingwithRiggs.

They both live on the South Shore of Massachusetts.

  1. I adore Riggins! Every time you post a picture of him on IG, I fall for him a little more! (Our first dog was a beagle – she was awesome.)

    Since I know you’re a dog lover, I wondered if you’d be interested in reading/reviewing my latest release, “Stray Magic” – it’s a romantic comedy that is my usual “Fido-friendly fiction” style (stories about women and the dogs that impact their lives). But unlike my other books – this was has a touch of magic. It’s a modern twist on the Cinderella story – only Cara’s fairy godfather is a bit of a screwup and shows up 25 years late. If you’re interested, please email me at jackiebouchard at hotmail dot com and I’d be happy to send you a copy.

    All the best. Please give Riggins a smooch from me!
