My reading nook is probably the most important part of my room. I can never seem to read anywhere else as comfortably. Of course my reading nook isn’t anything fancy. It’s just my bed organized in a very comfy way to get me in the mood for reading. I’m going to share some ways you can make your room the comfiest it can be and ready for a fun day of reading, movie watching, and total relaxation.
So, let the planning begin with these simple steps!
My purple blanket is my life. It’s literally the softest thing to ever exist. It doesn’t just make the space extra comforting but also adds color to my nook when I need it for pictures. Of course anything that makes you feel comfortable will work. The whole point is to make it the perfect retreat for you.
Pillows, lots and lots of pillows:
I love being surrounded by pillows. I have so many different shapes and sizes and it only makes my bed that much cozier. In truth you can always have a few favorite pillows or ones that you find really comfortable. Any of these will work.
A steaming mug of tea, hot cocoa or coffee:
So this highly depends on your preference or the time of day that you choose to read during. I personally have two kinds of moods. During the week I read in the morning (since I got to university) so I spend a few hours reading a book with some coffee to keep me awake. But during the weekend all that changes. I prefer to read at night so I love having a nice mug of hot cocoa after taking a shower and sitting with my book and blanket.
A simple candle can go a long way:
I love candles but sadly I don’t have many of them, and that’s okay. You only really need one. My favorite candle is my Ravenclaw one from Typo. I use this one all the time, and it lasts so long and smells amazing! I love dimming the lights and lighting one of these.
ASMR Ambiance video:
I don’t always do this and some of you might not like the whole experience of an ASMR video but it’s always an option. I enjoy this particular one by ASMR Rooms of youtube. It’s an ASMR of the Ravenclaw common room! (all the houses are available). You can hear the crackling fire and the occasional pages turning in the background.
And of course, a book:
The most important component of this whole set up is of course, the book. Whether it’s a physical book, ebook, or audiobook just find your perfect book friend and get to reading!
