So I’ve kind of been obsessed with reading and watching people’s My Reading Routine posts the past couple days, so you know what I’m doing? Writing my own. (That’s kind fo obvious, I don’t really understand why I needed to point that out…)
I feel like everyone has their own little steps that they take to get comfy; whether that be making a cup of tea or cozying up with that one specific blanket, it’s just unique to you.
That’s exactly why I love this tag (is it a tag? I guess it’s going around a lot, so maybe trend is the right word. I don’t know). So without any more talking, let’s get to my reading routine.
I’ll also be sharing some of my favorite My Reading Routine
Now we all know that I can read anywhere at any time, but when I really want to hunker down and read for hours, I like to do this little routine/ritual to get into the mood.
PICKING OUT WHAT TO READ
Every book lover has this dilemma. WHAT DO I READ NEXT?!
Well, I don’t really have a system on how I figure out what to read next; I kind of just go with the fl
I do set a monthly TBR, and usually, I just set 3 or 4 books I want to read, so those usually (1) get the priority and (2) get read at the beginning of the month.
After that I kind of just read what I want to read, which means I’ll read any new releases or books I bought recently first and then any other books I’m interested in.
WHERE I LIKE TO READ
Most of the time I read on my bed, but when I’m feeling extra Tumblr, I read on my little rocking chair thing (I really don’t know what it is. It rocks but it doesn’t look like a rocking chair 😑)
When I’m on my bed, I like to make this little throne out of blankets and pillows. I try my best to stay upright, but I almost always end up on my side reading in a weird origami position.
I have this one white crochet blanket that I’ve been loving, beCAUSE IT’S SO GODDAMN COMFY! (thank you IKEA…)
WHERE I HATE TO READ
I used to love reading at school in the morning because I would get there 20-30 minutes before class, and then people happened…
Everyone just had to ask what book I was reading or what it was about etc. It got so annoying that I stopped reading at school.
Don’t get me wrong, I do read in the car on my way to school, I don’t really have a choice. It’s either readign for my 45 hour comute, or staring out the window blankly.
WHEN I LOVE TO READ
It’s no surprise that my favorite time to read is late at night/so-late-that-it’s-morning.
I’m not really a morning person, so when I wake up it;’s already around 10AM, and from then to nighttime, I do normal people things like writing posts, eating, watching TV, talking to other people (rare, but actually happens sometimes.)
FOOD AND DRINKS
I cannot eat while I’m reading. It just doesn’t happen. I’ve tried so many times, but I always get distracted and focus on the food instead of actually eating.
On the other hand, I can’t read without a drink. I always have water with me, but I’m trying to cozy up in bed then I’ll make a coffee or tea.
That’s all, I don’t really do much other than getting in some comfy clothes and makeing a cup of tea.
If you have anything special you do when you read, then write your own post and link it to me or comment it down below so I can share it!
Much love, Rawan 🖤 …
