Music to Listen to Whilst Reading!

Hello, I’m back again with another slightly book related blog!

Anyway, this thought came to me because I was busy listening to a playlist I made on my phone for all the songs I listen to whilst working out at the gym. And I thought, ‘hey, why not upload a playlist of all the songs you listen to whilst reading your books!’ so that’s what this blog is going to be about… in case you can’t read the title!

This is just going to be a basic list of everything I listen to whilst I’m reading any sort of book. More than likely it’ll either be a slow song or an instrumental because I tend not to listen to ‘Pop’-y songs as I’ll start singing along and then I’ll get distracted (who hasn’t?!) and I’ll have to read the whole page again. It’s rather frustrating! So I try to stick to songs that are quite slow and I’ll alternate between the playlist on my phone or YouTube.

Anyway, enough useless babbling from me and let’s get on with the list!

These first couple of songs are from YouTube that I listen to (they’re in a playlist on my user).

  1. My Jolly Sailor Bold Cover by StephanieSings – super relaxing and easy to listen to. Almost like a lullaby!
  2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Lily’s Theme Extended Version by Alexandra Desplat – brilliant tune! Haunting and soothing as the same time.
  3. The Wolf and the Moon by BrunuhVille – I love practically all of his music. Some of them seriously make me want to ride into battle! Go and check him out if you haven’t yet!
  4. Winds of Freedom by BrunuhVille
  5. King of the North by BrunuhVille
  6. The Voice of the Forest by BrunuhVille
  7. Angel of War by BrunuhVille
  8. Dragon Empress by BrunuhVille
  9. Carry Me by Eurielle – such a lovely soothing song to listen to. There are lyrics to this but you honestly cannot tell once you start reading. Brilliant song!
  10. City of the Dead by Eurielle
  11. Rescue Me by Eurielle
  12. Dreams Cover by Bastille and Gabrielle Aplin – these two voices are absolutely wonderful when together!

Let me know if there’s any songs you like on here or if you’re tempted to have a listen to a couple of them!

Happy reading!
