Friday Favorites | Reading Music

It’s not often that I don’t have background music playing while I’m reading. Sometimes random noises can really throw off my concentration, so providing my own white noise helps to really eliminate any distractions. I tend to stick with instrumental (primarily piano) but I’ll occasionally mix it up when I’m feeling like something new. When it’s especially noisy, I’ll pair some instrumental music with Nothing sets my soul more at ease than some calming music and the sound of raindrops on the window.


I’m a big fan of the Spotify feature where you can listen to Artist Radio. Sometimes when I find a new artist that I really enjoy, I’ll listen to the artist radio which plays similar music so I can find even more artists to fall in love with. These are some of the artists I listen to regularly that I’m constantly returning to:

Ludovico Einaudi
Bombazine Black
This Will Destroy You
Explosions in the Sky


Jane Eyre
Pride and Prejudice
Me Before You
Far From the Madding Crowd

Spotify Playlists

Spotify has the most amazing playlists and some of these pre-made listens are perfect as is.

Melancholy Instrumental
Calm Vibes
Indie Folk for Focus
Calm Before the Storm
Mellow Beats

What do you love listening to while you read?
