I am SUPER excited about this post! This post is going to be a list/combination of things that I wish I could have in my dream reading space. The reason I am so excited to do this post is because I usually just read on the couch, so it is so much fun to find evyerthing that I want in my dream reading space! So, without further ado, let's get onto the post!
What is a reading space without bookshelves? After lots of browsing, I narrowed my choice down to two bookcases. The bookshelves on the left are the Billy bookshelves from Ikea. I love the look of the wall to wall shelves and I think it would be a great addition to a dream reading space! The floating shelves on the right are from Target. I would love to use them as a way to display my favorite books!
Obviously, I need somewhere I can curl up with my book! The chair on the left from Arhaus looks so comfy and like I can snuggle up with a blanket and read for hours. The couch on the right is also from Arhaus. I picked it because sometimes I would rather lie down and reading rather than sitting in the comfy chair! If these appeal to you, Arhaus has a wonderful selection of couches on their Sectional Sofas page!
Of course I need some lighting to read. I couldn't decide between these two lamps so I am including both. The one on the left is so adorable and the one on the right is super classy.
I actually have this blanket, and take it from me. It is incredibly soft!
Last but certainly not least, I need some decorations. I would love a book themed pillow like the one on the left from Society6. I think it would be adorable to have one of these cute "read" signs like the one on the right from Etsy.
What harm can a little hope do?
-The Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic by Leigh Bardugo
Oh my, I am LOVING this book so far! I started reading it about a week ago. Since it is a series of short stories, I have been reading a story or a half of a story every few nights. As someone who loved the Six of Crows Duology and the Grisha Trilogy, I am really enjoying this book.

Love speaks in flowers. Truth requires thorns.
Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price.
Inspired by myth, fairy tale, and folklore, #1 New York Times–bestselling author Leigh Bardugo has crafted a deliciously atmospheric collection of short stories filled with betrayals, revenge, sacrifice, and love.
Perfect for new readers and dedicated fans, these tales will transport you to lands both familiar and strange—to a fully realized world of dangerous magic that millions have visited through the novels of the Grishaverse.
This collection of six stories includes three brand-new tales, all of them lavishly illustrated with art that changes with each turn of the page, culminating in six stunning full-spread illustrations as rich in detail as the stories themselves.
