1. I always read in the bath, it is the only time my boys give me any peace! I have a book in the car too, to read when hubby is driving. I used to read at bedtime and I really want to get back into the habit as it is so relaxing x

  2. I definitely need to make more time for reading. I’ve been telling myself this for ages now and haven’t so this post has officially re-inspired me! (Side note: I love that mug!) xx

  3. I’m really good at reading once I get going but the minute I fall out of the pattern it can take me ages to pick up a book again. I need to make the effort to start again!

  4. I love this post Hayley. I’ve been rubbish with reading so far this year which is not like me at all. I think I’ve struggled to find a book that grabs me quite as much as the Night Circus did. When I’ve got so much going on I find it hard to give the time to a book that needs a little extra effort. I do want to get back into the habit of reading at bedtime though, it definitely helps me settle and get to sleep better. x

    • I definitely go through spells when I don’t want to pick anything up but they are getting less and less now, we’ve both tried to stop having the ipad on right before we go to sleep and that has really helped. Oh and I really want to read the Night Circus again this year, I remember loving in but can’t remember much about it! xx

  5. Love this post Hayley! Like you I enjoy reading at bedtime and now always make the time for it, it also really helps me get off to sleep – something I used to have problems with. Great tip about always having a book on you – I’ve just started trying to do that myself and it really works! xx

    • We always used to have the ipad on before we went to sleep which I know is SO bad for switching off your brain but we haven’t done it for ages now…except when I go for an early night and watch something girly 🙂 xx

  6. Great post. I was always a massive reader but have struggled in the last few years (I go through phases) and I think my phone (well, the internet generally) is really to blame! I love reading blogs, articles, looking at social media etc but I think I need to reprioritise reading so thanks for the tips!

    • Yeah I think it’s really hard when you like to read so much online, I find the same, I get stuck looking at articles and then I’ve spent half an hour just staring at my phone!

  7. I completely agree with everything you’ve said in this post! I have had a book that’s on the side that has been there for months that I’ve wanted to read but have been otherwise distracted and I’m using the excuse of being too busy. I need to make the time. Of all things, it’s a book on mindfulness for busy people! The irony.
