I always listen to instrumental music or ambient noise when reading, so here are some of my favourites!
Please feel free to comment with recommendations! 🙂
Harry Potter ambient noise
- Gryffindor Common Room
- Ravenclaw Common Room – my favourite out of all the common rooms and my go-to for reading!
- Hufflepuff Common Room
- Slytherin Common Room
- The Owlery
- The Hogwarts Express
- Hogsmeade at Christmas
- Hogwarts Library
- The Burrow – mmm, so homey!
- Malfoy Manor
- 12 Grimmauld Place – this is a little creepy to be honest but I love Grimmauld Place
- Azkaban Prison – surprisingly comforting
Other ambient noise
- Noisli – fully customisable nature noises!
- Coffitivity – University Undertones is my personal fave
- Rain Rain – this is only available as an app but it’s so brilliant and always helps me sleep
- River Campfire
Film soundtracks and instrumentals
- 1920s Instrumental – what can I say, I love Peaky Blinders
- S.T.A.Y. from Interstellar on repeat – I found this accidentally but it’s really relaxing
- Mad Max Fury Road
- The Theory of Everything – Jóhan Jóhannsson
- Sicario – Jóhan Jóhannsson, again
- The Mercy – Look, anything by Jóhan Jóhannsson is *kisses fingers like an Italian chef*
- The Best of Ennio Morricone – I did a 6000-word project on Westerns, this helped A LOT
- This collection of tracks from various fantasy movies, called I Dream of Far Off Lands
