DIY your own Halloween reading party πŸ‘»πŸŽƒ


Dear reader,

Halloween isn’t a big thing in France. It was a bit celebrated when I was a child because for years I dressed up with my sister and went trick or treating in our street. But times passed and now almost no one opens the door to children anymore, which is super sad. There aren’t tons of Halloween parties thrown either, whether it comes from friends or from pubs. Over the years I then learned how to celebrate by myself, as I always adored Halloween.

Without further ado, I give you my guide to throw yourself your own Halloween reading party!

20 minutes to create and a whole night to enjoy


  • Sweets, chocolates, cakes and pop corns (whatever you like, really)
  • A book (it is a reading party after all)
  • A computer or a phone
  • A blanket and a ton of pillows
  • A cup of tea
  • Some candles
  • Comfy clothings (or dress up!)


While the night if slowly falling, you need to prepare all the snacks. Go to your closest grocery shop, start baking whatever you want – you will need to have tons of chocolates and sweets close to you for this very special night. Don’t forget to make yourself a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate! Put everything on a tray and hand back to your room!

Now starts the fun! Take all the candles you can find and light them up. Be careful where you place them – you do not want to start a fire. You can turn on some fairy lights if you have some as well. The goal is to get the coziest atmosphere ever.

Put on your bed all the pillows and blankets you can find, and put on your pjs as well! (Or you could dress up too, if that’s your thing.)

Put the food tray on your bed, not too close not too far, hide yourself under all the covers, grab your computer and or phone to put on a spooky ASMR (my favourites are from ASMR Rooms) and… Read!

And that’s it! You can now enjoy your book while celebrating Halloween on your own.

Tell me: What will you do on Halloween’s night?

Love always,

  1. awww, this seems so lovely! ❀
    I've never REALLY celebrated Halloween back home. When I was a kid, I was once invited to a party in a friend's house and we were supposed to go trick-or-treating, but because it rained, we ended up not going. After that, I'd usually dress up for school (as the years passed and I got older, I tried to make my costumes into something I could wear on a normal day, such as Minnie Mouse and shadowhunter). And in my first year of college, we had a whole day of activities planned for Halloween and I dressed up as Bellatrix! But normally, I don't do anything special. besides staying in bed and watching Disney Halloween movies πŸ˜›
    It's not a big thing in Portugal either. Kids now go asking for candy more often, but it's only in the near houses but not a lot of people have candy ready to give them )): For the older audience, the pubs always organize themed parties, tho.
    Last night I went partying with my friends here, but not because it was Halloween (there's a party in the same dorm building every Thursday xD) but almost everyone was dressed up as something and there was a girl with an AMAZING Maleficent costume ^^


    1. Hahaha I loved reading about your story with Halloween! I feel like except from the US not a lot of countries actually celebrate it, which is a bit sad because I think we should celebrate everything and anything!
      I hope that you had fun at your party though!! The Maleficient costume must have been AWESOME
