If you feel that you know the theme of the book you’re currently reading pretty well, you could incorporate some themed decorations into your room! So if you have any book posters for the book, you could bring those out and even make some book themed DIYs to amp up the room setting! Maybe you can even bring out those festive fairy lights to have on while you flip through your book (which is basically a tumblr type setting but if it’s your kind of thing, “You go, Glen Coco!”).
