Reading Slumps Suck
I usually post a review on Monday’s but today is a little different because I don’t have one TO POST. Why is that? Because I’ve been in a horrible reading slump for the last few weeks.
I don’t know if it’s because the last book that I read was just THAT good (One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid), or if there’s another reason playing into it. I’m thinking it’s mostly Taylor Jenkins Reid’s fault though. Even though I have been super busy with my job and with opening a Society6 and Redubble, I have had time to read and I’ve actually picked a few up and I even go as far as to read 30ish pages but they just don’t hold my interest. It sucks because I’m pretty sure they are books that I would love otherwise.
This always seems to happen to me when I’ve read a really amazing book. It gives me a book hangover and then when I decide it’s time to start a new one, nothing sounds good or if a book does sound good, it doesn’t hold my attention for very long and I get so frustrated and end up putting it down.
I think what I need is a really quick read that starts off fast to hold my interest! Unfortunately, this slump kind of makes everything sound kind of EHHH so PLEASE leave me some recs in the comments! I’m thinking a NA contemporary maybe?
The other reason I wanted to write this post is to ask you guys: what do you do when you’re in a slump? Do you go into reading slumps after reading a really good book?
