Last week, I was on a roll. I was reading books left and right. I was diving straight in and not coming up for air until they were done. I was so excited about the new possible worlds to explore. I knocked out most of my library books and tackled some TBR books. And then it all came screeching to a halt. A few days ago, I started a fairy tale retelling, got 20 pages in, and suddenly found myself in a slump. I hated the book. I don’t think it’s a horrible book, it just was the wrong time for it. I didn’t feel at all connected with the book. And so I gave up on it. (This isn’t to say that I won’t read it in the future, but not right now) Since then I have debated what to read next. On my Goodreads account, I have listed that I’m currently reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I’ll tell you a secret, I’m not really reading it right now. I’m also not reading Scott Pilgrim. Those are sitting here staring at me, but I don’t really have a desire to pick them up. I’m officially in a reading slump. I think part of the reason is that the boys are coming on Tuesday. I keep thinking of fun things to do with them and what we need to do before they come. I am researching travel plans to get to the city and then each of the sites. J wanted me to look into Fourth of July festivities also. My mind has been preoccupied with other stuff. And I haven’t had the desire to read. So sad. I started Vampire Academy (library loan), but I’m not totally feeling it. I’m struggling to pay attention. Maybe once the boys are here, I’ll be able to get back to some regular reading. Hopefully… Until then, ALL HAIL THE READING SLUMP!
All Hail the Reading Slump
