Reading slumps are for chumps….I might be a chump.

It is April 4th and I haven’t even gotten one audiobook listened to or one book finished; this is not good! I may be all booked out right now. I can’t believe I even said that, but my older sister mentioned how sometimes she gets like that and she stops reading for a month. I’ve already gotten through 35 books so far this year and maybe my mind is just telling me to stop for a minute. This is kind of the saddest thing I’ve ever written.

Currently I have been listening to Beautiful Chaos and I started to get so bored of it. I decided to stop listening to that and start listening to Linger and I ended up getting bored of that too. NOOOOOOO! This is not good news at all! I tried to continue to read Dorothy Must Die; let’s face it…this book is giving me nightmares at the fact that I still haven’t finished it after what…a month maybe? And I love the book so far, which makes it worse and totally not fair!

So I was trying to read Dorothy this morning and then my kitten was being totally cute and trying to steal my bookmark, because it had a pretty red ribbon attached to it. I didn’tย even start the chapter, I take out my phone and snap pictures instead and then I’m like “hey, I’ll just check what is going on on Pinterest for a minute while I have my phone out” and then thirty minutes later. AHHHHH!

It’s hard to read when you have this cute furbabyย in your face; like “mom, that’s mine, give me that“.

Here I am distracting myself again and waiting for the bank to open. I could be reading, you know? I’m pretty sure I mentioned the words “reading slump” about ย a million times on here and Twitter, and probably Instagram too….I apologize. BUT HOLY CRAP THOUGH! I looked up tips to get me out of this reading slump. The boyfriend told me that reading should be fun, not a chore. Totally agree! So maybe I’ll take a small break from reading….I can’t believe I said that either….and see what happens? I have books coming in the mail soonish, so maybe that’ll make me excited! Or probably stress me out even more how I still have hundreds of other books I own that I haven’t touched. Loving books can be so hard sometimes.

If you have any tips to solve or help this problem, please feel free to share!

I have to get ready to go to the bank now though. I wish my new debit card would get here already. I never realized how much I needed it until it was gone. I guess that saying is true; you never know what you have until it’s gone. ๐Ÿ˜‰

In case you missed it; you can check out my Friday Finds post with books I recently added to my TBR list and books that I recently added to my Kindle. If I read as much as I found books in the last month…I would have gotten through probably a hundred. I hope everyone has a great weekend! Ten hours until I see Taking Back Sunday…wooooooo! I love seeing them live! โค BYE!!

  1. The reading slump will pass, as hard as it is to experience! Perhaps try reading a set amount of pages every day until you no longer need to set an amount. I find that when I read about 20 pages each day, I slowly want to read more and the slump fades. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I hope it passes soon! I have so many books I want to read. I’ve been reading a few pages here and there a day of the book though. So I’m trying still. ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks for the tip.

  2. Reading slumps are so horrible! Mine won’t go away… I’ve tried everything – reading a totally different genre from what I’m usually reading, re-reading a favourite, buying a new book and reading that; nothing works though… So I’ve decided, like you, to just take a break and let it be… Like your boyfriend says – reading’s supposed to be fun, not a chore and right now it feels like a chore to me… ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

    God being a book blogger and being stuck in a reading slump is the worst thing in the world… ๐Ÿ˜ญ
