We’ve discussed reading slumps at Book Binge numerous times. It’s been awhile since the last time and with all the new readers, I figured it was time to to talk about it yet again. I want to know what you do to get out of a reading slump.
On Friday, I finished Bad Moon Rising by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I have several books that I know will be good, but none of them appealed to me. On Friday night, I started three books and couldn’t get into any of them. I recently checked out Black Hills by NR from the library. It’s due on the 14th, so I figured that I better get started. I got up to page 92 and couldn’t continue. It wasn’t b/c it wasn’t a good book. I was just blah about it. I was blah about everything I picked up that night. So instead of reading, I had an HGTV marathon.
On Saturday, I ended up picking up Wild Heat by Bella Andre. I mean, really, when will a firefighter not cure all? Later that day, we were at Wal-Mart, so I picked up a few more books. After I finished Wild Heat, I started The Perfect Couple by Brenda Novak. I’m really liking the book, but I don’t feel like it’s gotten me completely out of my slump.
If I’m in a slump, I usually turn to re-reading. For some reason, I didn’t do that this time around. My husband doesn’t understand how serious this situation is. He just kind of laughs, like I’m making a joke. Hello, McFly? Not so much. Which brings me here, to you.
What do you do when you get in a reading slump? How often do you go into a slump?
