Hello my fellow Bookworms!
Today’s topic is Tips on How to Get Out of a Reading Slump!
Now we have all been there. I was in one just a few months ago. For the life of me I couldn’t get out of it. Every time I tried to pick up the book I was attempting to read my mind would wonder and I just wouldn’t be able to focus. My #Owlcrate and #Bookofthemonth would come in and I still couldn’t just get myself to get excited about reading. There were a few things I did that got me excited about reading again, and ultimately brought me out of my slump.
Re-arrange your books!
So one thing I did was go through all the books I had. Which is A LOT! I realized I had a bunch of books that I had not read yet, but were hidden under others. It got me to read the synopsis and my interest began to peak again. I was buying books so much I forgot what I had!
Check out book reviews
One thing that got me super excited was reading others reviews. Reading random book reviews and seeing what was out there made me want to pick up a new book. The #bookblog community is such a wonderful thing, and can really get you pumped to read something new. I found many books that I would not have looked at had it not been for the reviews you all put out there.
Try a different genre
Last thing I realized was that I just wasn’t feeling the genre I was reading. I was reading too much sci-fi/ fantasy YA books and just needed a change. Sometime you need a break in your favorite genre, and that is okay. There is nothing wrong with trying something else, in fact it’s something I would recommend.
Hopefully these few tips could help you get out of that terrible slump.
Until next time…
Peace, Love, and Read On! ♥
