Around the halfway mark every year I hit a slump in my reading. I’m not sure if it is because I read so many book (62 so far this year) or because I become burned out by the genre’s I read, lets face it a lot of what I read is pretty dark and miserable. Lately it is taking me longer and longer to read a book, even ones that I have been eagerly anticipating.
I also find that I flick through a lot of books and nothing holds my interest, not because they are boring it is just that I can’t decided what I feel like reading, The biggest bestseller is even hard to draw my interest when I feel like this. I am hoping it ends soon because I really want to sit back and enjoy a novel again, not to mention I have finally seen the green writing on my good reads challenge telling me I am one book ahead. Yay me.
What I was wondering is if anyone else gets like this when the read? and what do you do to combat it?
I find that If I leave the genre’s completely then I can usually get to enjoy them again, so at the moment I am reading a lot more contemporary romance and New adult fiction at the moment. I also find that reading novella’s are a great way to get over my slump because I can read short stories that hold my Interest as well as not getting bogged down in all the depth of a full length novel.
Anyway that is my discussion this week let me know how you are doing in the comments.
