Hellooo lovelies! Happy Hump Day! We’re halfway through the week, thank goodness! I know I always say that, but the last two weeks have been kind of rough. It feels like I’ve just been rolling with the punches at work, learning and all that (I am still technically training), but then suddenly another dude tags in and it feels like I’ve been hit by a freight train and I’m still recovering. It’s just constant (yet rewarding!) work and it leaves very little time to do any fun activities like reading.
With that being said, let’s talk about the worst enemy of a reader, the reading slump. We’ve all probably found ourselves in a reading slump once or twice over the years, right? So we shouldn’t be strangers to the feeling of not wanting to read, or other cases, wanting to read but not finding the motivation, time, or energy to read after a long day. Right now, I’m feeling very much the latter. As it is, I do a lot of reading at work, mostly court reports and contact entries, but reading nonetheless, right?
Yes, buuuuut it makes it REALLY hard for me to want to read anything once I get home. Hence the movie/TV series reviews ya’ll might be seeing for a while. And it doesn’t help the whole “wanting to read” situation when I think of all of the books on my TBR. Do you guys ever feel overwhelmed by your growing TBRs? How do you all manage to handle it so wonderfully?
Right now I’m just kind of going with what my brain wants, which is movies/TV right now. I can’t say I’m fully in a slump yet because I’m still reading, but I literally only get maybe like 4 or 5 chapters in a night when I would normally get in at least like 8+.
Any advice would be appreciated, especially since I have so many lovely books I want to review for you guys! (P.S. I found that image on google when I searched “reading slump”)
I actually have a few questions for you lovely readers today! First, what kind of reading slump do YOU go into when you do go into one? (That sentence sounded so much better in my head lol) And second, how do you guys get yourselves out of the slump?
