Crying My Way Through My Acute Reading Slump Plus A Short TBR List

Hi guys, it’s me…again. Have you read my latest review yet? If you have already, thanks a lot! As you can see, I’m very sick right now and I’m suffering from that horrifying, dreaded disease only us book readers (*coughs* See?) suffer from: (Acute) Reading Slump.

PINTEREST PHOT: Crying my Way Through my Reading Slump + A Short TBR List

Okay, you might be wondering why I’m claiming that I have an acute reading slump when I have just published a review like 2 sec ago. The truth is, I am having a hard time reading and choosing what to read next and this yucky feeling won’t leave me alone. I feel like there’s a worm inside my head and it has taken over the control center of my body.

These days, I’m trying my best to stick to my schedule and read everything I need to, in proper order: review requests, NetGalley eARCs, and the books on my personal tbr list. And now that I’m on a vacation, (because I just graduated from college yall) I do my best to finish everything and after forcing myself to read like 2 or 3 books (which are pretty good books, by the way), I know I just can’t read anymore. I can’t freaking function properly anymore. I feel like I… I’ve lost my edge.

But I have to read. We have to read, right? What do I do? I need to continue while I still have time and I just can’t.

What do you guys usually do when you have a reading slump? Or when you’re reading something (& enjoying it) but you feel forced to do so? How do you go on with your life?

Here’s a short list of my TBR or my To Be Read books and these are the books I currently have right now so I’m thinking that maybe trying to read one more– before I totally have a short break– can get me through this non-pathological disease and enjoy life as a merry bibliophile again!

I need to break the ice and these are my options– can you help me choose one?

  1. I’m sorry to hear you’ve been in a slump – I hope it goes away soon! Taking a break from reading can do the trick as well, pressuring yourself into reading all of the books can put you in an even bigger slump sometimes. Or re-reading a favorite book can work 🙂
    I’d say As You Wish, if you want a suggestion as to where to start – that book sounds really good! 🙂
    Happy reading! 🙂

    1. Oh it’s you, Marie! What a surprise! 🙂 Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ve been eyeing As You Wish as well but I’m kind of not sure when I should start reading it but since you said it sounds good, I think it’s a cue to finally start with it! 🙂
