Book Slump Funk


I think it's time to admit it; I'm in a reading slump.

The last 4 books that I've read (or tried to) have me all bummed about reading. Two I did not finish, and the other two felt like a chore to read - which is never the desired outcome.

It's the latest book that I'm reading that has really got me worried, though.

I'm currently 7 chapters deep (12%) into Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas, and I'm not really enjoying it the way I have the other books in the series. - which total 8 books if you include the novellas.

I'm really hoping that it's just residual glumness from previous reads, or maybe I could chalk it up to jet lag...

Fingers crossed that I can power through this and the book turns out just as awesome as I know it can be.

Have you been in a Book Slump recently?
What got you out of it?

  1. I've been lucky with my last few books. There was one I almost DNF, but it got better towards the end. I hope you get out of your reading slump soon.
