What Are You Reading?

What are you reading

Hello Friends!

How long has it been since I have done one of these post? I can’t recall. There is a reason behind it all though. Simple…I have been in a reading slump…

*Dun dun duuuuunnnnn*

I want to read, but then I start reading and I no longer want to read. What is this madness??! I am still in a reading slump. I am trying to force my way through the books, but I just can’t seem to do it. And they are super interesting stories that I want to read…but sitting down and actually reading is so hard!

So I have set myself a goal to make sure I read every day. I had planned on 50 pages a day, but I think for now I will drop that down to just 10 pages a day. Just to make sure I am reading something, but not forcing too much so I can get out of this slump.

Any tips for getting out of a reading slump??

I am only reading one book right now.

Curio by Evangeline Denmark

The cover is so pretty and the story is pretty good so far. If I could just make myself read.

Since today is the last day of my vacation, I have a TON of stuff to do because I put it all off until the last minute. Ugh, I am such a procrastinator. I have to fix that.

Have you read Curio? What did you think of it?

A Reading Slump

reading slump

I think I have been reading the same three books for the entire month of September. I could be wrong, I’m just to lazy to go check it out.

The thing is, one book has me dreading reading. I keep trying to finish it and I am finally down to the last few pages. I was trying to get to where I was only reading one book at a time, but…I just can’t do it. I feel like I am not reading enough if I don’t have more than one book going at a time. So, I am thinking I will go back to reading one physical book, one audio book, and one e-book. I haven’t even made it through the book for author of the month, so there won’t be one for September.

Let’s face it, September has been a terrible month for me. I don’t know what happened. I have had the hardest time with life. I am riddled with anxiety and depression. All I want to do is sleep. I should possibly consider seeing a doctor to make sure all my levels are okay.

On top of all of that, I have been terribly stressed at work. I’m just not working as fast as I should. I’m so annoyed with myself. And the book that has been holding me back from reading is just annoying. I haven’t been writing.

It makes you question what you are doing with your life. Which is funny, because the biggest annoyance of all of this is not having the drive to read as much as I have been. I feel like life is falling apart around me and I’m at a loss on where to start.

So today I will finish this boring book I have been reading. Write a review for it and be done with it. Then I will pull out the book that I have been dying to read and I will more than likely power through it and be done before the end of September. At least, that is my goal, to finish at least two more books before September comes to a close. Then in October I will read my little heart out.

But reading slumps suck! I know it’s one book to blame for it all, but I couldn’t not finish it. It’s one that I am reading for a review and I am tired of doing DNF book reviews.
