I probably haven't picked up a book in a week, maybe even two. Has that stopped me from adding to the huger-than-huge TBR? No. But has it stopped me from buying the latest book in a series even though I haven't read half the books in the series? Also no.

Thanks for the extras @andrea4 🥰🥰🥰

Hi everyone! Sorry for being so absent recently. Right before the holidays I was offered a job in another state and they wanted me to start work on Jan 6th. Well I can officially say that I no longer live in Minnesota and am now living in Michigan for the second time! I‘m super excited about the job and have been enjoying what I‘m starting to get my hands into. It goes along perfectly with my two degrees. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Schnoebs That being said, I‘ve been so busy and overwhelmed at times that I haven‘t been able to concentrate. I went from reading 175 in 2019 to still not having one finished yet. It‘s been really hard and I feel like I‘m almost forcing myself to read at times even though I know that‘s probably not the best thing. 3y
Schnoebs I‘m finally making progress in a book and I‘m now more than half with through with this. It‘s just a bit frustrating because I‘m enjoying it but probably not nearly as much if I was in my normal reading mind space. 3y
Schnoebs Hopefully I‘ll get back there soon. In the mean time, I need to figure things out. My bookcases got damaged in the move so now all my poor little books are on the floor waiting for a new home to come to be shelved on. Now I just need to decide what shelves to get lol #firstworldproblems #newjob #newyear #newhouse #michigan #readingslump #slump 3y

ljuliel Good luck with your new job and the move. Your reading will come back to you as life settles down. Your mind has probably just been on so many big things lately , you need to settle in, get into a routine, then your books will be waiting when you‘re ready. 3y
Schnoebs @ljuliel that‘s exactly what I‘m hoping for. I feel like I‘m slowly starting to get there but I‘m too impatient and want to get back to my reading lol 3y
ljuliel Yes I know. You somehow feel as if you‘re missing a body part if you‘re not reading. It‘ll slowly come back. I don‘t think you can force it. 3y
Megabooks I hope everything is going well and that you‘re happy with the change!! I hope you‘re able to read more as time goes on. Congratulations! 🥂 3y
Schnoebs @Megabooks thanks! I‘m definitely excited about it all. I‘m closer to family which is nice and also a lot of my friends who I haven‘t seen in a long time. It was definitely a quick change and a big move but I‘m happy with the outcome 3y
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt didn‘t know where I should tell you but here seemed fine lol. Wanted to let you know that I‘ve officially moved to Lansing! 2y
HOTPock3tt @Schnoebs Omg that is soo exciting I‘m soo happy for you!! ♥️🎉That is only an hour and a half away from me!! Maybe we can officially meet at some point!! 🤗 2y
Schnoebs @HOTPock3tt I had a feeling that it was close lol. I‘d totally be down to meet up if you would ever want to! I love Michigan so I‘m very happy to be here permanently and I don‘t plan leave any time soon lol 2y

Super fast paced and sets the scene really quick in the first chapter, this is a great competition story with a lot of fun elements thrown into it. I loved the ACOTAR series but even though this doesn‘t grabbed me as much, it's still a fun ride and I'm starting to really want to know more about the history of this world! I'm definitely ready to see what happens next with our Queen of the Underworld.

Schnoebs @BookFrog you‘re letter had me pick this up at the beginning of the month to see if it would get me out of my slump! And it‘s totally worked! (edited) 3y

Ever since binging through two series back to back I haven‘t been able to really get into anything. It‘s been about a week since anything has grabbed my attention and I‘m a bit nervous! I decided to force myself to pick this up because I need to return it before I leave for vacation Monday. I‘m enjoying it but not sure if it‘s going to save me 🤷‍♀️

night_shift I know those feels 😞 hope it gets better soon! 3y
StayCurious I go through slumps a lot - sometimes I think I have too much choice as to what to read next and I can't make up my mind! 3y
Schnoebs @StayCurious @UnidragonFrag I think I‘m putting part of the blame on my current Harry Potter audiobook which is the order of the phoenix (aka my least favorite) and I need to get through it before my hold on the next one goes up at the library. It‘s just a current moment of so many meh reads! 3y
HOTPock3tt I know that feeling... The wicked king brought me out of my recent slump. 3y

Okay this time I think I might actually be getting out of my reading slump! I've started so many books and not finished any of them for months now, but I just picked this one up off my shelf the other day and it's going well so far! Lovely writing and engrossing points of view. I hope I finish this one! 🤞#readingslump #slump #botm #bookofthemonth

I flipped open this book while shelving it at the library yesterday and the first thing I read was:

“I fucking hate Ayn Rand.”

...and I must say I‘ve never been so jazzed to read a book so quickly. My reading has been invigorated, lol.

I‘ve been going in and out of a major funk these past couple of months and it seems to be quickly continuing into this new semester. Hopefully reading one of my favorite books will really help push me out of whatever this is.

I've been in a bit of a book #slump lately because of these guys. I discovered the show on Netflix and I'm so #obsessed. Now that I'm on season 10 I've slowed down a bit so my reading has picked back up. Has anyone read the books? Are they worth the read? The show is so amazing! #supernatural #spnfamily
