I haven‘t had a strong reading year so far. I‘ve been quite busy this year and haven‘t read a lot of books that held my attention. Part of the reason is also because I‘ve been playing a lot of video games lately (assassins creed and sims4 mostly).

Hopefully a change in genre will kick me out of my #readingslump #mystery

keys_on_fire I have been in exactly the same boat. For some reason (pandemic maybe?), I have found it much harder to focus on reading. Playing games has been much more of an escape for me. Good luck! 10mo

This weeks Penguin newsletter has three handy hints to help you out of a slump. Any other suggestions you might add to their list…??#readingslump

JamieArc Audiobooks. I can listen to audiobooks even if I‘m in a reading slump (most of the time). 10mo
shortsarahrose Agree about audiobooks. I also think ending a day with a book is good. It helps me silence the many other thoughts in my head. 10mo
megnews Reading a novella or short book. You can accomplish this quickly and feel out of the slump. 10mo
Johanna414 Switching genres and trying something totally new sometimes helps me! 10mo

I‘ve probably picked up 10 books this month, read 50-ish pages in each book and then set it down. Just not feeling anything for some reason. 😴🥱 i think I might try ACOTAR next, maybe I‘m having a book hangover from the Folk of Air trilogy idk

coffeenebula Happening to me a lot lately…it eventually passes. #readingslump 12mo

I am struggling to get anything read these days, even books I‘m loving. Any free time I have needs to go to writing. I can‘t even make headway with audiobooks. I‘ve normally listened to them while walking Wicket, but now that I‘m walking two dogs with the arrival of Mocha, I have to think way too much while walking them to focus on an audiobook. I don‘t understand how other authors ever get any reading done. 😿

#DogsOfLitsy #ReadingSlump

marleed I bet it‘s difficult to take you head away from your own efforts. Maybe concentrating on 2 dogs during walks right now is just what your mind needs. 1y
BillBlume @marleed you might well be right about that. 1y

It's been a while since I have felt this disconnected with the world around me. Nothing is necessarily wrong but for some reason I feel lost, tired and hopeless. I feel like for no reason I am perpetually tired. Is it because I'm too tired to feel anything or is it because I'm tired of searching for hope? Maybe that's also the reason (along with an exhausting work schedule) why even in weekends I'm barely able to read these days. #readingslump

TrishB Hang on in there ❤️ I‘ve had several periods of this in the last year or so. Don‘t be too hard on yourself. We‘re all dealing with a lot. 1y
batsy Much love to you ❤️ I am experiencing the same. Feels like there's no end in sight to the uncertainty of many things... 1y
nathandrake1997 @TrishB Thank you so much ❤️ I'm trying but honestly day by day it's getting tiring to the point where even getting out of bed in the morning feels like an insurmountable task. 1y
nathandrake1997 @batsy Thank you so much ❤️ And sorry to hear that you are going through the same as well 💔 And the part about no end being in sight to the uncertainty feels so true! These days it feels as if I am tired to even feel anything, time passes by in a blur, the days blend into each other, my mind in despair, heart unable to heal it's wear and tear....sorry for meandering but, I'm tired 😓 1y

My life is such a mess right now, that I completely forgot to post my June #WrapUp

While I think my #readingslump is something of the past, my time seems to be limited more than usual.
Covid is really bad and it feels like everyone around me is contracting it, while I get their workload added to my own. So a time turner will really be appreciated right now.

I know I'm behind on my reviews, but currently I'm getting more out of reading than reviewing; and I'm choosing to do what makes me happy.
1y
Enchanted_Bibliophile P.S. This is also the reason I'm not on Litsy as often as I would like to be. 1y
bthegood @Enchanted_Bibliophile I hope things improve soon for you, keep doing the things that make your heart smile.😊 1y

I‘ve been in a bit of a reading slump lately, so I‘ve turned to two of my favorite Marissa Meyer stories. If you haven‘t read the Renegades trilogy or the Lunar Chronicles yet, you need to stop what you are doing and read them now. 100 stars out of five.

The only positive thing about this month is that the dreaded #readingslump is over.

May I'm totally only doing "mood reading"
