My first fiction book of 2018.... 4 days in and I‘m slacking 🙃 all whilst my lb sits beside me watching grown adults playing Lego on YouTube 🙄

PurpleyPumpkin I‘m finding that I‘m slacking a bit too. I thought I‘d get so much reading done since I‘m still off work this week, but it‘s not happening as planned. 😅 Love your cup btw! 2y

So busy with work and Adulting that I'm in a total read funk, just can't seem to get into anything...

Cinfhen It passes but when you‘re in the midst of a reading funk, it sucks! Sorry 😐 hope your next read , grabs you! 2y
hermyknee I've had those! The best way for me to get out of a reading slump is to read something really fast paced like a mystery/thriller. Especially YA because those are so easy to read and finish quickly. Here are a few that helped me: 2y

Feeling motivated to finish my challenge, find it hard to believe I'm only 15 books in 😳 does not help that I have several reading lists and endless Litsy inspiration 😳
