I feel like I’m in a reading slump.

Looking at my Goodreads list, just the first page with the last 20 books, only three made it to my best bitten list. Everything else fell under the four star mark. And I just reviewed two books in a row that ended up being 1s. That’s unusual for me.

I don’t feel particularly mopey or blah or anything. And of course I don’t go into books expecting not to like them. Why the hell would I do that? Who reads like that? I WANT to like the books that I’m reading. But I’m just not feeling most of what I’m picking up, I guess.

Of the 20 11 were books off my shelves, meaning not books I expressly received for review. Maybe I’m just not picking winners right now. I have no idea. I feel like I’m truly in a funk, though. I need something I pick up to break the mold. Really wow me.

Let’s tone that down. I don’t even need to be wowed. Just get me to really like it. Or enjoy it.  It could even be kind of bad, but if it’s a fun read I’ll take that. Anything just to break this doldrum up.

  1. I feel ya on the whole reading slump thing. I’m not sure if it’s the colder weather or what but it’s been pretty tough for me to really love a book lately.

    Hope you find something that brings you out of your slump soon! 🙂
