Reading Slump | NaBloPoMo

This post is a pure plea for advice. In a post I wrote a couple of days ago I mentioned being in the worst reading slump of my life. The situation has not changed. If anyone has any advice on how I can motivate myself to read again or any book recommendations to combat a slump please leave me a comment!

Until tomorrow lovely people,

  1. I’m not an expert, but I sure did suffer a major slump the first five months of this year. 😦 Just got back on a roll in September. Here are a few I can think of, hope it helps. πŸ™‚

    -Pick something up from a genre that you don’t normally read, or if studying a foreign language try that, even if it’s a children’s book (I’m currently reading Goldilock and the Three Brears in French, lol)
    -Read a novella/series of novellas/short stories to get back into the swing. Keep it super short and sweet.
    -Try a graphic novel.
    -Or chill and try not to suffer too much as you ride out the slump, it’ll pass. They always do.

    Good Luck!



  2. When I’m in a reading slump I tend to go for something I know I’ll like, and I know I can get through quickly. Usually that’s a Kurt Vonnegut or Neil Gaiman book I haven’t read yet (though I’m running out of both).
    Sometimes I’ll try to break out of the slump by reading about something that’s been on my mind. Like a book about hallucinations (the Oliver Sacks book Hallucinations to be specific).
    I usually go for something I can get through quickly in order to feel good about the progress I’m making in the book, but sometimes a challenging read works, too. I guess I’m no help really!


    1. I definitely need to read some more Neil Gaiman, I feel like I’m missing out on a gem there. Haha, I guess you just have to go on your feeling at the time. I think I’m going to go on the suggestion of a quick read as that’s what a couple of people have said. Thanks for the comment! πŸ™‚

  3. Kangaruni

    Terry Pratchett is my go-to slump author. During the reading era of my life, he used to be my filler author, my breather so to say between other books. Discworld series is bae

      And thre’s a Christmas themed one called Hogsfather so it’s quite perf for the season. Additionally I would suggest try a romcom novel, they may be the junk food of the book world, but they’re fine in moderation;)
