I’ve hit a slump, guys. Well, maybe it’s not a slump, it’s more just like I don’t feel like reading right now.
As a book blogger, it kind of sucks because I love posting reviews and discussing books with others and doing all the things book related, but I think I’m just feeling burnt out and I need a break.
It’s natural, though, to go through waves of interest. Sometimes you’re more into one thing than you are another, and that’s perfectly fine. It’s just when you let that thing you started with become such a huge part of your life that you feel lost without it.
I’ve been trying to read some books I’m interested in – like, very interested in – and I’m just not connecting with it at all. I felt the same way this time last year, too, so it might be a seasonal thing. I just don’t have the desire to read.
And that’s okay.
I’ve been more in the mood to watch anime and Netflix than anything, lately. I want to do more than just center a lot of my life around books and I think that’s mainly where this not wanting to read feeling is stemming from.
It could also be environmental: if you’re stressed out from work or family or whatever you’ve got going on in your life, that could easily affect your reading, too. I know it’s affected mine because I’ve just been stressed out lately, too.
So if you’re just not in the mood to read and you’re usually an avid reader, then don’t fret because it’s probably just something going on in your life that’s causing it, you’re not reading the right thing at the right time, or you just need a break. Heck, it could even be a combination of all three, but don’t let it get you down.
Let’s Chat! ≧◡≦
Is anyone else going through something similar? What do you do in the meantime?
