Today’s topic is: Your Go To Genre When You Are In A Reading Slump
Reading slumps can be awful. The last time I experienced one was shortly after I graduated from college a few years ago. Due to not having extra free time to sit down and enjoy a novel and having spent so much reading textbooks, I had a hard time finding something I would like. I would put books down because the writing was terrible or the content was unwholesome. It’s actually the whole purpose of why I started this blog. When I come across a book that I really enjoyed and believe that others would too, I wanted to spread the word. Once I began this blog, I pulled out of that miserable thing called a reading slump.
In fact, The Art of Losing Yourself by Katie Ganshert was the very book that pulled me out. With that being said, if I were in a reading slump, it would probably be a contemporary. While a lot of these books deal with real issues and sometimes heavy topics, a lot of these are light and short. Sometimes I look for an author that I’ve read a million times or a completely new-to-me author just to change things up a bit.
How about you? What is your go to genre when you’re in a reading slump? Let me know in the comments below!
