It's Monday! What are you reading? 09/28/2015




Ugh. I'm reading nothing, you guys. Nothing. I haven't finished a book since mid-August. I've dabbled. I've started a few books. I've grazed. But nothing is sticking.

Worse than that? The way I'm feeling about this slump:




Blerg. I'm writing this post to let people know that even though I'm not blogging or reading I'm still out here. I'm draggy, apathetic, and slumpy, but I'm still here.

Tell me what you're reading. Tell me about the amazing books in your life. Inspire me!

  1. We all hit those slumps unfortunately. What generally helps me is a fun memoir or some non fiction.

  2. Girl, I feel ya! I got into Terry Pratchett's Tiffany Aching series, and that seems to be inspiring me for the moment. Woot!

  3. I'm so sorry about your slump! That stinks. Maybe try a memoir by someone you love?

    Hmmm...what recent reads did I like? Bellweather Rhapsody was kind of dark and quirky and The Hummingbird by Stephen Kierman was really good too!

  4. What about a good graphic novel? Might break your slump. When I'm feeling out-of-sorts in a readerly sort of way, I roam the graphic novel section of my library and always find something fun.

    I recently finished the historical novel "The Chaperone" by Laura Moriarty and I really enjoyed it. I'm currently in the middle of a nonfiction book, "Flappers" by Joshua Zeitz, which is super fun, and also the classic (that I had never read) "How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents" by Julia Alvarez. The writing in that one is so beautiful. And they're basically linked short stories, which might be good for a slump. Or you could just read a book of short stories. :-)

  5. I'm reading The Kind Worth Killing-it a suspense book and it's got a great twist fairly early on. It's gettingme out of my reading funk. Good luck!

  7. Ugh - I'm sorry about your slump...those are the worst! I just read Did You Ever Have A Family and it was amazing and gave me a big, fat hangover...which I'm now curing with The Royal We.

  8. Reading slumps are the woorrrrst. I haven't finished a book in a while either, though in my case it's been do to horrendous busy-ness rather than lack of desire to read the many awesome books in my house. I do feel like it's been a while since the last book that knocked my socks off, though, so I'm ready for one of those to hit me. Any time now.

  9. I feel your pain...I had a HORRIBLE slump until about 2 weeks ago. Sometimes you just have to wait it out....I know, that isn't inspiring in the least...but it is the truth. Sigh!

  10. Sorry to hear about your reading slump. I hope it goes away soon. Its nice to see an update from you though.
    I'm currently reading The Secret Garden for the first time.

  11. I'm 'kind of' reading The Forbidden Library, but I'm more into comics these days, and Big Finish audio dramas. They are great to listen while walking on the treadmill.
    If you are into a slump, I would recommend some graphic novels, or full cast audio dramas. Maybe a change of pace or style will be good for you.

  12. Hiya, girlie! Don't worry about the slump. I still see you around, and I know all about being too busy to do much of anything.

  13. Maybe you could just string up a few of the best-of of your tweets and call it a post? ;P
