Reading Slump

Helllooooo Everybody!


Truth:  I love to read.

Also truth:  I struggle to read.

I follow quite a few Bookstagram and BookTube accounts, and these people go nuts in the reading department.  Like I’m talking over 4-5 books each month.  I apply myself to a much lower standard, like 1-2 books per month.  I was doing pretty good in April and May, where I read two books each month.  But then June came and went, and I did not finish a single book.

I’m about halfway through Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and I’m on chapter two of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.  I’m in a horrible rut where I want to read, and I’m excited to read the books on my tbr, but I can’t bring myself to actually sit down and open one.

My strong desire to read but inability to actually take the time to do it is a contributing factor to my suspicion that I have ADD – but that’s a story for another time.

As I’m writing this, James and I are getting ready for a Vegas vacay, and I’m hoping to get a lot of reading done while I relax, but we’ll see.  I’m bringing a whole arsenal though, just in case our flights get delayed.

If ANYONE has ANY tips on how to get oneself to open up and finish a book, hit me up PLEASE.  I am STRUGGLING and DESPERATE to fix myself.

What do you do to get yourself out of a reading slump?

Let me know!

Much Love,
