There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them. – Ray Bradbury
Hello wonderful readers. I can’t believe I haven’t written a blog post in so long. Truthfully I’ve been in such a massive reading slump for about the past 8 months and it’s been killing me. I’ve started so many books in the hopes of getting myself out of it but nothing seemed to be working. I tried new authors, short stories, long stories and even tried to reread my favourites, but nothing stuck. I feel so bad! So many new and exciting books have been released in that time, I even brought some, but they are still sitting either on the bookshelf or on the kindle waiting to be read and loved.
I haven’t even been blogging either. With the reading slump, I didn’t feel like doing that. I wanted to but just couldn’t get into it either.
So I decided to just take a break from both books and blogging. Not to panic, my time away was not wasted. I’ve still been bookstagramming (since I don’t have to read the actual books for that) and I’ve caught up on so many movies and TV shows that I was putting off because I was too busy reading. And now I feel better for it.
I went to a book signing in September and that was the first time that I felt excited and had the urge to read again. It’s been a slow process coming back, but I will get there.
