How do I get out of a reading slump?
I always reread an old favourite when I’m in a slump, or I’ll try a recommended YA book because they tend to be easier to get through!
Sounds like a good idea. Thanks!
Old favs like Hanna said above
Which genre do you like?
Romance, mystery, true crime, etc.
Honesty…. Go buy 5-10 books of different genres…. come home after a day of work…. masturbate…. go to sleep…. wake up and read the first book on the list from cover to cover… repeat every day until you run out of books to read….This works people I have done this and it is fantastic.
Sorry for the honesty people.
Try rereading a book that you love.
not bad advice
Read goosebumps books,,trust me
I thought about doing that reading goosebumps
Go into a bookstore. Trust me.
I work an insane amount of hours and often can’t trust myself to pick up a book for fear I won’t put it down and not get everything done. So audiobooks have become an amazing way to keep “reading” while doing other things. 🙂 it is especially great for biographies and less complicated plots. (Or my attention wanders). Give it a try! 🙂 xx
Read something outside of your genre. Harry Potter got me out a reading slump. As did the 50 shades series.
Go on Amazon and Good Reads. Put in your genre and read reviews. That always gets me going and motivated as I want to know and feel what everyone else knows and feels.
When I am in a slump I often will get a collection of short stories. It helps when I have a hectic schedule or just trouble concentrating to have my reading done in one sitting and it helps get me involved in reading again…They have collections for almost any genre of literature you like.
Try a Steampunk genre story, they are so much fun with the action and all the gadgets. Cherie Priest has a good series.
So I commented somewhere earlier in this post that reading outside my genre helped me with slumps. What has also helped was perusing new books on Amazon, NY Times bestseller list and Pinterest. NY times also has a page called ‘By the book’ which is interviews with authors. Reading blogs… All of these options have helped me out of reading slumps.
