TGIF is a weekly feature hosted by Ginger over at GReads. It’s a fun way to end the week by recapping posts and answering the question of the week.
This week's Question:
Reading Blues: We all get them from time to time. What helps you overcome those reading slumps when nothing seems to grab your attention?
I don't really get into reading slumps. The only time I am not reading is when I can't decide what to read next. I have so many books that I want to read that sometimes I get overwhelmed and can't decide what I am in the mood for. I enjoy reading contemporary YA, but I have to throw in a little paranormal to keep things interesting. I'm still not a fan of dystopians (and I really hate the word 'dystopia' - it's thrown around too much recently) so I am always leery of reading them.
I borrow a lot of books from the library, so I never know when my reserved books will be available. Sometimes (like today) I have 5 books that came in at the same time. Am I going to read all 5 of them? I hope to get to all of them in the next 2 weeks before they are due back, but again, that depends on what I am in the mood to read.
I also hate being disappointed in a book I am reading. Sometimes they don't live up to the hype and I have a hard time finishing them. That is when I have to find a really awesome book to read next to get me back in the groove.
When all else fails, I get my kids to pick out my next book for me. I can always count on them to steer me in the right direction! I really love when I tell them what the book is about and they tell me "That's stupid." Thanks honey, that helps a lot. LOL
Does anyone else have too many books to choose from? What do you do when you are in a reading slump?
