Since last month, I have been struggling with a reading slump. I always get carried away with TV shows. And SCHOOL! School is a big hindrance from my reading time. I can’t even read a single book. But I read one book last month which is Ruin and Rising and I definitely loved it even though I struggled a bit.
So today, I have been trying to read and read to escape from the ‘reading slump’ prison. Believe it or not, I have been there for months. It’s really frustrating, and the fact that I read fifteen books last May. FIFTEEN! I never read fifteen books in my life. So that was a big achievement.
Every day, I am telling myself to read. But the other side of me is telling that I should not. Well, I always end up using my phone checking social media and take pictures of my books. But those are not the way I get out from reading slump.
And just recently, I finally got out of my slump.
What I do to get out of it is to read a light contemporary book. Reading a short book always encourages me to read because I always tell myself, ‘this book is short’, and ‘you can do this’. I only read a big, intimidating book after my reading slump is gone and (hopefully) will never come back again.
