My Reading Slump + Tips to Get Back Into the Swing of Things

reading slump tips how to start reading again

I have a confession to make: I am going through the biggest reading slump I have had in years. So much so, that my Goodreads account keeps signing me out from lack of use. I am currently 4 books behind schedule to complete my goal of 50 books. I have been setting myself this goal every year since 2016 and only completed it once, so I am not too bummed if I won’t make it. However, until September I was well ahead of my goal, only to fall behind spectacularly last October. So what happened?

book review december 2018

Better late than never, but I still wanted to wrap up my reading of 2018 with some reviews of the last books I read in the year. This will also mark the last traditional book review blog post. As of next month, I will be doing these reviews in a video format, because I just love to talk about books and so I feel that videos might work better in this care. I read 6 books in total, which pushed my grand total to 42 read books in 2018, covering over 18,500 pages. Here we go!

Book Review | November 2018

Better late than never, but I did read a couple of books in November and I just hadn’t gotten around to reviewing for you just yet. I completely forgot to take pictures and with the dark days, I can’t really take any pictures later in the day. However, I tried my best and I hope you can still get a good idea of what the covers of these books looked like. Here are the books I read last November.

Book Review | September 2018

I know we’re halfway through October, but I haven’t forgotten about my monthly reading update. I was a bit slow to start my reads in September. After my last read of August left me quite underwhelmed I felt like I didn’t know what I wanted to start reading next and so it took me some weeks before I got back on the reading train. I ended up reading 3 books in September, which given how busy work and life has been I still deem a success.  book review september 2018

Book Review | June 2018

Just a few more days until my summer vacation starts, which means I will have finally more time to read. Because July was another meagre reading month. It’s not that I don’t want to read, I just haven’t had the energy. The last few weeks leading up to the summer vacation are always the busiest and thus I haven’t been wanting to do much more than just sit, sleep and switch my brain off. Reading is just too much of an effort and doesn’t really fit into my busy brain. However, I still managed to read 2 books last month.  book review june 2018

Book Review | May 2018

May was a very sad month for reading. I only finished two books. I did start another book, but I just didn’t get around to finishing it. So by now I’m 5 books behind on reaching my Goodreads goals, but I just haven’t felt that inspired by reading these past few months. I think I have hit a bit of a reading slump. That said, I did get my hands on some newer releases and I think that will take me back into the swing of things. I just have to finish my current read so I can get on with something else.  book review may 2018
