#BookBlogtober Series: Tips to Get Out of a Reading Slump

Thank you again so much Entertainingly Nerdy for showing me this prompt post on Twitter, and thank you so much to the amazing Jenniely for creating this last year!

Honestly I feel like I’m the worst to give advice on getting out of slumps because I’m prone to having six-nine month long slumps, sometimes more. You can tell if you look at my blog before I got more consistent. You could see how many months could go by between my good moments when I’d want to try again. I’m just honestly so thankful that I haven’t slipped again.

  • Watch your favorite movie, TV show for an hour or two. Just completely remove your mind from reading at the moment.
  • Read your favorite review that you ever wrote, and reminisce on how good it felt to write it
  • Get out of your reading place (physically) and explore somewhere else for a bit
  • Listen to some music
  • Watch a music video that speaks to your soul
  • Take a break
  • See if you’re willing to do a buddy read. Sometimes reading with someone else can get you out of a slump

  1. Buddy reads are for sure a good way to break a slump, because hearing other people get excited about a book makes me more excited to read it. But also, if I’m just not feeling reading in general, I love taking some time to do something else, because I feel like that’s my brain’s way of saying, “That’s enough words out of you now. Give me something else, please.”
