Hey guys! I am currently in one of the biggest book slumps I have ever been in. I can’t finish or focus on a book no matter how interesting it is!
Ever reader knows this heartbreak. It feels like a breakup but much worse because you see books everywhere. In the shops. On your phone. In your room staring at you longingly. But you just can’t read it.
You tell your books, ‘it’s not you it’s me’ but what next? How do you fill the void in your heart?
I have tried to fulfil the void with many different things:
The standard distraction from a book slump or what can be the cause. I am an all or nothing person when it comes to TV. I’ll either watch the whole series in one go or not watch TV for weeks. I’ve just finished the Ted Bundy Tapes documentary and it was terrifying. Although if I hear ‘it can’t be him he’s handsome’ one more time I won’t be able to deal!
I’ve neglected my roller skates for so long I’ve practically forgot how to stand up in them. I went skating with my friends and it was just so fun and completely distressed me.
Ye I am that 26 going on 70 person who cross-stitches! It’s relaxing and there are so many amazing patterns. From subversive to Disney, I have been lost in that cross-stitch Pinterest rabbit hole. I just finished a project with Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared. It is so dang creepy!
This is where all my time has went! I’ve played so many games trying to find my type. I’d highly recommend Escape Cube Paradox, the story is amazing and the puzzles are fun to work out. I’ve also been loving Spyro and Bit Trip Runner 2. Let me know if you would be interested in more talk about games on the blog!
That’s pretty much all I’ve been doing during my slump. Hopefully I pick up a book soon but until then I guess I’ll have to game!
What do you do when you are in a book slump?
