It’s no surprise that I’ve been in a wicked reading AND blogging slump. I’ve lacked any and all motivation. I was pretty sure this was the end of this here blog. Maybe I was burnt out on reading because I was blogging about it? Maybe I was abandoning the blog because I had moved on from it? Or maybe I wasn’t reading the right books? Maybe I was just in a slump? Maybe I was just never really cut out for this book blogging thing anyways? I was all ready to close shop here.
I read a book. A book that I’ll be reviewing tomorrow. A book that made me remember WHY I started this blog in the first place and ignited those feelings of wanting to write about this book furiously so that EVERYONE would go read it. I love that feeling. Lately writing a review has been more of a chore…so I just haven’t done it. Because, let’s face it, I do a lot of things I HAVE to do and don’t want to..so I wasn’t about to make this become like that. BUT THIS BOOK…it moved me in such a way that writing a review just seems natural because I WANT to talk about it. I want to sing the deserved praises for this book. Maybe I just wasn’t reading books that compelled me to do that lately? Either way, I’m really thankful for this book and how it brought my reading/blogging mojo back.
Will I stay around for a little while longer here? That’s yet to be determined. But as long as I’m reading books that compel me to talk and write about them (whether or not I like them or not)…I’ll be here.
What books have gotten you out of a slump recently? Do YOU find yourself getting into slumps because you read so much…or is it just me?
