I Must Confess...

Friday, October 3, 2014

I must confess... I have been the worst book blogger ever. I am in a majorly terrible book rut. I haven't finished a book (that wasn't for school) in a full month. I'm in the middle of three books right now, and all of them are great, but I'm just not reading them.

I feel like this is a situation where I would tell a book, "It's not you, it's me."

I am currently on track with my reading challenge on goodreads, and believe it or not at one point I was 15 books ahead of schedule FIFTEEN!!!!  Now look where I am... *sighs heavily*

Ever since Heir of Fire I've been barely getting by, but let's be honest, it started before that. Ever since I started school, I haven't been reading near as much. There are just so many things to do!

So tell me, have you ever gone through a reading rut? If so, how did you conquer it?


  1. I'm in a reading slump right now. The book I'm reading isn't bad. I just don't feel like reading much at the moment.

    It's cyclical, though; I'll end up in a reading groove again, eventually.

  2. If it makes you feel better I am 7 books behind schedule on my goodreads challenge. lol :) Don't worry you will be out of your slump faster than you know it. It happens to everyone. Hang in there. My advice: put aside half hour of reading time every day and just sit down and do it. Then before you know it you will remember why you love reading so much and want to read way past that 30 min mark. Good luck!

    1. Thanks! I need to do that! I hate being in reading slumps. It just makes me so sad.

  3. Oh gosh. I'm in the same place. Right now, I'm six behind on my Goodreads goal. Definitely not ideal. School has an annoying way of depleting my energy. My plan is to set aside time each day where I make myself read in hopes that I'll get in a groove again. We'll see how well that plays out. Good luck, Amanda!
