A Reader’s Slump
- By: Jessica Faust | Date: Mar 02 2015
On my post for How Much of the Book Do You Read? this comment came up:
I try so hard to read a book all the way through–especially if I’ve bought it!
If it gets to the point where I’m just skimming to read and don’t care and am not retaining what I’ve read, I’ll stop. Every once in a while, I’ll skip to the end to see if it gets better (And I never read the end first!).
Sometimes, it’s hard to say if the book isn’t for me, or if it’s because I’m headed into a slump. I think I’m headed into a slump now. I didn’t love a major YA title that many other people are loving and buzzing about. I put down two other books without finishing them for the moment because I wasn’t enjoying them, and I’ve been looking forward to both. I picked up the one again two days ago and managed to finish it BUT didn’t really enjoy it and I normally love the author!
So am I slumping? Did I just have three not-me titles in a row? I don’t know!
