Real Talk: Reading Slump

I don’t know what my deal has been, but I have been in the biggest reading slump of my life. And honestly? It’s kind of sad.

I grew up in a household where we made twice weekly trips to the Library. The rule was this: if you can carry it, you can check it out. I became very strong and excellent at balancing books, sometimes stacked all the way to my chin.

Over the last year, my motivation and passion for reading has waned. It’s not that I don’t have time; I have plenty of time to binge watch television, after all. I haven’t found a book that makes it difficult to not put down. I miss that feeling of being sucked into a world and being frustrated at the drudgery of adult responsibilities, spending every free moment soaking up words and disappearing into a story, only to be devastated when it’s done.

Three years ago, my goal was to read 150 books in a year, which I nearly hit. This year, my goal was to read 52, which I’m 24 books behind on. I know it’s just a number, but it’s still frustrating.

So: here’s to finding some books I can’t put down and purposely dedicated daily time to reading. ❤
