HELP PLEASE!!

So, I feel like I should be really honest with you guys because you all are book worms here, and if you guys don’t understand the plight of a fellow bookworm then who will?!

So this is going to be me ranting and grumbling about my problem! So HELP!!๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Here goes nothing:

Oh my god!! Guys!!? I am in a slump..or rather am going to be in a slump!! Tragedy! Disaster! The world is going to end! NOOOOO!!! ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿคฏ


ME: Soโ€ฆI am not enjoying this book.

ME: (overly optimistic โ€ฆ.claps hands) Okay! Not an issue let’s try another one.


ME: I am not enjoying this at all! (internally screaming AAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaa) ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

A few hours later,
my mom comes to my room and asks me,”What’s wrong?”
ME:

MY LIFE IS RUINED!!

I need your hepl!! Please suggest some books that will help me get out of this ASAP! It’s approaching fast. I can sense it. It’s gonna kill me! It’s disastrous! This is why I haven’t been able to post anything for quite a long time. (a week)๐Ÿ˜“

I usually read fantasy, in case you didnt know. But other genres work for me too. So, please plase please recommend a few books to me. I always seem to be able to recommend books to people to get out of a slump, unfortunately, I always recommend books that I have already read.

Recommend a few books to me please!!! Save me from this monster! ๐Ÿ’€๐Ÿ‘น

THE READING SLUMP!!

UNTIL NEXT TIME!

(If I am alive ๐Ÿ˜ฐ)

  1. I recommend We Hunt the Flame, Children of Blood and Bone, An Ember in the Ashes, A Song of Wraiths and Ruin, and The Wrath and the Dawn because those are some of my favorites!

  4. Hello Ashmita! Why don’t you try reading short stories and poetry (just give them a try.) It will give you a break from long inter-plotted books and will help you read more. You can read one short story or poetry at a time, it will give you satisfaction that you read something and then you can start reading the books again!

    You can also try reading novellas.

    Alomg came a Spyder is a quick and funny read, you can try that.
    Malgudi days is a classic yet have funny and witty stories, if you have not read that.
    I remember you like Enid Blyton, why don’t you reread one of your fav books from childhood?
    I’ve been reading “The Fascinators” lately and enjoying it so far, can give that a try.
    If you want suggestions for poetry books, I’ll shoot with some as well!

  10. Book slumps are the actual worst, aren’t they?
    I highly recommend that you just pick a book on your TBR out of your comfort zone. I give this advice and people always ask why, but it’s because I totally believe that slumps can ( sometimes ) be the product of too much similarity!
    I love fantasy too and found that rereading If I Stay and then getting into a contemporary-fantasy book Summer of Salt helped a lot!
    Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚
