Hi Everyone, my name is Sara Santana and I’ve been in a book slump for about two years now.
I hate it.
Now, I think there are a lot of reasons why I’m in this slump. I mean, don’t get me wrong – I’m reading and I’m still reading more than a lot of other people are. I’m 20 books in for 2021, which ain’t bad and I read 80 books last year. But I used to read 100, 150, 200 books a year and I’m just not doing that anymore. Part of that is we’re in the middle of a global pandemic and even though we technically have more time on our hands, I’m also depressed because its a global pandemic so I’m not doing the things I love – i.e. reading – as much as I normally do. I’m also so much busier than I was in 2013, 2014 or 2015 when I was getting through 150-200 books. I was working way less hours and for waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay less stressful jobs. I also am just in a slump, that unexplained, I don’t FEEL like reading most things. My favorite genre is fantasy, hands down, and I’ve been struggling to read fantasy for the past year or so and most of what is on my TBR list and in my TBR pile is fantasy, because its my favorite genre!
It’s horrible and gets me nowhere haha.
