Hey friends! I just wanted to hop on here today and say hello. I was doing so well with posting at the beginning of October then I started reading a book I wasn’t feeling. Now I believe I am again in a reading slump. They have been hitting me really hard this year, maybe it’s that my reading taste have changed and I’m not ready to admit that to myself. This year I’ve found myself gravitating more towards romance books when I am primarily a fantasy reader, however looking back I’ve barely read any fantasy books this year, and that makes me so sad.
Another reason for my book slump, since August I’ve been really getting into k-pop specifically BTS. I’ve fallen in so deep with this band, it’s honestly all I can think about. I’ve been really liking them since I started listening to them but I fell in love with them when I watched the Saudi Arabia concert. Man can these boys perform! Seriously this concert was mind glowingly good, Hobi and Jungkook were really coming for me. Of course the others were fantastic too. I really want to write a whole post about my love for them soon.
I’m really bummed out that I wasn’t able to get to the Apple orchard but work schedules kinda messed that up. Fall is my favorite time of year and this year it seems to be falling a little flat. I haven’t really done anything that I normally like to do. However,next weekend I want to carve pumpkins, and I’m taking the kids to a Halloween themed fundraiser and then to the zoo, so I’m hoping that will be a good weekend. Maybe I’ll throw in some horror movies.
My son turned 13 years old on the 18, and it blows my mind how much he’s grown. He’s almost taller than me, not that I’m that tall anyways but still. I’ve also been having a difficult time with him and his behaviour the past few months and I’m not sure how to improve that. I knew moody teenage years were coming but I wasn’t expecting it to hot so hard.
Back to reading, I’ve only read 4 books this month and I might be able to finish the two I’m currently reading but I can’t see it being more than that. Which bums me out because I had a 12 book tbr. I’m trying not to be to hard on myself there’s still two more months left of the year. I have a bunch of Christmas/holidays books I’ve been saving so maybe I’ll start some of those in November.
How do you deal with reading slumps ?
