So by now you know I’m in a reading slump. But I am not one to sit idle while the city burns. That’s right. If I’m going down, I’m going down fighting. And you know what that means…

That’s right. It’s on like donkey kong.

So what have I done? I took you’re lovely advice that y’all left in the comments and made a master plan of attack.

Phase One: The Cold Turkey Cutoff

First off, most of you advised me to take some time off from reading. So that’s what I’m doing. I’ve already had 3 days without reading and I actually feel a bit better, a little more relaxed. It’s weird sitting in silence, doing other things because usually I have an audiobook playing, but it’s also been kinda nice!

Phase Two: The Netflix Binge

Next, most of you said to do something else with my spare time, like binge on Netflix. So Netflix, here I come! I’ve been meaning to watch more of Jessica Jones and catch up on ReignΒ anyway.

Phase Three: The Fluff Read

Finally, when I’m finished Netflixing, I plan on easing back into reading with a light, fluffy read or a graphic novel/comic book, like some of you suggested. I’m thinking of going with The CrownΒ by Kiera Cass (even though I can’t stand Eadlyn–but that’s a different post), what do you think?

So that’s it! What do y’all think of my master plan of attack? Think I can take down this reading slump?

  1. Sounds like a great plan although another idea is re reads. I sometimes do that when I can’t face a new book. Re read something I love, not from cover to cover, just my favourite bits.

    Hope you win the fight πŸ™‚
