Every week the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link.
THIS WEEK IS:How do you get out of a reading slump? Reread a favorite, Stop reading for a while, Read a brand new book, something else?
I usually re-read when it comes to getting out of reading slumps—I actually did two re-read posts recently which you can read here and here. First, I know I will like a book if it’s a re-read. There’s not a chance of me getting halfway in and hating it and falling more into a slump. Also, I usually am re-reading contemporary when it comes to avoiding or getting out of a slump. The genre is just a lot less dense than like fantasy or sci-fi. Contemporary is just light fluff that makes me happy and will really pull me out of the funk I feel.
