Lately, I have been having the hardest time drumming up the energy to read and it’s driving me crazy!!! I have no idea what’s wrong with me but I just don’t have the drive. I’m dying…
I’ve been reading Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton series and I’m 100 pages into the 5th book. I have been on the 100th page for 5 days. Did I mention I’m dying? This has happened to me a couple times before but it’s never been this bad. It’s usually just a couple of days of staring longingly at my books but then I get over it and am fine. This may be the longest I've gone reading only a paragraph or so at a time and then just stopping. I used to be able to read about 4-6 books a week- what has happened to me?!?!
Maybe I read the Bridgerton series too fast? Maybe I need some other genre to distract me. Maybe I’m dying? But I have no desire to pick up another book. Cue panicked crying!
I sat in my library this weekend and just looked at my piles of books hoping one would jump out at me and spark my interest. There was no spark. The sadness was overwhelming.
This book funk is strong in me! I think I need to stop binging shows. They really just distract me so completely that I can’t focus on anything else until I finish what I'm binging. I get that way with books too but not now, apparently….
Book funks are the absolute worst!
-Happy (future) Reading!
