I know, I know. That title is a weird one and seems confusing. It makes sense to talk about being in a reading slump, but not when you’re in the opposite of a reading slump. Especially when I put the word stuck in the beginning.
We all know what it means to be in a dreaded reading slump. It’s a time when the amount of reading goes into a huge decline. It usually sucks and then that miraculous book ends up in your hands and suddenly you find yourself out of a reading slump. This cycle comes and goes and is different for everyone.
Now, what happens when you find yourself in a small cycle of devouring book after book with barely taking a breath in between?
Just in time for Valentine’s Day to have come and gone, I find myself in a particular reading rise or boom or whatever you want to call it. I find myself devouring romance book after romance book. To the point where I’ve been neglecting the two books I borrowed from the library. To the point where I seriously don’t want to put my phone down because I tend to only buy romance books as ebooks.
While I am obviously all for reading as much as you can and want, I don’t like that I putting this easy reads (at least for me) before all the other books that I’ve been wanting to read. Especially since I keep looking for new romance books to read once I finish one. I’m also racking up a lot of credit card charges which something that I keep telling myself I’m going to be better about.
On the other hand though, just how we sometimes go through a reading slump, maybe this is a similar situation where I simply need to enjoy these fun and easy reads before diving back into more dense or thought provoking or slightly slower reads. Especially considering that I don’t write reviews for any of the purely romance books (I don’t know why, I just don’t).
Maybe I just need to take my credit card off my iCloud account so the temptation isn’t there?
So, has anyone been in this kind of situation before? Have you ever been down a rabbit hole of sorts of one genre or maybe series where you barely remembered to take care of yourself? I really want to know!!
