I’m pretty lucky that I haven’t experienced a reading slump in ages. However, I find myself in the middle of a reviewing slump. I have been in denial about it but as my list of books to be reviewed just keeps getting longer, I think it’s time to admit that I’m in a slump. It’s not that I don’t want to review the books that I read – I really want to because I’ve gone through some pretty good ones lately and I would love to spread the word about them. But the words aren’t coming and I don’t want to force myself to review when I’m not in the mood to do so. Factors that have contributed to this include being really busy at work and just wanting to relax and read on week nights. And on weekends, I usually hang out with friends or catch up on chores. Reading is easier because I can squeeze it in whenever I have some free time like when I’m on the train. I’m hoping this is just a phase and when things calm down, I might be able to come up with decent reviews again. Maybe I can even work on mini reviews instead.
In the meantime, here’s a list of some lovely books that I’ve recently read and would love to review if only I had the time and inclination to do so:
Truly by Ruthie Knox
The Chocolate Heart by Laura Florand
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Sorrow’s Knot by Erin Bow
Snowfall by Mary Ann Rivers
I feel kind of bad that I haven’t been able to review these because I would really recommend them to other readers. I guess I’ll just wait and see how it goes. Oh and only a few more days until I fly home to Manila and EWein Special Ops starts! Watch out for that.
