I wouldn't really call what I'm going through a slump...but I'm not sure what else to call it. I want to read but nothing looks good. I have at least 250 books on my shelves + another 350 in ebooks (at least) but I can't seem to choose a book! It's frustrating!
It all started this past Friday night when I was getting ready to go on a jaunt/bus trip with my church. I wanted to take a book to read on the bus and for the life of me couldn't choose one. I ended up throwing 2 novels and my ereader in the bag figuring something would click. That's when I ended up reading Black Ice by Anne Stuart and it was wonderful. After that...back to the drawing board.
I figured I would read a book for The Book Binge and chose the new Stephanie Laurens...which after 3 days and only 200 pages I DNF'd. Ug. Help. Last night I called a halt to my frustration and decided to hang all the pictures, etc. that I've been meaning to hang for forever and that helped. But this morning when I wanted to choose something to read at lunch today...nothing. Wahhhhhhh! I've not had this issue before. Again, it's not that I don't want to read, but can't seem to find one I want to read. (I did pick up a couple of the yaoi manga's I had but even those took forever for me to grab..I only did it cuz I knew others were waiting to get them after me.)
I usually mix my romance sub-genre's up so that this doesn't happen...reading a historical, then a contemporary, then a paranormal, etc. each week....but, but, but....arg. It's not helping!
What do you all do in these situations? Have any of you ever been in a situation like this? What do you recommend for therapy? lol I need all the help I can get.
