I love books. I never would have started a blog about them, allowing me to write about them everyday if I didn’t, but I am in the midst of a reading slump and so there doesn’t seem to be a book review post in sight.
Books are everything to me, if I don’t give myself time to read for a little bit everyday, I think I might go mad. However, this doesn’t mean that I don’t get the disease that all book lovers hate called readingslumpitis.
A (tragic) disease in which a person desires to read from the bottom of their soul, but they just can’t seem to get interested in reading any books they try to read.

Now I could lie to you and say that this is a diesease that I currently have and am trying desperately to recover from, but that is just not the case. I am reading, just in drastically small slow portions to sate my daily need for reading before I go on to focus on other things (meaning YouTube, movies, and (a little bit of eating/exersize/and homework.))
I am at a point where I just don’t feel like reading as much and a part of me is ok with it (kinda). I am interested in pretty much everything. I am like a dog that gets distracted by anything that crosses its path to the point where a conversation will start about a road trip, and end on the reasons I used to believe in fairies.
As of right now, my brain has decided that it needs to binge watch Markiplier, Dan & Phil, and random minecraft videos. I still read between eating, going out, going to class, and watching videos, but these last few days have been less about books and more about treating my soul to a lot of laughter.
I want to say that this is a post saying that I am going to stop getting distracted and go back to my first love as soon as I can, but the truth is I am simply in the mood for enjoying a different form of media and I am ok with that.
I hope to get to finishing a book soon, but for now I am succumbing to my childlike distractive whims.
I hope you enjoyed reading. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. What are your experiences with readingslumpitis? Do you ever feel like your (not really) in a reading slump?
-Till next time!
