Hi guys, welcome to Book Munchies’ Musing about Things: A Discussion (Post). Inspired by memes such as Books and a Beat‘s Musing Monday & Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s Caffeinated Confessions (etc.), this is a Book Munchies discussion post, where I’ll be rambling about (mostly) book-related things and hopefully you guys will join in on the fun too (:
So today’s topic is: Books slumps (and other news)
So I’ve been kind of in a book slump these last few weeks, both reading and writing reviews. /sigh.
I think it might have been because I hit a solid book hangover after finishing Words in Deep Blue (a dang good book). I managed The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue (which was pretty adorable and hilarious), but after that nothing seemed to fit my mood.
So I resorted to the re-reading. I’ve just been re-reading old favourites for the last two weeks and I think I’m getting my reading groove back. I might not read the whole book, but these bits and parts that I can rely to up a smile on my face is definitely helping.
With the summer rolling in I’m starting to get back into my mood for cute sunny contemporary YA. There’s a ton of them out there I was pretty excited for and are now out so I’m hoping I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo will get me right back on track!
Now reviewing – that on the other hand I’m still feeling the slump. I just feel like I don’t know what to talk about or how to talk about the books.
I’ve definitely been putting off a lot reviews and only writing the ARCs because I kinda feel obligated. I’m trying to just write my really short reviews because they’re quick and I can just babble on about how I love the book without necessarily being coherent. Definitely beats feeling like I’m sitting in front of the computer for hours on end and only writing 5 lines…
So friends, my questions for you guys is:
What do you do when you’re in a slump? Reading and/or writing?
Do you have a go-to-book to help out of slumps?

It was a little anti-climatic since I’ve actually been done school for about 8 months and have been working the last 6, but it was still really nice to see my classmates and officially be done, done!
