Ladies and gents, I’m stuck. I was oh, so excited to get my groove on for blogging today, but every time I open up a WordPress post, I just stare blankly at it. And stare. And stare. And then go back to listening to my audiobook.
I think I have entered into the dreaded….book blogging slump. Book blogging burnout? I’m not entirely sure what it is, but I’m totally lost. I have loads of things to do – reviews, ideas for posts (I’ve got a really fun one I’ve been playing with and I even got my butt on creating that tag I had an idea for 3 months ago), tons and tons of tagggggssss. But all I’ve done today is…look at the Reader, listen to my book, and walk around my house. Oops.
And this is also coupling perhaps on the start of a reading slump. Literally not a single book sounds good. I have tons of library books, quite a few e-ARCs, and a TON of physical books on my TBR…and NONE SOUND GOOD. I just stare at my bookshelves, desperate for a book to cry out to me and I’ve got nothing.
So, I’m failing. I have a few ideas of how to get out of my reading slump (rereading a favorite book and my favorite contemporary ever might be calling my name), and I’m guessing an idea for the blogging slump is to take a breather or force myself to try and get back into the groove? But for now, I may go a little quiet until inspiration hits me (why there might not be a Princesses Read tomorrow).
As for the third post, I have officially taken the dive into the infamous and beloved by most Shadowhunters series. I read the Infernal Devices quite a few years ago, and I only faintly remember it. But I knew that I loved it.
Now, I know people either tend to love or hate City of Bones, but so far, the audiobook has been quite good (it also be my love of Mae Whitman – OMG SHE IS AMAZING AND I’M CRYING) and I’m super intrigued. Might be seeing what all the hype might be about.
SO, if I’m a bit MIA for a few days, it’s because I’m trying to get my butt together over the slumps; trying to find some princess inspiration; or going into an intense Shadowhunters audiobook spiral.
