Let’s Chat │ Book Commitmentophobia?!


Have you ever experienced book commitmentophobia? For me this is often the first symptom of an impending reading slump. I also experience this when the book is hella big. You feel me? 


This past week, I have picked up probably seven or eight books and read the first 10-50 pages from them. But, at some point, I would just close the book and decide Nah, not feeling it. It’s really discouraging for me when this happens because I really want to read. It’s not that I don’t want to read. Because I really, really do. But I can’t find anything I’m actually interested in! All these books… I want to read eventually. But for some reason none of them are doing it for me right now! 

To get out of slumps like this, I usually try to find something easy and quick to read. So… I went on the search. Still… Couldn’t find anything. But then a book came in for me at the library! The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes. I had heard good things about this one and had nothing to lose. I started reading it and am now 100 pages in and still reading. So, I’m hoping that my attention stays grasped! 

Have you ever experienced this? How do your reading slumps begin? How do you bust out of them?
