Yay!!! Thanks to Tiffany Snow's Power Play, I am finally out of my reading slump. It was not looking good for a while there. I have been struggling the last couple of months to even be interested enough in the books I'm reading to pick them up. On average, I can usually finish a book in 3 to 4 days depending on how busy I am and my interest level in the book.
The next book I read was Rogue with a Brogue by Suzanne Enoch. I also found this book boring and I have read Enoch before and enjoyed her. It took me about a week to get through this one too. Was it me? Why are all these books falling flat?
I decided that I had to go to one of my tried and true authors to pull me out of this slump, so I went for the latest Kelley Armstrong, Betrayals. Yes! The latest installment of Armstrong's Cainesville novel was great. I read it in a few days. More of Olivia, Gabriel and Ricky and finally Gabriel is realizing his feelings for Olivia!!!
But then I had to read Dirty Blonde by Lisa Scottoline. Ugh!!! This book was terrible. It had major plot problems. Only one person in book club liked it. And just like that bam. My book slump was back.
I made a mistake of trying a new author. I read Hold Your Breath by Katie Ruggle. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. It took me about a week to get through it. I liked the lead characters but the mystery part was ridiculous.
I really don't know if my slump is over, but I sure do hope so!! What do you do in a reading slump and any recommendations for books to keep me out of it?
