Searching for my reading Mojo ….

Posted in Tuesday Talk / 2 Comments

I haven’t reviewed in weeks.

It isn’t that I haven’t been reading (boy have I been reading….) but I can’t seem to get out of my re-read cycle! In the last two weeks I’ve reread Cat and Bones (One of my all time favourite UF series), some of the Penny Reid Dating in the City (not all. I really don’t like a few) and I’m on to the O’Kane series by Kit Rocha (I may be here a while guys because….

 

So what did it? What killed the best reading streak I’ve been on in years? It was a book. Not a bad book, just a meh book.

The issue with following so many book bloggers on twitter is that you get caught up in the excitement. When you read tweet after tweet about a book and how much others love it, you get VERY excited to read it too and share the love.

I went into said book thinking ….

 

I came out thinking …

 

I just didn’t love it. It wasn’t a bad book, it was just a Meh book. Other people absolutely love it so it must be me right?

I tried the next in the series but that was even more meh.

Now I’m struggling to start new books. The disappointment of falling from such a high left a sour taste and reading is so precious to me that I have to protect it.

I know this feeling will fade but, for now, I’m going to keep cycling through my favourite series. There will be reviews…don’t worry!
