Now going back to the reading slump I’m in at the moment. I realized that rereading books that I enjoyed when I was younger really helps me get back into reading. Every time a semester got a little busy this past school year I fell into a reading slump. Once I get more time it’s rather hard for me to get myself back into reading. When I started rereading the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead back in September I could really feel how I found an old love for that series again. I read that series around the same time I read the Hollows series by Kim Harrison for the first time.
So maybe next time I find it hard to get out of a reading slump I guess I’ll pick up another favorite from back then: the Darkest Powers trilogy by Kelley Armstrong.
Another thing that helped me before is reading a new book from a series you really love (or an author you always enjoy). For me it often helps when a favorite author (to me that’s Rachel Morgan most of the time) comes out with a new book, especially when it’s a continuation to a series you love to death *cough* Creepy Hollow *cough*.
Happy reading, a lovely summer and much love,
