Reading Slump

I think it's finally time to admit... I'm in a bit of a reading slump.

In case you haven't noticed, my blogging has been pretty sparse lately. I've been blaming it on being stressed and busy (trips and moves), but I think it's about time that I just come out and say that I'm slumped.

I'm so bummed that I have hit a reading slump, as the summer is usually my favorite time of year for reading. I usually inhale summer YA's like it's my job. Unfortunately, this year I just can't seem to get in the swing of it. I read a book and instead of flying through it in a matter of a day or two while lounging at the pool, it takes me a week or more. I find myself gravitating towards Netflix more than a book and I'm a little annoyed at myself because of it.

I don't know if it's that I've just been picking bad books or if it is a combination of being stressed that is making reading less enjoyable. I'm hoping that by finally admitting that I'm slumped, I can move past it. 

I've also been slacking on my two reading challenges. I'm 5 books behind on my Goodreads challenge and I've been meaning to do an update on the Uppercase Reading Challenge, but I haven't actually made any progress on that one since the last update.

But, instead of allowing myself to continue to be ashamed of my lack of reading and blogging, I am going to shout it out now. I am in a reading slump and that's ok!! I will get out of it. I will put down books that don't spark me! And, I will hopefully have a few non-book related (beauty and buy related) blog posts for you all next week :)
