These last 2 weeks I’ve been in a reading slump and it’s so irritating. I’ve started three books and finished none and I have a lot of other books that I want to read. They are from different genres and different media but I just, can’t bring myself to pick any of them up.
I think I need a bit of a break, and I have read over 30 books this year so it’s not like I’m falling behind or anything, I just feel like not reading for now. Which sucks because I love writing reviews for the books I read and telling you all about new ones I’ve acquired.
When I’m like this I find myself turning to really short fanfics to fill the void, since they are around 3,000 words and have simpler plots than whole novels. I already know the characters and it’s more easy to read since the style and format is way different. If you’d like to hear all about fanfiction just drop a comment and I will make a post about that.
No new books any time soon but I will keep writing posts, just don’t expect any updates on my reading until I’m through this slump.
If you have any tips on how to get out of a reading slump take this as an open invitation to comment
That said, I’m going to the International Book Fair in Buenos Aires soon so you will get updates focused on that (look forward to it, it’s gonna be awesome)
I saw Sofii from A Book. A Thought. doing this tag and I love Norse Mythology, it’s just so different from Roman and Greek but still shares a lot of common traits. It walks the fine line between widespread and unknown.
The Shadowhunters of Los Angeles star in the first novel in Cassandra Clare’s newest series, The Dark Artifices, a sequel to the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series. Lady Midnight is a Shadowhunters novel.
It’s been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning, but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses.
Together with her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn’t lead her in treacherous directions…
Making things even more complicated, Julian’s brother Mark—who was captured by the faeries five years ago—has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind—and they need the Shadowhunters’ help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn’t recognize his family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?
Glitz, glamours, and Shadowhunters abound in this heartrending opening to Cassandra Clare’s Dark Artifices series.
