The only idea I've had is to read children's authors, such as Blyton and some classic children's authors, in the hope that the plot orientated easy-reads will somehow help. I loved Blyton's "Mystery" series as a child - these were the first books I read independently, and loved. Currently plodding through "The Mystery of the Spiteful Letters" but can only read a couple of chapters at a sitting.
I'm endlessly watching youtube book vids, but not reading books!
Any ideas would be gratefully received.
Has anyone else ever had this problem? How have you dealt with it?
I hope I've put this in the right part of the forum.
I don't think it's really a slump but just hitting a string of bad books in a row. This happens to me all the time. I agree with the idea of rereading something you liked before.
If you care to say what your preferred genres and favorite authors are, maybe we can recommend something. You just need to find a new book to get excited about.
