What to do when you’re in a reading slump

I’m currently in a huge reading slump… So far I’ve only read three books in January, which is low compared to my last year’s numbers. I’ve been in reading slumps before, one lasted for two years. When I started university, I only read thirteen books that year, then twenty-six the next year. (Which are enough if you want them to be enough, but in my case, those are a really small amount of books.) After successfully defeating the beast that is the slump, I started reading a lot again, and it was so nice. I occasionally had minor slumps but nothing that monumental. But now I feel like something wicked this way came because I haven’t felt like reading in a while. None of my books sparks joy to be totally honest, and it sucks! I want to be hyped about reading again. So, now I’m going to translate an old Hungarian post of mine, which I wrote in 2018 when I had a reading slump. I jotted down a few tips to overcome this nightmare every bookworm can relate to. Hopefully, some of them will help you too!

2020 statistics

You probably don’t know this about me (yet), but I am obsessed with stats! I am keen on reading other people’s stats and making mine too! One of my favourite end of the year traditions is to open Excel and make pie charts out of my reading stats. So, grab a hot beverage because this is going to be quite a long post!

December wrap-up // In which my life revolved around evermore & BTS

I feel like December slipped away so quickly, I couldn’t really enjoy the holidays because… well, I wasn’t really in the mood for celebrating. At least I managed to read a decent amount of books to finish off 2020 strongly!

My most anticipated 2021 releases

Today I’m going to share twenty-one of my most anticipated 2021 releases as part of the Bookending Winter event! I’m really excited for all of these books, but I decided not to write why I am looking forward to them, I’ll just show you the synopsis because I don’t want to get repetitive. Some are debut novels, some are from authors I’ve read from and a few of them are part of a series. Obviously, publication dates can change, but these are the expected publication dates as of today.
