The Weekly Recap: THE READING SLUMP IS BACK (Week of 11/13/16)

Happy Sunday! I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by The Caffienated Book Reviewer; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews; and Book Photo Sundays, hosted by Rabbit Ears Book Blog.

-MY LIFE-
This is going to be quick today guys, so stick with me. I'm visiting the Grandparents for Thanksgiving, and I'm super excited. I'm in a reading slump again (BOOOOOOO), so I NEED YOUR HELP! Tell me the best books to get out of a reading slump, or even your favorite book. I'm WAY behind on NaNo, so I'm hoping to get a lot written and read at the Grandparents. I've become a MOD on a Goodreads group! I've been apart of the group for awhile, so I'm really excited! There are some great things in the works, and I'm excited to work on them some more! Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you have a great visit. Reading slumps are no good, hope that passes- I'm not sure if these are your thing but I really liked City of the Lost by Kelley Armstrong recently, and The Woman in Cabin 10 wasn't bad either.

    And congrats on being a mod! Hope you have a super week. :)

  2. Oh, as for what to read while away, it depends on what you love. Get something by an author you love or in a genre you love to help you get back on that horse, or wagon or whatevs!

    And don't feel too bad about NaNo. I was going to do it but haven't even started.

    1. I started off really strong with NaNo, but I've just stopped writing.

  3. For our Thanksgiving, we're planning on just staying home and watching the Macy Day Parade while eating our food! As for a good book you could read, I would probably suggest Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    1. I've heard good things about Neverwhere, so I'll have to check it out! :)

  4. If it's because you look at the stacks of books you've got and think - meh, nothing appeals, I turn to my 'fallback' genres. That's whodunit/police procedures for me and I know my go-to authors. Reading a couple of those will normally give me break from the usual sci fi and fantasy that usually puts sparkles into my life. Hope that helps and have a lovely Thanksgiving, Anna:)

  5. We will be staying home for the holidays and kicking off the festivities on Thanksgiving with some fuch loved family traditions.
    I don't know exactly what sort of book you are feeling like, but I urge you to try jumping out of your comfort zone when are in a slump. That seems to work for me.

  6. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your grandparents! My husband, daughter and I will be having a quiet Thanksgiving, just the three of us this year. We had offers for family visits, but we aren't up for traveling and, frankly, I'm not up for the company right about now. We're saving that for Christmas.

    Congratulations on becoming a moderator for one of the Goodreads groups you belong too. That is great news!

    I hope you are able to break out of your reading slump. Do you know what might be causing it? Reading a favorite author can sometimes help--at least for me. Books that grab my attention and are fast-paced often will help--or something light but engrossing. Anything to get me out of my head and keep me out of it for awhile. Sometimes I just need a break from books all together until I find myself craving a book. I wish I had a better answer. Slumps are hard.

    I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    1. Thank you! I think it's because I attempted NaNo this month, and I still haven't figured out how to manage my time between the two.

  7. Fangirl is such a fun book and will help inspire your NaNoWriMo project as well (a twofer!). Have fun at your Grandparents house and best wishes with your writing.

  8. I love the Chaos Walking series that you have there. That series will definitely get you out of a reading slump! Read the whole series. It's amazing!

  9. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving! For slumps I normally go with my favorite author that I know is going to make me laugh and just enjoy myself. Favorite author for that is Molly Harper if you like paranormal romance with snark they are a lot of fun. Her contemporary is fun too if your not into PNR. Hope you get out of your reading slump soon!

  10. I have been finding short story anthologies slump fixing. I am not quite in a slump right now, but I have been reading really slow for some reason. It's wonderful that you get to go to your grandparents! My son and I have Thanksgiving with just the two of us. There is always too much drama at my mother's house and my son doesn't like the way so many people get drunk at his dad's, so we are happy that way. Friends usually stop in afterwards for pie, so that is always nice. Have a wonderful ho!iday and I hope you get some writing done. :)

  11. I tend to go back to old favorites when I am in a book slump. For example, the audio version of Lady Midnight is hands down my favorite. I find that even listening to a few chapters helps me pull out of my book slump.
    Hope you find a book you love soon!
