I have a few different tricks that helped me get out of them and I hope they help you get out of yours
Tip 1. Samples. Weird I know. There is so many books out there and I have so little money. You see bloggers and booktubers rave about a book all the time, you being you need said book, though there's a small part of you thinks you may not like it because it's not what you usually read. I was the same way and I'm willingly to admit I was disappointed in most of the books they recommended that I bought without thinking or reading a sample of it.
So, what you should do is load up your Kindle or Nook with samples of books that you are indifferent about and when you get into a slump you read one or a few. That usually works for me, especially a good one. Downside. You don't have money for said book that you wanted more of. Hey, it's okay, at least you're out of your slump, but now your on a sample hangover. It'll be okay, when you get paid you can purchase said book.
Tips 2. Read some fanfiction. Don't want to read samples? Alright, go read some fanfiction. It can be a one shot, a story, or a few drabbles. Who doesn't love fanfiction? There's nothing more exciting than getting an email saying a new chapter of your favorite fic is now up. Okay, better than that is getting an email saying your items had been shipped, but it's up there. Downside. You find a fic that you love, but it hasn't been updated in a while and you don't know if the author is going to update or not.
I just got back into fanfiction, so I can't recommend any to you at this time. The one I was going to recommend hasn't been updated in a while. It's a Twilight/Harry Potter crossover and before you turn your nose up at it, here me out. It was so deliciously good. 10,000-14,000 words per chapter, really detailed. It was so juicy. It's everything and next year I'm going to re-read it again. If you want to check it out here's the link. It's called, Fate is such a bwitch by waterflower20.
Tip 3. Re-Read. Re-reading your favorite book helps a lot. Yes you know what's going to happen, but don't you want to get back into your favorite world and see your favorite character? So go through your ebooks or your bookshelf and pick up your favorite book and get reading.
Tip 4. Read from a different genre. Sometimes a way to get out of a slump is to read from a different genre that you usually don't reach for. You don't have to go and buy some, you can get some for free on kindle. it doesn't have to be a long one, sometimes you just need a novel or a short story to get you out.
And the most important one.
Tip 5. Take a break. Not what you expected huh? Sometimes we just need to take a break from reading. I mean an actual break; don't force yourself to read. Remember it's a hobby. If you're a blogger, tell the author that it may take some time to post your review, but you will post it. How can you properly review a book if you're in not in the mood to read? You can't, hopefully the author can understand.
Relax, watch some t.v., binge watch some of your favorite YouTubers videos. Soon enough you will be reading all the books.
Those are all my tips on how to overcome a reading slump. I hope this will help you get of yours. If you have any tips that help you get out of a slump let me know in the comments. I would love to add some tricks to my arsenal.
Have a very happy thanksgiving and a great day if you're not in the United States.
