Plunging in to the second book of the ACOTAR series. This is a re-read, but I‘m still really excited to delve into it!

This has been the worst reading year for me in a long time. I‘ve been so depressed that my normal reading habits are in shambles. I haven‘t actually completed a book since the beginning of the year. I‘m bed-bound today with some chronic illness related problems, and I‘m hoping to finally get some reading done by switching back from ebook to physical books.

BookBelle84 That's a good one to start with! 2y
Book-Raptor @BookBelle84 I‘ve read through it before and enjoyed it, so I figured I‘d give it another go before reading the second book! I‘ve been starting band not finishing books left and right this year, though :( 2y

Book-Raptor @Andrew65 thank you ❤️ I‘ve struggled with mental illness for the vast majority of my life, and things have just been getting worse this year. 2y
Andrew65 @Book-Raptor So much anxiety around this year that I think most people have struggled, me included. (edited) 2y
thereadinglux OMG I thought it was just me. Even though I've been indoors, I can't seem to get out of a major reading slump. Its been my worse reading year as well. Honestly I've read probably 9 books so far and I've never read so little. I feel so disappointed in myself. I've found a reading challenge online and I am going to see if I can reignite something. Best wishes to you. I hope things change for the better 🙏 2y
Book-Raptor @thepinkpumpkin oh gosh! ☹️😱 Good luck with the reading challenge! I STILL have not finished this book 😵 I just haven‘t been able to read! 2y

Finally charged my kindle up! I haven‘t really been reading much (at all?). Every time I start a book, I end up DNFing it 😭 Hopefully this time will be different? Depression induced reading slumps are the worst.

(Not my image!)
I went searching for “Shatter Me” on BookSloth, and it isn‘t there. Of course it isn‘t! This new app keeps getting rave reviews, and I‘m not sure how, considering it is incomplete and unstable. I might try to use it again in the future, but it‘s really not THAT great. Just more aesthetically appealing.

jessjess I've never even heard of it, gonna go look it up right now. 2y

I‘ve tried reading this book once before, but had to DNF is for some (forgotten) reason. So far, the writing style really makes me want to take up writing poetry again (I haven‘t written any since middle school).

LilMrmd79 A teaser tail is my dog‘s absolute favorite toy by far. 2y
Book-Raptor @LilMrmd79 this type of toy is their favorite (and ours!). It‘s so much fun to use! 2y
DebbieGrillo Follow your urge to write poetry! It is human to create. 2y

I made Futurama (Fry and Leela) bookmarks out of perler beads and paper clips yesterday! Leela marks my current page, the heart marks my reading session goal, and fry marks my daily reading goal!

After DNFing this on my Kindle, I‘ve decided to give this book another try, via print version! I‘m still trying to solve the great debate over which 📖 style is easier for me to read; physical or digital. I have severe ADHD, and it makes reading for pleasure very difficult.

Koffeejazzandbooks I‘ve had this same issue of trying to figure out if the kindle or physical books are better for me, it feels like if I read several books on my kindle my concentration goes completely flat so recently I‘ve been alternating a lot which as been pretty helpful. 2y
Book-Raptor @Koffeejazzandbooks Glad to know that I‘m not alone 🥰 I‘ve been reading so very little this year 😳😱 I‘m debating switching back to physical books, despite my spouses protesting ;) My past two reading-sprints have shown that I read faster with a physical book! 2y
Koffeejazzandbooks @Book-Raptor kindles books are way cheaper and they don‘t take up so much space. I read from a kindle tablet for a long time before I started having issues with concentrating so I switched to an ereader, but even with that I‘m not as absorbed in it like a physical book. 2y
Book-Raptor @Koffeejazzandbooks Me too! I I‘ve compared BookOutlet and ThriftBook prices to kindle, and you “save” a bit...before they hit you with the shipping and handling 😂 But I‘ve gotten to the point with my ADHD that I just can‘t handle a ebook anymore. It‘s so hard to read more than two or three pages 😳 I just can‘t stay focused or engrossed in the story! 2y

This is the first book I‘ve finished in a very long time. Months. Mental illnesses have this disgusting side effect where they strip away your passions, interests, hobbies. I‘m slowly starting to feel better, and I‘m so proud of myself right now.

Yep. I‘m still on this book. I haven‘t been reading AT ALL. Yeesh. Today is going to be a quiet day, though. Babe is home from work today, in a all-day zoom meeting. So I‘m going to curl up and read most of the day, until he‘s finished!

There are 0 decent tips for how to read when you have severe ADHD. I haven‘t picked up my book in what feels like weeks. I‘m just not interested in reading, but at the same time I really want to? Help me please, I miss being a devourer of books
:(

phantomx Hmm, maybe writing in a reading log/journal about what you read. It could have a section for drawing your favorite scene, another section for questions, comments and reactions, a summary section, and some other sections to keep you engaged with the story. You could also try audiobooks, or reading the story aloud to yourself using certain tones and voices. I hope this helps. 3y

I‘m going to make a attempt to finish this book before May 1st! 😒 I‘m a very slow reader, and it has been a good while since I‘ve read in abundance. I‘m hoping to get back in to reading after being so slumps the past few months!

I haven‘t quite got the hang of how Litsy images work...😅 I‘ll eventually figure it out!
As you can see, I am not a fast reader. 31 minutes = 26 pages.
