I'm sure you know the feeling of being super excited for a book. A book you can't wait to read, a book you preordered weeks (could be months) ago, a book you put into your TBR pile with a smile on your lips. And when you finally get around to start reading the book, there's nothing! No excitement, no anticipation, no book lust. That's exactly what happened to me yesterday.
I grabbed a book from my TBR pile that a few weeks ago I was super excited to read. But as soon as I had the book in my hands I knew that something was wrong. And I wonder where my excitement for reading this book has gone. I nearly looked under my bed to see if the excitement was hiding there. ;) My excitement for reading this book is like a cloud which, for now, has rolled by.
In times like this I have to remind myself that not every book is perfect for every mood, for every situation in life. I have to remind myself to stay patient, because I'm sure that in a few weeks or months I will once again be excited to read the book.
My solution to this situation was to put the book back in my TBR shelf and to start reading another book instead. A book from a different genre, a book that I'm enjoying a lot so far (50% off murder by Josie Belle). My solution is to wait until my book lust for this one book will be back. I cases like this I can be patient, because I know that it will be worth it.
Do you also sometimes lose your excitement for reading a book? What are your solutions to this situation?
