Reader’s Block

I read A LOT, more than is probably healthy so it’s particularly painful when I hit a rough patch on my reading list. These are the books I’ve picked up the past month and have had to put down because I just couldn’t get into them. This by no means indicates these stories are bad, a couple of these are re-reads so I know I liked them before. I think my problem is I already know what happens. I’ve read enough of most genres to figure out the story arch within the first few chapters. I’m looking to pick up something that will surprise me. I want to get lost in a story, no no not just lost but consumed. I want to go on a literary roller-coaster. Suggestions are greatly appreciated, help me get out of the slump.

  1. hi karen– awesome blog. I am also in a reader’s block. I have reverted to re reading the harry potter books 🙂 but after reading the first chapter of “reading lolita in tehran” i was thinking that I would read all the classics listed in the book. wish me luck!
