Musing Mondays is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. This weeks Musing Mondays asks: Describe the last time you were stumped for something to read, and you took measures to remedy that — either by going to the bookstore, the library, or shopping elsewhere. What book did you choose? Did it get you out of your slump?
Ah, reading slumps. My main nemises. I go through one at least once every year, and their usually my darkest times since I thrive off of the written world, much like food and water. To get me out of a slump I usually need a specific kind of book, sometimes even one I would never think I would like. For instance I just got out of one recently, about a month ago thanks to Catcher in the Rye. I was at my Aunt's house over the weekend, and she believes all books should at least have one vampire or werewolf in them. I wasn't in the mood for fantasy though. I did see she had several classics though, one being Catcher in the Rye, a book highly praised by a dear friend of mine. I picked it up on a whim, and was so fascinated by Holden's bipolar thought process I went through half of it. Of course I still haven't finished it, it kinda depressed me a little you know, even though it did refuel my desire to read. :P
