Books to get back into reading?
I tend to burn out from reading pretty easily, whether it's because I've been doing it too much, because I started something way too long and the dauntingness surpasses the excitement once that starts fading off, or because I force myself to keep reading something that's not too enthralling.
I'd love to hear your experiences with these burnouts, how you've been able to get our of them, and whether you had any book recs of something short and gripping that might get me back into the habit. I tend to prefer SciFi/Fantasy, but I'll take any recommendations if they're applicable.
@Mariano I tend to switch to short stories/fanfictions when novels become too daunting. Don't get down on yourself if you don't finish things, there is so much to read and sometimes when you start something it doesn't play out like you hoped. I remember once pulling myself through two books in a series because I loved the first book and couldn't bring myself to admit that it had gone to shit. In hindsight I should have thanked the first book for the experience and moved on. Life is too short to read bad books.
@mianngu I'm definitely with you on that one, I switch to fanfic immediately, but the hop back to novels always feels impossible I can for sure relate to sticking with bad books, but my worst weakness is books that I know are good, and everybody loves, but my brain and eyes will not keep reading (or worse with a series that "gets really good on book 3" )
