I’m in a bit of a slump right now. I have a problem where none of the books in my TBR pile sound good. Obviously they sounded good to me at one point, otherwise they wouldn’t be in my TBR. But right now, I just don’t feel like reading them.
As a result of this slump, I’ve looked at rereading a few books I’ve already read. I started out with rereading Harry Potter, which is something that I do often. But shortly after finishing I realized that I don’t reread any other books/series. Harry Potter is one of my comfort reads and I’m guaranteed to love it. I know that. But I used to reread other books all the time (this is like 6+ years ago). However, the idea of doing that now kind of scares me.
What if I no longer like the books I once loved?
I know that as I’ve read more books I’ve become a more critical reader. I have higher expectations and my tastes have grown and changed over time. So what if I read a book that I LOVED six years ago… and I hate it? That would crush me!! I’d almost rather not take the risk and stick with my fond memories.
