Book blogging: help getting over the reviewing slump?

09:23


Hello all! 

I hope you've all been doing really well. I've been on holidays for the past week. I had a wedding to go to in Turkey. I had a wonderful week, the weather was just bliss.


Before my holiday I had my diagnosis of inflammatory arthritis confirmed. I had an idea of what was going on. I have had joint pain for the past 2 years but consultants were reluctant to put a label on me until they saw visible swelling. Recently my fingers and ankles have started swelling very badly so that seemed to be enough for them.


Inflammatory arthritis is an autoimmune condition where your immune system over reacts and attacks the body's joints and organ linings. This means I will have to take chemotherapy drugs for the rest of my life. It wouldn't be as high a dose as a cancer patient would take but there are still some nasty side effects.



Anyway, I'm rambling now. The reason for this post is that since the diagnosis I've been in a real reviewing slump. I'm still reading, I read 3 books while on holidays but I seem to have lost interest in reviewing books. I'm even having a hard time trying to write about books that I've really loved.


I used to be so organised. I would keep notes while I read a book so I could refer to them while writing my review but now I'm finding it hard to even do that. At the minute I have 6 books on my "to be reviewed" shelf on Goodreads. I really hate feeling like this as reviewing used to be such a passion for me.


I would love to know if anyone else has been through this? If so how did you pull yourself out of it. I'd love to hear some tips.
