I’m finally out of my reading slump!!! Wooooop! Being in a reading slump is one of the worst things when you’re book blogger. I had so many ideas for posts but no motivation to read. And as I watched the days tick by without a new blog post going up, I desperately wanted my reading slump to disappear. Now it has!
My blogging friends (and real life friends – shock horror! Bloggers have real life friends too!), Sarah and Sophie at The Little Contemporary Corner, regularly host read-alongs on their blog. They’re fun to take part in and cool to read what other people think of the same book you’ve just been reading. What I especially like about their read-alongs is that they’re often anthologies of short stories. I think that’s what pulled my out of my reading slump – reading short stories rather than a whole novel!
Sarah and Sophie’s current read-along is A Change is Gonna Come, an anthology of short stories and poems by multiple authors. All of the authors are BAME (Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic) and all of the short stories or poems are written along the theme of change. For my stop on Sarah and Sophie’s read-along blog tour, I’m specifically going to talk about the story Fortune Favours the Bold by Yasmin Rahman.
