Hey guys! Lately I've been in a bit of a reading slump. No matter what book I picked up, I still couldn't concentrate and read it. I really wanted to read a darn book but just couldn't. Luckily.. I'm getting out of the slump and getting back to reading tons! In this post i'll give you some tips to get out of a reading slump. Here we goooo:
When you're in a reading slump, one way to get out of the slump is by choosing a book you're sure you'll like, or maybe choosing a book you've already read and loved! That'll help by getting your head back into book reading. For me, I would re-read The Fault In Our Stars by John Green which you should definitely check out!
Maybe you have a busy schedule, maybe school work is driving you insane and taking away your time. Finding the right time to read will definitely help out. For me it's at night, also whenever I have a free period like a study hall. So check your schedule, I'm pretty sure you'll find some time to read!
If you choose to read something short it'll be easier to finish it quickly and move on to the next book. You'll be like "oh maaan, dis book is short i'm gon read it quickly" and you read it and ta-da! All finished and you're back to reading. 
Trying a different genre can be fun! Read something different that you normally wouldn't read. You never know, you might enjoy it!
Do you normally read from a physical copy of the book? How about read that book on an e-reader, kindle, phone, etc. I wasn't so fond of reading on my phone till I actually started to do so, and I found that I get through books quicker when I read on my phone. Maybe you could even listen to the book! I've never tried that, but I will someday!
Set up a date to read that book that has been on your list forever! Maybe set the date to read with a friend. You can also set marks of where you want to stop reading and how much you want to read today (Which I do but sometimes the book is so good I end up reading more)

I hope you guys enjoyed that post and maybe you found it helpful! Have a wonderful day (:
