This thread is where you can chat about all things PIFM, ask questions and once books have been read, review your selected reads. A complete free for all.

PLEASE NOTE:

PIFM is meant to be FUN and not to be taken seriously. I would appreciate it if all participants just chilled and not get worked up about voting, who votes, who doesn't, etc. Please bear in mind that some will just want to vote, many don't come on everyday and most of us have time constraints. I just want a relaxed approach to it all and for you all to just enjoy the process! I'd really appreciate your courtesy in this matter. Many thanks.

Dana (dkmckelvey) | 541 comments Hey everyone, I haven't been much in a reading mood lately but still enjoy watching everyone else's PIFM. Question: what is your favorite go-to/feel good book when you are in a slump? Nothing to long or heavy. I need some ideas!

Reading slumps are sometimes hard to conquer. I agree with all the choices people have put out there.
Evanovich and JD Robb “in death” series are two of my go to series that keep me in the mystery department but on a lighter, faster paced reading scale.

The other thing I do is skip to a completely different genre a,together. Push out of my comfort zone and grab something that I’ve seen on tv or from the history shelf or the old stand by Mr Stephen King,

Let me know what you pick


message 8: by Dana (new)

Dana (dkmckelvey) | 541 comments That's what I was thinking, something light and fluffy would be nice. But I think I am getting the newest Will Trent from the library this week so hopefully that does the trick!


message 9: by Kirsten (new)

Kirsten  (kmcripn) | 7982 comments Another choice would be the Lady Georgie series by Rhys Bowen. Great if you want light. If you want LOL funny, try Lisa Lutz's hilarious Spellman Files series.

If I find myself in a slump I tend to get a bit of fluff from Kindle Unlimited or the library. I don't like to stick to one genre for too long so if I've read a few heavy going thrillers or something I'll switch to a couple of light romances, comedies or even an old children's classic, it's like pushing a 'reset' button lol

Tonya (tonyasmith) | 866 comments @ Perri, Im okay with it if I know what book so I check at the library to see if we have it.👻😲

I have a suggest for a buddy read but its not a scary read like we should do, the name of it is Dragonfly by Leila Meacham. Let me know what you think or suggest. Everyone is to join in if they would like.

message 38: by Perri (new)

Perri Oooh, I'm excited-it looks like The Cabin would be up first to give Tonya a chance to read The 100th Man and more people are interested in that book
What about a tentative starting date of a week from today the 25th? We actually don't all have to read at the same time, although it makes it a bit more fun
