Conversationally others have commented on slumps being caused by book boredom. Not being able to find the right reading materials, reading too much (I’m not convinced by this on either!) and feeling intimidating by that ever-growing tbr and thus ignoring it entirely. The pressures of social media: reading the right books, posting the right pictures, writing the right reviews, also popped up frequently as a cause. The pressure to constantly post, whether to satisfy the algorithm or to remain relentlessly relevant and engaged, is an exhausting and unending cycle.
