I'm beginning to worry that my annoyances at books lately are more to do with me than with the book itself. Nearly every book I pick up has something that just aggravates me.
Don't get me wrong, the books obviously have issues and enough to irritate, but is my own mood making things worse? Am I being too nit-picky? Or am I just reading that many more mediocre to bad books?
I feel like I'm wallowing in the worst reading slump I've had in a long time. Nothing new is really wowing me. Everything's either just okay or much, much worse.
I've re-read favorites and enjoyed them immensely in the middle of all this crap. Maybe I should try a new book by a favorite author as a litmus test.
