It’s funny that I just posted a discussion about getting out of a reading slump, because this week’s topic is all about books to get you out of a reading slump (aka un-slumpify!). All of the titles link to the book’s Goodread page.
Winter is a hard season for a lot of people and many of us are slumpy. Let’s talk about some books that are great for getting you out of a slump!
The Selection by Kiera Cass- By no means is this the best book/series in the world. It’s basically the bachelor in book form, with a little bit of dystopian thrown in for fun. HOWEVER, if you’re in a slumpy mood, sometimes a trashy chick flick in book form is just what you need to spark the reading bug.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo- This book is a beauty. It is a gift to us mere mortals from the god of writing, miss Bardugo. Seriously though, if you haven’t read Six of Crows, you NEED to. Yes, it is a high fantasy which I know can be difficult to get into if you’re in a slump, but the characters will charm you so much.
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan- This is my go to “I have nothing to read” book that always gets me in a reading mood. It has snark, sass, blue food, Greek mythology, and Percy Jackson in it. What more could you want?
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak- I don’t know about you all, but if I’m feeling slumpy, I’m usually not feeling too great myself. For some reason, reading a book that reflects my mood always helps me get back into reading. The Book Thief is dark, gritty, heart wrenching, and absolutely wonderful. Sometimes everyone needs a good cry (yeah, you’ll probably cry reading this).
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling- If all else fails, there’s always Harry Potter. #newlifemoto
