This week the topic for T5W is Books to Get You Out of a Reading Slump.
Reading slumps are the absolute worst and sometimes a really good way to get back on track is to read something you know you’ll really love.
For me those books are usually contemporaries or different YA books that are really fast paced and not too long. There are a few exceptions of course and I’ve tried to represent all of the different kinds of book I would read in a slump.
1. ”Rehepapp” by Andrus Kivirähk
This is my favourite Estonian book and it’s the kind of book that will always pull me out of a slump. It is funny and interesting, really fast paced and just a really good book to read while snuggled up in bed.
2. ”The Deal” by Elle Kennedy
Books like this are always good for when one is in a slump. It was a fast read, funny and a little bit over the edge, but it was enjoyable. NA books are often really vulgar, so it definitely takes a bit to get used to them.
3. ”Gemina” by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING!!!! I feel like if I were in a slump then this book would pull me right out and make me want to read 24/7 again. There is nothing better than Nik and space.
4. ”Kill the Boy Band” by Goldy Moldavsky
Funny and funny and…funny. This was right up my alley with the dark humour and (bordering on psychopathic) girls. This shows the reader the dark side of fangirls and I think this is another one of those easy and fun reads that is good for when a reader is in a slump.
5. ”Maybe Someday” by Colleen Hoover
CoHo books are always good for reading slumps. Always. Her writing and characters are really gripping and it is so hard to put the book down. Before you know it the book is finished and you want to read more. This story is one of my favourites, because this is one of her happier novels…it is not happy happy, but it does not leave a person traumatized.
