We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since last January Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is book to pull you out of a reading slump. Now this is pretty funny timing, I had never really felt like I was in a reading slump before but currently I seem to be! Since I’ve never have had to pull myself out of slump I’m not 100% this will work but I feel like these are books that will be helpful. Let’s take a look at those books!
1. Harry Potter – J.K. Rowling
I think reading an old favorite is something that can really help you get out of a slump. Harry Potter is one of my favorite things ever and I’m always in the mood to read or to listen to these books. They might help to get back into the habit of reading.
2. Nevermoor – Jessica Townsend
I’m kinda embarrassed to admit I haven’t read this one yet, even though I’m super excited to pick it up. Everyone seems to be absolutely loving this Middle Grade fantasy. I think reading a MG novel is another way to pull you out of a reading slump, they’re usually pretty quick paced and a lot of fun!
3. Queens of Geek – Jen Wilde
In general I think contemporary novels are great for getting you going again. I usually read them pretty quickly and you don’t have to discover a difficult fantasy world. Queens of Geek is still on my TBR unfortunately but I’m positive I will enjoy it.
4. The Summer I Became a Nerd – Leah Rae Miller
It’s been a while since I read this one but I still had to include it. I absolutely loved this super cute, super fluffy contemporary novel. It’s got nerds, it’s got romance, it’s got a great message, and it’s got a shitload of cuteness <3
5. Snow like Ashes – Sara Raasch
While this is a fantasy, I do think that this is a super quick read. The world is super interesting but not complicated at all, and neither is the story. I really enjoyed this first book in the trilogy and plan on picking up the other 2 soon.
6. The Valiant – Lesley Livingston
This was another unexpected quick read and one I really enjoyed! I read this one in Dutch and have the sequel waiting for me to pick it up asap. The Valiant is historical fiction and that is usually not something I read super fast but this one just pulled me in.
7. I Hate Fairyland – Skottie Young
I adore I Hate Fairyland, one of the most fun graphic novels I have ever read! This is a series I would highly recommend and I cannot wait until we get #4. Such a quick and entertaining read. I read graphic novels/comics super fast and I love to add a book as finished on Goodreads. Definitely helps me to get back in to reading.
8. Ms Marvel – G. Willow Wilson
Another comic I really like and flew through is Ms Marvel. I hadn’t heard of Ms Marvel until not too long ago and I’m so happy I picked it up. This one made the list because of the same reasons as I Hate Fairyland haha. I seemed to only be able to really commit to comics/manga lately and this is just a recommendation from me haha.
9. Road to Riverdale – Mark Waid
As you might know, I’m a big fan of Riverdale. So when I realized it was based on comics I went shopping asap and got this comic. It has the first issue of a bunch of comics that are part of this world. Riverdale is super addictive so reading the comics was a lot of fun too. There are some differences between the show and the comic but that just keeps it interesting.
10. Gangsta – Kohske
And last but certainly not least, the manga Gangsta! I bought the first volume when I was in the USA and after I finished that one I immediately went to pick up the next one. This manga is a bit more complicated than the comics on this list but it’s still a super quick read!
So these are 10 books that I think will help you get out of a reading slump! What do you think of my choices? Let me know in the comments!
