Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme is:
August 21: Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump
If I’m ever in a reading slump, I tend to go for fast-paced, action-heavy books, to jettison me right out of it. These are a few of my top picks for slaying that reading slump.
Sense a pattern here? Yeah, me too. Most of these are YA fantasy novels with feminist undertones (or overtones), because these are the type of books that get me back into reading when I need a boost. They’re the type of books I pick up and can’t put dow. Sure, I Am Thunder is YA contemporary, Invictus is a YA sci-fi and Vicious is more of a supernatural thriller (also uncategorisable in its brilliance), but each of these held me captivated the entire time and are definitely books I’d pick up if I needed to ditch a slump.
Do you ever find yourself in a slump? What sort of books do you go to when you need to get out of one?
