Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

August 21: Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump

This week’s list might be difficult, or at least I’m having trouble figuring out how I want to approach it.  Books that pull me out of a reading slump might or probably won’t pull you out of one because the chances are we have different reading tastes.  I’m going to pursue my read list and see what I can come up with.  Generally, my advice for a reading slump is this; Reread something you loved in the past, try something completely different from what you tend to read,  read a non-fiction title, or take a break from reading altogether and do something else.  Those are best tips I have for getting over a reading slump.

Ten books that might help with a reading slump…

  1. Genesis Sometimes you simply need something short to get you back in the reading mood or life gets too busy.  This is a dystopian book under 200 pages that you could easily read in an afternoon.
  2. Mr G: A Novel About The Creation Another quick read right around 200 pages that will keep your interest if you don’t mind questioning who God is and what it might have been like for him to create the universe.
  3. The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers, #1) Sticking to the universe why not follow a rag-tag crew of misfits as they build, essentially, a space highway to a small angry planet.  This is a great pick for sci-fi fans.
  4. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, #1)  Sometimes you just need dry British humor and a outragous plot.  This book fits the bill, again, for sci-fi fans looking to get their reading groove back on.
  5. Redshirts Another pick for those sci-fi fans.  This book is also a great pick for all you Trekkies out there.  Kind of a plot within a plot here that is told in three parts.  I’m not sure how else to sell it to you except for it was a lot of fun.
  6. A Quick Bite (Argeneau #1) Not into sci-fi and looking for a great beach read that isn’t to heavy.  If you are a paranormal fan like me I suggest the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands.  They are a hoot.
  7. The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires (Half-Moon Hollow, #1) Another great paranormal beach read.  This one checks off the funny, sexy, and great friendships boxes for sure.
  8. Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1) Looking for a little less fluff and a bit more action than I would give this one a try.
  9. Moon Called (Mercy Thompson, #1) The next two books are rereads that I recently read that helped me break an audiobook slump I was having.
  10. First Grave on the Right (Charley Davidson, #1) This book is an excellent choice to break a reading slump.  It covers all the emotions and will leave you clamoring for more!

Alright,  sorry if the list feels a little disjointed I was distracted/called away a couple of times while working on the post.  What books have helped you get over a reading slump?  Leave them in the comments.
