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…
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Another great paranormal beach read. This one checks off the funny, sexy, and great friendships boxes for sure.
- Looking for a little less fluff and a bit more action than I would give this one a try.
- The next two books are rereads that I recently read that helped me break an audiobook slump I was having.
- This book is an excellent choice to break a reading slump. It covers all the emotions and will leave you clamoring for more!
