Top Ten Tuesday (#5): Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump

For those of you who haven’t heard about this one yet, check out where it originally came from at: The Broke and Bookish and then where it moved to at That Artsy Reader Girl if you’d like to participate in the future!

Okay, I actually kind of LOVE this topic. There are so many books that I personally use in order to get myself out of reading slumps, but I’m excited to see what books other people use in order to do the same thing!

So, let’s get this show on the road!


1-3. Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door, and Isla and the Happily Ever After by Anna Perkins

I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve read each of these in order to get myself out of a reading slump. I just adore the characters and I love the progression of each story and relationship.


4. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Ughh I love these ones so much. The humor in all of these never fails to get me out of a slump, especially with them being fairy tale retellings and having that lovely aspect of also being sci-fi related.


5+6. Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

Once again, I love visiting the characters in these books so damn much! The humor and the story lines just make me so happy every time I read them.


7. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

Because, I mean, how fucking amazing are thee books? I could read them any time I’m in a slump and just re-immerse myself in the world and the magic.


8. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

I’ve read this book probably ten times at least and I just adore it each and every time. I love Charlie and I love his way of speaking to the reader.


9. The Firebird Chronicles by Claudia Gray

Because these books are just so. freaking. good. I love the characters and the concept and I love visiting all the worlds within these books.


10. Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Because OH MY GOSH. These books are so damn good and I just absolutely CANNOT wait for the next book to come out. But the first was so good and I read it the first time in the middle of a HARD slump and it worked perfectly.

Any books you use to get out of slumps on this list? 🙂
