Top Ten Tuesday: Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week's topic is:
Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump

Trying to get back onto a semi-regular blogging schedule by jumping back into Top Ten Tuesday! This week's topic is very fitting because I feel like I've been battling a huge reading slump all year. :/ Maybe if I reread one of these books/series, I'll finally snap out of it!

1. Persuasion by Jane Austen

My favorite book ever. ♥

2. Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding

This is my go-to book whenever I need a really, really good laugh.

3. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

4. The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare

5. Hamlet by William Shakespeare

Because when I think, "reading slump" I also think, "melancholy Danish prince" lol. Seriously, though, I love Shakespeare, and this is my all-time favorite play.

6. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

I've read this a couple of times, and the slow-burn romance still makes me swoooon.

7. The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

8. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

I recently read Restore Me, the 4th book in the series, and it was the fastest I've read a book all year.

9. Vicious by V.E. Schwab

Another page-turner. Can I have the sequel, Vengeful, already?!

10. Avatar: The Last Airbender graphic novels

Written by Gene Luen Yang and featuring stunning art by Gurihiru, the AtLA graphic novels are the next best thing to having new episodes of the TV series.

What books do you recommend for breaking out of a reading slump?


  1. I've been slumping on and off too! The Shatter Me series definitely looks good to me- I've been wanting to try those for a while- and Bridget Jones Diary! Never read the book but thought the movie was super cute!

    1. I was kind of late to the Shatter Me series, but once I read the first book, I couldn't believe that I hadn't read it sooner! I love the Bridget Jones movies; still have to see the most recent one, though.

  2. Persuasion! Interesting. Don't tell my book club members that. It's our read for this month, and our group hasn't been very enthusiastic....though I, myself, am turning out to be a Jane Austen fan....

    1. I hope you end up enjoying Persuasion! It gets better and better, and the ending is my favorite out of Jane Austen's novels. :D

  3. I love The Raven Cycle! I haven't read Vicious yet, but it's my next read and I'm super excited for it.

    1. The Raven Cycle is one of my all-time favorite series. Vicious is fantastic- hope you love it, too!

  4. Great choices, Persuasion got me out of a very bad slump at one point this year :)

    1. That's awesome! It's definitely a story that I never get tired of reading.

  5. Great choices! Harry Potter is easily one of my top picks for this topic. I started reading Poison Study once but never finished and I'm not sure why? Definitely need to pick it up again. Nice list!

    1. I totally recommend giving Poison Study another try! It's a great series. :D

  6. I like that you included a few older books. (And a bunch of awesome current books.) I hope your slump ends soon!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. I do have a special place in my heart for a couple of classics, lol. I think it's a little funny that the older books actually popped into my head first for this list before some of the more recent releases.
