Top Five Books To Pull You Out of a Reading Slump

Top Ten Tuesday new

It’s Top Ten Tuesday again!  It’s a weekly bookish list hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is:


Ah, reading slumps…how we loathe them!  Yet, despite that, we’ve all fallen into a slump or two that just does not want to leave us.  This week is a busy week for me, so I’m only able to do a top five today, but I’m sharing five books that have helped me get out of reading slumps, and will, hopefully, pull you out of yours, too!

Everything, Everything

everything everything


I think Everything Everything is such a great book to help you get out of a reading slump!  The actual book is fairly short, there are also a lot illustrations and part in emails and texts, and this book is just so readable that once you start you won’t want to stop until it’s over!

The Princess Diaries

the princess diaires

Honestly, anything by Meg Cabot could be on this week’s list.  She is one of my favorite authors, and all of her books are just so well-written and readable.  The Princess Diaries, in particular, is one of my favorites.  Mia is such a sassy and memorable character!  Plus, the entire book is written in journal entries, which always makes for a fun and quick read!

Say what you will about Twilight, but there is a reason it was as popular as it was.  This book encouraged so many people to be readers.  Twilight is so fun and mysterious, and it is one book that will quickly grab your attention, which makes it perfect to help you out of a reading slump.

The Program


When I first read The Program, I actually remember that I was on the verge of a reading slump.  I was in the middle of a readathon, and I wasn’t doing as well as I had hoped.  I picked this book up only because it matched one of the challenges.  I ended up devouring The Program!  I read this book so quickly and did not ever want to put it down.  It was so intriguing and kept me glued to the pages until the very last one.

The Hunger Games

the hunger games

Just like Twilight, there’s definitely a reason why this series was so popular!  The Hunger Games is just written in a way that makes you never want to stop reading.  It’s been years since I first read The Hunger Games, and yet, this series has still stuck with me.  I really need to reread it soon!

That wraps up this week’s TTT!  As you can probably tell, for me, YA contemporaries and dystopians are the books that help me escape those dreaded reading slumps.  An old favorite always helps, too!

What are some books that help you get out of reading slumps?

  1. Confession: I’ve never actually read The Princess Diaries–but I’ve always wanted to! I’ll have to keep that in mind the next time I’m looking to escape a reading slump.

    • That’s so cool!! I would love to be able to read a book in a different language, but unfortunately, even though I took 3 1/2 years of Spanish in high school, I’m still not that great. 🙈
