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


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. You don’t have to do all ten. Instead you can do three, five, fifteen, whatever you want. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.

Today’s theme is Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump. Now, everyone has a different way or ways to get themselves out of a reading slump. I typically to turn one of three ways to get out of a slump.

1) Read in a different format than usual, such as an audiobook

When you don’t feel like picking up a book sometimes you just need to try something a little different. Instead why not try an audiobook? I turn on an audiobook when I’m cooking, working out, or driving and it always helps me get through a slow reading time.

2) Read an old favorite that you have paged through time and time again

Whether it is a favorite fantasy novel or a poet that gives a comforting feeling, you can always turn to an old favorite to get yourself out of a slump.

3) Read something outside of your normal genre

A great way to get out of a slump is to read something outside of your normal genre. Since I usually read fantasy I have found that romance, horror/thriller, and mysteries are great choices to get back my reading mojo.


Usually one of these tricks helps me get out of a reading slump. Is there another way you find works for you? Tell me about it!

  1. This is such a great take on this week’s prompt! I definitely go back to old favourites or I read short books to get out of a reading slump. I should have included Keats’ poetry in my TTT this week!

  2. I like the twist and totally agree with mixing up the format and returning to favorites. I always struggle when it comes to expanding out to different genres, but I know I need to and that it would absolutely help spark the desire to read again! Great way to make this prompt your own!

    I also did my own thing this week and instead chose to provide an update on my past seasonal TBRs and show of my progress — or lack thereof lol! Feel free to check it out:

      1. Trevor Noah’s memoir is really fun to listen to, he’s funny but the content is also very informative and also heartwarming ❤
