Top 5 Wednesday is currently being hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to learn more about the group or are considering joining in, check out the Goodreads group. Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic. All links will take you to Goodreads. This week’s topic is top five books to help get you out of a reading slump. Two things always help get me out of a reading slump: a fast-paced book or a book with a really cute, pretty light story and so most of these books will fit into one of those categories.
I read this back in September after being in a bit of a reading slump and this is 100% what pulled me out of it. This isn’t always really fluffy, but man, it has some great swoon-worthy parts. I can easily see myself rereading this next time I’m in a slump and looking for something to pull me out of it.
This is one of those books that once you start reading it, it’s really hard to put it down. I remember reading a lot of this in a 3-hour car ride and I spent most of the ride reading which is usually pretty rare for me since for some reason I have a hard time focusing on books in the car. So for this to be able to hold my attention is pretty impressive. Anyway, you’ll be too desperate to keep turning the pages and see what’s happening, you won’t have time to be in a slump. 😉
This whole series is pretty great if you’re in a slump and looking for something fast-paced to get you out of it, but the first book is especially great. This book does not stop and I absolutely adored it. Perfect for fans of YA sci-fi!
This is another one that’s definitely not all smiles and fluff, but I still think it’s a pretty captivating book and could help you power through a slump. YA contemporaries, in general, are usually pretty good for that kind of thing. 🙂
I absolutely adored this book and I feel like I don’t talk about it nearly as often as I should. This could definitely help you out of a reading slump since it’s a pretty feel-good story (I mean, there are parts that aren’t, but overall it’s pretty great) and it’s really funny. Dumplin’ actually made me laugh out loud multiple times which I almost never do when I’m reading. I’d definitely recommend this one!
