Top 5 Books To Read To Get Over A Reading Slump

Sometimes you just can’t get into the book you’re reading. Sometimes you’re just bored and uninterested in your TBR. Trust me, I’ve been in the same boat where I just did not feel like reading. Here are 5 books that are great for getting over a reading slump that has worked for me.

Maybe Someday by Coleen Hoover

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover – The perfect book to get over a reading slump. Read my review on it.

The Storied Life Of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin – I read this in one sitting. Very well written and one of my favorite books.

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon – A YA contemporary that keeps you turning pages. Plus, a lot of the pages have images so it goes by really fast.

Saga Vol. 1 By Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples
Saga, Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples – Graphic novels and comic books are great to get over slumps since they are usually quick reads and the pictures make it fun. Love this series. Keep in mind that it is mature content.

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown – I like children’s books because they are simple and easy to follow, perfect for when you’re just not that into reading anything else. This is one of my favorite children’s books.

My Top 5 Most Read Authors

I most likely found this tag somewhere on BookTube and thought I’d post about it here. Basically, if you have a Goodreads account, you go to My Books and on the left-hand side towards the bottom, there is a link that says Most Read Authors. It lists for you the most books you’ve read from that author.

Although I try to read one book from different authors, here are my most read authors, which seem to all be because of series’:

#5 Bill Willingham – writer of the Fables comics. I think they are great books but I don’t see myself continuing the series past Volume 8. There is just too many plot lines, perspectives, etc.

#4 C. S. Lewis – author of Chronicles of Narnia series.

#3 L. M. Montgomery – author of Anne of Green Gables series.

#2 J. K. Rowling – author of the Harry Potter series.

#1 Kyung-ah Choi – creator of Snow Drop graphic novels. I was actually surprised when I saw her as #1. I think her books were one of the first graphic novels/comics that I’ve read.

Top 5 Bookish Pet Peeves

Being an avid reader, especially of physical books, there are some general annoyances that I experience.

1) Folded corners – A pretty common pet peeve but I feel this can be easily avoided by using a scrap of paper, a pen, basically any object small enough to fit in the book. I don’t mind breaking the spine or splayed covers because that can’t be helped. Especially if you read a lot of books, put a bookmark in it!

2) The movie version of books, stickers about the movie, little blurbs about the movie – I don’t know why this annoys me. Especially when I want to buy a book, there doesn’t seem to be the non-movie cover of the book. This is also one of the reasons I don’t like buying books from Amazon unless I can be sure it’s not the movie version.

3) No synopsis on the back of the book or inside cover – Instead there is a bunch of praise for the book. Who cares if I don’t know what the book is about? Why do they even put praises on back covers or inside? I’ve seen books with pages of praise including other books of the author. Why?

4) Really really long chapters or really really long run on sentences or a wall of text – I like shortish chapters so that I can stop and think about what I just read or need to take a break. If it’s a wall of text, I just zone out.

5) Unique character names – Especially when it’s hard to pronounce. I’m going to be reading that name throughout the book and it bothers me that I’m saying it wrong the whole time.

What are your book pet peeves?
