Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.
I hit a huge reading slump in July. We’ve all been there but, oh man, it sucks. Since I gravitate toward YA fantasy on a regular basis, I figured I’d list some genres that help move me out of a reading slump!
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen, My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella, The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan
2) Cozy mysteries
Cozy cat mysteries such as Double-Booked for Death by Ali Brandon
Anything by Karin Slaughter!
4) Sci-fi thrillers
The Wayward Pines series by Blake Crouch, Sleeping Giants (Themis Files) by Sylvain Neuvel
5) Graphic novels
Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
6) Start a series
Choose a fast-paced, consumable series such as Grisha or Caraval
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
8) Do a buddy read
Find a friend to read the same book at the same time! Sometimes it helps me to stay motivated to read!
9) Listen to an audiobook or read something in a different format
Still Missing by Chevy Stevens is A+ on audio! Also, The Illuminae Files is told in mixed-media format which makes for a great reading AND listening experience.
10) It’s ok to take a break!
It’s ok to NOT be reading. Go watch Netflix, start a project, or take a nap. I am serious. I’ve been burned out by reading too much and it is the worst feeling!
What do you do to get out of a reading slump? I’d love to hear more tips! ❤

Contemporary and romance are great ways to pull you out of a reading slumps. Great post 💕
I think I naturally grab a romance-themed contemporary when I’m in a slump because they’re so “easy” to read, but I love the ideas mentioned here. I also think buddy reads are super helpful because they hold you accountable and force you to get ish done! lol. I also think it’s super wise that you included the fact that it’s okay to slump if that’s what YOU need! Great post!
I went my own way this week and decided to update y’all on my past seasonal TBR list progress. Feel free to check it out: http://bit.ly/2w1tSD0
Yay Caraval! And I need to read The Hating Game haha
I absolutely loved The Hating Game!!
Great tips. Reading too many similar books puts me into a slump. Trying a new genre will sometimes get me out of the slump.
