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! ❤
