Since Christmas, I’ve gotten myself into a bit of a book-buying habit, which is no good when I’m not reading as fast as I’m buying. So I found myself in a bit of a reading slump while still on a purchasing high! These are a few of the books I purchased that got me out of my reading slump.
Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
Verity by Colleen Hoover
My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix
Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey
The Deal by Elle Kennedy
The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller
Sometimes, as I’ve found recently, in order to get out of a slump, it’s better to read something that would normally be outside of your comfort zone. In my life, I have never enjoyed a horror novel but after reading My Best Friend’s Exorcism, I bought two more of Grady Hendrix’s books and never fail to recommend his work or loan my friends his books!
Other times, it’s best to read a shorter novel with a predictable ending. Nearly every romance novel falls into this category. Of course there’s going to be discourse, but in the end, they always end up together!
After reading 16 books between this January and February, I’m reading back into a post-reading week reading slump and know it’ll be another amazing Grady Hendrix novel or a predictable Tessa Bailey book that will get me back to my TBR pile.
