It’s that time of the year again…. I’m in a bit of a book slump. It happens to the best of us. After gorging myself with so many books I’m finding it a bit difficult to get myself excited about reading. Luckily, since this has happened to me before I happen to know the perfect cure to my reading affliction. All I need to get myself out of this slump is a a good book. A really good book. A fantastic earth shattering book that I can’t put down! Unfortunately, until I’ve read a book I can never really tell how much I’m going to like it. That’s where you come in. I need your help fellow bloggers/readers! I need a prescription for a really good book! One that will get me out of this book slump!
I’ve spent the past hour looking through my to-read list on Goodreads, and have compiled a list of books that I think might be good, but I’m not sure…. Each book has me hesitating for a different reason.
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
I’ve LOVED both Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door, but I’m a bit scared that I’ll be disappointed in Isla and the Happily Ever After. Plus, I don’t want this series to come to an end! Even though I bought the book two weeks ago I haven’t even read the first page yet!
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
People have been telling me for years that this is one of the best YA Fantasy novels out there, but I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. I know I’ll probably enjoy it, but I’m not sure if it will be capable of getting me out of my book slump.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
This book was getting rave reviews from Library Journal when it first came out, and I’ve been wanting to read it ever since! The only thing holding me back about this book is that I think it might be sad….and I’m not really in the mood for a sad book right now.
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Braken
I’ve only heard great things about The Darkest Minds from my fellow booktubers, and it does sound really fantastic! But is it fantastic enough to fix my book slump?
Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson
I read Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson earlier this year and LOVED it, so I’ve been dying to read more books by her. I’ve hesitated about picking up Blackmoore, however, because I’m worried that it won’t measure up to my love for Edenbrooke. Plus…my library doesn’t own a copy of it….
So, which of the books above do you think I should read next? Or, do you know of a book not listed above that could possibly get me out of my book slump? I’m open to any suggestions that you may have! HELP ME!
