Stuck in a reading slump?

Do you ever feel like not reading? It’s weird, right? I get into reading slumps sometimes, usually after I finish a particularly amazing book. Everything after that seems so dull in comparison that no matter what book I pick up I don’t feel like reading it. Well, this post is designed to help you through those tough times! I have tried to pick books that aren’t very popular or common so that there is a better chance of you not having read them already. I have read all of these books and they are all fantastic, so you really can’t go wrong!

Are you in the mood for…


Read The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater,

The Alchemyst by Michael Scott,

or  The King in the Window by Adam Gopnik.

Contemporary YA?

Read Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley,

Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta,

or Every Day by David Levithan.


Read Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins,

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell,

or This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith.

Science Fiction?

Read Gone by Michael Grant,

The Maze Runner by James Dashner,

or Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.
