Top Ten Tuesday is an original blog meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. and is currently being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump.” I don’t know a bookworm who hasn’t experienced a reading slump before. I’m one of the lucky ones and my reading slumps don’t usually last longer than a week. I don’t have a magical formula to cure this common ailment as time seems to be the best medicine for me, but I have found that picking up shorter stories in whatever form is usually pretty helpful if I want to push through a slump. Here are ten graphic novels, novellas, short novels, and books of poetry (including novels in verse) that I’d recommend anyone who finds themselves in a slump, but who wants to pick up something short. Covers are linked to Goodreads.
What kind of books do you pick up when you are in a slump? Let me know in the comments and be sure to leave me a link to your own TTT post, so I can visit.
