Top 5 Wednesday was created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes – details about this group can be found on Goodreads. This week’s topic is novels that will get you out of a reading slump. Sadly, I experience reading slumps so often so this list will be reads that have personally gotten me out of reading slumps, and for me these reads tend to be cute contemporaries 🙂
1. Attachments – Rainbow Rowell
I like Attachments a lot, and whereas Fangirl and Eleanor and Park put me in serious reading slumps, Attachments got me obsessed with reading back when I first read it.
2. Sincerely Carter – Whitney G.
I remember reading this novel randomly one day, and I really enjoyed it. It’s such a cute friends to lovers college romance.
3. The Lover’s Dictionary – David Levithan
I read this on a train journey one day back when I was a student and I really liked it. It was a change for me to read this more poetic YA book and it’s a book that stuck with me years later. Really recommend it if you have an hour to spare.
4. Pucked Series – Helena Hunting
I read the first Pucked novel after Colleen Hoover’s Ugly Love, which I’m sure put me in a slump for a while, and this series is such fun – just really lighthearted with a bunch of funny characters.
5. Graffiti Moon – Cath Crowley
I’ve actually read this book twice, and I re-read it shortly after I read A Song of Achilles. The second time I read it was on another train journey (from London, that time) and it was so much fun! The train journey was so chill and quiet and I just sat with my head in the book the entire time. Probably the nicest experience on public transport I’ve had in my life!
