Top 5 Books to Get You Out of a Reading Slump
If you have a reading goal for this year, you may find yourself lacking motivation at times. Some books are fantastic, but have a slower pace that makes it difficult to get through when you are already struggling to find the energy to pick up a book. Here are five books that once you start, you will not be able to put down.
- In A Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
I read this a few years ago and am planning to read it again soon. This mystery novel allows you to follow the main character as she tries to piece together the events that resulted in her ending up in the hospital. It’s a traditional murder mystery that reminds me of the game Until Dawn without the supernatural elements.
- And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
If you are looking for a classic to add to your bookshelf, I highly recommend And Then There Were None. Another crime novel that is even harder to put down. If you have a rainy day to dedicate to reading, you will be able to finish this book in one day. The writing and alternating perspectives of the story keeps you on your toes as you try to solve the mystery.
- The Second Time Around by Mary Higgins Clark
Mystery novels are becoming a theme. The Second Time Around is another book that alternates perspectives throughout the story. A journalist works to find the truth behind the disappearance of a man who has made a lot of enemies by scamming and manipulating people.
- The Last Juror by John Grisham
Centered around another murder, The Last Juror follows a journalist as he reports on the trial following a great tragedy in a small town. John Grisham’s writing style is fantastic, but so far this book of his has been the hardest to put down.
- It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover
Colleen Hoover has exploded in popularity this year. Her most talked about book on social media has been It Ends With Us. Though many talk about the book as a romance, there is a lot more depth to the story. This book will tug at your heartstrings and make you cry. You follow the main character through the ups and downs of her roller coaster of a life. This book deals with heavy issues, including domestic violence. It is definitely a heavier read, but a quick one as you will be rooting for the main character to find happiness.
