In the open Whatcha Reading? thread last weekend, many of you said you were in a reading slump – which sucks. I hate when that happens.
Bryn emailed me and asked:
Reading today’s postings made me think: wouldn’t it be nice to have a list of books from my fellow readers that helped them break out of their reading slump?
If you are ever so inclined I’d love to see the titles that helped my fellow Bitches get their swing back.
Oh, hell, yeah. Of course!
If I'm in a reading slump, I do one of two things. I either go back and re-read something I know I loved and know I'll really enjoy reading again, like the Alpha & Omega series by Patricia Briggs, starting with Cry Wolf ( A | BN | K | S | ARe | iB ). Or, I'll read a little bit of a whole slew of things until I find something that grabs me. Sometimes I take a break and read nonfiction, and when I come back to the fiction, my brain is ready for more.
I don't know if there's a book I could name that's a reading slump destroyer, aside from my most favorite comfort re-reads. What about you? What books have helped you break out of your reading slump? What book do you recommend to someone who is in a slump?
