In case you haven't noticed, I'm going through what is probably the biggest reading slump I've ever been in. Other than school books and review books, I haven't been reading anything and it's been bugging me a lot. I look at the books on my shelves and it genuinely hurts me that I can't find time nor motivation to read, which is why I put together this post. Hopefully, I'll be able to pick one of these books up and get back into reading!
1. Demigods & Magicians, by Rick Riordan
This is one of those extra books authors come out with that always makes everyone super happy. Not only are books like this very short, they also bring you back to the fantasy world you loved so much and simply remind you of why you like to read.
2. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, by J.K. Rowling
This one's a given. The first book also being the shortest makes it easier to read, but not any less interesting. The first book is a lot of people's favorite for a reason: the introduction to a magical world that will stay with us forever. Rereading this book is easy because you already know you love it, and it'll just make you read more books.
3. Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maud Montgomery
I've read this book so many times I can't even count, and it remains one of my all time favorites. I love children's stories and this one is simply so beautiful, and captures the essence of youth in the best possible way. Anne's innocence is the most precious thing in the world and this book is so easy to read. It was also given to Polish soldiers during WWII to give them hope so you know this book is a happy one!
4. Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda, by Becky Albertalli
Remember when this book was everyone's favorite book last summer? I remember wanting to buy it so much but it was so hard for me to spend $25 on a book, until I finally got it and read it. I will admit that it wasn't as good as I expected it to be, but nevertheless was a quick and fun read, which is why I would pick it up on a bad day just to get some reading done.
5. Maus, by Art Spiegelman
Would you believe me if I said I got to read this book for English class? It was an absolute gem to read, and I've been wanting to get into graphic novels recently and this was the perfect book. I had the best time reading it and although it deals with harder topics, I think everyone should read this book at least once in their lifetime!
I hope you enjoyed this short post, and if you're like me, in a horrible slump, I wish us luck to get over it!
