The Reading Slump Killers.

When I think about getting out of a reading slump the first things that come to my mind are: short, romance, fast paced. And if you throw a touch of YA in the middle, you get my perfect combo. I don't know why I'm so drawn to plots with high school drama and mean girls, maybe it's because I had a very peaceful high school experience.. I was always in the middle, not popular, but not picked on. Anyway, I love me some fast paced, YA romance, with a touch of teenage drama in it. 

I feel like they're the perfect picks for getting you out of a reading slump too because they're usually fast paced and really suck you in all that bullshit that at the end of the day doesn't really matter, like at all - kinda like youtube drama in real life. I know it's not cool or healthy to get sucked on it, but all enjoy a little gossip here and there.. I'm reading Sapiens at the moment and it says right there that humans enjoy gossip, it's in our genes. So, let's get you out of that dreaded reading slump!
How To Break A Boy - Laurie Devore // This is my most recent read and I loved it. It's going to be feature on my next Reading Wrap-Up, which is going up real soon! Like I said before, I would recommend this because it's a super fast paced and intriguing. There's gossip, there's relationship drama between best friends and boyfriends. I read this last Saturday night, in multiple sittings but in only one day. 

The Lying Game - Sara Shepard // I picked up this book because I was craving something like Pretty Little Liars before the big TV show finale. It's from the same author and it's very similar to PLL. It has long lost twins, mean girls, a small town and a lot of secrets. If you loved the PLL series and you're in the mood for more, this is the book for you. This was also picked up for a TV Show, but I'm pretty sure it was canceled after the second or third season - you can still find it online, but it's really really bad. You read more about it here

The Fill-In Boyfriend - Kasie West // I loved this book so much. It's super cute, sweet and cheesy. One of those love stories where everything works out and everyone is happy at the end. The main selling point for me was the fake-boyfriend aspect, stories like this are my secret pleasure. You can read more about my thoughts on it here.

Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda - Becky Albertalli // This was one of my favorite books of 2016 so you can imagine how much I loved it. It's a diverse novel, it features are anonymous online relationship between two boys in a school that are not out yet, but somehow they find each other online and they fall in love. When they met I literally had tears in my eyes. I would highly recommend this for killing a reading slump because this story is going to hook you from the first chapter, you'll not be able to put this book down until you find out who the other boy is. I've talked about this book before right here.

Wedding Night - Sophie Kinsella // This book is on this list because Shopie Kinsella is the queen of romantic comedies, in my opinion. Her books are always so light and funny, and they just put you in a good mood. This one is bigger than the other ones on this list, but it's so fast paced and entertaining that I flew through it. I've loved all of her books I've read in the past and I'm kinda making it my mission to read all her works. You can check out my mini-review on it right here!

Those are just some of my recent picks for killing the reading slump before it matures. If you want more recommendations of fast paced books like these, you can check out this post right here. Reading slumps are the worst and incredibly annoying, specially when you're trying to accomplish a Reading Challenge. I hope these books help you out in this critical time of your reading life. And let me know on the comments how you usually deal with a reading slump when you feel it coming - I feel like the first step is to put aside to book that brought it on and pick up something different!

How do you usually get out of a Reading Slump?

Let's hang some more!

Thanks so much for reading and I'll talk to you soon!
