Discussion Post | 3 Books I read to get over a reading slump

Hey everyone! So, I guess I have been on a sort of a mini-hiatus- I haven’t posted for 5 days, and while that may not be a big deal to some, I usually post every other day, so well. Moving on!

So, recently I did a post 3 Popular Books That I Do Not Like, and while that one was technically a dare, it gave me an idea. I decided to a series of discussions wherein I will talk about 3 books, all of which are related to a thing. Like, in this one I will talk about 3 underrated books, in the next one maybe I will talk 3 Popular books that I want to read ASAP, or something like that. I feel like these posts will be short and sweet, at the same time, engaging y’all. Besides, I have been pretty busy with 12th grade, so I feel like these short posts will help me stay here on the blogosphere.

Today, I will be talking about three books I read to get over a slump. I have recently been in a slump, and usually only one of these three books are enough to get me out of it, but this time I had to get the big guns out , and I am reading the third of these books to get out of the slump. Well, without further ado, let’s get discussing!

1. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

This is like one of my favourite books of all times. It is honestly so good, and I just love it. I just hopped on to Goodreads, to see what other people thought of it, and so many people didn’t like it, and I sorta get that- because Cath could be annoying. But I get what Cath was going through, about being overly dramatic, and scared about the whole college experience, because as someone’s whose going to be in college in less than an year, I feel all of that.
The writing style also didn’t work out for a lot of people, but it definitely worked for me!
I could drone on and one about this book forever, but I won’t. I just go to it whenever I am down- It’s my slump read and my comfort read.

2. If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I feel like this is one book I love a lot but do not talk about enough. I was rereading it just last night, and I got literal goosebumps, and was on the verge of tears at times- despite the fact that I was reading it for like the 10th time. It’s so beautifully written, it’s s impactful. I love how well everything traumatic is written and explained. It’s just… very very good.
I honestly don’t even know what else to say. Just… read it.

3. Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

Turtles All the Way Down is my favourite John Green book. It’s literally the only book by John Green which I feel is slightly underrated, and not overrated. It deals with anxiety and stuff so well, and really got me thinking about some things. It’s a really amazing book!

I recently reread the first two books, and I am rereading Turtles All the Way Down, and I still am not bored of em, so for now these are my reads to go to when I am in a slump! Let me know down below in the comments which ones are yours! Are any of these your favourites, too?

  1. I think I tried Fangirl a few years ago, and it didn’t click (I think I was in a weird mood at the time), but Turtles is definitely on my TBR! I have a friend who swears by it, so it’s good to hear another recommendation! (Not that she’s ever steered me wrong in the past!) Isn’t it funny how certain books can engage you even the midst of a slump? I have a handful I reach for, too – top of the list is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society because it’s so easy to dip in and out of.

  2. I LOVE Fangirl and have reread it what feels close to fifty times already, so I definitely agree with you on that one 😊 And Turtles All the Way Down is my favorite John Green book! I wasn’t absolutely blown away, either, but I think it deserves way more hype than TFIOS, for example 😁

      1. Hey, there aren’t that many books we’ve disagreed on! 😁 If it weren’t for Throne of Glass and Addie LaRue, our bookish opinions might actually be pretty similar 😄


  3. Hmm, I’ve been trying to decide which John Green book to start with. I really enjoy his Crash Course series, but I’ve been a bit unsure where to begin exploring his fiction. Turtles All The Way Down might be the way to go!
