Top Ten Tuesday: Books to Break a Slump

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl.
This week we're discussing books that can break a slump.

Alexia's Picks
1. Caraval by Stephanie Garber.
I think I've talked about this book more than enough, but it's a book that I literally can't stop talking about. I was in a bit of a mood when I picked it up the first time, so I set it down for awhile. When I picked it up the second time, I just fell in love with all of it.

2. The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed.
This book made me stabby, bit it was a book that was an improvement over the two previous books I had read & subsequently DNFed.

3. White Rabbit by Caleb Roehrig.
Such. A. Good. Book. I was in a weird reading mood for awhile before I read this one. I kept picking books up & then putting them down a short time later. This book was a game changer.

4. Frostblood by Elly Blake.
I was so surprised at how much I enjoyed this one. It was a welcome change from the subpar books I was also reading.

5. Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake.
Another book that made me stabby, but it also turned my reading around. Of course, I struggled picking up any book after this one.

6. Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson.
I was so nervous about this book because I had high hopes for it. I had just finished a book that had disappointed me and I was reluctant to pick up this one because I really didn't want to be disappointed again.

7. The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
I was in a massive book slump when I picked this one up, and before I knew it, I flew through this book and the next book in the series. Love when that happens.

8. The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma.
I started reading this one around Halloween last year and it was the PERFECT time to dive in. I had been reading a bunch of good books around this time and then started & stopped several books before picking this one up.

9. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys.
Historical fiction is kinda a hit or miss for me. This one was a definite hit. I read it during our readathon a few years back and I was going into it really nervous, but hopeful.

10. The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay.
This book was one of the first books to break me out of my slump when I was still a newbie at book blogging. It was & still is one of the most beautiful books I've ever read.

Did any of my picks pull you out of a reading slump?


  1. All of these books sound so interesting! Will definitely add to my TBR. Stumbled upon your blog from Top Ten Tuesday's blog!

  2. This is the second time I've seen Allegedly and I think I really want to give it a try. Nice list!
