I’ve been in such a massive reading slump lately. Honestly I feel like I haven’t picked up a book in about two weeks. I’ve got so much going on right now and my health has taken a slight turn in the wrong direction and I feel I have been so unmotivated to read anything. It upsets me so much when I can’t read as I feel like I have no escape.
But I think I’m finally ready to start pushing against this slump and start reading again. These are the books I’ve been currently trying to get through and also some recently finished ones.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare: I have heard nothing but praise for the Infernal Devices series and I am so excited to get more into this book!
Coming to Our Senses by Jon Kabat Zinn: I have read all of Jon’s books and have absolutely loved them. I find them incredibly useful for mental health problems and I have learned so many incredible ways of coping with them.
The Greek Myths by Robert Graves: If you don’t know by now, I have a slight obsession with the Graeco-Roman era. I love reading about the Greek campaigns and myths and I’m absolutely fascinated by them.
How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie: I decided to listen to this book on audiobook. I like to listen to motivational ebooks when I’m working out (clearly I’m a fan of multi-tasking) and also while in the car, on a walk etc.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling: Do I ever need an excuse to re-read Harry Potter? I can’t count how many times I’ve re-read this book, but I just adore it more and more every time. I think the Goblet of Fire is the book when everything turned so much more intense and it’s one of my favourites because we get to see how the characters deal with their new frightening reality at the end of the book.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas: The highly anticipated third book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. I have just fallen head over heels in love with this series (and a certain High Lord of the Night Court..) and I would highly recommend giving this series a read.
Doing It! by Hannah Witton: I’m a fan of Hannah’s YouTube channel and when I heard she was releasing a book I knew I wanted to support her. I honestly do think this book should be considered for school education on sex ed. Personally when I was in school we had an unbelievably close-minded, and limited sex ed conversation. Something definitely needs to change about the education.
You are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero: I read Jen’s first book You Are A Badass and honestly didn’t think I could love it more. And then this book came around and guess what? I loved it more. I love how she combines subtle nods to the law of attraction as well as her real life experience and expertise in her field. Overall I think anyone going into business, or any career path really, to pick this up.
Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan: I’m a huge fan of all of Rick Riordan books. I really liked this first book to the Magnus Chase series and I loved learning more about Norse mythology.
Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan: Upon further reflection, I do definitely prefer to Graeco-Roman period of history and so I definitely do prefer the Percy Jackson series and Heroes of Olympus series, but I still cannot wait for the third book in this series.
How do you guys get out of a reading slump? I would honestly love to know!
