If you’re reading this article then you’re probably in a reading slump and looking for some recommendations to help you break out of the cycle. Am I right? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Back in 2019, I was in such a bad reading slump that I only read three books during the entire year.
Luckily since then I have read over fifty books, and discovered some truly brilliant ones that might just help you to break out of your own reading slump. Here are my top recommendations of YA books to help you get out of a reading slump…
Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
If you’re looking for a good YA mystery trilogy to get your teeth into, Truly Devious is perfect for you. It’s so well written and addictive. The story follows an exclusive boarding school where murders have been committed both in the past and in the present. I guarantee that once you start reading this, you won’t be able to put it down.
A Court Of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J Maas
If you’re a YA fantasy reader and haven’t already read all the Sarah J Maas books, I really don’t know where you’ve been for the past few years. The ACOTAR series is perfect to help you break out of your reading slump; although the start is a little slow, the action soon picks up.
Slated by Teri Terry
This is my favourite dystopian series. As much as I love both The Hunger Games and Divergent, I feel like this is superior in terms of concept. If you’re a fan of dystopians and mysteries, this series is a great choice and I really can’t recommend it enough.
The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
I’ll be straight with you, this is not the best book I’ve ever read but it’s a really good one to get you out of a reading slump. It’s a great concept and a really easy read, therefore the perfect speed read. This is the book that got me out of what I like to call The Great Reading Slump Of 2019.
Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
This is a super easy and enjoyable read. Is it the pinnacle of modern literature? No. Does it give off Wattpad vibes? Maybe. However, I really enjoyed reading it and you can’t go wrong when your protagonist is a songwriter. Definitely a good option to get you out of a reading slump, but I would probably skip the sequel.
Let me know if you decide to read any of these and if you have any other books that you think should be on this list. Don’t forget that you can add me on GoodReads for more book reviews and recommendations!
