3 Books To Get You Out Of Reading Slump

Wednesday, February 1, 2023

Any new habit might be challenging to establish. As motivation wanes, we resume our old, well-known routines after neglecting our new goal for a number of days in a row. We give up more quickly and easily, and we frequently and continuously set new goals. Sometimes choosing the right book to read can help us get out of the reading slump. In this post, I will share with you 3 books that I read in January that helped me get out of the reading slump.

1. Always and Forever Lara Jane  by Jenny Han 

The best senior year ever belongs to Lara Jean. There is still a lot to look forward to, including her dad's wedding to Ms. Rothschild, the class trip to New York City, the prom with her lover Peter, and Beach Week after graduation. After that, she'll be leaving with Peter for college in a location close enough for her to return home on the weekends and bake chocolate chip cookies. The quality of life is wonderful! That is, at least, what Lara Jean believes until she learns some unexpected information. Fearful of change, she must now reconsider all of her plans, but which one should she listen to when her heart and mind speak two different languages?

I finally read the last book of the trilogy. This YA novel would be a good choice for anyone looking for a quick and enjoyable read. This is the first book I read in 2023, and I'm happy that I finished this trilogy. There is also a movie adaptation for this trilogy, so it is always nice to see the difference between the books and the movies. 


2. Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover 

Tate Collins meets Miles Archer, an airline pilot, and they know that it is not love at first sight when they first meet. They wouldn't even consider themselves friends. There is no denying that Tate and Miles are attracted to each other. They understand they have the ideal situation once their desires are made clear. The only option left is sex because he doesn't want love and she doesn't have time for love. If Tate can follow the two guidelines Miles has for her, their arrangement might be surprisingly easy. Do not inquire about the past. Don't count on the future. They believe they can manage it but quickly come to the realization that they cannot. 

This is the second book I read in 2023, but it was the one that broke my reading slump. Once I started reading it, I just couldn't stop. The writing style is fast and easy to understand. The only complaint I had was that there were too many sexual scenes. I do understand those moments were important for the story, but I would rather see more of the tension-building scenes. 


3. Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon 

Evie has the ability to see other people's romantic futures in this passionate page-turner by the author of Everything, Everything, and The Sun is Also a Star. Evie Thomas no longer believes in love. Particularly when the strangest thing happens on an otherwise typical afternoon: She sees a couple kiss and is struck by visions of how their romance began and how it will end. After all, even the most heartfelt love stories inevitably result in heartbreak. Evie is studying to waltz, fox-trot, and tango with a male named X at La Brea Dance Studio while she attempts to comprehend why this is happening. X is all the things Evie isn't: brave, passionate, and adventurous. His guiding principle is to always say yes, even when it means signing up for a ballroom dancing competition with a girl he's just met. Evie obviously did not envision herself falling for X. Nobody can escape love undamaged, if her visions of heartbreak have taught her anything at all. Evie is compelled to reevaluate all she believed she knew about life and love as she and X dance around and toward one another. Is love ultimately worth the risk?

This is a very cute YA novel that can help you get back into reading. The way it is written is easy to understand, and you want to keep reading. If you are looking for something much more interesting, then I would not recommend this book.
