How to overcome your reading slump pt.2

Even if you are a true book worm, a reading slump never fails to leave you uninspired and unenthusiastic! Whether you’re struggling to read ‘One Last Chapter’ (get it?) or whether you just need a change, here are three books that will reignite your passion for reading and help you break free!

1. The Secret History by Donna Tartt

Donna Tartt's ‘The Secret History’ is a compelling story that will keep you eagerly engaged. Set in an exclusive New England college, this psychological thriller follows a group of unconventional students who, guided by their mysterious professor, explore the darker side of intellectualism and ancient Greek culture. As their connections deepen, they find themselves caught in a web of lies, betrayal, and murder. Tartt's rich writing and skillful storytelling create an immersive experience that will make it difficult to set this book aside.

 2. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

If you're in search of a more introspective reading experience, ‘The Bell Jar’ by Sylvia Plath is a poignant and potent choice. This partly autobiographical novel takes you into the thoughts of Esther Greenwood, a young woman dealing with her identity and mental health during the 1950s. Plath's candid and poetic writing offers a profound and touching exploration of themes such as societal expectations, depression, and the fight for independence. Esther's journey is both heart-wrenching and uplifting, making this a classic that deeply connects with readers of all generations. This book is also suitable for those who are interested in novels like ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ but are also seeking darker themes, a good start for those who enjoy captivating reads!

 3. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

For those craving a compelling mystery, Agatha Christie's ‘And Then There Were None’ is the ideal choice. This essential whodunit revolves around ten strangers invited to a secluded island under various guises. Once there, they discover they are being accused of dreadful crimes, and one by one, they begin to meet their demise. With a cleverly crafted plot and a range of fascinating characters, Christie spins a suspenseful story that keeps you guessing until the end. It's no surprise that this book is regarded as one of the greatest mysteries of all time.

We strongly advise against reading books authored by Jane Austen, Wilbur Smith, etc., unless that's your preferred style. These books are intricate and require time to fully appreciate.

That’s all for today! Thank you for reading and see you soon :)
