Is Harry Potter too obvious? I'm fairly new to your blog so forgive me if I mention something you've read already or have already written about. But when I'm in a rut I just need a real page-turner to get me to turn of the tube and instead curl up with my book. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo/Girl Who Played with Fire did that for me recently. As for just generally getting out of a rut, when I'm feeling especially non-readery, I like to go back to young adult fiction. It's just so... readable. And reminds you of being young and falling in love with reading in the first place.


I don't know much about you, but I am a fellow 20-something female avid reader, and I just read Woman on the Edge of Time by Margaret Piercy. It was very good! I wrote a summary and review if you want more info:

For a very different experience, try "The Book of Night Women" by Marlon James. It's definitely NOT what you'd expect from the title.


Was She Pretty? by Leanne Shapton is a must-have and will snap you right out of that reading rut.

It's fast though (lots of drawings), so some others you might like...

Three Girls and Their Brother by Theresa Rebeck

Sharp Teeth by Toby Barlow

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

Finding Nouf by Zoe Ferraris

I just finished The Girl Who Fell From the Sky by Heidi W. Durrow and loved it. Great for a reading rut because it's fairly short (not too intimidating), and tells a really gripping story. And it's full of Important Themes but doesn't feel like an Important Book that you won't want to pick up.
