Top Ten Authors Who Can Get Me Out Of A Reading Slump

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

I’ve decided to slightly adapt the prompt this week and instead of books that’ll get me out of a slump… authors I can rely on to get me out of a reading slump!

  1. Roald Dahl– His books are just so fun to read!
  2. J.K. Rowling– If it’s a serious slump, I sometimes need to re-read a Harry Potter book!
  3. Kasie West– I can always guarantee that her books will be fun!
  4. Heather Demetrios– Her books are quite deep but they always engross me.
  5. Ceceila Ahern– I love how magical her books are.
  6. Jojo Moyes– She’s a terrific writer.
  7. Paula Daly– She’s one of my favourite thriller writers. Her books always grip me.
  8. Emma Carroll– I can never go wrong with a Emma Carroll book. Her books are enchanting.
  9. David Walliams– David is the closest recent writer to Roald Dahl. His books are fabulous.
  10. Patrick Ness– I do enjoy Patrick’s writing, so the thought of reading one of his books can encourage me to climb out of the slump!

What brings you out of a slump? Feel free to leave a link to your post and I’ll stop by!

  1. Great list, Chrissi! Roald Dahl is such a good call – I re-read his books so much when I was younger, especially Fantastic Mr. Fox, and he’s an author I turn to when I’m feeling low.

  2. I recently did a TTT featuring my favorite adult reads, and both Moyes and Ahern made my list. I really enjoy their work. KWest always makes me smile, and I will always be reading her books.

  3. Kasie West and Patrick Ness’s books have been on my TBR for a long time so I’ll definitely remember to pick them up next time I’m in a slump! 🙂

  4. Nice twist on this week’s prompt. I am guessing these are your auto-buy authors? I know some but I have to check the others.

    I’ve read books by Jojo Moyes (Me Before You) and Kasie West IThe Fill-In Boyfriend)

    I bought The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness but I haven’t read it yet.

    Great choice with HP books! It’s a classic go-to that never fails to put back the joy in reading again. I have to check Queen Jo’s other works tho. 🙂

  5. Oh, I adore Kasie West! Her books are so fluffy and fun! I discovered her last year and I want to devour everything she writes! I need to read Patrick Ness sometime! Happy Tuesday! 😀

  6. YAY for the Kasie West love. She’s the perfect author for this topic! Also, I’ve heard of Ceceila Ahern, but haven’t read her books, and of course, someday I am determined to read “Me Before You.” Or maybe I’ll just skip the “bookworm” pain of reading the story and instead watch the two-hour movie. 😉

    Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland.

  7. I think the only authors of your list that I’ve read are J.K. Rowling and Kasie West… never in a slump though! For all I’ve reread Harry Potter numerous times, it isn’t really my go to for this? Which is maybe weird?

  8. I think the only one I’ve read so far from this list is Roald Dahl. I hear a lot of good things about many of these authors though! What they say about there being so many good books and so little time is so true!

  9. I like how you went with authors here! Great idea. Kasie West and Patrick Ness (I have the Knife of Never LEtting go around here somewhere lol) are two authors I want to try. And Roald Dahl- totally agree!
