I was in a reading rut for years, these 12 books helped pull me out

Add these to your to-read list.

It's something many of us go through, the dreaded reading rut.
In a digital world, it is all too easy to get lost in the online and forget about the analogue world of books and physical media.
Growing up I was an avid reader, you could not pull me away from a book. But as is only natural, I got older and it became harder and harder to prioritise reading and I became positively stuck in a dreaded reading rut.
However last year, after years of letting my pile of 'to-read' books become dangerously high, I decided once and for all that I was going to get out of my rut.
It certainly wasn't easy. I definitely found myself pushing, pushing, pushing to keep going. But on this journey, I learned to fall back in love with literature and curated some tips to keep me engaged.
Nearly a year and a half later, I can say proudly I am well and truly out of my slump. I'm normally reading a book a fortnight and have had the pleasure of getting lost in some true works of art.

Top tips for getting out of a reading rut

Now I wouldn't be anywhere if it weren't for the books that helped pull me out, in the hopes that these might end up on your shelves or bedside table, below I'm taking a look at some of my very favourites.
Happy reading!
