These are the books that you had on your nightstand “in progress” for months or years. The books that you took weeks to read because they put you in a slump. Those books that were an uphill battle. These are books you started and actually read, not books you’ve just had on your shelf the longest.
There are so many books that could make this list because my mood changes constantly and sometimes books just suck and they are hard to get through. The below 5 books took me awhile to get through not because they were awful but because I tried to pick them up when I wasn’t in the mood for them. In the end, I really enjoyed each of these books and while the journey was long, it was certainly a good one.
