My reading slump

Has entered it's second month.  I think this is the longest slump I've had since I started blogging.  I think a lot of it has to do with not being motivated to read and just getting tired of reading extremely similar genres.  I love the YA genre, but I do find myself getting a bit jaded by what has been coming out lately.  Everything seems similar lately.  There is nothing different out there.  Once a sub-genre takes off, then every author decides to jump on the bandwagon and before you know it the market is flooded with vampires, werewolves, zombies, etc.  How many vampire novels (i.e., she's human, he's a vampire, they fall in love) can we stomach?  It's the same with werewolved or shifters.

I enjoy reading dystopian but even those are starting to sound alike.  Sometimes I want something bigger, bolder and badder.  I enjoy steampunk too, but there aren't many of them around in the YA world.  Everything seems to be paranormal and while that is fine and dandy, I like a good piece of normal fiction too.  I want something witty, sly, fun and most of well-written!

Ah well, I'm done with my ranting.  I downloaded Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children, so I hope to get that finished.  I had to return my library copy on Monday because it was due and there was a hold on it.

Have any of you read anything that you absolutely loved that I should give a go?  Post in the comments and I'll let you know if I read it, tried reading it, or will give it a go! :)
