“When I wake up, the other side of the bed is cold.”First line in The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Hi, guys. I’m doing a Top Ten Tuesday for once. Today the topic is: The last ten books that gave me a book hangover. If you don’t know what a book hangover is, it’s basically that feeling you have after reading an amazing book and you’re convinced that you’ll never find such a good book again. At the same time you just want more of what you just read so you frantically search for similar reads but it will never be the same.
(When you read in public as much as I do, this happens quite frequently)
I’m not someone who experiences very serious book hangovers. Some people find they can’t read another book for a while but I can easily do that. That means that it was a little bit of a struggle for me to find 10 books for this list but I managed. Some of them are pretty old though.
Half Lost by Sally Green (Final book in The Half Bad Trilogy)
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson (First book in The Stormlight Archive)
The Binding by Bridget Collins
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden (Final book in the Winternight Trilogy)
Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman (Second book in the Arc of a Scythe trilogy)
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Yes, all of them)
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
(And last but certainly not least)
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
There you have 10 books that had such a huge impact on me that I couldn’t think about anything else for days and sometimes weeks or months (looking at you, A Little Life). Do you experience book hangovers often? If so, what was the book that caused the worst one? Hope you’ve had a good start to the week. Bye!
