Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s all about book hangovers. So first of all, what’s a book hangover? (she asks as if we don’t all suffer from this affliction on a monthly basis)
I’m going with the below definition for this post, namely a book hangover is the inability to start a new book because you’re still living in the last book’s world.
So while sometimes book hangovers can last weeks or even months, a small book hangover is still a book hangover. And boy, do I have a lot of small book hangovers. I often struggle with starting a new book because I JUST DON’T WANT TO LEAVE MY LAST READ’S WORLD JUST YET. And when I say often, I mean about 9 times a year, because I checked all my book hangovers of the past year and hey, I have nine examples for you!
Look, I’m sure this is no surprise to anyone, but it’s a fact that every single one of The Guild Codex books has given me a book hangover in the past years because I love this world and these characters so much. I could have added all Annette Marie 2019 releases here but let’s stick to just the latest one 🙂
This is a surprising book to have given me a book hangover because I went into it expecting a simple rom-com and wanted to DNF for a little bit when it turned out it was so much more than just a rom-com. But then I ended up so attached to Georgina’s story and her life and I just wanted her with me for a bit longer.
Ugh this book, I love it so much and I’m still not over it. The fact that I would rather have this sequel sooner than the King of Scars sequel with my favorite Nikolai SAYS IT ALL OKAY?
Sure, this was such a satisfying finale and everything was concluded so nicely, but still… these books just felt waaaay too short and I needed more. I still need more Cardan and Jude. Thank you very much.
This was definitely a ‘damn I thought this was a standalone and now it’s not and I’m attached and have to wait FOREVER for the sequel’-type of hangover.
Another book I almost DNF’ed (due to audiobook narrator issues) but then didn’t and ended up falling in love with. These characters own my heart.
I think it’s a rule that I grow extra attached to characters if there’s a pen pal romance involved. Also, I kind of related to Ruby a lot. Also, Aaron was just such a solidly NICE character and I was rooting for these two so much that I felt like I didn’t have enough of them. Luckily, I could read From Lukov With Love afterwards in which they cameo, so that helped.
This was definitely a case of ‘I will just reread everything from the beginning because no other book will ever compare’-type hangover. And then I reread again a few months later. So this was one of those hangovers that lasted.
Oh Evelyn, you are the best character to have ever been written. I tried to cure my book hangover with Daisy Jones and the Six, which helped a bit but still couldn’t compare to Evelyn.
what’s the last book that gave you a book hangover?
