Last Books that Gave Me a Book Hangover
Top Ten Tuesdays were started by The Broke and the Bookish and are now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.
I’ve honestly been REALLY lucky with this lately. I haven’t had a lot of book hangovers in recent memory! I used to have this problem a lot more haha. I feel like it’s because I’ve somehow been able to get MORE excited to read a new book after finishing a great book, if that makes sense. The only exception is the following, and that wasn’t even a book hangover:
I think the reason I'm not in the mood to read my current books is because all I want is to read THE KING OF CROWS

Here are five books from this year (and a bit last year, sorry) that gave me some kind of book hangover – the book could have fucked me up emotionally so I wasn’t able to move on, or it took me a while to read and made it hard for me to read more afterward, or it was just so damn good I didn’t want to leave the world.
King of Crows by Libba Bray // You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley //
Girls with Razor Hearts by Suzanne Young // Call Down the Hawk by
Maggie Stiefvater // The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black
