Reads that Gave Me a Book Hangover

“A book hangover is a condition where a reader’s emotional investment in a book leaves them at a loss once the book ends. They can’t get into another book, and they want all their next reads to be as good as the last book. This can last days, or weeks, depending on the book.”

Book hangovers are real…I know I have a book hangover when I go to open my kindle, audible, or physical book and am disappointed when I realize the book I’m currently reading is no longer that last book.

So, here’s my list of recent reads that left me with a book hangover because they were that good! I want you to know about these, because while they will cause a book hangover, they can also cure one. It’s a bit like the hair of the dog…

  1. This is a great list! The cover of The Ten Thousand Doors of January never fails to make me do a double take haha, and I also really want to read the book! Ready Player One was a fantastic book and definitely deserves all the hype. I actually ended up getting the opposite of a book slump after reading it, as in it made me want to read more πŸ˜„.
