Hi everyone! I’m actually posting a TTT on Tuesday! The last couple of weeks it has been a mash up of TTT and WWW because I had been busy on both Tuesdays and couldn’t write the post! But, it’s all good! The prompt for this week is ‘The Last Ten Books That Gave Me a Book Hangover’ and honestly, I haven’t had a whole lot of books to give me a hangerover over the past couple of years, so I may have to think over a long period of time. I’ll try to talk about the most recent ones first!
Top ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by thatartsyreadergirl
This month’s TTT prompts:
- 5 Star Predictions
- My Favorite Book Boyfriends (Love Freebie)
- Recent Book Hangovers
- Characters I’d Follow On Social Media
Adeline’s Aria by Laynie Bynum
I had read this book back in January, and from the cover alone, I wanted to read it! Then I read the synopsis and was like, yep, have to read it because it’s about a normal girl dating this super hot British singer/actor. After I finished it, I was wanting mor e(and luckily there’s a sequel coming out). It wasn’t the type of hangover that left you in a reading slump but the kind that propelled you to want to read more about the characters or to find a book will similar vibes
As She Fades by Abbi Glines
I’ve read my fair share of books by Abbi and none of her books left me feeling so many things at the end. I had the classic symptoms of a book hangover of that empty feeling of knowing it’s over to wanting to read it again even though I just finished it to lookin guy other reviews to see if people loved it as much as I did. There’s something about a story that takes place in a small town in the south that makes me instantly love it (maybe because it’s what I know the best), then add a swoon worthy country boy who has a backstory and an unlikely romance and it equals a bad hangover. Plus I cried the entire 2nd half of the book… so I highly recommend it!
Feather by Olivia Wildenstein
This book is a fun take on Romeo and Juliette with the addition of angels who save people to get their wings. Leigh and Jarod makes the other see the world differently and want to experience life in ways that they haven’t before. At a certain point while reading this book, I forgot that it’s a retelling of Romeo and Juliette and the ending of it hit me so hard! Despite the fate that Leigh and Jarod faced, I still loved it maybe it’s because they went together or they didn’t let the world dictate how they lived their lives.
Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Ok. So this is a major throwback to when I was in the 8th grade. Divergent… loved it. Insurgent… it was good but kind of long. Allegiant…WHY. To this day I can’t even think about this book without getting mad that Veronica would do this and Sad that Tris wasn’t given a better hand of cards. Yes, I’m all for forgiveness, but you know that Caleb did wrong to all of them and got of way to easy. After I had read this book it was just like a blanket of thick fog had settle over and it was so hard to want to pick up another book because what if I got hurt again.
The Supervillain and Me by Danielle Banas
I loved this book and feel like there really needs to be a sequel. I haven’t read many books where there are actual heroes and villains that are like those in comics, so I loved this story. Then there’s the romance and the nerdy guy and the feels! And, we finally get a normal main character who isn’t a person who discovers hidden powers in a family of know heroes.
First Love by James Patterson and Emily Raymond
Don’t come after me with pitch forks and fire, but I like this book a lot better than The Fault In Our Stars. The love in this story has a depth the Hazel and Augustus didn’t convey to me. I don’t know if it’s because TFIOS was one of the first books I had read where I had seen one of the MC die and it affects me so deeply that I didn’t like the book, or maybe the vibes in First Love is a lot more light hearted and inviting!
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Can I ever make it through a list that doesn’t involve Will? Y’all the epilogue of this book absolutely KILLED me (no pun intended). I cried so much that day that my eyes were puffy for hours after. I couldn’t believe that we had to see that! Throughout TID, I had a lot of lot of feelings (good and bad because I had read TMI first), but by the end of it, I had come to love this set of characters and their story.
Of Neptune by Anna Banks
This is the last book of The Syrena Legacy, and I was ready to say goodbye this is a series about merpeople and it was so magical being underwater with the sea life and such. I feel like this book was rushed and had an odd turn but it was the end of an era and the author has closed the door of this series.
What are some books that gave you a hangover? Let me know below!
Happy reading until next time,
