20 Books That Gave Me a Book Hangover

We’ve all been in this spot before: read an amazing book, finish it, and then not know what to do with yourself. I don’t know who came up with the term book hangover, but it really is accurate. I find it’s especially accurate if applied to waiting a year for the sequelย or if there’s a cliffhanger and the next book isn’t immediately accessible.

Anyway, hi guys! I’ve been wanting to do a post like this for a while, but haven’t because I didn’t want to spoil any books on my list. To avoid that, I’ll be making a list but not providing explanation. In place of that, this post will be divided into three parts: waiting for the sequel, not owning the next book, and the end of a series. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m sure I have more books that gave me a book hangover, but these are just the ones that came to mind first. If you’d like a part two, let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
  • A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

not owning the next book

What books have givenย you a book hangover? What was the most recent book to give you one? Are any of yours on my list? I’d love to know! Tell me in the comments! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m off to continue reading Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld and try to find room on my bookshelf for all the books I got yesterday. ๐Ÿ˜› I hope you all have a fabulous day/night! โค

Until next time…

  1. UGH, books like these just make me wonder. I don’t like being “nowhere” right after I finish reading a book. It’s just so weird, because in that time period I can’t really find a good book that will hook me into it.

    1. I agree! If I’ve just finished a really amazing book, it’s hard for me to give another book proper time and appreciation. And while I wouldn’t say I’m nowhere when I finish, I definitely think about that book for days after! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Ah, I absolutely love and can relate to this post! So many of these gave me book hangovers (and almost made me fall into reading slumps). Shadow Kiss and The Clockwork Princess were the worst; and I’m still feeling the feels from ACoMaF as you know. Lastly, I’m currently reading A Conjuring of Light (I don’t want it to end!) and I’m already anticipating the worst hangover from the conclusion of that epic trilogy.

    1. I’m glad! Book hangovers are amazing and horrible, in my opinion, because they show a book is epic but also leave you unsure what to do with your life. ๐Ÿ˜… So many of Richelle Mead’s and Cassandra Clare’s books have that effect on me, and I think every single one of Sarah’s has. They’re just so good! ๐Ÿ˜ ACOL is too, but also just full of all the feels. Prepare yourself! I hope you enjoy it! ๐Ÿ˜Š
