Book Hangover

bkhang11Hello all! So I’m suffering from a bit of a book hangover. I saw this picture —————————————————————————–>  and just thought that term was just so perfect. I’ve also heard it referred to as the mourning period described in a lovely YouTube video by polandbananasBOOKS which I think I have mentioned before. You can go watch that HERE if you want more information as to what a book hangover is like because that’s not what I’m going to talk about. So after Angelfall I tried reading another book and I got maybe 15 pages in before I stopped. Went and got another book, got a little bit farther in it but not by much. So I did what I always do when I am book hungover. I re-read books that I already have loved. Keeping with Christine’s metaphor, these relationships I can rely on to make me feel better. I re-read City of Glass, Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince (A friend of mine has Clockwork Princess, NOT the same friend who ruined my old copy of Clockwork Prince. This friend treats books like I do so I trust her.) and I also re-read a book called Reincarnation by Suzanne Weyn that I actually talked about in the 30 Day book challenge some number of days ago. So, anyway, book hangovers. If you are experiencing one I feel you. Give it time to heal and mean while go back to one old relationships that you can rely on. If you need a re-bound book I recommend a fluffy, contemporary novel. Those tend to be a good cure.

  1. I know exactly how you feel, books always do this to me. In fact I’m a little worried that once I finish the Chronicles of Narnia I won’t be able to read anything without talking animals and evil witches in it for a while! 🙂
