A book hangover is worse than a real hangover // Top 5 Tuesday


Hi, hey, hello and happy Tuesday.

I just found out my school trip to Italy next week has been cancelled due to the North of Italy being on lockdown and quarantine due to the Coronavirus. Yay.😂 And here I thought the most I’d have to worry about was rooming with the popular mean girls.

I just find it funny that the one time I try something outside of my comfort zone that yeah I was super nervous about but also really excited for gets cancelled because of the country is under quarantine.

Moving on from that though, let’s talk about this weeks Top 5 Tuesday topic: Books that gave me a book hangover. I’d really like to get drunk enough to have a hangover right now but I’m not 18 and my parents are both out of the country so they can’t buy me any. Woop.

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shannah @ Bionic Book Worm



I class a “Book Hangover” as a book that I can not stop thinking about and so here are four of my most recent.

Red White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston- I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, this book is a masterpiece and I can genuinely say I was addicted to it; the writing, the dialogue, the humour, I drank it all up like I was a blue WKD and I genuinely felt like a rush of euphoria after finishing it. It was like a haze that didn’t go away for a while.

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo- The book hangover for this stemmed from the plot. I loved reading all about these secrete societies and by the time I was finished I was dying for more.

These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling- I loved the witches and the magical elements the most in this book aswell as the relationship dynamics of the main character Hannah with her ex-girlfriend and her new crush and overall I just couldnt stop thinking about the characters.

The Kings Men by Nora Sakovic– I re-read this series every year and every year I have to marathon all three books because I’m physically unable to read anything else when I get going. I fall into a hole with this series and the only way out is to read them all again and again.

So those are some pretty recent reads that caused a book hangover. Thank you so much for reading 🙂
