A Bookworm’s Guide to a Book Hangover

A Bookworm's Guide to a Book Hangover

Hi guys!!! Today I decided to do a type of post I haven’t done for quite a while. Being a bookworm we all know that sometimes we read an amazing book, so amazing that you’ll end up not wanting to read other books. Because of that today’s post is A Bookworm’s Guide to a Book Hangover. This is mainly how I react when I read a great book and I’m pretty sure that a lot of you might agree with some of these things.

Sometimes you read the most amazing book you have read in quite sometime

You feel like you belong to that book with that amazing characters

But then the book ends you end up like

You can stop thinking about how amazing the book and the characters are

You try to read a new book but you still can’t stop thinking about that other book

You try yet another book but still nothing

This is the point you feel like crying because for you no other book will be as amazing as this one

You try to talk with someone else about the book so you can feel better

After talking about it you end up searching for some fan art and fan fiction  so you don’t miss the characters as much as you already do

You finally decide to re-read a book you know you’ll love

The book is so amazing that it takes you out from your book hangover

This is until you read another book that makes you feel this way. When this happens repeat all the previous steps

So this is my Bookworm’s Guide to a Book Hangover. What about you?? Do you do any of these things? What other things do you normally do during a book hangover??

  1. This was literally me a while back, I can’t even remember the name of the book I read now (oops how good was it then!? lol jokes, it was brilliant) and I literally couldn’t stop thinking about it for AGES!! Loving the PLL, Aria meme in there 🙂

  2. I totally feel you on these, haha! When I’m in a book hangover, I just replay my favorite scenes over and over in my head for a while, but so as to not stay in the hangover for a long period of time, I try to start a new book almost immediately. I know that I can linger in a book hangover for a long time, but I don’t want that to affect my reading, so I just do my best to move on. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

  3. This is so accurate, it hurts. I’m currently in the “You try to read a new book but you still can’t stop thinking about that other book” stage. The Raven Boys was entirely too good to me that I almost regret reading considering everything else looks so dull to me now.

      • Maybe I’ll cautiously throw myself into the fan art phase because it will be a while until I get the second book in the series. Coincidentally, this book hangover is cutting into me reading Scarlet ;-;

      • Fan art is an amzing way to gt over a book hangover 😛
        Scarlet it’s a great book. It’s not the best one because for me each book released is better than the preious one but it’s pretty good


  4. Haha! This post spoke quite true to the process of me going through a book hangover, except with more moping around and missing everything within the book that got me hungover!
    Loved this, and I loved all the GIFs! They were on point. 😊

  5. THIS WAS ME just a few days ago after reading this book called All the Light We Cannot See. I just wanted to do nothing but think about the characters and talk about the characters and tell everyone to read the book. Thank goodness there are books like Harry Potter that I can reread and rely on 🙂

  8. You understand me so well! i was just looking for more books to read and obsess over because I just finished a book at the library this morning and was already looking for the sequel and I have this impulsive feeling to go buy the next book. Although I just bought two this past weekend….so I’ll see (although there’s a 90% chance I’ll buy it). Your post was awesome and I can’t wait to see any others that you have posted.
