Seize the Tuesday #13: Book Hangovers

Seize the Tuesday is a book blogger meme created by myself and the Let’s Get Lost Buddies Street Team, to share stories about how we’ve seized the Tuesday, with a special focus on the particular book we’re reading. We’ll share our posts online with the hashtag: #LetsAllGetLost
The idea is to share little ways in which you may have embraced Bree’s motto of seizing the Tuesday. To relate it to books, you can talk about what book you’re reading, and how you stole some moments from the day to enjoy reading. It doesn’t have to be about reading, but we all know that a well-read day is a day seized. The idea is not just to help spread the word on LGL, but also to remind people to live fully, even/especially if that means spending a part of your day reading.

Occasionally, you read a book and you just love it so much that you don't want it to end. Or maybe this book was a specifically emotional read. Or maybe it just wasn't for you, but you decided to finish it anyway. Whatever it was, you feel like you can't possibly read another book until you've had enough time to get over this one. 

Sometimes these hangovers last just a few days, and sometimes they take over your life for a good month *cough* Allegiant *cough cough* but no matter how many times you get yourself a book hangover, it doesn't get any better. 

I recently experienced a hangover after reading Ensnared by A.G. Howard, and I was lucky enough for it to only last about five hours, but it was there, and it still sucked just as badly. I managed to get over it though, and started a new book later that evening (No hangover from that one, thank the Lord!).

What's the hardest part about a book hangover for you?

  1. The little reminders are the hardest part for me, when I finished Clockwork Princess I kept seeing little hints for City of Heavenly Fire everywhere which mentioned characters from Clockwork Princess. So I was constantly being broken, over and over.
