Top Ten Tuesday: Book Hangovers

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish back in June 2010. It is currently hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and, as is stated on the blog, it was “born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.”

Tuesday has rolled around again and it’s time for another TTT. This week’s theme is book hangovers. As in your top ten books that left you so wrapped up in the world and the characters that it took you awhile to pick up anything else to read. Or, if you did pick up another book, you just couldn’t get into it.

I’ll be honest, this doesn’t happen to me as much as I would like it to! I tend to roll right along after finishing a book, even if I absolutely loved it. As I was going through my recent reads, though, I did find ten books that had this impact on me in varying degrees. After looking at the list, I think the common theme is that they were all beautifully descriptive and had interesting concepts in addition to characters I instantly loved.
