Top Ten Tuesday: The Last Ten Books That Gave Me a Book Hangover

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is:

The Last Ten Books That Gave Me a Book Hangover

Funny thing… I submitted this topic when I was in a book hangover. Now, I can’t remember which book it was. LOL. All of these are books that gave me that good kind of hangover.

1. Landon & Shay: Part 2
Author: Brittainy C. Cherry

Brittainy C. Cherry always leaves me with a book hangover. It’s the rawness of her stories. I’m just never ready to let go.

2. The How & the Why
Author: Cynthia Hand

I was emotionally exhausted after this book. It was so good.

3. Enemies
Author: Tijan

Tijan’s books are like a good cookie. I’m just never ready to be finished.

4. When We Left Cuba
Author: Chanel Cleeton

I was lucky to be able to binge read When We Left Cuba right after Next Year in Havana. When I was done, I just wanted more. The next book isn’t out until this spring. 🙁

5. The Kingmaker
Author: Kennedy Ryan

Two words: massive cliffhanger

6. The Simple Wild
Author: K.A. Tucker

It was just so good!

7. All the Ugly and Wonderful Things
Author: Bryn Greenwood

Disturbing, yet so well written.

8. The Reckless Oath We Made
Author:Bryn Greenwood

Greenwood really just challenges my beliefs and it’s exhausting in a good way.

9. Collared
Author: Nicole Williams

At first glance at the cover and title, some might think this is a book about BDSM. It’s not at all. It’s actually a story about a girl who was kidnapped and then found years later. It’s really emotional.

10. Cowboy Villain Damsel Duel
Author: Ginger Scott

This one messed with my mind and left me awed.

    1. It is SO good! I highly recommend it and the book that comes before it, Next Year in Havana. Both were some of my top reads from last year.

    1. I highly recommend The Simple Wild.
      Did you ever read Erin Watt’s Royals series? Enemies has that kind of vibe going.

  1. I loved The Simple Wild as well!

    And yes, I agree – All the Ugly and Wonderful Things made me so uncomfortable, but it’s engrossing all the same.

  2. I love a good book hangover even if they make it hard to move on to the next book. 🙂 The Simple Wild and Reckless Oath book look promising to me.

    1. Both are great reads. I can see you appreciating Reckless Oath. It’s not a thriller, but it’s dark.

  3. I am still thinking about The Simple Wild AND SO EXCITED THE SEQUEL IS ON MY KINDLE AT THIS MOMENT! So, yeah, I would put that on my list. I didn’t read that Brittany Cherry book, but The Air He Breathes most definitely left me hungover

    1. I still need to download it. I actually think I requested my library purchase the ebook. I should check on that!
      If you liked that Brittainy Cherry book, I highly recommend this one!

  4. That’s so cool this is your topic! I wish I would’ve looked into it this week now. Great list! I’ve been reading mostly crappy books lately, but I still find kind of hungover from Anti-Stepbrother by Tijan! I enjoyed that one so much more than I ever thought I would (especially based on the title).

    1. Thanks! 🙂
      Anti-Stepbrother is a surprise because of the title. I’m so glad you liked it! I feel you. I think I read too many romances in a row. I couldn’t get into anything and ended up DNFing a few books. I ended up starting this romance anthology and the short stories got me back into things. Hmm…maybe a funny romance would help. Something to change up your mood?

  5. Book hangovers are wonderful things, but you come out the other side in a bit of a haze that makes it easy to forget … well, everything. xD I haven’t read All the Ugly and Wonderful Things yet, but I’ve been wanting to! Glad to see it left such an impression on you.

  6. I still need to read a book by Cynthia Hand! I keep hearing great things and if The How and the Why affected you that much it should really be on my TBR. Great list! 🙂

  7. UGH! I have not gotten to a single one of these yet! How sad!! I’ll probably move on to the Landon & Shay series after I finish her Elements series. I only have The Gravity Between Us to finish. And I really want to get to The Simple Wild soon.

  8. The Simple Wild made such a lasting impression on me. I read it the week after my father died (not knowing what would happen in the book, obviously). I was already emotionally raw and that book at that particular time really made an impact. Both of Bryn Greenwood’s books packed a punch but it was All the Ugly and Wonderful Things that had me thinking and Wavy and Kellan and mulling it all over long after I finished the book.

  9. Enemies keeps popping up on my recommend so I feel like I should read it… Also keep hearing great things about All the Wonderful and Ugly Things and I love a book with a dark side so I probs should get on w reading both of those lol. Great post!
