Top 5 Tuesday #28: Book Hangover

This week’s topic:

Top 5 books that caused a major hangover

When putting this list together, I realized that the types of books that tend to give me a hangover are those with either a really engrossing story or world or one with really good writing. After reading such books, I tend to take FOREVER to write the review or move on to another book either because I’m intimidated by all the thoughts and feelings I have about the story or because I want to keep the memory of the story as current as possible before moving on to something else.

I have here 7 books that gave me a book hangover. I just selected a few and stopped when I had to go do something else. That’s how I ended up with 7.

Top 5 books that exceeded my expectations

I learned so much from this book and liked the illustrations that accompanied the many facts. It’d say it’s geared toward teens and adults, but you could read it to kids and will most likely need to explain some stuff to them. I highly recommend it. Check out my review to see some of the illustrations.
