This week’s topic is The Last Ten Books That Gave Me a Book Hangover. If a book hangover is reading a book so brilliant nothing that follows can live up to it, then I can say I’ve been lucky enough never to experience one. Or perhaps it’s just that I adopt ‘the hair of the dog’ approach and pick up the next book.
However, here are some books with titles that might give you a real hangover…especially if taken one after the other! Links from the book titles will take you to the book description on Goodreads.
