#TopTenTuesday Book Hangovers

Top Ten Tuesday newTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.

The rules are simple:

Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post. Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists. Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

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.
