Book hangovers are the worst! What do I do? :(Book hangovers are the worst!! What do I do?? 🙁 Madison #questionnaire
Take two aspirin and select your next read. ?
@Karen but I can’t I want to read the other book again.
Read more of course!
@CeCe or the exact same book because I’m weak..
Madison Woodard I’ve done that many times, re-read the same book because I couldn’t let it go, and it helps ☺️ that’s the magic of books, you don’t really have to let them go if you are not ready. With most things in life you don’t have that choice, with books you do.
@Isabel that’s very true I love that!
Take a day or two off and watch some Netflix or read an old favorite.
@Kayla I still want to go back to my old book though..
I totally feel you. Two weeks ago I read the entire Twilight series, but I’m not ready to be done with it yet so I’m listening to the Twilight audio book at night and reading other physical books during the day
@Kayla yeahhh this book trilogy was amazing I read it in a week..
What was it?
@Kayla The Sumner I Turned Pretty by.Jenny Han.
I’ll have to look into it
@Kayla it’s really good but prepare to cry.
What’s a book hangover? Remorse over finishing a book?
Whitney Wheeler yes a very specific book and you want to read it again or inability to start a new book because you are stuck in the old book’s world.
Nah. It’s when you finish a really good book and you have a hard time moving on to a new book and leaving the world you enjoyed so much. It’s all you think about and you almost feel physically Ill (like a hangover) trying to move on with your life.
Omg I do have those moments! Heartbreaking!
reread a favorite or try listening to an audiobook or just have a break for a few days to get over a hangover ^^
@Heleen I will probably re-read the book I just read that I can’t get over.
ooh Idk if that’s a good idea, might worsen the hangover… ;s ^^ or maybe watch booktube and get some recs or tips from there ?? :p always helps me
@Heleen that IS true and it isn’t like I don’t have other books to read but it might get me over it.
I sometimes make like a tbr jar, just put all your tbr books on seperate pieces of paper, and pull one out without looking and that one you have to read, no excuses :p very satisfying when you finish it
@Heleen I still need some romance in the book though because that’s what the other one was but that is a good idea .
Step 1: Accept that it’s over.
Step 2: Clear your mind and try not to think about it.
Step 3: Lie awake in bed thinking about it. ?
@Chris can’t I just read it again?? ?
Or that. Nothing wrong with jumping right back in!
@Chris that’s very true!
When I read a really awesome book sometimes I just reread it as soon as I finish it.
I take a few days off from reading and watch some t.v.
I am in one now. Read an awesome 3 book series and now I’m day dreaming about it. Trying to watch some movies to get over it? but I am still thinking about it. Sounds like a breakup, doesn’t it!! ?
Hair of the dog, man. Gotta read another book lol
