Top Ten Tuesday: The last ten books that gave me a book hangover

top ten tuesday(2)

Happy Tuesday! As per usual, I forgot it was Tuesday, so this is goin’ up a tad late in the day.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by ThatArtsyReaderGirl!

In descending chronological order, these are the most recently read books that gave me a hangover:

Assassin’s Fate and Fool’s Quest by Robin Hobb – All her books give me book hangovers, let’s be real here.

The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang – I remember reading basically only manga for a while after this one.

The Monster Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson – This was one of my favorite books of last year and it left me reeling!

Twelve Kings in Sharakhai by Bradley P. Beaulieu – This one unfortunately was a slump for a bad reason. I didn’t particularly care for this book. It took me ages to read and then after I wasn’t really in the mood to read anything.

Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James – Same reason as above. This was a negative hangover.

The Gray House by Mariam Petrosyan – Again, a negative hangover. This was actually a DNF, as well.

A River in Darkness by Masaji Ishikawa – This book was just heavy. After I finished it I was emotionally compromised.

Fool’s Fate by Robin Hobb – Robin Hobb, duh.

King’s Rising by C. S. Pacat – This entire trilogy gave me a hangover, a really good one. This series had me stuck on it for weeks after I finished it.

And that’s it! Happy reading!

    1. It was amaaaaaazing! But definitely check out the first book in the series first if you decide to pick it up: The Traitor Baru Cormorant.


  1. All of these are on my TBR, and I’m a little ashamed to say I haven’t read any of them yet. xD Shame that you didn’t like Black Leopard, Red Wolf. I’ve definitely seen very polarized reviews of it, which is why I haven’t picked it up yet. I really need to get to The Poppy War soon, though! It sounds brilliant.

    Here’s my TTT post.


  2. Completely agree about Poppy War and the Captive Prince trilogy… CP particularly had me rereading it all over again because I just couldn’t think of anything else πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Nice list !!!

  3. Lol at all the Robin Hobb books. I think book hangover is the topic for Top 5 Tuesday this week and I was thinking that I’d have to list only Hobb’s books.
