Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 books that caused a major hangover

Top 5 Tuesday

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. It’s a weekly meme where you pick your top 5 books for a given topic.

This week’s topic is Top 5 books that caused a major hangover

A book hangover can be caused for many reasons. More often than not I end up not being able to pick up another book due to disappointment more often than a book just being amazing. Or at least that is how it has worked for me in the last year or so.

A Sorrow Fierce and Falling by Jessica Cluess

I loved the first two books in this series so much and then when I picked up this book right after finishing the second one I no longer recognized the characters. I felt like they had complete personality changes just to fit where they needed to be to finish the series. It may not have been so jarring if I had not read the books back to back but I felt that everything I loved about the main character was stripped from her.

Chroma Crossing Chronicles: Blood Moon by S. Yurvati

There were some scenes in this book that I can never unread and I am still disturbed by them today.

Spectacle by Jodie Lynn Zdrok 

I think I may have expected too much from this book. It was not bad I think I just wanted more than it had to give.

The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women by Kate Moore

This story is just so heartbreaking.  I was so blown away by their story and I could not believe that they were never mentioned when I was in school.  Their story should be taught. They should not be forgotten.  

Song For A Lost Kingdom by Steve Moretti 

This book bothered me on a more personal level.  This story plays on the stereotype that you have to be troubled (drugs and so on) to be a great musician. I have a daughter that plays multiple instruments and has shown some interest in composing so I found this to be harmful.  You don’t have to be troubled to be a successful artist.

  1. At first I was surprised that you didn’t have any Gail Carriger books on there, but then I went back and read your first paragraph where you said your book hangovers are caused more by disappointment, so now I’m glad there aren’t any of her books haha
