These don’t happen for me much, we can say I have a pretty high book stamina. I can jump straight from one to another, even if I adore something I don’t typically get hung up on it. I have been caught before though so here are a few of those for Top 5!
Top 5 is, of course, created by Lainey at GingerReadsLainey. And as usual these are not in any specific order.
5) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
I dare you to read this without spending the next week questioning your sanity and your life choices. I dare you.
4) The Casual Vacany by J.K. Rowling
This is one of the first adult fiction books I’d read last year that made me realize I could read adult fiction and enjoy it. From there I spent quite a few days mulling around wanting more.
3) The School for Good and Evil: The Last Ever After by Soman Chainani
I think my love for the School for Good and Evil is well known if you’ve read many of my posts. As I mentioned in my review it left me in happy tears. The two days after it I remember just sitting and staring at it when I tried to to find something to read. I kept thinking ‘I could just read this again…’
2) The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson
I just finished this one last week. I was a mess. I was in my basement/library and I just
wandered around in circles for a few minutes then logged onto Facebook to shout in the direction of the two people I knew who had read it. Take a word of advice. Do NOT read this book without the third nearby. Hooooly shit.
1) Childhood’s End by Arthur C. Clarke
This was less of a hangover then a haunting. The idea behind this book and the end of humanity it presents is just bewitching. I wound up buying another one or two of his books as soon as I could. The book is short and though it takes place over several years and you don’t necessarily get attached to specific characters you really get attached to humanity and well.. you should read it.
