Top Ten Tuesday: Book Hangover Cures (60)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
In no particular order.

This Week's Theme:
Top Ten Book Hangover Cures

Is there a care in the world that can't be solved by overindulging in your favorite snack?

I tend to go on Netflix marathons when I'm in the middle of a book hangover and can't get myself to start a new book. On the other side, I don't really watch Netflix when I'm in the middle of a good book

 Re-read a book
I tend to re-read books I love to get myself out of my reading funk.

Obsess over the sequel
If the sequel is already out, I get my hands on that sucker as soon as possible. If it is not out, you can bet I have looked up everything I can about it, including teasers, excerpts, release date, and preordering it.

If you're like me, a good book keeps me up way too late, so sleep is one of the first things on my agenda. Also, when you're asleep, you aren't thinking about how sad you are that you finished that amazing book.

Obsess over the author
I look up every single book the author has written and scour their blog and social media for any extra tidbits about the book that supplement every fan theory I have

Sometimes a good cry is needed to mourn the loss of the book that has been your bestie for the past couple of days (let's be real though, it's only been 8 hours because you started the book this morning)

Reread my fave parts of the book that gave me the book hangover
This just helps to remind me why I loved the book and needed it in my life. It also helps you pick up on little details and foreshadowing to stuff that happens later

 Tell Somebody the Whole Plot to the Book
Let's be real, the person you're talking to probably doesn't give a shit about the book you've just finished nor do they understand the hell you are in, but you still continue to tell that person the plot to every single book you love. And then you tell them they have to read it and the inevitably respond with "Why would I when you just told me what happens?" To which you lecture them on the amazingness of reading and how your synopsis doesn't live up to how good the book is.

                                                                       Scream                      I have definitely screeched a little at the end of a book. Or sat there re reading the ending chanting "oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh." And then somebody asks what's wrong and you yell at them to leave you alone

New Releases: August 28

It's been three years since the Virgil County High School Massacre. Three years since my best friend, Sarah, was killed in a bathroom stall during the mass shooting. Everyone knows Sarah's story--that she died proclaiming her faith. 

But it's not true. 

I know because I was with her when she died. I didn't say anything then, and people got hurt because of it. Now Sarah's parents are publishing a book about her, so this might be my last chance to set the record straight . . . but I'm not the only survivor with a story to tell about what did--and didn't--happen that day. 

Except Sarah's martyrdom is important to a lot of people, people who don't take kindly to what I'm trying to do. And the more I learn, the less certain I am about what's right. I don't know what will be worse: the guilt of staying silent or the consequences of speaking up . . .
