How to get over a book hangover

Hello book Lovers!
This post is going to be about how to get over the worst feeling in the world, the feeling that makes you feel empty and depressed, this feeling is called.. BOOK HANGOVER! For all of you who don't know what I'm talking about, a book hangover doesn't mean that you drank too much alcohol while reading so when you wake up you have a hangover. A book hangover is when you have just finished a book, the book that you finished was great.... But after this amazing book, you can't start a new book, you just don't feel like reading anymore. This usully happens when you completely forget to think about what you were going to read next. So you are there, sitting on the side of your bed, looking at the wall, looking at the bookshelf and you start wondering what you are going to do with your life now that you don't feel like reading. Are going to just watch the vampire diaries or any other TV show for the rest of your time alive? Are ever going to read again? Is this it? Are you done with reading all the amazing book that are out there?

So, I'm now going to tell you how to avoid that,or if you have already been caught, these are some ways to get over it... i hope al least one works, they all halped me.

1.  Go to your public library or book shop. What I'm trying to say is that, what you have to do is surround yourself with books. Sometimes, just having them around you, make you feel "connected" to them in some kind of way. Just reading the titles of the books, reading the authors´name, small things like that really can help. Because, sometimes,while you are walking around you suddenly see an amazing front cover, then you walk toward it, almost as if it was pulling you towards it. Then, you pick thebook up, and that´s it, you turn the first page and you are pulled back into the amazing world of reading.

2. If that doesnt work with you, something else thing you can do is find a book that is really cheesy, short  and nice and with romance if you like that kind of stuff. They are really great when it comes to getting you back into reading. Normally it´s because they are easy to read, sometimes you can relate to the story, or you fall inlove with the boy in the book and you need to keep reading to find out what happens to him in the end... for example: Anna and the french kiss, Lola and the boy next door and Isla and the happily ever after.

3. That doesn´t work for you. I get it, i´m not that kind of girl who likes reading  either, and if you are a boy, I get why option 2 wouldn´t work with you either.  So, the 3rd thing you can do is find a short book from your book list that you have always wanted to read but never had a chance to actually do it; if you have a hard copy of it, put on the front of your bookshelf, your bedside table, anywhere that you will be able to look at it often. If you dont have a copy of the book, screenshot the front cover and set it as your backround photo. the more you look and see the book you want to read, the more you will want to read it, until one day, you will finally turn the first page!

I hope this helps, if you know any other ways to get over a book hangover, please comment them below!
