It’s happened to all of us – we finish a great book and are left with an intense book hangover. We Were Liars is one such book, leaving readers reeling and desperate for more information after the last page is turned.

If you’re like me and are struggling through your day-to-day because of your major book hangover, don’t worry – there’s hope. In the form of sequels.

Okay, I have to admit it. I had a major book hangover after reading We Were Liars. The ending was so messed up and intense that I needed some time to process it all. It’s been a few weeks now and I think I’m ready to talk about it. If you haven’t read the book yet, don’t read this post because there are spoilers ahead! Just trust me when I say that you need to read this book – it’s amazing. But be prepared for a wild ride.
We Were Liars
by E. Lockhart
A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.

I never thought I could get a book hangover. I mean, it’s just a book, right?
I just finished a young adult novel that was so good, it gave me a major book hangover. I couldn’t put the book down, and when I finally reached the last page, I was both relief and disappointed. I was relieved because I had been dying to find out how the story would end, but I was also disappointed because I didn’t want the story to end. The book was one of those rare young adult novels that managed to keep me fully engaged from beginning to end. And the twist ending? I’m still trying to process the twist ending and all of the feelings that come with it. It was one of those books with a twist ending that you never see coming. I’ve been recommending the book to everyone I know, and I’m already looking forward to reading it again. It was so good that it left me with a major book hangover. If you’re looking for a ya fiction novel that will keep you entertained from start to finish, I highly recommend this one. Just be warned: you might have to explain to people that you are a bookworm and not a zombie. I was a total mess after finishing it. All I wanted to do was curl up in bed and stare at the wall. If you’ve ever experienced a book hangover, you know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s that feeling where you just can’t bring yourself to read anything else because nothing could possibly compare to the perfection that is the book you just read.
I don’t know what it is about young adult fiction, but it always seems to be so much more intense than anything else I read. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started a book and then had to put it down because the tension was just too much for me to handle. It’s like the authors of these books know exactly how to keep their readers on the edge of their seats, and they’re not afraid to go there. I think that’s why I always end up with a bit of a book hangover after reading one of these books. They’re just so well written and so intense that it’s hard to forget about them once I’m done. The story was so intense and well-written that I couldn’t put it down. I was up all night reading it, and when I finally finished, I had a massive book hangover. It’s a young adult novel, but it’s definitely not for kids. The characters are so well-developed and the plot is so twisty and thrilling. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good book to get lost in. Just be warned: you might not be able to put it down either!
I devoured the book in just two days, and now I find myself struggling to move on. I was so invested in the lives of the characters that I read the entire book in just two days. Now that it’s over, I feel like I’ve lost a part of myself. I keep reaching for the book, wanting to return to that world, but it’s just not there anymore. I know I need to find something else to read, but nothing else can compare to that book. The characters are still so vivid in my mind, and I can’t help but wonder what they’re doing now that the story is over. I know I need to find something else to occupy my time, but it’s hard to let go of something that was such a big part of my life for those two short days. Ah well, I suppose I’ll just have to start reading the sequel…Or actually prequel. That’s coming out this summer.
I don’t know what I was expecting when I picked up the young adult fiction novel, but it certainly wasn’t that. The twists and turns kept me guessing until the very end, and the ending was such a shocker that I’m still trying to process it. I’ve heard people say that they get a “book hangover” after reading something particularly good, and I think that’s what this is. I’m pretty sure I’m in a state of shock, and I’m not quite sure how to move on from this book. If you’re looking for a ya fiction novel that will keep you guessing until the very end, then I would highly recommend this one. But be warned, the ending will leave you with a serious case of book hangover and a lot of unanswered questions. But despite all that, I’m still glad I read it. It’s rare to find a ya book these days that can really keep you guessing until the very end. So even though I’m still trying to wrap my head around the ending, I’m ultimately glad I read it.
I don’t know about you, but I always get a little bit sad when I finish an amazing book. It’s like saying goodbye to a good friend-you know you’re going to miss them, but you’re also excited for the new adventures that lie ahead. This was definitely the case with We Were Liars. I was so captivated by the story and the characters that I didn’t want it to end. And now that it’s over, I’m feeling a bit of a book hangover. If you’re not familiar with the term, a book hangover is what happens when you finish an incredible book and you’re left feeling a little bit lost and confused about what to do next. Don’t worry, it’s totally normal.
If you’re looking for a young adult mystery novel that will leave you with a serious book hangover, then I recommend We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. The novel follows a group of wealthy teenagers who spend their summers on a private island, and it’s full of twists and turns that I guarantee you won’t see coming. The ending is particularly shocking, and I still can’t believe how cleverly the story was crafted. If you’re in the mood for a fast-paced read with an unpredictable plot, then I highly recommend picking up We Were Liars. Just be warned – you might not be able to put it down!
So if you’re looking for a good summer read, I highly recommend We Were Liars. It’s a fast-paced mystery novel with an unexpected twist that will leave you reeling. I stayed up all night reading it, and I am still thinking about it weeks later. Have you read it? What did you think? Let me know in the comments.

A book hangover, that is funny and yet it is a strangely accurate thing. I also love the name of your blog, The Glorious Train Wreck Mom (I can totally relate). Thanks for sharing this post.
