Top Ten Books to Read in a Day
Hosted by the Broke and the Bookish
This week on the Broke and the Bookish’s weekly meme it’s a Rewind, meaning we get to pick whatever topic we missed in the past and liked the most to blog about. I thought it would be fun to do Top Ten Books to Read in a Day because sometimes you just don’t have the time to get into a book that’s going to take time to think and ponder heavily about. So this is my list of ultra fast books to read:
These are my new favorites!! I am in love with every single character (but I would marry Wolf if given the opportunity). I read these books way too fast (one day as you can obviously tell by the post’s title). They are such fun re-imaginings of classic fairy tales. See review of Cinder and Scarlet. Go check them out!
So addicting. Once this book is started, you’re not going to want to put it down, talk to others, eat, etc. See full review here.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
I love, love, love this series. And every time I start one of the books, I know I won’t be getting any sleep until it’s finished. Action, romance, and tons of paranormal creatures and I can never figure out how these stories will end!
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling
I remember finishing this Potter book in particular in just one day. I had to hide under the covers and use a flashlight so my parents thought I was sleeping. I just had to find out who Sirius Black was!
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
I’m only picking the first one in the series because I don’t recall having a favorite in this series. All of Riordan’s junior fictions are books I’ve had to finish in a day. They are so amazing and I love getting kids to read them!
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
This was a book my grandma had picked out before she passed away, but I didn’t get around to reading it for a few years. The day I did start it though, I stayed up all night until it was finished. It is a magical masterpiece of a fairy tale that I recommend to oodles of girls who don’t know what to read.
I did NOT want to read this book. I was horrified by kids killing kids, but as a librarian I figured everyone would be asking about it so I read it…in one sitting. I’m still not quite sure I enjoyed it because of the brutality, but it was something that couldn’t be put down.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Another book I was on the fence about reading, but it sucked me in all the same. I know I enjoyed reading this one, so as a dystopian novel I put it above the Hunger Games and recommend it to people looking for something along those lines.
Ascend by Amanda Hocking
This is the last book in the Trylle trilogy (trilogy with a unique take on trolls and changelings with a setting in MN!) by Amanda Hocking and I enjoyed it the most out of all three of the novels. I tore through this one to see how everything would end…and I’ll admit, I was quite shocked, but in a good way.
What are some books you have had to read in one day??
