Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme brought to you by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish (the button also belongs to them). This week’s theme is Top Ten Books to Read in a Day.
It is always so cool when you find a book that is SO awesome you tear through it in a day. I can’t promise that I actually read the following books in a day, but I can tell you that I definitely wanted to.
The Shining by Stephen King – I am a big wimp when it comes to scary stories, so even though this is not a small book I am pretty sure I refused to put it down until the scariness was over.
Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson – I just needed to know what happened. Now.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – I know I’m not the only one who couldn’t put this one down.
Divergent by Veronica Roth – I read this in close to one day. Partly because I was stuck on an airplane. Mostly because it was so awesome I felt neither drowsy nor nauseated on said airplane.
Candor by Pam Bachorz – Circumstance allowed me to read this in one day, but it was short and catchy enough to read quickly.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling – What top ten list doesn’t have Harry Potter on it? But really, totally a one-dayer.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – I’d probably read any John Green book in a day if I didn’t have adult responsibilities in my way.
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson – This is a teeny tiny book. Also, it is awesome. If you have never read Shirley Jackson, you are missing out.
In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner – I love Jennifer Weiner and this was a book I picked up when I was working at a summer camp. It was SO hard to put it down and actually work!
The Giver by Lois Lowry – Another short, easy read. If you want to round out your YA dystopia reading, you should start here.
