TOP TEN TUESDAY

It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic was a freebie so I chose:
Top Ten Books I Read In One Day
It’s a rare and special moment when I sit down with a book and finish it in a single day. Sometimes it’s my goal to read a lot and other times I just can’t put the book down. I wish I had more time to do this but usually life gets in the way! Anyway… I thought it was a fun topic to share with you today! It brings an interesting mix of books that aren’t necessarily lumped together under a specific genre or publication year so it felt like I was able to write a very unique post!
FAVORITE BOOKS READ IN A SINGLE DAY
Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas: DANGEROUS GIRLS, man. This is a BOOK. I had heard many great things before I started it and I was not let down in any way. I couldn’t put the book down and I didn’t want to! I read it on the plane to BEA 2014 and then thank goodness I had to wait a little bit for Alyssa’s train to get into Grand Central because I was able to finish it before we met up. I did not want to leave that ending for later! Though it did leave me baffled and maybe looking half-crazy at a table in the food court of Grand Central station.
Last Will and Testament by Dahlia Adler: After talking to Dahlia for a while, I was so excited to be able to read and review her first New Adult book! I had so much fun reading LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT and I sort of didn’t even realize I was reading it in one day until it happened. Clearly I was absorbed!
Fault Line by Christa Desir: FAULT LINE was such a powerful book. It was something that I really didn’t want to leave over the span of a few days. It shocked me, opened my eyes to things, made me feel for the characters, and I needed to get to the end before the day was over.
Wild Awake by Hilary T. Smith: WILD AWAKE was a total whirlwind. I remember reading this outside on the 4th of July while we barbecued and just hung out. I don’t think I even really took breaks that day when I was reading and sort of just got lost in this book until I finished it!
The Beginning of Everything by Robyn Schneider: Oh, this book and my feels. I sometimes forget that I finished this in one day because it really sat with me for so long but it was another book that I just couldn’t stop reading. I needed to know where it was going. I needed to know how it ended. And I just drowned in feelings and secrets and music.
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson: This was one of the first full-length books I actually sat down and read start to finish in one day (well, besides Harry Potter). I just got sucked in to this book and became so invested in the characters. I laughed, I mourned, and I cried some ugly tears alone in my apartment.
I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios: Although I wasn’t AS in love with this book as everyone else was, I still really, really enjoyed it. Enough to finish it in a day, apparently!! I’LL MEET YOU THERE was so wonderful and I couldn’t get enough of it!
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith: I actually don’t even remember finishing this one in a day but my Goodreads says it happened so it must be true. How fitting too since the book takes place in a single 24 hour time period too!
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey: Okay, I don’t like alien books. Like, really not. But the hype for THE 5TH WAVE (especially at the time when I read it) was not unwarranted. I dove in head first and didn’t want to put it down! In fact, I didn’t. I spent the entire afternoon reading it cover-to-cover!
Top Ten Clues You’re Cluelesss by Liz Czukas: I just adore Liz Czukas and her books! TOP TEN CLUES was so much fun and I managed to read it straight through! I just love her stories and her characters!
