Top Ten Books To Read In One Day
I had to think long and hard about this one … there are so many books that I could read in one day, especially in the Canadian winter where there’s nothing else to do during the day but stare out the window and long for summer, that I had to think of my absolute favourites to recommend — these are all books that I’ve read so far this year.
Without further ado, here they are!
I started reading this book after dinner one night and had to stay up and read the whole thing. I just couldn’t put it down, I loved it that much.
2. The Wedding Dress, by Rachel Hauck
I love a good chick-lit book and this one was perfect. Yeah, it was Christian literature, but it wasn’t the most prominent thing, which was nice. It was just such a nice book!
3. Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, by Morgan Matson
If you don’t count the fact that I took about 3 hours out of reading this book to make the playlists, it definitely counts as a read-in-one-sitting kind of book. I loved this book and you should, too!
I looooved this book! I’m such a closet traveler that it was nice to live vicariously through daredevil travellers who would do things that I could only dream of doing.
5. Chopsticks, by Jessica Anthony
I think this one caters more to the music crowd, but the book is just so light on actual words that it’s easy to breeze through in an hour. A little longer if you want to look at all the details in the pictures. And when you want to read it again since it’s really that good.
6. Damn You, Autocorrect!, by Jillian Madison
Not a fiction book, but something hilarious that anyone with a smart phone should read. I laughed so hard I was crying … for the entire book. I’m sure everyone has had at least one funny autocorrect moment, so it’s easy to find humor in this book!
7. Ditched, by Robin Mellom
It only makes sense to read this in one day, since the book takes place in one night. It’s funny, cute, and romantic. Perfect reading!
How can I not include this one? I devoured this book after thinking that it would only be so-so. Boy, was I wrong! I think the same thing about Catching Fire, but Mockingjay was one I could’ve split over a few days since it wasn’t my favourite.
9. The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1), by Rae Carson
I had no idea what to expect from this book, so I was quite surprised to realize it was awesome and one of those can’t-put-down reads. I only wish the next one would come out sooner so I could spend a day reading it!
10. The Goddess Test (Goddess Test, #1), by Aimee Carter
I loved this book, but I also love Greek mythology. Well, and Aimee Carter is just a great writer. An easy book to absorb yourself with for a day. The other great thing is that once you read this, you can read The Goddess Hunt, the novella after this book, then Goddess, Interrupted, which just came out … and then at the end of July there’s another one coming out. Perfect for all the Aimee Carter lovers!
