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!

1. Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins

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!

4. Wanderlove, by Kirsten Hubbard

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!

8. The Hunger Games (Hunger Games, #1), by Suzanne Collins

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!

What books could YOU read in one day?

  1. I’ve read a few of these- Anna, THG, Fire and Thorns, Amy & Roger – all addictive reads. But now you have me even more eager to pick up Wanderlove and Chopsticks. Thanks for the great recs!

  2. The Hunger Games and Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour were on my list, too. I totally could have included Anna & the French Kiss, but it could be on every one of my Tuesday lists so I was trying to mix it up haha! I’m dying to read Wanderlove – everyone seems to adore it. And I just saw The Wedding Dress at the bookstore the other day and wondered if it was good. I’ll have to check it out 🙂

  3. Every time one of these Top 10 lists come up, I HAVE to count how many of the books listed I’ve read. Let’s seeeeee here. 4/10. UGH. At least know I have plenty of recommendations to get to! (: (LOL, as if I didn’t before…..)

    Anna! ❤ The absolute perfect book to read in one day. I remember just curling up in a chair and reading this straight through… gah, it was amazing. It just makes you feel so giddy — during and after!

    And WOO, The Hunger Games! That book is so addicting… I don't know how you could stand to drag it out over days. I neeeeded to know what was going to happen!

    I should really get to The Girl of Fire and Thorns soon, y'know *eyes copy on shelf* I love fantasy — what is going on?!

    Great list!

  4. I felt the same way about Anna and the French Kiss! And I also felt the same about Stephanie Perkins’ other book, Lola and the Boy Next Door. I haven’t read the other books on your list, except Hunger Games, which I liked but wasn’t a one day book for me. I’ve been wanting to read Wanderlove and The Goddess Test, plus some of the others sound very interesting, I’m going to add these books to my TBR list. 🙂

      1. I prefer Anna over Lola too! I think it because I like Etienne more, and that’s probably because of the accent I imagine him speaking with whenever he says something, lol.

  5. The Hunger Games is definitely a one day read! Not read the others, but I’m sure they’re just as good.
    Hope you enjoy Starters when it comes!

  6. I’m ashamed to admit I’ve only read two on this list so far o: LOL. Although there’s plenty I want to get to, so that’s promising it’s on this list! I especially need to get to Anna and the French Kiss. ;o I don’t think I’ve heard anything bad about that one, lol.
