Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly list making meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and it’s one of my favorite things about book blogging! Each week is a fun new topic for us all to flail over, and I love creating my own list just as much as I love perusing everyone else’s! I’ve found both amazing books to add to my TBR pile, and amazing people to add to my life!
This week’s topic?
Top Ten Books You Can Read in a Day
Honestly, I haven’t been this excited about a Top Ten Tuesday in a long time – and not even really because of my choices, but because I can’t wait to see what everybody else picks!
There’s something so immensely satisfying about getting so wrapped up in a story that you literally can’t do anything else until you finish it, and I really hope to find some others to add to my TBR!
There is really something to be said for everyone, not just kids, picking up middle grade books every now and then. Some of them can pack quite a punch (The War that Saved My Life), others can tackle really heavy topics in ways that are approachable to kids and give adults a way to see these heavy topics in simpler ways (Once), some are pure magical fun (Grounded), some are delightfully fun binge worthy romps with a surprising amount of heart (Warriors), and some really just bring you back to those magical moments of being a kid and having your whole world ahead of you (Ella Enchanted).
Man, but I love finding a book that is just so freaking good I can fly through it in just a day or two – that’s one of the ways I know a book is going to be a 4 or 5 star read. The feeling of adrenaline and desire to get back to a book in spite of everything else going on in your life is so much fun. Sometimes it’s because the characters are so real and heartbreaking and you just have to know what is going to happen (Say Goodnight, Gracie), sometimes it’s because the story is written in dual POV/dual timeline and you just have to know what’s going to happen in the next chapter (Maybe in Another Life), sometimes it’s because there’s a secret identity and you are dying to know who it is (Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda), sometimes it’s because the banterificly amazing dialogue and subtly perfect sexy times have you in rapture (The Hating Game), and sometimes it’s because you’ve found a book that feels exactly like coming home even though you didn’t know you left (Summers at Castle Auburn).
And as a bonus, here are five series that I absolutely LOVED and totally flew through – each installment of each of these series was, to me, just as good if not better than the last, and I wholeheartedly recommend them (all the time) (to anyone that will listen) (and sometimes to people who want me to stop talking about them) (but I won’t because they’re amazing).
Have you read any of these books or series? Did you fly through them like me??
