Daisy's Top Ten Books To Read In One Day


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

For future Top Ten Tuesday topics, check them out here!

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is all about books to read in one day. So it's basically a list of books that had me so on the edge of my seat reading them that I shushed everyone who dared interrupt me :)

1. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi: Seriously you guys, if you haven't read this book and are a fan of good dystopian YA GO OUT AND GET YOUR HANDS ON IT NOW! It was SO good and I just wanted to keep reading from the moment I started it.

2. Witchlanders by Lena Coakley: I'm still not entirely sure how this book hasn't been getting more buzz cause it's so incredibly awesome! The writing is beautiful and I absolutely didn't want to put it down. I'm still wishing there will be a sequel.

3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: towards the end there is too much tension to find out if there will be a happily ever after to put it down for the night! I had so much adrenaline going on I couldn't sleep after even though it left me with a big smile on my face!

4. If I Stay by Gayle Forman: reading this was such a rush and I couldn't bring myself to stop until I reached the end. I was an emotional wreck after finishing it.

5. Delirium by Lauren Oliver: because the ENDING! The storytelling is wonderful and it completely sucked me in, but after the ending you will wish you had already had the forsight to order Pandemonium as well so you can read it straight after! Although I'm told Pandemonium also ends on a cliffhanger...

6. Nine Rules To Break When Romancing A Rake by Sarah MacLean: the romance in this one is AMAZING! Really, this whole series is wonderful. There's all this tension and conflict and heartbreak and a swoonworthy man... If you like historical romance, definitely read this one. I couldn't put it down to save my life.

7. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier: because it's a classic that's actually exciting and will have you wanting to know what exactly is going on at Manderley and what the deal is with Rebecca.

8. Graceling by Kristin Cashore: do I even need to explain why? It's EPIC fantasy and it needs to be read all at once to get the full experience!

9. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: I started this book and 'woke up' 374 pages later to discover several hours and meals had passed. You will thank yourself for picking a time when you can read it all at once when you start it cause doing other stuff will just feel irrelevant.

10. You Wish by Mandy Hubbard: because it's just absolutely cute and a great way to spend a sunny/rainy/neutral weather afternoon. It is that good.

So what are books you read in one day? Or books you think should be read in one day? I personally feel that most books are best experienced when you read all of it in a short amount of time and I seem to enjoy them more when I do read them in one day.

  1. I'm bashing myself into a wall because HOW DARE I FORGET ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS, hahaha. Yes, so much love! Uhm, also - I still haven't read Graceling. I really, really ought to get on that, right?

  2. With that emphatic declaration, I'm obviously going to have to move Under the Never Sky up on my to-buy list. And a very big AMEN to Anna & the French Kiss, Delirium, If I Stay, Rebecca and The Hunger Games. Such good taste in books :) THG also made my list - but I included Where She Went and Pandemonium instead. I'm going to have to check out the ones I haven't read (or heard of) soon!

  3. Ahh, great list! Rebecca was one of my picks last week - so much great suspense in that book. And Sarah MacLean, I've never read any of her books but I have her latest and I can't wait to start it. I've heard marvelous things about her, and she's got such a fun personality!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Ooh! Hunger Games and Delirium all the way! And there's a lot I haven't heard of on this list. I'll have to add them!

    ReplyDelete
  5. My answers all were books that I actually read in one day. Several of the books you listed I listened to on audiobooks which always takes longer than reading.

  6. Looks like I am going to have to move Under The Never Sky up on my to read list! Hunger Games is definitely number one on my Top 10 for this week! I couldn't put it down! I've been trying to get Anna and the French Kiss for awhile. I actually read Lola and the Boy Next Door and loved it. Great list :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I would have to agree with almost all of these. You Wish, Hunger Games, and Anna in particular :)

  8. I love that you put Rebecca. It has been years since I read that. I think I will have to revisit it! I have read/devoured most of these. However, I chose short/novella reads for my list.
    My Top Ten Books!

  10. I keep seeing all these great things about Graceling. I think I need to move it up on my TBR list. That and If I Stay. But I'm so nervous that everyone keeps talking about being emotional messes at the end...I don't know if I'm ready for that just yet.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Sunny, rainy, or neutral weather afternoon. You Wish sounds like a don't miss. Wow, anyhow, off to Goodreads.

  12. Anna and the French Kiss is on mine too! It's such an easy read, and I love it to tidbits!

  14. I read If I Stay and Delirium in one day and I spent the rest of the day and week heartbroken. So worth it, I could not put them down but boy they were tough! I have got to read UtNS if it's an unputdownable book! Great list, thanks for sharing Daisy!

    ReplyDelete
  15. There are some fantastic books on the lists this week - my TBR pile continues to grow. Not sure how I feel about that!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. So hard to narrow the picks! Anna and the French Kiss didn't make my list, but what a perfect read to curl up with and read!

    Great topic as usual :)

  21. Hi, this week the French TTT was not inspiring, so I picked the english one.
    The Hunger Games is also on my list, but how could it not be? Seriously ?!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great list, and great interpretation. I interpreted it a little differently; being books that were amazing but short enough to be read in a single sitting.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great list, The Hunger Games and If I Stay made my list too. I've got Anna and the French Kiss on my tbr pile, and I'm very excited to get to it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think I'm going to check out Witchlanders.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think The Hunger Games will be on every list. That entire series is impossible to put down.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've still to read 'The Hunger Games' but intend to this coming weekend before seeing the film with a friend.

    There were a couple on Daisy's list I plan to check out including 'Witchlanders'. Also look forward to sampling other's lists.

  28. Hunger Games made my list as well. :) Still need to read Rebecca. xD

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great list. I actually didn't put The Hunger Games on my list, but only because I think it's pretty obvious that that is a read in one day book lol!! I wanted to show Indie love this week, so I put a lot of Indie books on mine.

    ReplyDelete
  30. My list is here. I'll add my name to the linky list ASAP.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great post! You have a few of the same ones as me. Just posted my top ten on my blog too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I agree, Under the Never Sky was amazing! I put Anna & The French Kiss on my list too, but I just can't get through Delirium :( Great List!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I see 3, 4, and 5 every where! Apparently, I am missing out. I need to get those books.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I haven't read that many of the books on your list yet but, I am reading Graceling right now and I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. The Hunger Games is on my list as well. Darn, I forgot to put Anna and The French Kiss on there.

    ReplyDelete

  38. I haven't read anything on this list apart from Hunger Games and Graceling, but they were both extremely hard to put down. I think I finished all three books in the Hunger Games series in two days in total, to put it that way.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I absolutely LOVE your book choices! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ha! Same thing happened to me with The Hunger Games. I finished it at 3am and messaged my friend that she needed to send me the second one asap. Then I couldn't sleep because I wanted it so bad! Here's the rest of my list: http://www.babiesbooksandsigns.com/2012/04/top-ten-tuesday.html

  41. I'm reading Under the Never Sky RIGHT NOW and I can't focus while I work. ALL I can think about is wanting to read. I just want to figure out their world. It's so captivating! :) Great list, Daisy!

  42. Great list. Most of those are on my TBR.

  44. Another thought provoking list! I definitely experienced THE HUNGER GAMES gotta-read-it fever, but what was most interesting to me was that most of my list was more driven by my connection to the characters than to the plot... (http://misadventuresfromthebrink.blogspot.com/2012/04/books-like-whoa-books-to-read-in-one.html)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I almost put Anna and the French Kiss on mine, but decided to keep my books around 300 pages. Otherwise, most of your choices would have been on it. ;D Because your choices are excellent.

    ReplyDelete
  46. YOU WISH! That one's on my list too... so funny & cute. I had to convince my sister to read it (she thought it was too pink & sounded cheesy), but then she LOVED IT.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Great list! Made one of my own on my blog. I realised that I can't put away any book I'm excited about!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Great List! I still can't believe that I haven't read Rebecca yet. This really makes me want to!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Anna and the French Kiss is on my list too! I could not set that book down. If I Stay was also on my list and I was an emotional wreck after reading it too.
    Great list!

    ReplyDelete

  56. Your list is fascinating with lots of authors that I need to consider. DuMaurier, however, is already among my favorites.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
