TTT #194 | Books I Read In One Sitting

We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is Books I Read In One Sitting (or would have if I had the time). Of course the easy answer would be any kind of graphic novel or manga but I’ll try to get some bigger novels in there. Let’s jump in!

1.Mockingjay – Suzanne Collins

My first ever binge read! I got this one for Christmas years ago and started reading it on Christmas Eve. It wasn’t until the early hours of Christmas morning that I fell asleep after reading the whole book (and bawling my eyes out might I add).

2. Slay – Brittney Morris

I read this during my vacation last year, I think it was supposed to be a buddy read but I just kept reading until I finished it. It was an amazing read and I hope to read Brittney’s newest release very soon.

3. A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder – Holly Jackson

This was such an exciting YA mystery. While I didn’t necessarily read it in one sitting, I did have trouble putting it down. I just wanted to keep going and find out what happened!

4. The Inheritance Games – Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Another YA mystery! I guess they are good for binge reading haha. Jennifer is one of my absolute favorite authors and I really enjoy her writing style. Also, I needed to know what was going on badly!

5. Foul is Fair – Hannah Capin

THIS WAS SO GOOD! I got an eARC and after I started the book I spend every free second of my day reading this book. This is very dark and definitely not for every one, but I enjoyed it so much.

 6. That’s Not What I Heard – Stephanie Kate Strohm

While I mostly read this in one sitting because I was part of the blogtour and I left it way too late, I also really liked it. This book was super funny and I think I would’ve binged it without the deadline as well. I hope to read more books by Stephanie!

7. All for the Game trilogy – Nora Sakavic

These books aren’t the best, I know. But I listened to the audiobooks for all three in just a couple of days haha. I loved the story and I loved the characters. This was definitely a guilty pleasure but I will do a reread at some point!

8. They Both Die At The End – Adam Silvera

I start crying just thinking about this book! Adam writes such heartbreaking stories but I can’t stay away. Even though I was a bit skeptical going into this one, I couldn’t put it down and I bawled my eyes out.

9. Six of Crows duology – Leigh Bardugo

Recently Candyce and I did a reread of this duology (And read King of Scars and Rule of Wolves) and while we made a nice schedule I just had to go and ruin it haha. I was able to pace myself for the first couple of days but after that I just had to go and read the whole book. And I believe that happened with basically all 4 books we read haha. They are just that good!!

10. 172 Hours on the Moon – Johan Harstad

I’ve talked about this one before and you might be able to guess why I binge read this one. This is one of the scariest stories I ever read, it still haunts me. So I had to read it really quick, usually there is some sort of resolution at the end of a book and you start to relax again after finishing the book. That meant I had to keep reading and reading and reading so I could finally go to sleep ;).

These are 10 books (or series) I read in one sitting. Or that I binge read because I just couldn’t put them down. Have you read any of these books? And can you imagine be reading them in one sitting? Which books did you read in one sitting? Let me know down below!

  1. I also read all the Hunger Games books in one sitting. I remember I was pretty sick at the time and had nothing else to do and read them all in the space of 2 days!

  2. Six of Crows was on my list this week too, though I did change the topic slightly, I didn’t read it in one sitting, but it was a fast read for me. A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder was also one I found hard to put down. I think Mockingjay was probably the slowest of the three Hunger Games books for me, but I still got through it pretty quickly. Foul Is Fair was kind of a slow read for me, and I didn’t really like it, but I’m glad you enjoyed it more.

  3. Being unemployed at the moment, I’ve gone to preferring reading most of my books in one sitting, but before then I did have a couple I just couldn’t stop. Most of the Shatter Me series were this way, Laini Taylor’s series, the Artemis Fowl series, and both of Allie Brosh’s books come to mind.
