Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
. Today's topic is: Top Ten Books to Read in a Day
1. The Fault in Our Stars
by John Green
The last book I read in one day. I dare you to stop reading it.
2. The Hunger Games
by Suzanne Collins
by RJ Palacio
Amazing, heartwarming story about a boy with a severe facial deformity who goes to school for the first time. I read it in a weekend and if I didn't have papers to grade I probably would've read it in a day.
4. The One and Only Ivan
by Katherine Applegate
Sparse and beautiful, sad and joyful. It reads like a novel in verse. Ivan is destined to become a children's classic
5. The True Meaning of Smekday
by Adam Rex
With a main character with the name Gratuity and an alien named J.Lo, hilarity ensues with great frequency in this novel.
by Lauren Myracle
Compelling and disturbing, the ending stayed with me for a very long time.
7. Because of Winn-Dixie
by Kate DiCamillo
One of the best dog books ever written because... the dog doesn't die at the end!
8. Anna and the French Kiss
by Stephanie Perkins
Perkins' first novel was so full of heart and wonderful characters that you just can't stop turning the pages.
9. Whale Talk
by Chris Crutcher
Chris Crutcher is the master at writing compelling, albeit controversial stories. The controversy compels you to read. The lovable characters keep you turning the page.
10. If I Stay
by Gayle Forman
Cried so hard with this book I gave myself a headache. But it was oh so worth it. Remember laying in my bed just sobbing uncontrollably.
I've read a few of these in a day: Hunger Games, Fault in Our Stars, and If I Stay. I've had Anna on my list forever. Maybe I should just devote a day to it:)ReplyDelete
Love this list! I've read a few on here that I agree were fantastic - like The Hunger Games series - and I have others on my TBR list ... one day I will get to Shine because the cover is so gorgeous.ReplyDelete
