Top Ten Tuesday: The Ones I Flew Through

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme 
This week's Top Ten Tuesday Theme:
Books I Read in One Sitting

Um, yeah, I don't think that's ever happened. Ever. So I'm going to put my own twist on this week's theme and share the books that I read super fast. The ones that were so unputdownable that I flew through them. Also, I'm sharing twelve not ten. Just because I can.

Ten Tiny Breaths - K.A. Tucker
This was the first book I read from Tucker and I could hardly put it down.
Attachments - Rainbow Rowell
Rowell's books are just so incredibly readable. I was completely charmed by Attachments and gobbled it up.
Trust in Me - Jennifer L. Armentrout
For some reason reading from Cam's POV had me flying through this one.
Scorched - Jennifer L. Armentrout
I don't know if I was just in the right mood for this one or if it was the story but I inhaled this one by Armentrout. I wish it got more attention.
The Summer I Found You - Jolene Perry
I feel like I mention this one a lot but that's because it made such a huge impression on me. I simply couldn't put it down and I think I read it in one day.
Something Like Normal - Trish Doller
Oh, this book. Travis's story hurt my heart and I just kept reading because I was desperate for him to find his footing again.
Faking It - Cora Carmack
I feel like I rarely mention Cora Carmack even though she's a favorite. I love her Losing It series and adore the Rusk University series. Faking It is my fave from the Losing It series and I flew through it.
The Fault in Our Stars - John Green
To be honest, I'm not really a fan of John Green's writing, but TFiOS was somehow an exception and I found myself practicall speed reading it because I had to know how it ended. *grabs tissue and curses John Green*
When I'm Gone - Abbi Glines
Abbi Glines is another author that I feel I don't mention much but I basically inhale everything she writes. Granted, her books are rarely lengthy, but even so, I fly through them.
One True Loves - Taylor Jenkins Reid
This was one of my favorite books of 2016 and I was hooked from the very first page. I practically devoured this emotional story (and still wanted more).
Kill Devil Hills - Sarah Darlington
I was so invested in this story. Georgie was relatable and Noah was perfection. (Also, at just over 200 pages it was easy to speed through this one.)
Easy - Tammara Webber
Another favorite that, for some reason, I rarely mention. I fell head over heels for Lucas and Jacqueline and I basically inhaled their story. 


Have you ever read a book in one sitting?

  1. ♥ your list!

    I had a hard time with Attachments for some reason! But I totally agree re: Easy and Faking It!

    I always read Mary Whitney's books in one sitting and last year I read The Unexpected Everything in one sitting

    1. Thanks Eva :) Interesting that you had a hard time with Attachments. That's tied for my favorite Rainbow Rowell novel. I can't believe you read The Unexpected Everything is one sitting! That's one chunky book! :)

  2. I had Landline on my list but I think I read all of Rainbow Rowell books pretty quickly! TFIOS is another I read super quick too.

    2. I think most of Rowell's are quick reads. Her writing style is just so easy and the stories are usually ones that I don't want to stop reading.

  3. Fangirl was like that for me so I could see other Rainbow Rowell books having a similar effect. And the Taylor Jenkins Reid book I read was pretty good as well.

    1. I think there's just something about Rainbow Rowell books that make them so... readable. The flow so well and I never want to put them down.

    1. Oh I'd love to listen to the audio version of Easy! I should check my library for that one.

  6. I think the only one of these I've read is The Fault in Our Stars. But I really want to read Easy---everyone seems to love that book!

    1. Easy is one I picked up on a whim and ended up becoming an all-time favorite. The follow-up, Breakable, is just as emotional and heartfelt.

  7. I really loved Attachments. I know I HAVE read books in one sitting, or at least all in one day, but I tend to forget what they are later!

    1. Attachments was just so sweet and so charming! And I'm totally in the mood for a reread. :)

  8. The Fault in Our Stars was a quick read for me - not one day/one sitting - but quick. I haven't read any of the other books on your list but several are on my TBR! Guess I'd better hurry and get to them!

    1. I'm not sure I've ever actually read a book in one sitting. I do *not* read that fast! :)

  9. Great list, Tanya! I've only read 3 from it but there are quite a few that I have on my shelves...One True Loves thanks to you! ;) Faking It, Kill Devil Hills, and Easy were all excellent and I also flew through them but didn't read them all in one sitting. Not sure that's possible for me. ;)

    1. Same here, Brandee... reading a book in one sitting just doesn't seem possible... but I guess people actually do it. Crazy!

  10. I haven't read any of these books. It's good to know that Rainbow Rowell books are super readable an addicting because I used a couple of audible credits recently to get 2 (I believe) of her audiobooks. *I haven't listened yet

    1. How cool that you have credits for Rainbow Rowell books! I've read all her books but one but have only listened to one on audio - Eleanor & Park - and it was done so well. I've listened to that one several times. I hope you'll enjoy them, Lauren!

  11. Great list! So Ten Tiny Breaths and One True Loves were "MUST READ...RIGHT NOW" for me. I also could not get into Attachments. RR just isn't an author for me. Lauren @ Obsessive Book Nerd

    1. Too bad Attachments didn't work for you, but I get it. Not every author clicks with every reader. I'm like that with Jandy Nelson. People *LOVE* her writing but I just can't do it.
