Top Ten Tuesday: Books to Read in a Day


Here's a few books I that I would recommend sitting down and reading in a day. By definition, I've picked books that are short (mostly) and very engaging...and of course, books I've loved! Do you agree with me? What would you add to the list?

Top Ten Books To Read in a Day

1. Skellig by David Almond
2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
3. The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
4. Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen
5. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
6. Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
7. The Giver by Lois Lowry
8. Getting the Girl by Markus Zusak
9. A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park
10. May B. by Caroline Starr Rose

  1. Scarlet is on my list to read, good to know it's a quick read. I loved Island of the Blue Dolphin when I was younger.

  2. I had completely forgotten about Island of the Blue Dolphins. I read it in fourth grade and loved it. I may just need to pick it up again.

    This is a good idea for a list. Sometimes I just want to get consumed in and finish a book on a lazy day.

    1. M.C.: I love Island of the Blue Dolphins! And every time my kids are reading it, I pick it up just to remember it for a minute and then end up reading the whole thing again. Awesome book!

  3. I almost read THG in a day, but Corey wanted me to go to bed so I'd go to church the next day, lol. But total reading time it was less than 24 hours.

    1. Hannah: Really? And I thought The Giver would be off a lot of people's radar!

  9. For certain, the Hunger Games could be read in a day. I loved The goose Girl, but that one may take two days. I have not hear of Getting Girl but reminds me to ask you... Which Zusak book do you think I should read next?

    1. Ibeeeg: You are probably right on The Goose Girl.. it takes a bit to get into that one. And I think you should read I Am The Messenger next by the lovely Markus Zusak. :)
