It's time for another edition of Top Ten Tuesday, brought to you by the folks at The Broke and the Bookish (I always feel like writing ... brought to you by the letter B! It's been a long, long, long day...) It's not often that I can actually finish a book in one day, but these are the books that I've definitely devoured as quickly as possible, and usually in just a few days.
1. The Fault in Our Stars - John Green
Still one of my favourite books of 2012. I stayed up late to finish the last chunk of the book, then had to stay up even later talking to my husband and getting him to make me laugh so that I'd stop crying.
2. The entire Harry Potter series - J.K. Rowling
No, not read ALL of them in a day, but these are all books that can be devoured quickly for sure!
3. Twilight Saga - Stephenie Meyer
As badly written as these were, I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning finishing each one.
4. The Hunger Games series - Suzanne Collins
Again, up until the early hours of the morning because I just couldn't put the book down.
5. The Golden Compass - Philip Pullman
I actually read almost the entire book in one sitting, on a beach, forgetting to flip over and apply more sunscreen. Addicting book = nasty sunburn =(
6. The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane - Kate DiCamillo
This is one that I KNOW I read in one sitting, then read again to my husband while we were driving to Alberta. And I was in tears at the end each time.
7. Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver
I feel like this book is on every single one of my top tens. But seriously. One of the best books of all time. I am about to buy my sister-in-law a copy, just so that she'll give me my copy back.
8. The Gargoyle - Andrew Davidson
This was a book that I wanted to read in one day, but I had to force myself to read it slower since it's SO epically beautiful and deserves to be savoured.
9. The Eyes of the Dragon - Stephen King
I read this in a couple of days, but I remember my then-boyfriend, now-husband coming home from work when we lived in Burnaby and asking how my day was. I was reading out on the porch in the sunshine and told him to shush and go away because the book was so amazing and I couldn't put it down. It was his recommendation and he fully understood.
10. The Truth About Forever - Sarah Dessen
Now that I've reached the end of the list, there are about 50 more books that I want to include, but I'll have to go with the first Sarah Dessen novel that I ever read. I read this while I was working at Bolen's and I'm pretty sure I read the whole thing in a day. After finishing, I spent the rest of the summer reading everything else she'd ever written.
