Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Couldn’t Put Down

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week’s theme is books that you read in one sitting.  Now that I’m working full time, I’m not able to read for hours on end anymore.

So here is a list of books and series that, if possible, I would have consumed in one sitting.  I couldn’t limit it to just ten.

  1. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
  2. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
  3. Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce
  4. Green Rider series by Kristen Britain
  5. The Evermen Saga by James Maxwell
  6. His Fair Assassins series by Robin LaFevers
  7. Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson
  8. Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
  9. The Selection series by Kierra Cass
  10. Everything Rainbow Rowell has written
  11. Sevenwaters series by Juliet Marillier
  12. Saga comic series by Brian K. Vaughan
  13. Everything Morgan Matson has written
  14. The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
  15. Everything Sarah J. Maas has written

Have you read any of these?  What books have you read that were so addicting you couldn’t put them down?

    I read The Sun Is Also a Star in almost one sitting. It was so incredible.

      It is such a great book! And with all the talk of immigration reform in the US, it’s an important story to have out there.

    All the Harry Potter books, most definintely. I spent many hours in my youth devouring those. More recently, Gone With the Wind. I read this in the time I was in Minnesota between moving back from Thailand and moving to DC. As I was unemployed at the time, I spent a large portion of my days devouring this book–and it took about a month, too, because it’s so long!

      I loved Gone With the Wind! I had heard that it was a tough read, but like you, I breezed right through. I don’t remember how long it took me–I think I read it sophomore year of college between assigned reading for Brit Lit II.
