Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books To Read In A Day

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  

Being the slow reader that I am, I rarely sit down and read a whole book in one day. And if I do they would be short books. I honestly can't imagine myself reading a 500 or so pages book in one day. I really envy those who can do that >_< The books on this list are books my-slow-reading self finds manageable to get through in a day. If you are a slow reader like me, you may want to check this out ;-)

Anyway, on to the list. Those are in no particular order.

1- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
This book means alot to me. I will never get tired of it. A good relaxing  afternoon read with the good old memories...

2- A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
A Very short book with gorgeous illustrations. Probably it will keep you up all night. I'll let you know once I do read it but I heard from multiple people that it's very terrifying

3- Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
This book is featured in alot of my lists. I can't help it! It's so enchanting.

4- For One More Day by Mitch Albom
If you want to cry, read any of Mitch Albom's books.

5- The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum

I read this book several times as a child. Baum is not the best storyteller, but he had a wonderful imagination.

6- A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
I never get tired of this story.

7- Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
If you want a book that can touch your heart in a short amount of time, read this!

8- Coraline by Neil Gaiman

9- Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

10- Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen

Let me know what's on your list :)


  1. Oh you have some great books on your list. I read Ella once and I enjoyed it. Oz! Love it! I still haven't read A Christmas Carol, I own it, maybe Ill read it during Christmas this year and not just watch the movie.


  2. Wonderful list! I loved Ella Enchanted growing up! Mitch Albom is incredible too. I read Tuesdays with Morrie for my freshman seminar class in college. Loved it.

    Fantastic list! Have a great week!

    Our Top Ten!


  3. A Monster Calls was so emotional and I loved it too. Fantastic list!

  4. A book doesn't need to be long to be great as evidenced by your list. I need to check out Coraline now, because I know others you listed are wonderful, thanks.

  5. Oh Number the Stars is so good! I totally forgot about that book! And I'm glad you agree with me on Tuck Everlasting. It's definitely a keeper!

  6. I love Mitch Albom's books - you're so right. I think I've cried in every single one that I've read.

  7. Great list! I have yet to get around to Gaiman's Coraline. Thanks for dropping by my blog a few days ago, happy weekend! =D

  8. Ooh, great choices! Ella Enchanted and Tuck Everlasting are two I've wanted to read since before I can remember. And one of my goals for the year is to read Neil Gaiman - I've never read any of his books!
