Top Ten Tuesday: Books to read in one sitting

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers. This week’s theme is “Books to read in one sitting“.  I’ve tried not to just pick my all-time favourite books but books that I genuinely couldn’t put down the first time I read them.  Interestingly, although I read mostly fantasy and sci-fi, a lot of the books I read in one sitting are contemporary – I love savouring a good fantasy novel, whereas I’ll burn quickly through a contemporary or a thriller with an addictive plot.

Something to make you think

If you’re looking for something thought-provoking with a serious emotional punch, you can’t go wrong with any of the four above.  All four have stuck with me long since finishing, even though they only took a day or so each to read.

Something fun

Fangirl, What’s a Girl Gotta do and Carry On are just great fun, addictive reads I didn’t want to put down, despite the fact I wasn’t necessarily convinced I’d love any of them!

Something escapist

Ah, my favourite – sci-fi and fantasy!  The Martian is one of my absolute favourites because it’s addictive and funny, and both The Girl with All the Gifts and The Three are something totally unusual.
