Do you ever just pick up a book and become so engrossed in it that you can’t put it down and finish it in one sitting? Or maybe you finish a book with one day still left before the read-a-thon or challenge ends and need something to help you reach your goal? Well you’re in luck, because I have compiled a list of my favorite reads that I was able to finish in 24 hours or less to help you out!
We could always add some more books to our TBR, right? 😉
Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
Short story anthologies tend to be favorites for read-a-thons and this one is no exception. At just a little over 200 pages, you’re sure to speed through this book.
The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2) by Samantha Shannon
Honestly, you could read any of the books in this series in one setting because they’re just that addictive. However, this book really raised the stakes. I might be just a tad obsessed.
The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 1: The Faust Act by Gillen McKelvie & Wilson Cowles
If you like graphic novels or are interested in picking one up, try this series! This was my first venture into graphic novels and I was immediately engrossed in the story incorporating mythological gods and beings.
Love, Lies and Spies by Cindy Anstey
If you’re looking for a cutesy period romance with a sassy heroine, this book is perfect for you. It never takes itself seriously and we can all appreciate a hate to love romance!
The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
This is one contemporary that I just could not put down. It completely broke me. I’ve been putting off reading his latest novel, because I’m just not ready for another heartbreak!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling
Because Harry Potter, obviously.
The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
Another heartwarming story about finding love when you least expect it. The main character is also an introverted book lover that we all will recognize as one of us!
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
I know the reviews on this book tend to be a bit mixed, but I loved it. The story is so engrossing and the cliffhanger will leave you in awe… or it did to me, at least!
Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1) by Tahereh Mafi
You might as well include all 3 books in the series, because I couldn’t put any of them down. Though I will warn you that this is a series that gets better with each book, so don’t let the first one get you down!
Starflight (Starflight, #1) by Melissa Landers
When you just need a fun science fiction novel that involves an eclectic crew of space pirates and a whole lotta witty dialogue, turn to this beauty. It’s non-stop fun!
What are some books that you were able to finish in one sitting? Do you ever find yourself looking for a quick read? If you have read any of the books on my list, what did you think of them?
