10 Books You Can Read in 24 Hours or Less!

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? ūüėČ

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!

 

 

 

30065028

 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling

Because Harry Potter, obviously.

 

 

 

 

18293427-2

 

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!

 

 

 

16143347

 

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?

How did your reading go during July? Did you get to all of the books that you wanted to? Did you participate in any of the reading challenges?

 

WWW Wednesday – July 26th, 2017

Welcome to WWW Wednesday which is currently being hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words. It’s really just a place to do little update on what all you’ve been reading lately. Anyone is welcome to join, just leave a link to your post in the comments and be sure to give the appropriate credit to Sam!

The Three W’s are:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you‚Äôll read next?

What are you currently reading?

  • The Song Rising (The Bone Season, #3)¬†by Samantha Shannon
  • Parker¬†by Jillian Quinn
  • The Winter Sea¬†by Susanna Kearsley – audiobook

I’m still chugging along with¬†The Winter Sea, but this audiobook is over 15 hours long so I expect it’ll be a while before I finish it. I’ve finally moved on to the third book in¬†The Bone Season¬†trilogy and so far it’s really good. There’s a map of Ireland in this one, which gives me hope that Paige and the gang will be heading there at some point. AHHHHHHH!!!

What did you recently finish reading?

  • The Wicked & The Divine, Vol. 2: Fandemonium¬†by Kieron Gillen – ¬†4/5 stars, graphic novel
  • The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)¬†by Samantha Shannon – 5/5 stars
  • Norse Mythology¬†by Neil Gaiman – 3/5 stars
  • A Million Junes¬†by Emily Henry – 5/5 stars
  • The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)¬†by Samantha Shannon – 5/5 stars

You can thank the 24in48 Readathon for why I had such a good reading week. I really enjoyed all of the books that I read this past week, though I was let down by Gaiman’s newest novel. I think my expectations were just too high.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)¬†by Leigh Bardugo
  • Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)¬†by Leigh Bardugo

Yes, that’s right – I have not read this extremely well-loved duology! But you know, better late than never, right? And if you’re wondering if I had these books on my shelves since their release…well, you might be right. Oops?


What books have you read this week? What are you currently reading? Do you have anything exciting up next on your TBR? Have you read any of the books on my list? If so, what did you think of them?

  • The Wicked & The Divine, Vol. 2: Fandemonium¬†by Kieron Gillen – graphic novel
  • Parker¬†by Jillian Quinn
  • The Winter Sea (Slains, #1)¬†by Susanna Kearsley – audiobook

Don’t ask me how I got to be reading/listening to 4 different books. I honestly have no idea, because this isn’t typical for me at all. I do plan on finishing¬†The Wicked & The Divine¬†tonight though, so that should cut it down to a more acceptable amount… I hope so at least.

What did you recently finish reading?

  • The Wicked & The Divine, Vol. 1: The Faust Act¬†by Kieron Gillen – graphic novel, 4/5 stars
  • Bone Gap¬†by Laura Ruby – audiobook, 2/5 stars

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)¬†by Samantha Shannon
  • The Song Rising (The Bone Season, #3)¬†by Samantha Shannon

The most logical choices as I continue on with Smashing Series Summer. I’m really excited to see where this series is going next as I’m falling in love with¬†The Bone Season¬†all over again!
