Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
Today’s Top 10: Books I Read In One Sitting (or would have if I had the time)
#1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is the only classic I have on this list. And technically, it’s a re-read from earlier this year. I think the issues in this book are just as concerning today as they were in 1960 when this book was published.
#2. The Soulmate Equation by Chirstina Lauren is one of my favorite books of 2021. Technically this was a book I listened to and could not “pause”. I was on a road trip to California while I listened to this book.
#3. Daisy Jones and the Six is another audiobook that I couldn’t stop listening to. I even drove home the long way in order to finish this book. It was fun, and amazing and I want to read it next, even though the audiobook is amazing.
#4. Pack Up the Moon by Kristan Higgins was another of my favorite books of 2021. It’s a real tearjerker for sure, but the love story was one of the best I’ve ever read. I could not put this book down.
#5. How to Walk Away by Katherine Center was a book that I still can’t forget. I loved the combination of humor and strong emotions in this book. I have loved everything Katherine Center has written, but this is one of her best.
#6. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne was so much fun. I love office humor, and The Hating Game was just so well done, with lots of laughs, but also some very tender moments.
#7. I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella is one of her best books in my opinion. Everything Sophie Kinsella writes is a winner in my book, but I really loved this one and just couldn’t put it down until the end.
#8. Always the Last To Know by Kristan Higgins is one of my favorite books she’s written. It’s full of family drama and dysfunction along with Ms. Higgins’s classic humor that I always enjoy.
#9. Happiness for Beginners is another great book by Katherine Center. I especially loved this one as it’s about backpacking and hiking which are pursuits that my husband and I enjoy. I could totally relate to all the hardships Helen encountered during her journey. And, it’s one of the best slow-burn romance stories I’ve read.
#10. It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover is my favorite Colleen Hoover book. It’s so emotional and takes a very difficult subject and explores some of the issues that so many women face.
Have you read any of these books? Which book or books have you read without stopping? Comment below!
Daisy Jones & The Six, It Ends With Us, How To Walk Away, The Hating Game and To Kill A Mockingbird would be on mine too! And I’m hoping to read The Soulmate Equation next month.
Thank you Yvonne, we have such similar tastes in books. I think you’ll really enjoy the Soulmate Equation.
Great list! I haven’t read any of these but The Hating Game is on my tbr.
Thank you! The Hating Game is so much fun. I enjoyed the workplace humor!
Love your list Wendy! You hav so many of my favorites on there!💖💖💖
Thanks Kaceey, we do seem to have similar tastes in books!
I have read four of them and will be reading or listening to Pack up the Moon in the next week or so. I need to try Daisy Jones again as so many people loved it and I gave up on it relatively quickly. Nice list Wendy.
Thanks Carla. For Daisey Jones, you might want to listen to it vs read as the narration is excellent. I hope you enjoy Pack Up the Moon, it’s one of my favorites.
You’ve read TKAM in one sitting? That’s impressive!
The Hating Game by Sally Thorne seems like a fun story.
Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday list!
Thanks Lectrice. I read TKAM just after I retired, so I had a lot of time on my hands!
I haven’t read anything by Colleen Hoover yet and I really need to. I also loved To Kill a Mockingbird and think I’ll now probably be able to read it in one sitting. Daisy Jones and the Six took me a long time to finish. I almost lost hope with it to be honest, but I’m glad I did finish it in the end.
Great list you have today!
Thank you Mareli, I was on a long road trip and listened to Daisey Jones, the narration was excellent.
