Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten Books to Read in a Day.


I cheated, kind of. It was too hard for me to pick ALL OF THE BOOKS so I narrowed it down to books I read in 2011 and this half of 2012 so far. SO, here it goes!



01. Divergent by Veronica Roth

I actually bought Divergent by Veronica Rothi to read on the plane on the way home from my study abroad in England. I made the mistake of picking it up a few days beforehand to read “just the first chapter” – and ended up finishing it by the end of the night! Whoops. My review is here.

02. Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen

Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen is just such a ME book, you know? It’s got sword fightings and historical fiction and swoonworthy men and kickass heroines. I was absolutely enraptured by Scarlet and I’m sure you will be too! My review is here.

03. Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

Demonglass, as well as the first book in the series, Hex Hall, is such an AMAZING witchy drama full of boarding school and mystery and murder and magic. I love these books and the protagonist and I love picking these books up and getting swept away. My review is here.

04. In Honor by Jessi Kirby

IN HONOR IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND MOVING. That is all.

05. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I often look at myself in the mirror and say, “Why did you wait so long to read The Hunger Games, Tara? What is wrong with you?” And then I say to myself, “Well, I read it in a damn day, okay? It was addicting. I made up for lost time.” Etc.

06. Past Perfect by Leila Sales

Leila Sales is HILARIOUS and so is Past Perfect. Majorly good times lie within these pages. My review is here.

07. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Man, Shatter Me is such a beautifully written and engaging dystopian. One of my faves for sure – sucked me right in! My review is here.

08. Saving June by Hannah Harrington

Saving June by Hannah Harrington had one of my favourite couples in YA ever! Road trips and grief and romance galore. My review is here.

09. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I have absolutely never read anything like Cinder before in my life, and I loved it SO MUCH. My review is here.

10. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith is a fun and moving and swoon-worthy book for sure! My review is here.
