Top Ten Tuesday: Books To Read In A Day

We often rant about how long some books are and how difficult it is to find time to read them, but it's much more unusual to rave about shorter reads, so I chose this topic for today's Top Ten Tuesday Rewind.

Top Ten Tuesday was created and is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books To Read In A Day

1. Cold Water, by Gwendoline Riley - atmospheric and beautiful.

2. All My Friends Are Superheroes, by Andrew Kaufman - imaginative, funny, and romantic.

3. Bonjour Tristesse, by Fran├žoise Sagan - absorbing and tragic.

4. The Plain Janes, by Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg - a graphic novel in which four very different teenaged Janes get together and make public artworks. There's also a sequel, Janes in Love.

5. Breakers, by Julia Clarke - emotionally involving, great characterisation.

6. Life on the Refrigerator Door, by Alice Kuipers - a story told via notes from a mother and daughter to each other. A tearjerker.

7. Milk, Sulphate and Alby Starvation, by Martin Millar- surreal, silly, super.

8. The Butterfly Tattoo, by Philip Pullman - a short thriller with a poignant ending.

9. grl2grl, by Julie Anne Peters - a diverse and really enjoyable selection of stories about LGBT characters.

10. Festival, by David Belbin - four characters' lives become entwined at Glastonbury festival.

What shorter reads would you recommend?


  1. Great pick. I've heard great things about Notes on the Refrigerator Door and really want to read that one. Nice list :) My TTT.

  2. Great list! I have only read Life on the Refrigerator Door and I loved it.. I thought it was a light read but all of a sudden it was so deep! I will look into the other, some of them sounds very interesting!

    I would recommend Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen, all of Isaac Marions short stories and The Lorax by Dr. Seuss!
