Top Ten Tuesday is a Weekly Feature by Broke and Bookish ❤
This week is all about the books you simply cannot put down once you have started reading them. If I am reading a great book, I actually have to force myself to put it down and out of reach as once I start reading, I wont stop. On a number of occasions I have been up until 3 or 4 am reading.
So, here are some of the books that I could not put down once I started reading them.
- Shadow and Bone- I actually just started this book on the train to work today and now all I want to do is go home and continue reading. I am so tempted to find a quite place in the office and read it during lunch.
- A Court of Thorns and Roses Series– Sarah J Maas draws you in with her writing and her story. On numerous occasions I had to force myself to stop reading to sleep.
- The Lunar Chronicles Series– I binge read both Scarlet and Cress in a couple days. I actually went to the book shop on the way home the day I finished Scarlet and I just needed to get my hands on Cress. I am itching to start Winter which is currently sitting on my shelf.
- Rebel of the Sands-This book was such a pleasure to read, and an easy read too! The writing flowed and the story moved quickly so I never got bored or tired of reading it.
- The Iluminae Files-The way this series is structured and the format made me feel like a detective or investigator-trawling through documents and transcripts, piecing together the story. Once everything fell into place in each of the books, I just had to finish it to find out what happened.
- The Four Legendary Kingdoms (or pretty much any Matthew Reilly book): Matthew Reilly is one of those authors that I cannot put down once I have started reading his books. I reread his books multiple times and each time I do so I spend hours curled up in bed until I finish.
- The Da Vinci Code (or pretty much any Dan Brown book): Similar to Matthew Reilly, Dan Brown’s thriller books are very easy to read. I have reread his books multiple times (except for The Lost Symbol, which I found was boring) and I know when I pick up one of his books I can breeze through it in a day.
- Artemis Fowl: In my childhood I would borrow these books on a weekly basis from the library and spend all of my time at lunch and after school reading them.In the days where you would sign a card in the book when you borrowed i and get a stamp with the date from the librarian, my name filled up the majority of each cards in he books.
- Three Dark Crowns: When i picked up this book on a whim from Dymocks, I did not expect to be as drawn into the story as I was. As soon as I got on the train or the bus before or after work I was itching to pull this book out and start reading.
- Six of Crows: I am a huge fan of Leigh Bardugo’s writing! Six of Crows is a thrilling and suspenseful heist book, so no wonder I could not put it down.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks TTT. If you have any recommendations on books I won’t be able to put down, put them in the comments!
