Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish.
This week's theme is books that I would recommend to ANYONE to read within a day - or I have done so myself (although as I'm quite a slow reader and have limited time ALL THE TIME, it is rare for me to read a book in a day)
1. The Fault in Our Stars - John Green - I have literally just finished this this morning and honestly, right now, I would make someone read it for the rest of the day to see the amazingness of this book. My friend, Emma, in fact did read this in a day - a college day. How, I do not know. Another friend, George - two days (one of which she was working). THIS IS A QUICK BOOK BECAUSE IT IS SO GREAT. (prepare for my rant on how amazing this is later in the week)
2. Shadow Web - N.M.Browne - this is one of those rare books which I have in fact read in a day. This is a dark horse of YA - I think it should get so much more attention that it actually gets. I just love the idea of it. (Review)
3. Once - Morris Gleitzman - This is a short story, so therefore, it is easy enough to read within a day, even if you were doing something e.g. working. The other two books in the series are equal in length - if you try this one, check out the sequel Then - written so well. (Review)
4. The Lover's Dictionary - David Levithan - this isn't one of my favourite books ever read but it is pretty darn powerful and great to read. It may not be particularly memorable plot-wise, but the format is the thing that is memorable and original - it is written in the form of a dictionary with words that mean something to a couple. With some pages only having a sentence, I flew through this book eagerly. (Review)
5. Star-crossed - Rachel Wing - This looks like one of those 'typical' fluffy teenage books for younger teens. And in a way it is. BUT HOLD YOUR HORSES ON YOUR JUDGEMENTS, this was a lovely little find for my 14 year-old self. It is written in 2nd person which makes it so interesting. And it is absolutely hilarious at points and so heart-breaking at others. Read it. (Review)
