Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s all about books to read in one sitting.
Now, when I think about one-sitting reads, I think about feel-good YA contemporaries.
Because as much as I love fantasy, I usually try to pace myself a bit more while reading it and make it last. Contemporaries, on the other hand, depend on the subject matter. Heavy, dark contemporaries dealing with tough subjects take more time to read. Because they’re tough and I need time to arm my heart.
But fluffy, adorable, feel-good contemporaries? I INHALE READ THEM. So yes, the books most likely to be read in one sitting by me are the feel-good contemporaries. These are perfect reads for a self-care day. Get a blanket, snacks, drinks and anything else important within arms’ reach, settle in, and GO!
Simon is my go-to feel-good read, so of course I had to start with this one. Get ready to have the hugest smile on your face after reading this cute story. Instant self-care!
Really, any Kasie West would do. I chose P.S. I Like You because it has my favorite trope, quirky families and a love of music, which always warms my heart.
This book won’t only make you feel good, it’ll also make you want to pack your bag and leave on a backpacking trip around Europe right away. Perfect for when you want to get in a travel mood.
Oh hi, penpal romance, have I mentioned I love you lately? Because I do. Add friendship, waffles and a love of words and I’m sold!
How To Repair A Mechanical Heart is such a heart-warming and hilarious look into fandom life. It’s funny, it’s quirky, it’s unapologetically fangirly. It has so much heart. And it’s basically one big roadtrip. What’s not to love?
What Light is the perfect feel-good read if you want to get in the Christmassy mood. It has all the Christmas staples and could possible even make the Grinch want to decorate their Christmas tree.
Love letters that accidentally get sent out, sister love, pretend dating and LOTS OF FOOD. This book is super cute and perfect for a self-care inhale reading. (Warning: make sure you have some form of cake nearby. You’ll want it while reading.)
I think this is pretty much the classic YA contemporary romance out there and it is worth all the hype! If a boarding school romance, friends falling in love and a Paris setting rock your boat, then this is the book to read for you!
Morgan Matson’s books are usually a bit longer, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be read in one sitting. You can do it! Especially this one is one of my favorites, as it features friendship and LISTS!
Rainbow Rowell is another contemporary YA (and adult) classic and especially her Fangirl is a favorite of mine. A relatable socially awkward heroine who loves Simon and Baz fanfiction, a lovable romance and a lot of heart make this a perfect feel-good read.
