Top 10 Books You Can Read in One Sitting

tuesday top 10This is a really slapped together post bc I haven’t posed in years and I have the beginning feelings of remorse, so soz and I hope you like this….whatever this is.

So, my peeps, I want you to know that I hear your cries. I know the cruel world has made reading tough this time of year whether it be school or work or if you’re just going through a terrible slump , but I hear you and I am HERE to help!

I kept in mind that these books should be a decent length (to be able to consume in one sitting) but should also be HELLA entertaining bc no one wants to sit through a bore fest, no matter how short the book is

And so I have compiled this list especially for your needs! Don’t ever say I wasn’t helpful

10. Speak

I read this book quite a long time ago and though I don’t remember much from it, it’s basically a modern classic and it concerns a pretty important topic (trigger warning for rape) so if you looking for something a little heavy on the emotions, here ya are

9. The Princess Saves Herself in This One

OKAY, this book is really a hit-or-miss bc half the community hates it while the other half loves it. I’m on the loving it side and yes they’re basically tumblr quotes that someone pressed the enter key after each thought BUT ITS A QUICK READ AND I LOVED IT OKAY

autumn leaf7. Every Heart a Doorway

autumn leaf6. A List of Cages

13. A List of CagesI always seem so inclined to sad books, idk why i’m like this but a list of cages was one of the best contemporary books, with its quick chapters and heartfelt plot, really a great read on all accounts.

OKAY YES, I UNDERSTAND THAT READING THIS BOOK COMES WITH CONDITIONS, being 1) you’re probably gonna wanna read the first two books in the series before you read this otherwise you’ll be so lost

autumn leaf4. Letters to the Lost

Sadness to brighten your day and your reading challenge. Honestly, made me cryyyyyyyy but I adore it with my heart.

autumn leaf1. On the Jellico Road1377087942onthejellicoeroadcover


On of the very best contemporaries I’ve ever read and it’s been over a year but I’m still shook over it okay please, just read this and come scream with me about how melina marchetta is the queen we don’t deserve.

  2. I’ve decided from this post you must be my soul sister! Not only am I super slumping so this post is a godsend, but I’m also super drawn to emotional heavy-hitting stories. Plus, I own half of these so I apparently need to get on them!! I featured Jellicoe Road in my list TTT post today…in the sense that it was used in an orange bookstack to support my actual book selection…so that counts right?? lol Thanks for this post!!

  3. “I always seem so inclined to sad books, idk why i’m like this” THAT IS SO ME. I don’t know why I keep on reading and buying books like that when I’m just an emotional bean and end up being a sobbing mess every.single.time.
    A List of Cages was SO GOOD, I loved this book so much. I really want to read Eliza and her Monsters, hope to get to that one soon! ❤
    Great post!! ❤


      1. YES. Also, I’m glad because now I know next time I cry over a book – which will probably be like, in a couple days?? I always cry over books, because I always read sad books ahah — I KNOW I can come to you and you will have all the feels with me ahah. ❤ ❤

  4. So many great picks on here! I loved A Monster Calls and Every Heart a Doorway and zipped right through them they are fantastic quick reads. I also have What We Saw, Eliza and Her Monsters, and Jellicoe Road on my TBR as well and I have pretty high expectations for all them because it seems everyone loves them! 🙂
