Top 10 Tuesday – Books I Read In One Sitting

Finally doing another top 10 Tuesday post! This weeks post is about books I read in one sitting. I also included books I read in one day even if I stopped in the middle to pick up later that day.

So here’s books I read in one day and absolutely loved them!

1 Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed – This book is a difficult read but I couldn’t stop once I started.

TW: forced marriage, rape.

2 This Is My Truth by Yasmin Rahman – Another difficult read but another one that I just couldn’t stop once I started.

Tw: Domestic violence

3 Misfit in Love by S.K. Ali – This book was pure serotonin!

4 Rumaysa by Radiya Hafiz – A MG story which I read in a couple hours and completely loved every second.

5 The Lives of Saints by Leigh Bardugo – I listened to this and Ben Barnes narrated it so of course I just spent 3 hours listening to him telling me the stories.

6 Moonchild by Aisha Bushby – Another that I listened to and basically raced though in one day.

7 Love From A to Z by S.K. Ali – The first time I read it I could not put it down it was such a wonderful book.

8 Diana and the Island of No Return by Aisha Saeed – Another MG that I raced through in one day!

9 Blood Moon by Lucy Cuthew – Written in verse I got through it in one day especially as it deals with periods shaming which is a topic I’m passionate about.

10 That Can Be Arranged by Huda Fahmy – A graphic novel that was so much fun to read I just could not put it down!

When I was younger I could get through huge books in one day. I read the HP books the day they released and I wish I had that kind of time and freedom now to do that!
