alexia’s picks


1. Damage Done by Amanda Panitch. It’s been awhile since I read this one, but I’m pretty sure I read it in one afternoon. I could NOT put it down.

2. Placebo Junkies by J. C. Carleson. Another one that I read in one afternoon. I had to know what was going on with these characters.

3. This Is Where it Ends by Marieke Nijikamp. I read this one in one night. I think it was 2-3 hours? I could not put it down.

4. Pretty Girl-13 by Liz Coley. This book was read during our bingo readathon that we did last year and I got so swept up in it that I finished it super quickly.

5. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys. This was another book I read during our bingo readathon and I really did read the entire afternoon away with this one.


6. The Adjustment by Suzanne Young. I really could have picked ANY of the books from this series because they’ve pretty much ALL made me read the day away.

7. Last Seen Leaving by Caleb Roehrig. I read this one at night and oh boy, I read the entire night away because I was so captivated by the story.

8. The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord. This one was an afternoon read and I gobbled it up in one afternoon, in one sitting.

9. Coming Up for Air by Miranda Kenneally.
This one was a night read and I read the night away with this one as I immersed myself in this book.

10. Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson.
This one was definitely an all day read. I didn’t finish it all in one day, but I did read the majority of it in one day.


bekka’s picks

1. Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman. There’s just something about a journey fueled by revenge that sucks me in. I want to see justice be done. I want the main character to avenge whatever wrongdoing was done to them in the beginning of the book.

2. Harry Potter by JK Rowling. This is easy, right? I mean, wouldn’t we all just love to curl up on a comfy chair with a warm beverage and just wile the day away immersing ourselves in the world of HP?

3. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. So the whole book is the two main characters being chased down by the Big Bad who is actually kind of terrifying and you just cannot put something akin to a fantasy car chase down. Or at least I can’t.

4. The Merciless by Danielle Vega. I read this FAST because I needed to know if it was real or if the “villains” were just evil and twisted. The best part is you actually get that resolution at the end.

5. The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle. This short book has so many quirks and so many weird happenings, you just have to figure out what’s real, why it’s happening, and how everything ties together. Next thing you know, you’ve finished the book and your afternoon is suddenly evening.

6. Delicate Monsters by Stephanie Kuehn. So this is like a train wreck. Soooo disturbing that you just can’t look away. It’s really twisted and dark and disgusting at times, but I had to keep reading.

7. Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas. You all know my love for this thriller. I think probably all thrillers that are written well have this quality, but I HAVE to know what happened and who did it, and I will read the day away until I figure it out.

8. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins. I was so wrapped up in Isla and Josh’s romance, I easily devoured the book in one day. Almost one sitting, but I had to pause so I could go to the launch party!

9. Poison Apples: Poems for You, My Pretty by Christine Heppermann. Unlike other poetry collections that I’ve read – by the way, I’m not a huge poetry reader – this one’s pages just flew by. All about fairy tales and modern girlhood and feminism.

10. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. The nature of Illuminae’s format made it an easy book to get lost in. I read this in a single day, even though it was 600+ pages long. I loved immersing myself in basically every page; there were so many tiny details and Easter Eggs to find.


Have you read any of these?

    Between Shades of Grey, HP 1 & Dangerous Girls were all on my list this week too. I wasn’t a huge fan of The Accident Season, but I’m just not that keen on that style of writing so that was probably more me than the book.
