Top Ten Tuesday #99


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. 
The Top 10 Books I've Read In One Sitting:

Harry Potter Boxset (Harry Potter, #1-7)Lords of the North (The Saxon Stories, #3)Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)AmazoniaDaughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)Angels' Blood (Guild Hunter, #1)Seven Years to SinThe Secret History: A Novel of Empress TheodoraA Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire, #1)



 1
.The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I've read all of them in one sitting (many times over).

2. 
The Saxon Stories Book 5: Lords of the North by Bernard Cornwell. I read this one last week in a single sitting in preparation of the newest season of the Netflix adaptation of this series (The Last Kingdom) premiering. Excellent historical fiction!

3.
 Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry. I loved the couple in this one and I am NOT one for YA romances but this one got me and I devoured it.

4. 
Amazonia by James Rollins. I love all of his books though this is my favourite by him. Rip roaring adventure in the amazon with fantastical creatures? Sign me up.

5. 
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. I remember starting this one around 10 P.M. and  was finished it in 4 hours. Absolutely loved this one. Unfortunately the rest of the series was a let down for me but this was amazing.

6. 
Angel's Blood (Guild Hunter #1) by Nalini Singh I remember reading this one for a read-a-thon like 5 years ago and I loved it. I've been reading the series ever since. Want a kick ass heroine? Check this series out.

7.
Seven Years to Sin by Sylvia Day I love Sylvia Day's romances in general but this one was special. Loved the characters and how unconventional their relationship was. If you like steamy reads check this one out.

8.
The Secret History A Novel of Empress Theodora by Stephanie Thornton she writes about strong women in history and I LOVE HER BOOKS. I read this one on a rainy day whilst on summer vacation and was done by supper. She truly brings history to life.

9.
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin while I didn't read it in one sitting the first time I read it I have read it twice since then both on cold winter days starting in the early morning and finishing by bed time.

10. 
His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire #1) by Naomi Novik set in an alternate history of our world the victorians have access to dragons for full scale aerial assults and to wage war and THEY TALK to their crew. Love this book, and series in general. Highly recommended.

  2. I'm SO with you on Pushing the Limits!! I really don't like YA Romance all that much, but Echo and Noah got to me too. I wasn't really a fan of the rest of the series, so I guess it was just those 2 characters that I relate to. Great list :)

  3. I loved Harry Potter of course and I also adored Daughter of Smoke and Bone though it took me longer to read it sadly! My Top Ten

  4. Ooh nice! Yeah, I took longer with Harry myself. I was in school for most of them. Though I remember towards the end they were releasing in summer so I did devote myself fully to them then too!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  8. I think I could read HP in one sitting too, though I always try to read them slowly because I love the books so much I don't want to rush through them... Here's my TTT!

  9. I could read the first three HPs in one sitting, after that it's a bit of a stretch!
