Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wish Had A Faster Pace

foodie-facts-about-me-20

Happy Tuesday!! Have you ever wished that a story would pick up the speed just a little bit? (Or maybe a lot?) If so, you’re not alone! In this week’s installment of Top Ten Tuesday I’m sharing ten books that I wish had a faster pace.Β While I do love slow-burning novels driven by character development, it can never hurt to have an exciting plot to keep readers on their toes!

  1. I am currently reading On Beauty – Zadie Smith, I am enjoying it and it is so highly regarded but it is just quite slow, not exactly the page turner I expected…
    You should try The Pact – Jodie Picoult, it builds to a court case at the end and the dialogue is so gripping, I love it!

    1. I think I’ve only read one Jodie Picoult book before, so I’ll definitely look into reading The Pact. I love stories involving dramatic court cases! Thanks for the recommendation!

  2. Wow, I haven’t read any of these. /o\ I’m planning to read The Shinning this year for Halloween, but I want to listen to the audiobook. Maybe that will help! I’m not surprised, though. I mean, it’s Stephen King. I mentioned one of his books in my TTT this week, too. xD

    I follow you on Instagram but didn’t realize you have a blog! πŸ™‚

  3. Great list! I haven’t read The Tale of Two Cities, but I remember desperately wishing that Great Expectations moved a lot faster. I can’t really name any other books that I wish moved faster. Probably because I DNFed them if the pace was too slow for my liking. πŸ˜…

    1. I rarely DNF books, which is probably why it’s easy for me to list so many books with a slow pace. I feel like being more comfortable DNFing books is definitely something that I need to work on. Also, A Tale of Two Cities is great despite its slow pace! I would still recommend it πŸ™‚

  4. A absolutely LOVE Persuasion. It’s my second favorite book from Austen, just after P&P, of course. But I agree, the pacing could be a bit slow in some places. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the other books just yet, but hopefully once I get around to them, the slower pace won’t deter me from enjoying them. Lovely list, Holly πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you!! I feel like I should try rereading Persuasion at some point because I think I would appreciate it more the second time around. I did really enjoy the overall story, especially because I could relate with a lot of the feelings that the main character experiences. Anyways, happy reading! πŸ™‚

      1. Please do! It’s a wonderful story πŸ˜€ And I agree, the characters and their emotions are so relatable. Hope you enjoy it even more the second time around! πŸ˜€ I’d love to read your thoughts on it!

  5. I laughed when I saw Gulliver’s Travels on this list. It’s not my favorite book. Maybe I’m just not into Swift’s satiric bent. Who knows.

    But A Tale of Two Cities! That’s one of Dickens’ shorter novels. I don’t think we can ask him to pick it up. That seems like the best he was able to do! πŸ˜‰
