Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read in a Weekend


Happy Tuesday!! This week is another Top Ten Tuesday freebie, so I’ve decided to share a list of books that I’ve been looking forward to making for quite some time: Ten Books I’ve Read in a Weekend.Β Some of these books I read over the course of a single weekend because they were very short; however, some of them were just too good to put down for long!











What great books have you flown through in a single weekend? What do you think of the books I’ve mentioned? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. I love this topic! I must confess i could not finish The Night Circus in a weekend. It probably took me about a week but I was into reading it slowly and trying to stay in that magical circus World as long as I could πŸ™‚

    1. YES definitely read Milk and Honey!! It’s such a great poetry collection and Rupi Kaur’s writing is absolutely beautiful. I read the entire collection in one sitting and sticky noted SO MANY poems to go back to and read again later. πŸ™‚

    1. I was expecting to enjoy Far from the Madding Crowd, but I never thought that I would end up loving it as much as I did! There’s something about the combination of the brilliant story and Hardy’s beautiful writing that kept my eyes glued to the page.

  2. Hi Holly, Great list! The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein is fantastic — I couldn’t put it down and finished it in a number of hours. I’ve also re-read The Hobbit numerous times over weekends πŸ™‚ –Sam

    1. Oh, The Hobbit is another great one!! I definitely should have added it to my list πŸ™‚ I’ll definitely have to check out The Art of Racing in the Rain. Thanks for the recommendation!


  3. Oh how I wish I had the time and reading speed to power through a book in a weekend. Like dang, you read through All The Light…in a few days? I’d roll around in my bed at the thought of zipping through a Hist-Fic like that haha (although I was excited for this book when I first heard about it — and even instabought it). Still haven’t read it though haaah.

    I can definitely see/listen to Mindy Kaling over the weekend though. It’s basically like chilling with your best friend.

    1. I think I was able to read All the Light We Cannot See so quickly because I was so captivated by the story. It was over Christmas break my senior year of high school so I had plenty of time to read (I don’t read super quickly, I just spend a lot of time reading in general haha).
      I completely agree with your point on Mindy Kaling– her books are so conversational and hilarious that it feels as though you’ve been besties for years ❀ Love her so much!


  4. You may actually know this one, but “Sands of Mars” (Arthur C. Clarke) is one that I read in a single day –just couldn’t put it down. Despite being a bit obsolete, it is so well designed it makes your imagination spur away constantly. Definitely worth a try πŸ™‚

    Thank you for the post! πŸ˜€

    1. I’ve actually never heard of Sands of Mars before, but now that you’ve recommended it I’ll definitely have to give it a try. Thanks!! πŸ™‚
