Books I Read In One Sitting (Or Close To) | Top Five Wednesday

Books I Read In One Sitting (Or Close To)

Hello bookworms! It’s Wednesday, so that means it’s time for another Top 5 Wednesday! This post was created and is hosted by the lovely Lainey @ gingerreadslainey from BookTube! She’s amazing, so click her name to go to her YouTube!
This week’s topic is Books You Read in One Sitting – or close to at least. I am so excited for this topic. I, most of the time do not have enough time to read a book in one sitting unless it is extremely gripping and if it’s a book I’ve fallen in love with. I could honestly probably read many and almost all my books in one sitting if I wasn’t in school. But without further babbling, let’s get into the books I finished in one (or close to) sitting!

1. The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan


I read this book in literally a day. It is the last book in the Heroes of Olympus series and I find this quite incredible since it was a 514 paged book! But this book had gripped me so hard and I could not and would not put it down until it was done. And when it was done, I was wishing it didn’t end so soon!

2. Redeemed by P.C and Kristen Cast


The last book in the House of Night series was a book I read in 2 and a half days! I did a marathon read of this entire series over the January holidays at the beginning of this year – there are 12 books – because I hadn’t read this one yet. There was so much craziness and action that had me isolated in my house, on the couch, reading. I didn’t do anything all day until I had finished this. Literally. I didn’t even get up to eat or make tea. At all. 

3. Angelfall by Susan Ee


The first book in the Penryn and the End of Days trilogy. I read this in three days. It had me gripped from the very first sentence and I couldn’t wait to finish it. It was so easy to read and was so fast-paced and intense that I came home from school and spent all my free time reading it! 

4. Inheritance by Christopher Paolini 


As the last book in the Inheritance Cycle series, I was dying to read and know the ending. By this book I was utterly in love with the series. Despite being 849 pages, I finished it in about 3 days. I know… crazy right? Well, it happened and if that doesn’t convince you that this series is incredible, I don’t know what will. Over 800 pages in 3 days guys! 

5. Rapture by Lauren Kate


I remember reading this a year or two ago and I’m positive I read it in 2-3 days. I was extremely invested with the series and was ready to uncover the mystery surrounding the story. I had gone through so much discovery over the first three books that I needed to know the ending! 

That is all for this week’s Top 5 Wednesday post! I hope you enjoyed. Tell me in the comments: Did you finish any of the following in one sitting? If not, what books did you finish in one sitting? Please tell me, I would LOVE to know.

  1. The Blood of Olympus was definitely a thrilling read, and Angelfall was a fast-paced book that I also finished quite quickly! Both books were amazing, and I totally loved them. The House of Night series is great as well. 🙂

  2. Blood of Olympus came out during my exams so I wasn’t able to read it in one sitting but I was still able to read it in a couple of days 🙂 I’ve read the first book in the Fallen series but not sure if I should continue or not. Would u recommend it??

    1. That’s unfortunate! But a couple of days is still a good feat.
      I read it quite a while ago when my mind was quite young, so I don’t know if my recommendation would be completely reliable but I remember being completely enthralled with the series after the second book, so I would say check it out! I think thinks pick up after the second book. I will maybe re-read the series this year. xoxo

      1. Ok thanks!! 😀 I think I’ll still give the books a go since I own the whole series… I also want to finish the series before the movie comes out. 🙂

  3. I think I read Angelfall in 2 days… and the winner’s curse in one sitting (I only took breaks for coffee and to go to the bathroom). But there is one book that really stands out to me: The second Harry Potter book. I got it for christmas waaaay back and I read through the whole night. Gosh was I tired the next morning! Kinda miss those times where you could just read and don’t think of next day responsibilities.
    Rapture’s cover looks great, I think I should check that series out.

    1. I have sadly and embarrassingly not read the Harry Potter series! I need to get to it but I don’t know when I’ll have the time! Probably once I graduate at the end of this year.
      I LOVE those days were you could just read all night long and know that the next day, you don’t have to be anywhere, definitely!
      You should check it out, the series is great! It’s got angels, time travel and romance! xoxo

  4. Blood Of Olympus! Yes! It was bittersweet but I still loved it! Great list 😀

    1. Bittersweet indeed! I could read the series over and over again!
