As we recount more than once here, I’m a turtle reader. I don’t read books at a fast pace. This doesn’t mean I’m always find the books tedious, it just means I cannot sit for hours and bury my nose in a book. I have to do something else and then move on to something else and one the trend goes. So these are some of the books I wish I’d read in one sitting. Kind of.
Reading a book rapidly is also kind of one of those good/bad things. On one hand, it’s good if a novel is that good (you want to keep going) that’s the sign of the BEST kind of novel. But then on the other, once it’s done, the book is done! That can inspire some tears, too. Either way, it’s time to look at a few of the books I loved enough to have wish I’d sped read them (and as I have a terrible memory, how knows! Maybe some of these I did speed read).

1: THE RUNAWAY PRINCESS, HESTER BROWNE
2: AGAINST THE TIDE, ELIZABETH CAMDEN
3: JO & LAURIE, MELISSA DE LA CRUZ AND MARGARET STOHL
4: BEFORE I CALLED YOU MINE, NICOLE DEESE
5: THE O’MALLEY BOOKS, DEE HENDERSON
I’d find it interesting to go back in and re-read some of the books I adored as a younger person. Often makes me wonder if I should or if I should just leave them alone and enjoy my memory of the book. What about you? How do you feel about re-reading? Search on Amazon | Goodreads
6: THE SATURDAY NIGHT SUPPER CLUB, CARLA LAUREANO
7: SUBMERGED, DANI PETTREY
8: DEAR MR. KNIGHTLEY, KATHERINE REAY
I remember not really care one way or another about this one, but am SO glad I went ahead to read the book. It’s still one of my very favorites and though its title may imply it, this is not a re-telling of Emma but rather uses Jane Austen to influence its story. Find on Amazon \ Goodreads
9: GEEK GIRL, HOLLY SMALE
10: [ANYTHING] KASIE WEST
You guys already knew this was coming. Yes, I have to include her on the list because her books are like rays of lovely sunshine! Sadly, given the way I see social media going, I need this. Search on Amazon \ Goodreads
And so many others currently still on my shelf, making it through multiple unhauls.
5 BOOKS I HOPE ARE READ IN ONE SITTING KIND OF BOOKS
Don’t have a clue if I’d like these books, but a girl can hope!
1: THE BETRAYED, KIERA CASS
2: THE RUNAWAY PRINCESS, LINDSAY EMORY
3: DEAREST JOSEPHINE, CAROLINE GEORGE
4: THE LONDON HOUSE, KATHERINE REAY
5: [ANYTHING] JENNIFER E. SMITH
I’ve read a couple of Smith’s books, and they’re good! Here’s hoping I enjoy the rest, too. Also, they tend to be the kind of reads easy to read in a rapid pace kind of way. Search on Amazon \ Goodreads
