Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is a read in one sitting freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books You’ll Stay up All Night Reading so You Can Finish Them in One Go.
My blog’s name is Reading Every Night so I guess this felt like an appropriate pick for this week’s themed free-for-all. Besides we’ve all had those books we just couldn’t put down. You keep telling yourself it’ll be ‘just one more chapter’ but before you know it it’s four in the morning, you’ve finished your book, and haven’t been to sleep yet despite needing to get up for work in two hours.
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab
After the way A Gathering of Shadows ended you won’t be able to read this one fast enough. The action starts from the very first page and continues until the very end. In my opinion A Conjuring of Light is the very best of the series and was more than worth the agonising wait.
The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon
The Bone Season very quickly becomes an addictive series. So much happens over the course of three books and there is a lot more at play under the surface. With four books to be released there is still a lot left to happen, but you’ll wonder how anything can exceed what’s already happened.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Although this one isn’t as action packed as the others on my list there’s something about the story, the characters, and even the world itself that just won’t let you go. Simon and Baz’s story is an incredibly heart-warming one, and this will likely be a book you stay up late reading more than once.
Winter by Marissa Meyer
The conclusion to this series is one that feels a long time coming, having been built up since the first page of Cinder. There is a lot happening in this book but with over 800 pages to tell the story the plot is well developed and paced. You won’t want to put this down until you know how everything ends for your favourite characters.
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
After the ending of Six of Crows you’ll be desperate to jump right into Crooked Kingdom, and this book won’t disappoint. There are so many twists and turns you won’t be able to put it down, and you’ll find yourself constantly wondering how Kaz manages to be three steps ahead of everyone else in this deadly game.
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
In reality it’s the whole trilogy that you will stay up all night reading. Once you finish The Knife of Never Letting Go you won’t want to wait before jumping into The Ask and the Answer, and it will be the same when you finish the second book. Patrick Ness has created a wonderful story you won’t want to leave.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
From the very first page you’re drawn into the magic and wonder of the circus, and the danger of the battle waged between Celia and Marco. While this book isn’t as action packed as the others on my list The Night Circus has a setting that will hook you from the first page and leave you wanting more after the last.
Golden Son by Pierce Brown
While the first book was slow to start that is not a problem the second book has. From the beginning Golden Son is action-packed, through bloody and gruesome. You’ll be on the edge of your seat desperate to find out what happened to Darrow, and left shocked by the direction Pierce Brown takes the story and its characters.
The Scarecrow Queen by Melinda Salisbury
All the world building, character development, and hints of a bigger plot in the first two books come together in this last one and create a thrilling story. There was a lot built up and a lot The Scarecrow Queen had to deliver but it did it wonderfully, and you won’t want this story to end.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
This could actually apply to any Sarah J. Maas book because she is an amazing author when it comes to hooking readers and leaving them wanting more. There is a reason A Court of Wings and Ruin and the sixth Throne of Glass book are incredibly anticipated by so many readers.
So what do you think? Did you take part in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, if so let me know what you picked for this week’s themed free-for-all, or what some of the books you stayed up all night reading are.
