Books You Can Read in a Day - January '13 Update

I can't believe January is gone already! It's time to see how we're doing on our Books You Can Read in a Day Challenge! You can keep track of my entire year's progress here. My goal for the year is to read 25 books. I've got a good start, reading 5 books that qualify just in January! (I doubt if I'll be able to keep up that pace, though.)

Here's what I read in January:

1. A Certain October, by Angela Johnson
2. All the Earth, Thrown to the Sky, by Joe R. Lansdale
3. 12 Things to Do Before You Crash and Burn, by James Proimos
4. The Always War, by Margaret Peterson Haddix
5. Dying to Know You, by Aidan Chambers

How about you? Have you read any books in ONE DAY? Give me some suggestions.

If you would like to join us it' not too late! There's a link to the challenge page on the sidebar.

If you are participating, please leave a link to your post, or just list your books in the comments. Hope you are having fun with these "little gems."

  1. I love this idea! 12 Things to Do Before You Crash and Burn sounds interesting, I should definitely check it out!
    Some books I read in a day were: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (short book, but SO amazing!) and I also read The Fault in Our Stars, I just couldn't put it down!

    1. I've read both of those great books. Not sure I read them in a day, but they are great ones for that!

  2. Great start! I did 6 books in January:
    1. Dare You To by Katie McGarry
    2. Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett
    3. Reached by Ally Condie
    4. The Hidden Gallery by Maryrose Wood
    5. Frost by Kathryn James
    6. The Other Slipper by Kenechi Udogu

    Love this challenge! :D

  3. I did just one in a day: The Midwife's Tale by Sam Thomas. A really great historical fiction mystery set in York, England, King Charles I's time.

  4. What a fun idea! I'm a really slow reader (I like to savor my reads, but then I'm always complaining about being behind, go figure), so I don't often read books in one day or in one sitting, but recently I read THREE books in one sitting without sacrificing an ounce of content/feeling. I guess I was just really into them. They were Scarlet, Eleanor & Park and Bruised.

    I sort of hope this means I'm becoming a faster reader, but I'm not going to hold my breath. :-)


Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments!
