Default Books You Couldn't Put Down

Ever read a book you just could not put down?

Whether you actually read it in one sitting, or whether thoughts of it consumed all hours spent not reading it, what books could you really not put down?

Tells us! What made them so gripping?

So far there are 2 books for me: The Hate U Give and Crazy Rich Asians language wise (as someone who's not a native speaker), they are easier to understand for me.

Plot wise: Crazy Rich Asians is funny as hell (at least for someone who's an Asian, specifically lives in southeast Asia and knows a bit about Singaporean stereotypes) I mean, Kevin Kwan is #ownvoice author because he's an old-money rich Singaporean.

THUG well... I'm lost of words. It feels like if I skipped this I will miss something, like watching an on-going crime show!

Is it bad to say that I've been trying to figure out what books really clung to me since you posted?

So, I sat and have had a think... And I came up with a few that I remember trying to trad as much as possible around work or just curling up and not doing anything else allll day until it was finished -
  1. Eragon / Eldest / Brisingr by Christopher Paolini
  2. Poison Study / Magic Study / Fire Study by Maria V. Snyder
  3. Clockwork Angel / Clockwork Prince / Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
  4. Northern Lights / The Subtle Knife / The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
  5. PS I love you by Cecelia Ahern
  6. The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

There are so many others, but these I know for definite that my plans were put on hold as much as possible. Whoops.

The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, since I watched the movie first I just kept trying to read more and more of it and remember if those parts made it in to the movie.

From the books I read this year, I can think of four. The first is The House of Hades by Rick Riordan. I feel like if I didn't have homework or classes, I would not have put the book down at all but alas It's my favourite book from The Heroes of Olympus series.

Next is, like Raven mentioned, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. I finished this book so quickly, you have no idea. I wanted to know immediately what Starr was gonna do And the book is so inspiring and relevant. I love it. It has my heart.

Third is Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. This book, I literally finished within a day. NOT KIDDING. It's so beautiful and uwu. I wanted to love and protect Ari and Dante.

Lastly, it's Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I also literally finished this book within a day. It's so easy to read because of its writing style/format, and it also talks about my second love: music. A win-win for me

Ahhh there have been some books that I have just devoured over the last few months but here are some that I have read suppper quickly this year alone;
  • You Should See Me In A Crown by Leah Johnson
  • One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London
  • Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo
  • Anything but Easy by Susie Tate
  • Inheritance by Christopher Paolini (but its a BIG book so I had to put it down just to digest it)
  • Heartstopper v1-3 by Alice Oseman
  • The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
  • The Kite Runner by Khaled Hossieni
  • Beastly by Alex Flinn
  • Clockwork Prince & Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
  • Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham

I've also read a lot of books that I didn't put down because of their size; a mix of childrens classics that I'm rereading and graphic novels that I can easily read in one sitting.

I'm currently reading the first Game of Thrones audiobook and I'm taking it slowly so that I can listen, understand and comprehend the masterful layering that is happening... I'm also reading The Secret of You and Me by Melissa Lenhardt and although I'm only 8% in I already don't want to put the book down.

Big agree on both of these! I LOVED the Crazy Rich Asisans series. I think I somehow lucked out and got all three as e-books from the library. I just sped through them. They're a delight and very humorous.

Have you checked out his newest book yet? I have it on hold currently!

Just going to comment on GoT--- yaaaaaaaaaas, I'm very glad my SS friends made me read those. Well, at least the first three. I remember I checked out the first one from the library, I think, and sped through it so quickly that I had to go out and buy them from Barnes & Noble because the rest were, of course, checked out already at the library.

They do start to slow down around book 4 or 5 though. At least, that's where I started watching the show and haven't finished reading. I'LL COME BACK TO IT SOMETIME THOUGH. I will. I will. I've been saying that for three years now but I WILL.

As for me? The Ember in the Ashes books were ones I couldn't put it down. But I also loved Where'd You Go, Bernadette? That was one hilarious mystery of sorts that I absolutely loved reading. So so funny. I'm looking forward to reading more by Maria Semple.

Okay, so I just binged all three books in the YA series "Truly Devious" by Maureen Johnson (plot under the spoiler). It's probably not a series for everyone, but it hit me right where I live: murder mystery, tight pacing, TWISTS AND TURNS, quirky characters, dialogue that occasionally made me lol... The main character is a true crime fanatic who wants to solve the crime of the century, a murder and kidnapping that took place at her new boarding school ninety years ago.

I typically hate to read series all in a row because they're over TOO FAST, but I couldn't stand not knowing what would happen next after staying up late to finish each book.

If you don't like true crime or mystery novels, or you think YA fiction is too immature or whatever, then this isn't for you, but it's a super fun read and I hope some other nerds read these books too.

SPOILER!!: PLOT
Ellingham Academy is a famous private school in Vermont for the brightest thinkers, inventors, and artists. It was founded by Albert Ellingham, an early twentieth century tycoon, who wanted to make a wonderful place full of riddles, twisting pathways, and gardens. “A place,” he said, “where learning is a game.”

Shortly after the school opened, his wife and daughter were kidnapped. The only real clue was a mocking riddle listing methods of murder, signed with the frightening pseudonym “Truly, Devious.” It became one of the great unsolved crimes of American history.

True-crime aficionado Stevie Bell is set to begin her first year at Ellingham Academy, and she has an ambitious plan: She will solve this cold case. That is, she will solve the case when she gets a grip on her demanding new school life and her housemates: the inventor, the novelist, the actor, the artist, and the jokester. But something strange is happening. Truly Devious makes a surprise return, and death revisits Ellingham Academy. The past has crawled out of its grave. Someone has gotten away with murder.

The two interwoven mysteries of this first book in the Truly Devious series dovetail brilliantly, and Stevie Bell will continue her relentless quest for the murderers in books two and three.

Just finished the Conference of the Birds and it was amazing, just like the others. I love this series and every book has caught my attention right away.
