TTT - Books I Pretty Much Devoured in 2 Days or Less


This top 10 weekly meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and can be found HERE.  Each week they focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading. Today I'm sharing with you books I devoured (or basically read really quickly because I thought they were so good).









Don't think I need to say more.  This was the first book I read in 2017 and by far it's one of the best.

I don't read a lot of biographies but I have picked them up from time to time. I read this in 2012 because Ice T is my favorite character on Law & Order: SVU.  Such a engrossing read.

I love this entire series and have found all of them really fast reads.  I wish there were more books scheduled.

This book is so hilarious and fun I think I read it in one afternoon.

I think because this is told in emails, it made it fly by really quickly.  

I always fly through Lucy Dillon's books and this one was no exception.  Plus, I love any excuse to show this cover.

This book is awesome - pun intended!  Plus the author is also Hillary Monahan who writes other horror titles as well as this one.

Ok so technically this is a novella and it's easier to read it all in one sitting but I think I would have even if it had been longer - and oh I wish it had been longer.

One of my favorite books of last year.  It's so fast paced and I loved it so much that I couldn't put it down.

I loved this series and found all of the books really quick reads.  I kept waiting for the next installment to be released but it kept getting pushed back and I finally gave up.  Not sure what happened to the author or this series so if anyone knows, please clue me in.

  1. I loved Certain Dark Things too. I especially enjoyed the unique take on vampires.

    1. It was so interesting and will probably remain one of my favorite vamp tales of all time.

    2. I know, I love Ice T. I think he's great in the new lemonade commercial that's running on TV - I think it's actually an insurance add.

  3. I'm curious about Hyperbole...I love the cover and I could use a few laughs in my reading! I will get to The Demonists at some point. I'm trying to plan out next couple of months reading tasks at the moment!

    1. It's awesome. Such an honest yet funny take on life. You should definitely read it.

  4. I really need to re borrow Certain Dark Things. I had it, then got distracted by new shiny things.

    You may be the first Keven J Anderson fan I have seen in a long time. I am not myself but read several of his books years back when he did the Star Wars thing.

    1. I know all too well the attraction of new shiny things - you definitely need to give it a go. This is really the only Anderson series I read but I have loved them all.

  5. You have some good books on this list, some I've read and some I want to read. Every Heart is of course a favorite of mine, and Certain Dark Things. I thought Roomies was really cute. And I'd love to find time for Hyperbole and a Half:-)

    1. I forget where I first saw Roomies but I had to grab a copy from my library. Every once in a while I need to read something lighter and it fit the bill at that time.

  6. I loved the idea behind Every Heart A Doorway, and can't watit to read more of Seanan McGuire! I want to read Kevin J. Anderson- I met him at my first BEA years ago but just haven't made the time... yet!

    1. You definitely need to make time for the sequel "Down Among the Sticks and Bones." I LOVED it as well and it's just as good as "Every Heart..."

    1. Yes you CAN read another book about vampires because this one is awesome! So glad you going to get to "Every Heart..." as well. I read an ARC of the sequel and it's just as good.

      Delete
    2. I GOT IT!!! It's coming from the library Monday. OMG you are SO BAD for my planning! LOL there is always a book you recommended in my immediate TBR list. So now two! Every Hearst is a doorway and this Vampire one :) bad influencer!

      Delete
    3. Well you returned the favor because my library is holding See You in the Cosmos for me!

  8. I don't read many celebrity memoirs either, so it is cool to see you have Ice-T's memoir on your list... I didn't even know he had a memoir out. I may just go ahead and read it.

    Here's a link to my TTT post: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2017/03/top-ten-tuesday-list-of-books-to-read.html

    1. I think it's several years old but it was really interesting learning more about him. My husband remembers him from back in the rap days and it's kind of cool to see how he has mellowed over the years but still remains badass!

  9. Ooh Hyperbole and a Half. I really want to read that! And I've read a Mira Grant novella about killer mermaids (Rolling in the Deep) which was kinda freaky but I haven't tried her other ones yet...

    1. I always forget she writes as Mira Grant too. Man, she puts out a lot of stuff.

  10. I can rarely read a book in one or two days. There are some good books, some I have heard of and others I haven't. :)

    1. Well...we all know there are the ones that take forever - STILL looking at you "Little Heaven."

  11. I liked Death Warmed Over. I listened to the audio and thought it was a lot of fun. Every Heart a Doorway was a great book. I still need to read the Demonists. Great list!

    1. You should continue on with the series. They're all pretty good.

  12. Nice, I think I also "devoured" Certain Dark Things in less than two days, but that's in quotes because I listened to the audio. That usually makes breezing through books easier, but that said, it was a fantastic book too ;)

    1. I really think it's my most recommended book this year so far - I tell everyone to read it. But it's sooooo worth it!

  13. Oh, I need to read that Hyperbole & a Half. Used to love to read her blog. I read Big Little Lies on our vaca last week - devoted that in a couple of days. Good page-turner.
