Books I Read In One Sitting (Or Would Have If I Had The Time) ๐Ÿ“š

Ciao! And welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by The Artsy Ready Girl.

I’ve read a lot of books in one sitting over the years when I had enough time on my hands. For this Top Ten, I’ll be listing books I would’ve like to read in one sitting if I had the time from my TBR. I’m not reading a lot lately, but I’m looking forward to the personal reading marathon I’ve set for next month. Let’s begin…

1. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

I don’t know what this book is about, and I don’t want to know. I just want to read it in one sitting.

2. The Maidens by Alex Michaelides

The Maidens by Alex Michaelides

I’ll love to sit and devour this book in one sitting, but I’m still reading ‘The Silent Patient’ by this author, and since my reading is all over the place lately, I’m certain I won’t be reading this book until year-end or so.

3. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

His books tend to be longer than an ocean bed. I’m not excited to read this book. I just want to read it and get it over with.

4. Bel-Ami by Guy de Maupassant

Bel-Ami by Guy de Maupassant

I once read a short story by Guy, but I didn’t like it. I thought I’ll give him a second chance with this book. I wanted to watch the movie, but when I saw the leading actors – Robert Pattinson and Uma Thurman – I passed, and decided to watch paint dry instead.ย 

5. The Trial of Gilles de Rais by Georges Bataille

The Trial of Gilles de Rais by Georges Bataille

Gilles de Rais is “The Original Bluebeard” and is considered to be the first serial killer in recorded history. It’s been a while since I’ve read a True Crime, so I’m looking forward to this one.

6. Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life by Justine Picardieย 

Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life by Justine Picardie

This book has been on my TBR for tooooo looooonnnngggg!!

7. Agents of Babylon: What the Prophecies of Daniel Tell Us about the End of Days by Dr. David Jeremiah

Agents of Babylon: What the Prophecies of Daniel Tell Us about the End of  Days by David Jeremiah

This book is not really a one-sitting book as I’ll have to take in and absorb the information presented to take notes, but given the time I have – which is not a lot – it’ll be awesome to read it in one go.

8. Antony and Cleopatra by Adrian Goldsworthy

Antony and Cleopatra by Adrian Goldsworthy

This book… I have so many questions where it concerns Cleopatra’s reign, so I’m hoping that this book can provide answers to some of those questions.ย 

9. Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic

Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic

I simply like Mr. Vujicic, and he’s got a good sense of humor! I’ll love to sit down with this book, perhaps after the reading marathon, and read it in one sitting.

10. A Treasury of Foolishly Forgotten Americans by Michael Farquharย 

A Treasury of Foolishly Forgotten Americans: Pirates, Skinflints, Patriots,  and Other Colorful Characters Stuck in the Footnotes of History by Michael  Farquhar

This book is – hopefully – right up my alley! These are the kind of books I tend to get lost in.ย

VERSE OF THE MONTH (July 2021):  

And rend your heart, and not your garments, 
and turn unto the Lordย your God: 
for he is gracious and merciful, 
slow to anger, 
and of great kindness, 
and repenteth him of the evil.

  1. I recently read The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie. I loved the setting, though I never connected with the characters. I love Crime and Punishment, of course, but Dostoyevsky also has a lot of shorter works like Notes from the Underground if you wanted to try some of his works without having to read some of his massive works. Also, I just got The Maidens from the library. I can’t wait to read it!
