Ingrid's Top Ten Books To Read in a Day

There's nothing that feels quite as great as reading one whole book in a single day. For this week's Top Ten Tuesday, here are my ten favorites that could be read in a day. They're short and they're good.

If you want something with a surprise ending that makes you think, read Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton

If you want some to make you crave a nice cup of tea, read The Book of Tea by Kakuzo Okakura 

If you want something beautifully written to savor slowly, read Memories of My Melancholy Whores by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

If you want something feminist-y and empowering, read A Room of One's Own by Virgina Woolf

If you feel like improving yourself, read As A Man Thinketh by James Allen

If you want something Chinese with a good story, read Raise the Red Lantern by Su Tong

If you want a good old-fashioned survival story, read Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

If you want something weird and drug-induced, read The Doors Of Perception by Aldous Huxley

If you want something serious, read Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl

If you want some WW1 action, read All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

What are some of your favorite books that could be read in one day?
