Recommended Reading for the Once Upon a Readathon

Hello all my lovely readers, the Once Upon a Readathon is nearly upon us and it’s time for doing some recommended reading posts for all of you!  Today I’m recommending a few books, tomorrow is Angela at Reading Angel and Friday Lori at Pure Imagination will post her recommendations.  Are you all signed up for the Readathon?  Well if your not you’d better get on that!  It starts next Monday and runs through Wednesday.  Go sign up HERE.  

There are a couple books that came out recently that I LOVED and have to mention.
The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder is in verse and only takes about an hour to read.  All her books are wonderful but for now I’m going to recommend this one. It takes place at the beach and is a wonderful and romantic perfect summer read.  You can find it on Goodreads HERE.  

The next book I’m going to suggest is not in verse but it took me less then a day to read (that’s a normal day, you know, caring for kids, etc).  It sucks you in and it’s impossible to put down until you finish.  It’s A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young.  You can find it on Goodreads HERE.

This next one is another one that is a perfect summer read.  It takes place on a beach and has characters that I just thought were over the top amazing.  It’s Moonglass by Jessi Kirby.  You can find it on Goodreads HERE.  

Another YA that was fast and has a bit of a different theme from these others I’ve mentioned is Zombies Don’t Cry by Rusty Fisher.  You can find it on Goodreads HERE

A few adult books that were pretty fast reads that I LOVED were Hounded by Kevin Hearne,  Dead Girls are Easy by Terri Garey, and Attachments by Rainbow Rowell.
Hounded: The Iron Druid Chronicles Dead Girls Are Easy (Nicki Styx, Book 1)  Attachments 
My list could really go on and on, that’s just a few that I think are must reads.  I tried to vary the genre’s a little bit so there’s something for everyone.  Do you have recommendations of your own?  Please feel free to comment with them or make your own post.  Please be sure to link to the Readathon if you do so!  And to let me know, of course!
Thanks for subscribing!


  1. An amazing book that only took me a day to read was Firelight by Sophie Jordan. It pulls you in at the very beginning and won’t let go until you’re finished

  2. I need to get my read-a-thon books all sorted out by Sunday night, so I’m not just grabbing at my bookshelves once Monday rolls around. I think I’ll have to read Moonglass though because I know it’s not long and I want to start off with a nice, short book, so I can feel accomplished quickly :)

    Thanks for the recs!
