Top Ten Tuesday | Recommended Read-a-Thon Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

I can never seem to resist a good read-a-thon. On Monday, the Once Upon A Read-A-Thon begins and I am really excited. Lori (Pure Imagination,) Angela (Reading Angel) and Candace (Candace's Book Blog) are hosting it and yesterday they posted up a few books that they recommend the other participants to check out for read-a-thon's. I decided to play along and recommend a few as well, and while I tried to stay away from contemporary, those are the ones I love most and seem to finish up the quickest. Here are 5 books that I think would be great to read during a read-a-thon:

Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler 
I read this book a few years back and I still treasure it.
It is a fast, emotional read that I adored and definitely recommend.

Leftovers by Laura Wiess
Told from alternating points of view and with a shocking ending,
this is a bit of a mystery that kept me intrigued until the end.

The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
This one is definitely still one of my favorite paranormals.
It has fun characters, action, adventure & more!

If I Stay by Gayle Forman
This one is heartwrenching and will most likely make you cry.
I could not put it down because I became so attached to the story. This is a must read for sure.

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
An incredibly sweet love story that I think everyone should
read. Definitely one of my all time favorites.
