Editorial Reviews

It is one of slightly faded glory, often tacky, tatty or quaint, but full of opportunities for vivid imagery that speaks to all the senses. There are the smells of fish and chips and sun cream, the noise of the fairgrounds and arcades, the taste of ice cream and salty seawater, the feel of sand between the toes or waves in the face. The stories are full of contrasts that constantly surprise and entertain: The sea itself provides a wealth of sensations and stirs up deep desires in the psyche.

The seaside becomes a place between worlds, a special place of freedom and escape. In many of the stories, it is a place where a woman can set out quite deliberately to get laid with no strings attached in a much more picturesque setting than a nightclub toilet. This is a real gem among erotica anthologies.

The BritBabes have done it again! I never pictured the sea to be so erotic. What is it about the sand? I guess I need to move to the coast to find out. There are 14 great story lines in this compilation. Each story left you wanting more and it did not disappoint. Beware this book may have you screaming in ecstasy so please try not to read in public! Congratulations to Victoria Blisse and Lucy Felthouse for choosing the stories wisely.

If you like short erotic stories than this book is the one The BritBabes have done it again! If you like short erotic stories than this book is the one for you. I received this book as a review copy in return for an honest review If you want to check out more BritBabes books check the link below. Jun 28, Jacqueline Brocker added it Shelves: A fun and frisky collection of smutty stories, all set by the seaside.

There is very much a British slant in terms of location, but the stories venture further afield, and in time too. My one tiny bugbear; a fact-check in one of the stories could have prevent an iPhone from showing up in Jun 14, Beate marked it as i-want-you-to-want-me.

Not a 24 hour read—but well worth the time. People are loving this Facebook post and all the great shares. SO many amazing books. Thanks for inspiring it: Jemisin Person recommended pretty much anything the author writes How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America by Kiese Laymon Said it was her best read in all of As someone said on the Facebook post, that is one badass list.

And folks can alternate, if they choose, to take in more of the richness of writers in America. Thanks to those who are actually open and interested in doing this. I hope you find some great reads on all these lists. I can never put her books down and tend to reread them! I highly suggest it! You are absolutely right. I responded above to Brandyn, but wanted to make sure you saw that comment. I totally agree Sarah D. If a book sounds good I read it.

The color of the author never even crosses my mind! I read for the story! Add to this Girl on Train. The movie was good but the book is incredible. I love this list and will look for these. I feel the same way! Loved Girl on a Train. A must-read and one I hope they make into a movie. I loved this book! Both are amazing books! Talk about plot twists! I was reading the same ideas over and over.

I pay more attention to the authors I choose now, and my reading lists is much healthier because of it—and my world view more complete. I promise this is my very last comment. And how smart you are, Criss! I just tripped over this post that listed 34 books by Women of Color. And from that piece: Inclusion has real consequences. They are all new releases for Added them to my long long TBR list. This list is may cause my TBR to topple over! A few years ago I read The secret keeper by Kate Morton and loved it!!

Well written and suspenseful right to the final chapter. The Secret Keeper was very good! My all time favorite is September by Rosamunde Pilcher. Like most of her books it makes one long to be in the Scottish countryside. More of a character study than a driving plot. Also excellent was Shell Seekers. I loved Shell Seekers too. Pilcher is an excellent writer, well able to reel you into a new world. I think her The Secret Place is just as good. Both are about friendship—it seems to be what she does best. I just joined today so I will be adding more titles that I love. This novel managed to break my heart then patch it up only to make my heart get back in the ring for round two.

I read this books years ago and still I recommend it to everyone. Definitely one of those that touch your heart and linger near your soul.

Oh how I loved this book. I listened to it and the two readers were amazing. A must read or listen!! Portrayed complicated people with kindness. Also listened to the audiobook. Frederik Backman is a magical writer! I cannot stop thinking about Ove! I just came across this page from someone that shared this on Facebook, and boy I must say I am so happy to have stumbled upon that link and your blog!

What a homey and cozy feel you have here, and I will be sure to check your entires day after day. The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. The writing style and the story of this memoir make it absolutely un-putdownable. Just saved your list to come back to. Also, not a mystery, but gripping, is my memoir about fighting cancer during my first pregnancy: Tiger in rather Dark.

Liked reading many of the comments on the different selections. I may have to try a few. I love to read books relating to Holocaust and that sad era. If anyone knows of any plese tell me titles. The boy in the striped pajamas. From Cardinals to Crows by T. The author is a personal friend of mine. The Girl in the Train — Paula Hawkins. You are right-on about these — I read 3 of them in the last 5 days! And have another to pick up at the library tonight.

I just picked up that book from library yesterday to read for my mystery books for March. Hope I like it. Behind Closed Doors by P. I definitely finished it the same day that I started. I was like this with Summer Sisters by Judy Blume. I recommend it to everyone! It was unputdownable by many reviewers on Goodreads and Amazon! What a great list! Not only were half of these book already on my list, but almost all of these books are written by women! I would add these to the list: Love this list — great books for my daily walks in the woods.

Hopefully that means you get credit for recommending them. Super Powereds and Red Rising are my all time favorites. Time just flew by listening to these books. I found it at a thrift store. Available via bookstores or Amazon. Amazing story of a family on a journey of grief and healing. Perhaps the best description is given by Sister Helen Prejean, C. A heart-wrenching and ultimately redemptive family drama of forgiveness, destiny, and the true nature of justice.

This family drama is a must-read that teaches us about the true nature of justice and our very humanity. I was left breathless by the end. Not only was this an amazing read, it revolutionized my life, as well. I could not put down The Bookshop on the Corner by J. Colgan and Murder at the Brightwell by A.

Looking forward to the others in this series. The Gifting by K. I got it free from Amazon but will definitely be buying the other books in the trilogy. Think Frank Peretti or Stephen King but not as heavy. I have found almost every single one of the Ian Rutledge mysteries by Charles Todd to be un-put-downable. I rarely sit down and read a book in one sitting but yesterday I almost finished The Dry.

I think you recommended this book on one of your podcasts. You said Reese Weatherspoon bought the movie rights before it even went to press. In the my comment I was using voice text. Great list, read 3 on this list and put 3 more on hold at the library. My 24 hour reads are always Michael Connelly and Karin Slaughter. Yellow Crocus, Laila Ibrahim — historical fiction about a Southern black woman working for wealthy Plantation owners. Could not put down! And although it took me a little longer than that, because of work, I tore through The Royal We, too.

Great book quick read.

Can not put it down. Something that I cannot stand is when chapters alternate between different characters points of view. You should try Dolores Claiborne by Stephen King…. An oldie but a goodie. Each has been memorable. Took me longer than 24 hours because frankly, it often made me uncomfortable. Very timely subject matter, exploring racism and white supremacy with an unforgettable story.

Months later… I am still pondering this book. It will leave you with a respect for our Military. Love,Water,Memory by Jennie Shortridge. Reading this was a wonderful way to get lost in a weekend spent turning pages! Have read it at least 10 times and shared with many friends over the years. Reading again this weekend.

I Love, love, love the Proud Breed.

Smut by Karina Halle

I too have read many times and passed along to friends. I currently have two hard copies one to keep and one to give away. I called her Sombrawolfdog. Both excellent in their own right. The ending is so totally unexpected! Natchez Burning by Greg Iles is amazing!!! Your suggestions, and those in the comments, have helped me put my summer reading list together!! Just did not like it at all. Stunningly beautiful prose,and I actually learned things about the Russian Revolution. I like this Second Towles better than Rules. A Gentleman in Moscow was my favorite book last year. Have you started savoring Dickens yet?

Did anybody feel the same? One of my many favorites of last year. Thanks for the recommendations. I wish there was more of it! It is a classy classic horror story unlike anything you have ever read. Very well written and full of Southern lifestyles and elegance. He knows his setting well, too. This is one of the best and most unsettling books I have read. He is or was one of the ten or so masters of the genre.

Not sure how I stumbled across this post, but thanks! I had read a few of these and enjoyed them, so downloaded a couple of these as audiobooks and have loved them! I only listen to books or I would never get anything done. I too, came across this site and am downloading as many books as I can. Listening to What She Knew, which someone on here recommended.

Hi Sandy, I use Overdrive a lot. I have several library cards. I also find a lot online at torrent sites. Keep your head up there for a while longer and keep looking. The rest of us will have a civilized conversation. The Hearts of Horses by Molly Gloss is very good. Of course it depends on what you like. I found it touching and interesting. She meets a lot of people and the experiences she has help her grow. You can check it out on Amazon. I like stories about horses and that surround horses or contain horses and stories about other times and stories about women who do things differently.

I hope you give it a try! But the books… until 3am reading for sure on the first 2 or 3 in the series. Unfortunately outlander took me months to read! I found them very slow reads and not one you can read in 24 hours. Even switching to audio it took me weeks to finish the book. Well, different strokes for different folks, I always say. The first book was good but the 2nd book just dragged for me!

Hated the second book of the series…took me forever to finish. Finally, just skipped parts. The rest of the series is great. Many readers had some trouble with book 2 and stopped reading the series. They are missing out on a great epic story. They are thick books…. I found them very compelling…and hard to put down though, even then it does take more than a day to read. But I read the first one in about 3 days which is quick for a page book! I did find a couple of titles on your list I will try though! I always like to see what others put on their great reads list.

Have your read any Jodi Picoult? Jodi picoult what I read were very good. I loved the storyteller that was the first one I read by her. I did like the tv show though. My Sisters Keeper is one of my all time favorites. So different from the movie. I love how all her books have a surprising twist! The Storey teller was a great book! I just finished SmalGreat Things by the same author. I found it to be a good read. I have also been hooked on Jojo Moyes and enjoyes reading all the books I could find by her. The first Outlander was amazing. To me, they got steadily worse and repetitive after the first one.

Funny, I was able to put Dark Matter down. I agree the Fault In Our Stars was great! Since you enjoyed that try Picoults My Sisters Keeper. You will laugh you will cry! The whole series is amazing. Have you read Memoirs of a Geisha? Compelling, tragic but so satisfying to read! I reread it every few years-so good! I find Chris Bojalian books to be hour page turners for sure. They are though provoking, suspenseful, but very sophisticated and detailed. I also love that most of his books are set either in rural Vermont or the hip city of Burlington, VT.

I just read The Wonder by Emma Donoghue in 24 hours and came to this post to see if it was on the list. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Francine Rivers is my absolute favorite Christian writer! Read in 24 hours or less. And any book by Laine Moriarty. Every one of hers I can never stop!! SO FUN to come across a list like this. Though The City, also by Dean Koontz took a few days, it was an excellent read! My newest unputdownable was very long, but so good. Edgar and Lucy by Victor Lodato. I just finished A Man Called Ove.

It was one of my favorite books of all time. Go read it or listen to it on Audible…the narrator is fabulous! All three I have read and I highly recommend all. We discussed A J Fikry at my book club. Read Guernsey a long time ago but I liked it. Listening to A Man Called Ove right now and love it.

Find myself chuckling outloud as a I am out walking the dog! My sister and I executed a one week, self-planned trip to Guernsey based on our total enjoyment of this book! Not even sure if I took a bathroom break. Read any book by Edward Bunker. My list of authors: Once I finish up this series I plan to read some of her others, she has written many.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. By far my favorite read in a long time. Completely un-put-down-able Loved Ove as well! I read it a few months ago — mixed the title up with another one! Had to get through to stop worrying and feeling scared, and every other emotion! Read in 24 hours — I could not sleep until I finished it! It chronicles the life of a gal named Lucy, whose parents marry her off at 15 in the year to a 50 year old Civil War vet.

Favorite of all time. I started 23 years ago. The audible versions by Davinia Porter are amazing. My husband would never read them, but we are now listening to book 5. Fate Ball by Adam W. Jones Fantastic debut novel about love and loving someone with an addiction. A quick read and a powerful story. Aw I love this! Not a traditional book club but one for chitchat about books being read! I have read everything she has written but Three Wishes touched home for me the most followed by Big Little Lies.

Nothing better than a good book. Anything by Charles Martin is awesome! What an incredible story!!!! I listened to this book!! The readers were two women and did an unbelievable job. Not to mention that the story was incredible. I felt like I was in the car with them. Another incredible listen is Story Hour. Speak by Lauri Halse Anderson. My daughter had to read it for school. We ended up with an extra copy. I started reading it before I went to worked and finished it that night. A Man Called Ove — I listened to it on audiobook and then reread it because it was sooo good.

I am reading Beartown, the latest book, read the first three and the short one on saying goodbye…had no problems with the others. This one is more difficult, the theme is much deeper than hockey, but all the hockey references slow me down! Loved Little Big Lies…and anything else by Moriarity. Just finished Hillbilly Elegy—a must read about a very poor segment of society. Also like The Girl in Cabin Ten. Some books I could hardly put down: BTW, there was also a movie made, and I was surprised at how good it was.

Lots of details were left out, but whoever wrote the screenplay did an amazing job. One of my all time favorites as well. I loved this book, but hated the ending to the movie. I thought the ending of the book was perfection. Wow, three of the four you have above are also my all time favorites. I still miss PK and Owen! I listen to my books, a long commute.

See a Problem?

I received it as a gift from someone who knew I loved to read but not sure what I liked to read. Same person gave me The Power of One. She is now my source of must have books. She is now my source for must have books. Some great books on this list! Another author I breeze through because their just that good is anything by Jessica gadziala.

Both are so good but I could not put Shifting down and I have a hard time getting into anything else. The Art of Racing in the Rain, is probably one of my all time favorites! Love dogs, loved the story, cried a lot. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern was so compelling that I read it for two days straight, hardly taking a moment to sleep!

Oh to be loved like she was!!! I raced through Inconceivable by Tegan Wren. Would these books be good for a 16yo? Mainly avoiding graphic sexual content and super strong language? It is fiction based on a true happening…a horrific fire in that burned much of coastal Maine.

I highly recommend it! Janet Evanovich — Stephanie Plum Series, have been reading this series for over 17 years, still makes me laugh out loud! All of Elin Hilderbran. The first book I remember reading in one sitting was The Color Purple. I had bought it the day before and that Saturday morning I picked it up to read a bit while having my coffee. I absolutely could not stop reading…no chores done that day! Horrible user experience, kick them off your ad program! But thanks for the list. I would buy a few of them but my eyes are blinked by the rapid blinking of the ad.


  • Codex Cospi.
  • Concerto in B Minor, Op. 3, No. 10, RV580 from.
  • Customers who bought this item also bought?

I will come back later! Some of them sound good. You need an ad block plug in or at least I think that is the proper term- but I know EXACTLY what you are talking about and an add blocker allows you to control what is popping up or blinking or flashing or scrolling or flapping and squalling… and generally interfering with your ability to focus on the content that you wish to enjoy. I wish you well, content warrior! If you use Firefox, Ad Block Plus is an awesome ad blocker. Try Firefox or Chrome. Read each one in a day or less.

Going to see what our library has from your list, I rarely buy books anymore. Over 13, reviews on Amazon. Her story is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. I loved that one too! Some people in my book club had trouble keeping the characters straight but I enjoyed it. But it was really interesting and well thought out. I am staying away from The Lake House based on the description. Another great and spooky read is Graveminder by Melissa Marr, and anything Alice Clayton reads is instantly devoured by me. Great list—What Alice Forgot is great. All of the women are dirt poor in the midst of the Great Depression.

Many are Native American. It is a non-fiction book that reads like fiction. I could not get past the first 60 pages. I tried I really really did, but every time I went to pick it up I was dreading it. I made it to page 60 and declared it a good attempt. I have recommended it countless times.

I prefer fast paced books, something that keeps me coming back for more. Thought it was overhyped. I LOVED Arthur, I had to wait a couple days to read another book after finishing because I just wanted to think about this book for a while and mourn the characters being over for me! I stayed up 2 nights way too late to read it just because I felt so good while reading the book.

Sister, Sister by Sue Forten was a great way to spend time on a plane. Layla Hagen- has a series about the Bennett family. Each book I have read in a day. I love the series and each book individually. The Rosie Project drew me in immediately, and The Paris Architect kept me thinking about it after it was finished. Loving Frank made me do some research. Bittersweet by La Toya T Haynes! Read in a day….

Unputdownable: 17 books I read in 24 hours or less (because they were just that good)

Love a good contemporary romance novel. Thanks for the great list! It truly moved me. Not a horror theme and totally compelling from start to finish. I am just amazed anyone can finish a book in an afternoon!!! You ladies are amazing. Goodness Falls by Ty Roth is a great one-afternoon read! One of my favorite books! We Were Liars by E. Lockhart is also an excellent book; I read it in two days. I read Of Sand and Ash and cant stop thinking about it. Beautifully written and both a romance and a history lesson.

I just read I am the messenger by Markus Zusak. Oooh this looks goood! Will check some more on this list. Susan Meissner A Fall of Marigolds is a new favorite author of mine. She does her research and weaves it beautifully into her story! They must all be good because my library was out of ALL of them!

It was so good I could not put it away! Ride in the squad car from the comfort of your favorite reading chair. It is a story about rescuing a baby wild blue jay and the family that raised and released him. He comes back everyday as the Mom has Ovarian Cancer. As the author says by the end you will wonder just who saved who!

It is available on Amazon and kindle too. Riddle book if you found that one sci-first intresting. His sci-fi novels have this awesome Clive Cussler feel to them and will definitely keep you in suspense. Great for a quick read on a portable. A fun little tale about the adventures of a Wish Facilitator. You have excellent taste. Every single book by Colleen Hoover! Her books are just that good! She really drags you into them and connects you with the characters. I was excited to find this list- I have it on my fridge! So far I liked You let me go a lot! And You will know me, enjoyed as well.

Plus I mostly listen on audio , so maybe that contributed. Seemed everyone loved that book but me. Thanks for the great ideas!!! Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders. I read it a few weeks ago, and now I want to re-read it slowly to savor it. Just love love love them. I bought it for a plane ride; I was up early and thought I would read and sleep, but that was before I read the first chapter.

I finished it six hours later as we landed. I started telling my family all about it, only to find they had been passing around their copies to each other and friends. These 2 books led me to reading everything that Liane Moriarty has published. Looking forward to the other books. I will load some on my Kindle. Liane Moriarity has become my new favorite author!!! Which one did you enjoy more? I love this list and thanks for the feedback , What Alice Forgot will be my next one..

Hi Paige, I only listen to books because I need to multitask. I listened to What Alice Forgot and loved it. I believe if the narrator is good it makes the book even better. Very helpful and I will check those out as well. Available through Amazon and well worth the read. My new favourite author. In a dark, dark wood. A book you could read in 24hrs also.

Thought I would share. It will become part of my summer reading list. Just finished in 48 hours. It was that good. Also a YA novels that probably appeals as much to adults as teens. Thanks for the suggestions! Read it in 24 hours. We read it for Book Club and we all agreed it was contrived…definitely not one of his best. Luckily, I had asked an expert to speak about human trafficking who made the reading more worth while. Guest Room is better than his newest one Sleepwalker, but the new one is still a great read! I second that suggestion! Loved the complex, believable characters in the backdrop of World War II.

You can find it on Amazon. There is some difficult subject matter relating to genocide. OMG it was so good. One to tetras every summer. I love books by Amy Harmon. I read Sand and Ash in about 8 hours. Her characters are always amazing! Working on a few of them as I write this comment, but mostly just excited to go out there and buy a few new ones, thank you for sharing! Just discovered Julia Keller.

A Killing in the Hills. Now onto Bitter River…slower but really good. Loved Rules of Civility! Amor Towles is a genius. Highly recommend A Gentleman in Moscow, sublime story and characters. All of the books that I have read by the author Sharon Sala I have had real problems putting them down until I am finished. Ever read the Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell? Dark Matter was fantastic! Thanks for the suggestion.

Really liked What Alice Forgot up til the end. Then it got wonky. Love Josephine Tey but her books are so hard to find! YA fantasy with adventure, a spirited heroine, and lots of fun! This is the 1st in a trilogy; 2 will be out May ! I think I had my roommates wait until I finished I may have driven us there! It was my intro to Vonnegut. Provenance by Donna Drew Sawyer. I got blindsided so many times I read the book in two and a half hours. Also read Behind Closed Doors yesterday in one sitting.

That one literally had me jumping out of my skin. The Passenger by Lisa Lutz!! Came out last year but I just discovered it. The Passenger indeed — you become the passenger and this is one heck of a ride!! I have never read a book in 24 hours in my life!! News of the World is the best book I read all year. Angels and Demons by Dan Brown was like this for me. I read it non-stop this summer in any free time I had during and after my internship.

A classic and fantastic book. I was excited to see Sleeping Giants on your list! Have you read the sequel? I might have liked it even more! I also read What She Knew very quickly.. I do not read a lot of thrillers but I really enjoyed that one! Have read sea of tranquility like times and can always pick it up on a day when the mood for moody teenagers hits…. It is a quirky fun book that left me wanting more. I was just going to read a chapter or two but the intertwining of her personal story and her experience with helping these refugees that she met on public transportation was so compelling that I finally was able to shut of my light and go to sleep at 3 AM after finishing the book in one sitting.

The book has made me look at refugees and the difficulties that they face in a whole new light. I absolutely loved Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson. I started it a bedtime and finished about 4am. I already plan on reading it again! Thank you for your recommendations! Reading keeps me sane! YES- for Susan Meissner!

Really enjoyed The Great Alone, a novel about a family that goes to Alaska—but so much more than that. Woman in the Window was also a good read—a modern Rear Window. I am halfway down this list and they have every one been unputdownable. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Your email address will not be published. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. You can also subscribe without commenting. You Will Know Me Author: Abbott has a reputation for writing nail-biters but this is the first of her work I read.

In her newest release, she builds her domestic suspense around an elite teen gymnast—an excellent backdrop for a creepy mystery because in this high-stakes world people will stop at almost nothing to get what they want. Abbott kept me guessing the whole way through: Recommended reading for fans of Mary Kubica and Gillian Flynn. What Alice Forgot Author: Moriarty's works are compulsively readable: I spreed through this like it was the fluffiest chick lit, but found myself mulling over its themes for weeks after I finished.

Rules of Civility Author: This Gatsby-esque novel plunges you into the streets of Manhattan, circa The girls vie for his affection—until one impulsive decision changes everything. A beautifully drawn story of wealth and class, luck and fate, love and illusion. The Thousand Dollar Tan Line: The story starts ten years after Veronica's high school graduation, a few months after the movie left off.

Veronica is called in to investigate when a girl disappears from a Spring Break party, but it soon becomes apparent this is no ordinary missing persons case, and Veronica is quickly pulled back into Neptune's seedy underworld. This wasn't high literature or anything, but it was so much fun and had such good narrative drive I didn't want to stop until I knew how it ended. A Fall of Marigolds Author: I know a lot of Susan Meissner fans, and many of those readers cite this one as their favorite.

The action goes back and forth in time between two women, a century apart, who are linked by a beautiful scarf and by their unlikely survival in two devastating tragedies in New York City. Meissner's tone makes this an easy, enjoyable read despite the tough subject matter, making it easy to polish off in a day. This fast-moving, cinematic thriller begins when the protagonist is kidnapped on his way home from meeting a friend, and is asked a strange question by his strangely familiar captor: Imagine the zaniness of Ready Player One , minus the video games or nostalgia trip. Good as Gone Author: I devoured this in one sitting.

Usually I don't think the premise sells the book, but this one does: Julie was kidnapped from her own home when she was thirteen, and eight years later, the mystery is unsolved. Her family assumes the worst but can't be sure. Then one day, the doorbell rings, and it's Julie.

But as she settles in to her new, old family, inconsistencies begin to emerge in her story. Why would she lie? Is it really her? I couldn't resist turning the pages until I found out for myself. I never, and I mean never, would have picked this up on my own, and was surprised to love it.

Flash forward a few decades, and scientists begin to discover more body parts all over the globe. But with its interesting structure and strong narrative drive, it works. I hear the full cast audio recording is terrific. I Let You Go Author: It's trendy these days for every suspense novel to have a "shocking plot twist! I was stunned as I slowly came to see that the story wasn't about what I thought it was about at all, and THAT is what you'll be burning to talk about.
