The weather is getting colder and the nights are getting longer, so what better time than to snuggle inside and read an entire book in a single sitting? Okay, maybe not necessarily a single sitting, but there’s something really fun about inhaling large chunks of a book really quickly, and lately I’ve been enjoying the fast paced nature of YA books set over the course of a single day/night. These three books largely take place in a 24 hour time period, which is an exciting feat of plotting and pacing! They also make me happy that I’m at home in my PJs, and if I want to stay up late it’s because I want to squeeze in one more chapter!
