I discovered this link, 40 Books You Won’t Be Able to Put Down, on pinterest (yes, while I was supposed to be reading, but even a book lover needs to make time for pinterest). Of course I clicked hastily ready to see if it was proved true and to my surprise it was- or at least for the most part.
I have not read every book on the list so I can not account for each one but the ones I have read I 110% concur. Which makes me think that the other books on the list also hold true to the title of this post. (I hope).
However, there are some gaping holes in the list; excellent novels that I deem worthy of such list are: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and finally (but not least) The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffeneger. All are not only highly entertaining novels but true pieces of literature (and yes, I realize they could all by considered girly books but that tends to happen due to the fact that I am-dramatic gasp-a girl but I do promise that those of the male gender can appreciate them too).
So I’ve added my picks to the list now its your turn. What do you think is missing and are there any books on the list that need to get their butts out of there? Let me know what you think while I (promise to) finish The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. Happy Reading!
P.S.- Here are some reviews of my (grand) picks!
