“Sleep? I do not understand her.” —Your bookshelf, most likely.

We just recently asked our BuzzFeed Neighborhood, “What is one book that is so great you actually COULD NOT put it down?” and their responses were so freakin’ excellent, they motivated a lot more unbelievable actions. Here are simply a few of the books that are seriously un-put-down-able:


We Have Actually Constantly Resided In the Castle by Shirley Jackson

Penguin Classics

“It’s the strangest book I have actually ever checked out. It’s a haunted home story without any ghosts. I read it in one day, thought of it, and after that check out the whole book once again the next.”



The Shadow and Bone series by Leigh Bardugo

Macmillan Publishers

“It’s so excellent AND it’s getting a Netflix program set to premiere later on this year, so now’s the time to read them!”



Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

Broadway Books

“I might NOT put it down, and I was so unfortunate when I completed it.”



It Ends with United States by Colleen Hoover

Atria Books

“This is my all-time preferred book. It’s fantastic. Everybody must read it a minimum of when. It’s an excellent story with an excellent lesson.”



Continue by Rainbow Rowell

Wednesday Books

“This one is my preferred current read (and is most likely in my leading 5 preferred books ever). It’s actually comparable to Harry Potter. The author initially composed a book called Fangirl, which has to do with a woman who composes fanfiction about a popular book series. Rowell then chose to make her own imaginary book series genuine. I 100% suggest it. I truthfully choose it over Harry Potter now. Likewise, it has excellent LGBTQ representation!”



The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern


“I completed this one in 4 days. The day I completed it was the day after my birthday, which had actually been extremely hectic and difficult — so I wound up taking the entire day of rest and simply check out for like 10 hours directly. I was up till about 2: 30 a.m., however it was absolutely worth it!”



The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan


“When I initially began the series, I simply kept going and going up until I reached The Last Olympian. I make a point to re-read them all a minimum of two times a year now, with Heroes of Olympus and Trials of Apollo contributed to the rotation.”



The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt

Little bit, Brown and Business

“I read it over a two-day duration one Christmas…I simply could not put it down.”



The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware

Gallery/Scout Press

“I have a hard time to complete books nowadays, regardless of having actually been a substantial reader as a kid and presently being an English instructor. If I don’t complete it in a couple of sittings, I simply don’t complete. NEVERTHELESS, I just recently discovered this book and I burned through it! It’s a thriller fiction about a girl who has actually simply lost her mom in an auto accident and is having a hard time to keep their house and tarot store on the boardwalk. When she wrongly gets a substantial inheritance, she believes it’s the response to her issues and thinks she can fool her method into keeping it. If you like Agatha Christie, you will LIKE this book.”



A Witch in Time by Constance Sayers


“I just recently read this one, and it was among the most initial books I have actually checked out in a while. I check out the entire book in less than a day.”



Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Ballantine Books

“This one definitely blew my mind. I made everybody I understood read it so we might speak about it. Extremely suggest!”



Midnight for Charlie Bone by Jenny Nimmo

Orchard Books

“For anybody trying to find a YA book with a lots of follows up, attempt one! You may take a look at it and believe ‘It’s simply Harry Potter,’ however it’s method more Roald Dahl than J.K. Rowling. It’s a well-written series, the characters are wonderful, and the tradition is beyond anything you’d anticipate from a kids series!”



The Caraval trilogy by Stephanie Garber

Flatiron Books

“I hadn’t check out anything beyond school texts for many years, and it had me HOOKED! A strange moving carnival/celebration filled with dream and magic, plus a fascinating cast? I couldn’t put it down! When Finale came out, I finished the entire 500-some pages in one day. I loved the ever-developing lore, and the villains especially! I know he’s a bad guy, but I still wish the Prince of Hearts would whisk me away…”



If I Am Missing or Dead by Janine Latus

Simon & Schuster

“This remains one of the most riveting books I’ve ever read. It’s a memoir that weaves together both her and her sister’s lives as they endure different abusive relationships, despite the different lives they lead. It’s absolutely heartbreaking, but incredibly important. I think everyone should read it at least once. There is some strong language if that bothers you, and some of the events can be quite triggering — but I can honestly say that it was a book I couldn’t put down.”



And finally — of course — the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins

Scholastic Press

“Okay, but how wasn’t this series in the original list?! I finished the entire series in three days!”
