The Special List–Books that Grab You and Never Let Go

Filed under: Reading

It’s the season for nominees and awards and I just finished reading CODE NAME VERITY by Elizabeth Wein and realized that I have my own private sort of award’s list of special books. What is my special list? It’s not a tangible Goodreads list, although I guess it could be. It’s really more like an internal classification. It’s for the books that turn my world upside down. There are lots of books that I LOVE for a variety of different reasons that don’t make my special list. It’s not that they aren’t a variety of wonderful things, but this list–my special list— is for the stories that haunt me.  It’s for the ones that never leave me. With the special list, I can never stop thinking about them or their authors. They are the authors who I have a love/hate relationship with. I adore them, I am in awe of them and  I’m terrified that  I can never be them. But yet, I still adore them.

These are some of the books on my special list…

These were in no particular order and this is far from being a complete list. But it’s an appetizer LOL! What is on your special list? What books grab you and never let go?
