Back in August I made a personal list of 15 books so good you can’t put them down and it became my first official “viral” post with over 65,000 pins and enthusiastic readers commenting with their absolute favorite books.

I was thrilled people were sharing more and more book recommendations because I am always on the search to add books you can put down to my reading list.

Therefore, I am going to share their recommendations with you in a series of posts because there were so many comments!

And again, if you have books you have LOVED, books so good you haven’t been able to put them down, PLEASE comment below so I can keep adding to my list!

Here is Part I:
