This is how I know I’m reading an incredible book. All of the day’s obligations — making my bed, walking to the subway, cooking diner — become obstacles that stand between me and the story's conclusion. If I could, I would dip out of life, and spend the day racing to the back cover. Luckily for me, and unfortunately for my obligations, there is an endless supply of really, really, ridiculously good books.
Looking ahead to 2018, it's definite that our Goodreads queues will be getting a whole lot longer. These are the books you'll want to escape into when you're having a hard day. These are the books that will stimulate your mind and give you talking points to whip out at awkward parties. These are the books you'll love so much that you'll buy copies for your friends.
