Books you can’t put down



It’s wonderful to find a book you want to get back to all the time, when you resent every minute you can’t spend reading it. Here’s some recommendations from readers at Abe books. I get a lot of mail from Abe. I’d prefer it if they’d use the energy to update their clunky website.

I notice that someone picks a novel by Somerset Maugham, recently discussed on Cornflower. Last year, I couldn’t put down The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, the first Flavia de Luce book by Alan Bradley. Three years ago it was The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penney, which I read during one sleepless night.
A gripping story seems to be the secret. Do you have any 'couldn't put it down' recommendations?
