Here are you soon-to-be faves: 1. Only Time Will Tell by Jeffrey Archer View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "It was brilliant. It takes the classic mystery heritage trope and makes it unpredictable. I was actually pretty upset by the time it was done because there's a huge cliffhanger and also, I knew I could never read the book without knowing what happens again."—vitaleiy_kasparov 2. Verity by Colleen Hoover View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "From beginning to end, this novel is absolutely thrilling and draws you in further with every page. The ending is so completely unexpected. I wish I could read it again to experience the utter shock just one more time."—earlgreylady 3. The Red Tent by Anita Diamont View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "It has been my favorite book now for 15+ years. Blew my mind, and I read it every year or so."—dodemeister1 4. We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "My philosophy teacher recommended it. It's kind of slow in the beginning, but the end haunts me. I remember I was in my sophomore year of college and I stayed up late to finish it. By the end I was sobbing and so shaken I couldn't sleep. I feel emotionally exhausted for a week after that. I know that sounds horrible, but any book that brings out those kind of emotions is one I wish I could read again for the first time."—whygirlsareweird 5. Paint it Black by Janet Fitch View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "Total gut punch. It's not a comfortable read, but poetry and tragedy really do it for me, I guess."—gnewmansheets 6. On a Sunbeam by Tillie Walden View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "Great LGBTQ+ cast. Best graphic novel ever!"—goodmoringjustme 7. To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "It was nice to read about a Korean character. I rarely ever see any in books, TV, or movies, and it was nice to see them talk about things I grew up with too — like the yogurt, the food, New Year's, etc."—yazylee 8. The Hunter series by Mercedes Lackey View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "I read all three books in one weekend. I still think it deserves a fourth book, but I loved reading every minute of it."—milettys445 9. Scythe series by Neal Shusterman View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "Those books are absolutely beyond anything I’ve ever read before in terms of being an experience. I remember finishing the third book at 3 a.m. and sobbing because they were over. I would possibly trade my soul to read them for the first time again."—scytheanastasia 10. Greenwood by Michael Christie View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "I have never had such a hard time saying goodbye to a book, but it was worth every single second. The story follows a family through the generations as well as discussing trees, our relationship to nature, family and the way the world is headed if we don’t appreciate nature more for what it is and not what it can give us."—beemoseley 11. A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "This one absolutely floored me with the way those characters became your friends; I have never felt more of a journey than with Jude, Willam, Malcolm and JB. It's a tough read; there are some highs and some (low) lows — I had to stop reading on the tube home from work as it was an emotional journey! But it also helped me acknowledge some parts of my own life that had been a little dark and to seek help. It's not an easy read, but is a deeply necessary one."—mellard86 12. When The Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "I normally hate romances, but the characters and plot were compelling and there were magical elements that almost made it feel like reading a modernized folktale."—starsandspells13 13. Swan Song by Robert McCammon View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "The first line alone is phenomenal: "Once upon a time we had a love affair with fire, the President of the United States thought as the match that he'd just struck to light his pipe flared beneath his fingers." It's about a nuclear war, but more than that. It's as epic (even more so) than The Stand and you really bond with the characters — some evil, some good. I used to read it every other year and I never grow tired of it."—kimmixonh 14. The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "I’m still in mourning that I can never read it for the first time again."—leeeighv 15. The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "A dystopian story that answers the question: What happens when calories [food] become currency? It won the Hugo and Nebula awards. Very imaginative, provocative, and strangely beautifully."—buzz3071 16. A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "Absolutely beautiful writing and characters that will make you smile and cry in equal measures. I still reread it every now and then, but nothing beats the first read-through."—weixin 17. I Found You by Lisa Jewell View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "There’s just something about that book that awakened my love of reading again. I love that book so much I regularly try to think of how the characters lives would play out if she wrote a follow-up. It made me feel all the emotions, from sorrow to happiness."—totesobvibro 18. Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "I was so sad when I finished it because I read it too quickly. All of the characters felt so real to me, including London, which was almost a character in itself. I nearly cried when it ended because I loved it so much. I rarely get to see myself in a book and this made me feel so seen and so valid. Even the cover brings me great joy." —harreymc 19. The Lost Love Song by Minnie Darke View this photo on Instagram instagram.com "I read it in one night! I got it as part of Once Upon a Book Club's subscription box, which meant there were gifts to open while I read it — but I was so into the story that I was completely surprised when the first "open your gift" note game up. Loved it so much that I immediately bought the other book she has out (haven't had time to read that one yet) and had to restrain myself from calling all my friends to describe the entire plot to them."—bulldogfan82 Want more content like this?
