100 Books You Can't Put Down

Oh the joy of discovering a book you just… can't… put… down. I have a profound memory of being 12 years old and reading the mystical children's book, When Marnie Was There by Joan G. Robinson (now out of print). I tried to read it slowly to stretch out the adventure, but I couldn't stop. And I will never forget how I cried when I was finished. I cried not necessarily because it was a sad book, but because the adventure was over.
I have been lucky to read many books I just can't put down. Below is a list of 100 Books You Can't Put Down, compiled from both your recommendations as well as suggested titles from our HPB Bibliomaniacs.
