Immersive Books for That Ultimate Escape-From-Reality Feeling

"The books on the list are ones I read and put down, only to feel that the real world in front of me was a little greyer with the story over. Sometimes these books have stayed with me for years, occupying a little corner of my heart. For most, I have never read them a second time because the first experience was pure perfection.
Immersive books remind my cynical self that stories are absolutely a form of magic. If you're a reader, something in this description might be clicking with you — but maybe you've not had that elusive joy yet, in which case I hope this list proves a gateway." - Aisling Twomey/Book Riot
