Can't-Put-It-Down Reads

It doesn't happen as often as I wish it did but every so often I get ahold of a book that does not want to be put down. I've been known to get so wrapped up in a book that I fall asleep reading and only the sensation of the darned thing slipping from my hands wakes me. In many ways I suppose it's good not every book does this to me or I'd be a zombie most days. ;)

But what is it about a book that makes it so hard to put down? We can't blame it on additives the way we can fast foods and sodas. lol I think for me it is very much a combination of two things that make a great formula. Interesting Potagonist + Solid Plot = Who Needs Sleep?

So last night I started Pride the third Werecats book by Rachel Vincent. I've been looking forward to this book for so long but haven't had time to start reading it yet since I had review copies of other books to work on first. I put it down around page 82 or so and turned out the lights. Unfortunately I didn't make it five minutes before I was up hanging my head over the sink (the sink? yes the sink... I didn't make it to the toilet, yay for pregnancy!). Now anyone who's ever experienced a late night (non-drunken) vomiting session likely knows how hard it is to fall back asleep after that. After a thorough brushing I was back in bed and tossing and turning. And wouldn't ya know that damn book kept whispering sweet nothings to me?

Needless to say I had to force myself to put the book down when the clock reminded me I had to get up in four hours. Ugh. Rotten things, clocks. 152 pages down...

Anyone else read any hard to put down books lately?

How to Knit a Wild Bikini by Christie Ridgway. The book has gotten some pretty lukewarm reviews on Goodreads and Amazon, but I absolutely loved it. It was darn near impossible for me to quit reading each night, and it just earned a spot on my Keeper shelf.

wcvamp -- I refused to buy Bone Crossed until it hits paperback. I hate the size change issue though the price change is a little bit of a factor. I hope it was really good! Have you checked out the Mercy Thompson comic at all yet? I finally got my #2 issue and it was reeeeeally good.

JenB -- hehe that title sounds... hmmm... interesting. But ya know, that just goes to show that one woman's 2 star is another woman's 5 star. Definitely all a matter of opinions. Isn't it just the best feeling to finish a book and go "oh this is sooo a Keeper!"?
