We know you’ve been there. It’s late at night, you have to get up early in the morning, you know you should put down your book and turn out the light but you Just. Can’t. Stop. Reading. It’s delicious torture, isn’t it? A book that won’t let you sleep. Maybe it’s a memoir that makes your mind race after you turn out the light – you can’t stop thinking about the author’s life. Or maybe it’s a thriller that keeps you turning the pages because you have to know what happens next. Or maybe it’s a book that creates an out-of-body experience where you don’t even notice the passage of time. You look at the clock and it’s 10:00pm and the next time you raise your eyes from the page it’s 1:23am and you tell yourself, “Just to the end of this chapter.…” Here are some books that kept us reading way past our bedtime.
