11 Books You Wish Would Never End

That feeling of falling truly, madly, deeply in love with a book is worth every last bit of the heartache. Here are 11 books to rush into with open arms. Just know that each will break your heart when they leave you.

1. Ella Enchanted' by Gail Carson Levine
I’m actually a fan of Anne Hathaway, but it took a long time for me to forgive her for starring in the atrocious adaptation of my childhood favorite Ella Enchanted. Ever since Ella was “blessed” by her fairy godmother with the gift of obedience, she’s been unable to go against a direct order. When she falls in love with a prince, this puts them both in danger. This is Cinderella as you’ve never seen it before, and Ella herself is so lovable that you’ll wish you could read her whole life. Read more 

If, for some unheard-of reason, you haven’t read this book by now, then drop everything and get on with it. Clare is always waiting for her time-traveling husband to reappear. Throughout the book, he is forever vanishing at inconvenient times, and even after he dies, Clare may see a younger version of him show up. After this book ends, you’ll wish the characters could travel back to you again and again. Read more 

Growing up becomes a lot less lonely once you’ve discovered The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It covers everything you’re going through, from body image to sexuality to loneliness. This coming-of-age cult favorite cruelly ends just as it’s beginning to validate your entire existence. Read more 

No matter how many end-of-the-world novels are released, there are still some that manage to stand out. Station Eleven jumps back and forth between the dystopian aftermath of a flu pandemic and the pre-flu world as we know it. It manages to be about humans, and not about the apocalypse. The book’s end comes far too soon. I could have followed these characters forever. Read more 

We Were Liars starts with a mystery and drops few clues as it goes along. Usually, that would leave me flicking the pages to get the answers, but this book is so poetically written that I never wanted it to end. This is one of those books that stays with you long after you turn the final page. Read more 

There’s a serious shortage of WWII-era books about hunting the Loch Ness Monster. In fact, this may be the only one. That’s why it’s pretty hard to let it go. That and the wonderful connection the reader makes with the protagonist Maddie. At the Water’s Edge is a fantastically compelling book. Read more 

Writing about 9/11 is a risky move, but Jonathan Safran Foer claims that, as a New Yorker who felt the event so deeply, it was a greater risk him to not write about it. His story of nine-year-old Oskar Schell dealing with his father’s death may be experimental, but it’s laced with very honest emotion. The tragedy of 9/11 isn’t exploited here. Instead, it is placed in a wider context of war, loss, and trauma. The result is unbearably sad, but beautifully unique. Read more 

Just try not to get sucked into the lives of the Langdon family as they struggle from 1920 to 1953, through the Depression, war, childbirth, and romances. It’s heartbreaking to leave them behind, but fortunately for us, Some Luck is the first in a trilogy, the Last Hundred Years series. Read more 

Jonas Jonasson’s second novel is utterly ridiculous and absolutely hilarious. His characters accidentally fall into (almost) real-life historical situations, and find themselves knowing too much about the hypothetical seventh nuclear missile developed in South Africa in the 1980s. If I could have one wish, it would be that I hadn’t read this book yet so that I still had that treat ahead of me.  Read more 

The very title of this book is a false promise. The young hero lives out all book-lovers’ greatest wish and becomes part of the magical world of literature. It’s a fantastic adventure, but, sadly, it comes to an end. Read more 

The Beginner’s Goodbye is a rather sad, slow-moving book. It’s touching, but certainly not gripping. That is, until you reach the final chapters. A slow realization about these flawed and misunderstood characters takes hold, and just as your perspective is beginning to change, the book comes to a gentle and hopeful end. Read more
