Books from my all time favorites list share several qualities. Whether it’s a series or standalone, all loose ends must be tied. I want to be challenged emotionally, spiritually and/or intellectually. It has to have the ability to stay with me beyond reading and make it difficult to finish the last page. The following books have done that for me.
