From sci-fi stories of parallel universes, to fantasy tales of assassins and superhuman abilities, to retellings of your favorite fairytales, the following books will be sure to keep you interested until the very last page.

 

1.The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

Vintage
 
My friends and I devoured The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. It’s a kind of literary fiction/murder mystery/heart-melting family drama mash-up centering around a teenager with Asperger’s syndrome. I loved it because I felt like I wasn’t reading a book so much as I was actually Christopher himself in the midst of his bizarre murder investigation.

2.Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

Penguin Classics
 
The anticipation as Marlow travels up the Congo River in search of the mysterious ivory trader Kurtz, the mounting dread, the suspense… You’ll read Heart of Darknessin just a few hours, but it will haunt you for long after that.

3.The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Vintage
 
 
First off, if you’ve only seen the abominable movie, put it out of your mind. This book is the ultimate in literary romance. Henry has an extremely rare genetic disorder that causes him to pop out of the present and into random points of his own life, future and past. In one such journey, he meets Claire — then a child — and learns that they’ll much later fall in love. Gut- and heart-wrenching obstacles ensue as they work to maintain their relationship across time. A word of caution: It can take a little while to work out the logistics when first reading, but the emotional payout is so worth it.
