Who else is excited about MotherReader's 48-Hour Book Challenge? *raises hand*

I've been plotting my reading pile for weeks now, determined to have on hand a variety of books from which to choose. The colorful pile is currently teetering on my kitchen table and I can't wait to dig in. But there are always room for more...

So here's my question for you: What books have you read lately that were utterly un-put-down-able? Long or short, they were so engrossing that you couldn't help but read them in one or two sittings because you just didn't want to stop.

Books that fell into that category for me include Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor, Ringside, 1925: Views from the Scopes Trial by Jen Bryant (it's a novel in verse, is that cheating for the challenge?), Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen, Good Enough by Paula Yoo, and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Alexie Sherman.

What are yours? What books should I add to my pile for the 48HBC??
