The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I'd HAVE to play hooky to get through TLOTR again. It's so gargantuan, but so very worth it. Tolkien has delicious phrasing, and his words burrow right into your brain.

Gustav Gloom and the People Taker by Adam-Troy Castro. The underlying theme of this list is "books I don't normally have time to read." I think Gustav Gloom looks like a load of fun, and it's sitting on my bookshelf making eyes at me. I'll get to you soon, Gustav, I promise!
|Whyyyyyy isn't the US cover this cool?!|
Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers. I've already only half-jokingly announced my intention to skip work when I get my hands on this book. Really, it's a moral quandary. I like being dependable, and I won't lie to my employer. BUT THIS BOOK!!
Whatever I'm reading now. Except for weekends, I really only read during my lunch breaks at work. It'd be glorious to be able to just sit and read for an entire day as much as I'd like. Heavenly, I say!
What book would be enough to tempt YOU to play hooky?
