    The trouble with those books is that they are SO absorbing, that you will read them in a day! If you havnt read the Girl With A Dragon Tattoo trilogy yet then those 3 books will keep you very occupied for at least a week.

    I get this every time Lee Child releases a new one! I can't make it last, it simply has to be read right through.

    Must admit I couldn't get into the Steig Larsson books. I'd read more crime and thrillers than I can name but these left me cold.

    Peter James novels are also good, along with Jo Nesbo too.

    I was a bit like that with the Twilight books (sorry to any non-Twilighters!) but also anything by Jodi Picoult. Especially Nineteen Minutes. Could not put that book down at all!

    The Hunger Games - it's a trilogy of books, being made into a film later this year. I originally saw the movie trailer and it looked so good I downloaded the books onto my kindle and read all 3 within a couple of days. Definitely the kind of book you just can't put down.

    Barsoom / John Carter series. You can find it on Project Gutenberg, because it's in the public domain. I also love anything by Jaqueline Carey.
