There are few things I love more in this world than the expanse of four or five days of schedule-free bliss, and a stack of books on the coffee table. Sure, I’m not going to say no to some chocolate, if it happens to be sitting in a bowl next to my TBR pile — but that’s pretty much the only thing that could possibly make this scenario any better. This is definitely not the book-cramming study sessions of second semester, senior year finals: No, what I’m talking about is a long weekend of luxurious binge-reading.

Some books are just made to be read in one sitting (or, if you’re tackling some of the lists here, over an extra-long weekend.) Plus, as we approach the final strides of this year’s gloriously lazy days of summer, there’s never been a better time to step away from the DVR and take your entertainment binging outside and into the sunshine, in the form of a good old fashioned book or two. Or seven.

Move over Netflix, because I hear binge-reading is the new binge-watching, and these 37 titles make up a great list of binge-worthy books, just perfect to get you started on your own marathon reading session. Don’t forget the snacks! And maybe some Band-Aids for those paper cuts.
