Every so often you stumble across the book that whips you right out of reality and pulls you in. I’m talking about the kind of book that leaves you at the very end of the subway line with no memory of how you got there, because you totally missed your stop and didn’t notice. I’m talking about finding you have 67 missed calls because you were reading in bed and forgot to meet your mom for brunch.

Here are 13 books to get completely, marvelously lost in. Apologies in advance to anyone with whom you made plans. They're screwed.
