Hey guys! I thought I would compile a list of books that completely blew my mind. There are many books I’ve enjoyed, in fact loved, but there are only a true handful that really left me amazed. Therefore, I thought I’d make a list of some of those books that just really impressed me. With many of these books, plot twists, high stakes, etc. contributed to this feeling, but for a few, there was just an overall WOW factor that is pretty inexplicable.
To make this convenient, I will be listing the novel and some simple, non-spoilery bullet point characteristics of the book that make it so mind-blowing.
With all that said, let’s get into the list!
