48 Felix_the_scout Red rising from Pierce Brown, so good that hurts your soul.
25 colossusgb Sanderson's Stormlight Archive books. I remember it being like 12AM while I was reading Words of Radiance, and before I knew it, it was 3AM.
17 wil_i_am_scared_of_u The Jack Reacher books. The Dresden Files. Th David Slaton Assassin series. Th Dark Tower series.
15 StChris0491 The Stand, The Shining, and It by Stephen King A Feast for Crows by George RR Martin
15 Platanoes Return of the King. The last 2/3rds I devoured by candlelight during a night-long power out. One of my best high school memories.
12 shillyshally Te book I'm reading now which someone here recommended - Night Film by Marisha Pessl. I was just about to go start in on it again.
12 AlmostTheNewestDad The Green Mile kept me turning pages. For such a long story, it only takes a few sit downs to finish. I've read most of King's work and it's right up there with my favorites.
9 MimeticSemiotic Donna Tartt - the goldfinch
29 kindlybob Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
8 LieutenantKije A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara - I was in the last 1/3 of the book and it was already midnight ON A WEEKDAY, yet I ended up staying up for a few more hours because that goddamn book would not let me put it down. I was a wreck the next morning (both from lack of sleep and the ending itself) but it really couldn't have waited another day.
6 OneMoreDuncanIdaho Dawn by Octavia Butler, I just had to figure out what was really going on
7 _kingoficecream Worm. A year ago someone on reddit posted about it, and I don't think I'd ever been so gripped by a storyline as I was with this book. Cool concept, greatest female protagonist story EVER, and best of all, it's free. Read the whole thing online at: https://parahumans.wordpress.com/
12 _Mephostopheles_ Reddit. "Just one more post..."
6 alihassan9193 Way of the king. Name of the wind and wise man's fear.
6 mental_27 Most of **Terry Pratchett**'s later works have been addictively good, particularly everything from *The Truth* to *Going Postal*, but one of them actually did literally keep me up until 4AM to finish it in a single sitting as it was so good (despite having to be at work by 9AM and still needing to fit in some sleep). Can't remember 100% which one as I've now reread them all multiple times, but it was most likely to be my absolute favourite - *Night Watch*.
5 destroythethings Stephen King's "The Regulators", and "Desperation"
6 eldertortoise For me it was the last 1000 pages for The Count of Montecristo.
20 ReallyGoodomens The name of the wind and the wise man's fear by Patrick Rothfuss. I devoured each of those books in a single day.
5 FieldLine I read City of Thieves by David Benioff in one sitting. I also later found out that Benioff is one of the creators of GoT (TV). I think IT was trash, so maybe you shouldn't listen to me. I find Stephen King to be hit or miss; his good ones are among my favorites, his bad ones are the worst.
6 jimbobcooter23 Malazan Book of the Fallen series by Steven Erickson.
6 EchoForty Red Rising, absolutely incredible series. Can't wait for Iron Gold this week.
5 midlinktwilight Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book. I kept wanting to see where Bod would go next.
6 KrazyKraka_007 Pet Semetary by Stephen King.
4 TictacTyler Snowcrash by Neal Stephenson. There were several others where I have been reading and wanting to read more but Snowcrash made me stay up through the night reading hundreds of pages to finish it.
4 PinatasandNachos I read the Alex Ride series and I hate myself because I feel like I have to finish the stories in one go or it isn't satisfying
5 jmhb The Secret History too, actually. The Goldfinch kept me up as well, but not as much as that one.
8 MBPyro Cat’s Cradle The chapters are like 2 pages on average, highly addicting.
3 OliviaPresteign I once started Connie Willis’s *Blackout* in the afternoon. I felt this way. It ended on a cliffhanger. It was around 10pm, and I figured, “Hey, I’ll just START *All Clear*.” I stayed up all night finishing.

3 Imzadi_Rose * Hover Car Racer by Matthew Reilly * The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchinson * The Martian by Andy Weir * The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfus * The Land series by Aleron Kong
