My Longed For Next Great Read

What elements does a book need in order to be sought out, lusted after, and generally longed for like nothing Olive Garden has to offer for you?

Enchanting, says Amazon Best of the month. A touch of mystery, says Booklist. And who doesn't remember telling scary stories with their friends? Ok, maybe not about Jack the Ripper, like the kids in Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. (In case you haven't guessed, the book I'd love to read is Forgotten Garden.)

But the strongest appeal to me for this book is its interweavings of The Secret Garden, a much beloved children's story that I could read again and again.
