    What book simply fell out of the sky into your hands and you gave it go and absolutely loved it.
    For me, it was I Capture the castle by Dodie smith although it was initially given to me by someone. It spent a long time in my bookshelf, gathering dust before It fell out of my bookshelf, literally and I began reading it. I ended up loving Cassandra(the lead) and her raw, independent streak as she handles love, sisterhood, and despair as well as living in a crumbling castle in the middle of nowhere.
    What's your amazing accident? And did you end up loving it as much as I love I capture the castle?

    The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists. Bought it in a charity shop. Great book.

    The Gone series
    (Although The Shock of The Fall is a close second)
