I really enjoyed tackling some big books the last few summers, and I'm looking forward to doing it again and finally reading some of these bricks that have been collecting dust on my shelf (NOTE: for this challenge, a Big Book is defined as anything with more than 400 pages).
I don't know if I will get to all of these, but I like to have some options to choose from. These are all currently on my shelves, waiting patiently to be read (along with many others!). I actually chose 6 this year because none of them are 700-1000 pages long, as in some years - these are all in the 400-500 page range:
- A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson, 480 pages (companion novel to Life After Life!)
- UnDivided by Neal Schusterman, 464 pages
- Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver, 444 pages
- Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, 440 pages
- One Thousand White Women by Jim Fergus, 434 pages
- Revolution by Deborah Wiles, 495 pages
I'm so excited for summer now! I do still need to squeeze in 3 more book group selections in June, but I have already kicked off my Big Book Summer by starting A God in Ruins today.
How about you? Are you up for tackling a Big Book (or two or three) this summer? Join me and sign up for the 2015 Big Book Summer Challenge!
