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 a book with 400 pages or more).
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 mostly in the 400-500 page range:
- The Marvels by Brian Selznick, 665 pages (middle-grade)
- Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, 507 pages
- The Many Lives of John Stone by Linda Buckley-Archer, 444 pages (YA)
- The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater, 438 pages (YA)
- The Likeness by Tana French, 466 pages
- To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis, 493 pages
I'm so excited for summer now!
