Big Book Summer Challenge


This challenge is hosted by Sue at Book by Book.

The goal is to read “Big Books” this summer. That is to say, books that are chunky monkeys and more than 400 pages each! I love this idea and have already signed up on Goodreads. But now that I’m a blogger (alright, a wannabe!) it only seems right to make this my first challenge to tackle. The books I am planning to read this summer are-

  • 1st to Die by James Patterson (424 pages)
  • Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi (544 pages)
  • Great Expectations by Charles Dickens (505 pages)
  • Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (850 pages!!)

That’s well over 2k pages! (I think I can, I think I can) Anyway, please wish me luck and if you’re so inclined, check out the challenge yourself and give it a try. You only need to read 1 Big Book to enter the giveaway for an Amazon giftcard. WOOT!

  1. Welcome (again) to Big Book Summer!

    It’s so exciting that you just started your own blog and this is your first reading challenge as a blogger – I feel honored!!

    Your list of Big Books to read keeps growing – I sooo get that! As I mentioned on Goodreads, I loved both Great Expectations (did a re-read on audio last summer) and Outlander – you’ll see, those 800+ pages go very quickly! It was one of the books that inspired me to create this challenge 🙂

    Enjoy your big books this summer!
