This is a monthly challenge hosted here at the Tome. Its quite self explanatory, read a book 500 pages or more ; ) On the last day of the month I will post the wrap up of what I read and what my new book will be. Grab my button on my sidebar if you'd like to join. If I get enough followers I'll put a Mr. Linky at the bottom for all.
Ok I'm a little late with the posting, I know the last day of the month was Saturday, but I've been a bit lazy with it being summer ; ) That said, how about some people jumping into this challenge. We all love to read, we all love to squawk about them good or bad so come on girls, it's open for the whole month come join the fun and then come back at the end of the month to talk about it!
July was just a TERRIBLE reading month for me : ( I read 2 books for the whole month. Reading Voyager just killed me. I started that book on the 9th and didn't finish the sucker till the 28th!!! Not good at all. Granted it was 1072 pgs long, but just the same. Hubs thinks I'm a wacko cause I'm going to read the rest in the series and some are 1400 pgs long, but I do love the story and characters even though Gabaldon gets bogged down in b.s. Here is my review -
Now for August's choice, my kids go back to school on the 11th so I'll have more quiet time for reading and I will read.....
Paperback 400 pgs
Yes I know 400 pgs, Voyager was double my challenge # anywho ; ) but I have to say, the book that has more pgs, while on my summer challenge reading list is not where my head is at right now, but I will list it as well as a possible 2nd choice for the challenge -
Paperback 816 pgs
Has anyone read Kushiel's Dart? I know of 1 person who has read a few in the series and liked it very much, but she said it was quite intense. That is where my trepidation lies. I don't know if I want intense.
Also I am hosting a group reading of Eternal Kiss Of Darkness this month with a quick check in on the 15th and discussion on the 27th so that everyone has a chance to get the book, come join the fun with that too! Stop by here -
*Eternal Kiss Of Darkness*
