Big Book Summer Challenge





I recently found this challenge over at Book By Book, and I thought it sounded great, especially as I found it right as I was starting a book with over 500 pages.  And for this challenge, you only have to pledge to read ONE book over 400 pages.  So how simple is that?  This challenge started on Memorial Day weekend, and will run until Labor Day weekend which is September 1st this year.  All you have to do is write a post like this one, announcing your participation, and then at the end post about how well you did.  If you want to you can review the books, which I will, but that isn't even required.  You can list the books you intend to read if you want, but that isn't even necessary for your beginning post.  I am going to list my proposed books below, one of which I'm actually in the middle of reading at the moment.

  • City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
  • Light (Gone #6) by Michael Grant
  • Conversion by Katherine Howe
  • The City by Dean Koontz
  • White Space by Ilsa J. Bick
Now the last one I actually started a bit back, but wasn't able to finish, so I'll try to read it again this summer, but it's probably one that I may not get to.  I'm having some major surgery next week, and so figure I'll have lots of uninterrupted time to read while I'm recovering.

  1. Those books all sound really great! It's sometimes hard to read books with many pages when you blog about books, because that means you will have several days without any book to write about. Still, it's often those books that I like the most. Great challenge!

    1. You're so right! The time to get them done and get my two reviews a week goal completed often don't work out. So I'm hoping with the recovery time from my surgery this coming week, I should hopefully get some done when I'm feeling okay. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Welcome to the Big Book Summer Challenge, Lisa!! So glad you decided to join. You've got a great list of Big Books there. My son is also going to read City of Lost Souls this summer - his favorite series ever!

    I'm sorry to hear you need surgery, but you are right - the silver lining is some good reading time!!

    Enjoy your big books -
