I recently got rid of the book blog I was writing, so here are the the most recent books I've read for this challenge.ReplyDelete
The Angel's Game, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, 544 pages. I loved this one and thought it was possibly even better than The Shadow of the Wind. Although not really a sequel, the setting is the same (although the time period is earlier) and some of the characters from the first book are back again, which I loved. Not to mention The Cemetery of Forgotten Books is at the center of the story again. Yay!! I highly recommend this one.
Desperation, Stephen King, 547 pages. I just finished this one yesterday. I thought it was ok, not my favorite of King's though, by far. I enjoyed the first half of the book quite a bit, as I was being introduced to the cast of characters and being given a serious case of the heebie jeebies. King is the master of giving you the creeps! He kind of lost me in this one with yet another "psychic" child and a sort of ridiculous mythology (I thought) being at the center of the horror. Not a bad read and worth the $1 I paid for it at the used bookstore.

So excited to finish my first chunkster of the year! The Food of France by Waverly Root. It makes me think that non-fiction chuncksters should count extra!ReplyDelete

I have completed the challenge already but have at least 1 more chunkster that I am dying to read. It doesn't seem right to do a wrap up post in April so I will hold off until much later in the year. I am sure that there are more chunksters out there that I will be interested in reading.ReplyDelete
Finished my 4 books! But maybe I can do 2 more to complete the next level.....ReplyDelete
I just realized that only adult books count for the challenge! Unfortunately I've already linked to two young adult books in this linky... A Clockwork Angel and Before I Fall (under the name The Story Girl). Just wanted to clear it up that I'm not trying to evade the rules! I've still finished the challenge without these books. Sorry about that!ReplyDelete
LL: No problem :) Thanks for letting me know.ReplyDelete
I just finished my first book for the challenge! Hurrah! I knew I'd get to it at some point :)ReplyDelete
After posting about my first chunkster challenge reading, I realized that a week earlier I had finished a chunkster already! Here's my review of "Sophie's World (544 pages):ReplyDelete
Another chunckster under my belt, thanks for hosting.ReplyDelete
I had already read the 2 books required for the 450-550 page portion on my challenge, but since this one fit in that range, I'm including it too. Got to find some longer ones still!ReplyDelete
I've now completed my second book over 550 pages. Just the two long ones to go.ReplyDelete
One of my long ones down at 843 pages. It was slow at first, but picked up as I got halfway.ReplyDelete
Two down, two to go. I'd better get cracking!ReplyDelete
I just started the 5th of my 6 chunksters -- Sacred Hunger, a Booker winner by Barry Unsworth. I'll get my review up when finished.ReplyDelete
I can't count, but I did finish the challenge. I signed up to read four and Sacred Hunger was the fourth. I posted my review.Delete
I am very keen to start the 2012 version!
Last one to finish, but I did it :)ReplyDelete
Oops, posted a book to this list instead of the 2012 list. 11/22/63 was read for the 2012 challenge.ReplyDelete
