Big Book Summer Reading Challenge - Recap

Big Book Summer Challenge

Thanks so much to Sue at Book by Book, who hosting the Big Book Summer Challenge again. I love this challenge because I tend to avoid long books so it encourages me to read them. The goal was to read at least one book that was more than 400 pages by Labor Day, which was this past Monday, September 7. I did okay, but not as great as I was hoping to do!

I planned to read four books, but only made it through two (although I am in the middle of a third). Here's what I did manage to read:

The Color of Our Sky book cover

The Color of Our Sky by Amita Trasi

All the Light We Cannot See book cover

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

I also started I Am Pilgrim: A Thriller by Terry Hayes during the challenge, but I haven't been reading a lot lately, so it's been slow going.

Did you participate in the challenge? What did you read?

  2. I finished the Chunkster challenge in the spring (never finished it so early before) so I'm not reading more fat books until 2016. Giving myself a break, so I will be happy to dive back into one.
