It's time once again for the Big Book Summer Reading Challenge hosted by Sue at Book By Book. I love this challenge because I honestly tend to avoid big books (over 400 pages) so this gives me a little extra motivation to read a couple each year.
The rules are pretty easy. You need to read at least one book that's over 400 pages from the US Memorial Day weekend (starting May 27 this year) through Labor Day weekend (Labor Day is September 5 this year). That's about it.
I have two big books planned so far. First is The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, mostly because my daughter has it out from the library right now and it will be a bit of a cheat since half the book is pictures! I figure that's a nice way to ease into this challenge!
I also plan to read The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey. I'll read this one during the Sci-Fi Summer Read-a-Thon the first week of June.
After that, I'm not sure. But I do plan to read at least one or two others. Perhaps something by Tana French or Kate Morton.
Let me know in the comments if you have a favorite big book!
