Ten books read in April. Well, that’s what happens during Readathon month, ha! Usually I’m split pretty even between fiction and nonfiction, but this month Brain on Fire and The Bridge Ladies were my only nonfiction reads.
So many fantastic books here! I’m not sure I could choose a favorite. Pax, George, The Kings and Queens of Roam, and Thursday 1:17 PM are way at the top of the list, though.
I’m currently reading my first Cory Doctorow title, his YA sci-fi novel For the Win. It’s just shy of 500 pages, but since I read so much during Readathon (and the week before, too!) I feel like I can slow down and take a chance on something that’s longer. “Taking a chance” is the key phrase here: To me, chunksters feel like a bigger commitment, so when I’m especially busy, or going through one of those “must read all the books!” feeling—or heck, when I’m in one of those moods where I don’t want to commit myself to anything at all—longer titles aren’t what I normally reach for.
I know I’m missing out on some great reads, though. So tell me, what are some chunksters that you’d put on your must-read list?
