Catching up on the TBR pile and more than halfway through HOW TO WRITE LIKE TOLSTOY. Recommend for: a look into some of the greatest writers' minds and how they approached their words; those who enjoy reading about writing.
This is one of those fantasy books I want to read so badly but I’ve put it off forever. Maybe if I wasn’t so hooked on podcasts I could get some reading done but I can’t stop listening to my latest one. 📚 #bookstagram #thetigersdaughter #karsenaultrivera #paperbackbooks #adultfantasy #bigbooks #lgbtfantasy #theirbrightascendency #fantasybooks #mybooks #bookcollection
The Priory of The Orange Tree might be one of the bigguns you’d rather have on your #kindle . It’s only $1.99!! I have heard really mixed things about it, but for $1.99 and no need for it to take up a bunch of room on my shelves, I’ll try it out! #mytbr keeps getting longer and longer and I think this issue gets worse as I head toward summer. #booksale #prioryoftheorangetree #top100 #dailydeals #bigbooks #ibuybooks #samanthashannon #worldbuilding #epicfantasy

Books. . Have just spent a beautiful date day with @roams.and.reads visiting coffee shops and charity shops scouting for bargain books. A perfect Sunday! . I have been dying to get my hands on The Familiars for weeks, but can’t afford a full price hardback and the library 📚 waiting list is forever. When in our local Oxfam book store I spy this for £2.99. What a find! It made my date day even better 💚 . What’s been your best charity shop find? . Hope you are having a beautiful Sunday 💚 . . . #bookstagram #booklover #booknerd #bibliophile #igreads #readersofinstagram #instareads #bookaddict #bookishcommunity #bookworm #bookstagrammer #bookish #unitedbookstagram #instabookstagram #instabooks #readingaddict #instaread #bookish #bigbooks #instabookstagram #bookishlife #bookishpost #readmorebooks #booksbooksbooks #booktime #bookobsessed #notjustaprettybook #charityshopbookhaul
Book review. . The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah . 🌿🌿🌿🌿 . A fabulous read, set in occupied France during WWII. I really enjoyed the setting and the story, as it flipped between two sisters and their very different experience of the war. One sister is the family tearaway that speaks her mind and gets into trouble, but turns this into a powerful skill by joining the French Resistance, helping fallen Allied airmen. The other brings up her young daughter, whilst her beloved husband is away fighting, and suffers the turmoil of occupation, slow starvation of rationing and having German offices billeted in her beautiful family home. . I loved how emotionally involved you get with the characters, their heartbreak, their determination and their destitution. . Spanning the duration of the war and mixed with present day flashbacks. It’s a book that keeps you intrigued throughout, with fabulous pacing and beyond heroic actions. . If you are a fan of strong women and their silent strength this is a perfect read for you. . . . #bookstagram #booklover #booknerd #bibliophile #igreads #readersofinstagram #instareads #bookaddict #bookishcommunity #bookworm #bookstagrammer #bookish #unitedbookstagram #instabookstagram #instabooks #readingaddict #instaread #bookish #bigbooks #instabookstagram #bookishlife #bookishpost #readmorebooks #booksbooksbooks #booktime #bookobsessed #notjustaprettybook

• SECONDE POSSIBILITÀ • Vi è mai capitato che, durante la lettura di un libro, sentite che non sia il momento giusto? E non è importante che vi stia piacendo o meno, non riuscite comunque ad andare avanti. Vi è mai capitato di lasciarlo da parte per poi promettere a voi stesse di riprenderlo in un secondo momento? E magari quel momento arriva dopo messi, anni, o addirittura non arriva mai. E allora io mi chiedo: è giusto dare una seconda possibilità ad una lettura? O la prima impressione che abbiamo solitamente risulta essere quella giusta? E solitamente, quel determinato libro, non fa per noi? A me è capitato con “Possessione” della Byatt, iniziato un paio di anni fa e mai portato avanti; ultimamente però mi è tornata la curiosità di sapere come continua questa storia. E chissà, magari riuscirò a terminarla prima o poi! Voi cosa fate quando vi trovate in questa situazione? Li abbandonate senza remore o gli concedete una seconda possibilità? ________________________ #books #bookstagram #bookshelf #libri #read #bookhaul #reading #literature #tbr #beauty #booklover #bookworm #bookmarks #goodreads #bibliophile #instabook #bookreviews #letture #bookrecommendation #bookblogger #romanzi #littlebooks #bigbooks #writing #colors #igreads #saggi #classici

What film adaptation are you waiting for? Were there any that you thought were great?! • • We are a sucker for the IT movies! The book is incredible and this is a great rendition of the childhood years. This newest one comes out in September of this year and we can’t wait!! • • Did you know? In the novel, IT is not actually a clown; IT is an entity or what you could call a dark creature that takes on forms tailored to the child it's preying on. Although its most common form is a clown, IT also appears in the book as creatures like werewolves, vampires, and mummies to wreak havoc on the town of Derry every 27 years! That being a key number within the book, the newest film adaptation hit theaters exactly 27 years after the 1990 adaptation, starring Tim Curry. • • #IT #bigbooks #horrorbooks #stephenking #theyallfloat #beepbeeprichie #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booklover #bookphoto #bookgeek #booknerd #bookphotography #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookworm

Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children was the 1981 Booker Prize winner and various editions have been sitting neatly ignored on my shelves for years through numerous apartment and country changes. 🔎📝📚 Now I’m super-excited to be undertaking my first buddy read this June with @thereadingjackdaw , @my_book_journey_2019 , and @5sentencebookreviews. 📝📚🔎 Would anyone else like to join us? It is a whopper - my edition runs to 647 pages - but I expect to be swiftly won over. I also have a copy of Rushdie’s The Enchantress of Florence at home - so am hoping to catch the Rushdie bug and read on. 🔎📝📚 QOTD: Have you ever done a buddy read?

Reading big books: satisfying, daunting, or a little of each? 🤔 . I started Gone With the Wind in November and ended up setting it aside for no reason other than I am not a monogamous reader, and it's usually the big books that take the hit. But I picked it up to finish for my first pick of #2020classics and I've finally gotten lost in the saga (in a good way!). I'm at the halfway point and with a 5-day weekend I'm confident I'll not only be able to finish it for May but a couple of other books besides. . . . . . #jennsrainbowchallenge #classics #gonewiththewind #margaretmitchell #bigbooks #bookworm #bookish #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #igreads #reader #readwhatyouown #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookhoarder #booknerd #readersofinstagram #teachersread #teachersofinstagram #booksofinstagram
~ B o o k H a u l ~ . What’s the best book bargain you’ve ever bought? . A trip to the charity shop resulted in this haul and I got all 4 for £1!!😳 They had so many good books in there today but I’m running low on storage space so I had to be sensible 🤣. . The House on the Strand by Daphne Du Maurier. I now own 5 novels from her and have never read any of her work so let’s hope it I like 😂. . Fingersmith by Sarah Waters. I haven’t heard of this before but the cover drew me in 🙈 and then the synopsis sold it. . The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. I’ve seen this on #bookstagram a lot and it sounds like one I’ll enjoy. . Winter of the World by Ken Follett. I’ve been eyeing up a lot of the Ke Follett books over the last year but have never taken the plunge before so I had to bring this home. It’s the first of a trilogy and is over 800 pages! . It’s finally Friday and it’s a bank holiday weekend so hoping to get lots of reading done! I hope you’ve had a lovely week. . . . . . #bookhaul #newbooks #readeveryday #areaderslife #readerlife #bookhoarder #booklife #lovereading #readinglove #lovebooks #booklive #bookishlife #bookstack #readingbooks #mybookishlife #readbooks #theminiaturist #kenfollett #daphnedumaurier #fingersmith #bookaesthetic #newbookstack #prettybooks #beautifulbooks #bigbooks
Happy Friday, bookstagram! I’ve read 740 pages which means I’ve passed the midpoint of this 1474-page behemoth....and I am loving it. Several people told me they loved this book and I can see why. Also, I’m happy to be reading outside though I still need a blanket; hoping it warms up a little more this afternoon. • As a reader of big books, I often want an idea of how the length of a prospective book compares to others I’ve read. Page length is only an approximation, of course, as different editions are published with different font sizes, margins, and leading (space between the lines). A more accurate way to find out the length of a book is to search the title + word count. A Suitable Boy clocks in at 593,674 words. • QOTD: Does book length factor into your reading choices? • • • #bookish #bookishcanadians #canadianbookstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #bookworm #reading #bibliophile #booknerd #booklover #igreads #igbooks #bookaholic #amreading #bigbooks #ilikebigbooksandicannotlie #asuitableboy #unreadshelf #readwhatyouown
What daunting books are on your TBR? 📖 I feel like I generally class books that are over 500 pages as daunting but sometimes there are other factors as well that make them especially daunting. So, I thought I'd share 5 that are on my #tbr that I find daunting not only because they're massive... 📚 The Secret History by Donna Tart - this one has made the list because although I'm so excited for it and I have a feeling I will love it, I've heard it's very literary so I'm a bit scared I'm not intelligent enough for it. Also this edition makes the book look not that long but it's actually over 600 pages! 📚 Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace - on a similar level to The Secret History, I've heard it's complex and difficult to understand so again I have this fear that I won't be intelligent enough to get it and on top of that this one clocks in at almost 800 pages. 📚 4321 by Paul Auster - I remember buying this one pretty much straight after it was released because it was a little bit hyped and I was intrigued by the concept. But the reason I find it daunting is the fact it's about one person but it's told through four alternate universes, although it's not sci-fi or anything like that. So I'm worried this one might be a bit confusing to follow, but I've never disliked a book published by faber so far so I have high hopes. This one's 850 pages so definitely another long one. 📚 The Stand by Stephen King - I do think I only find this one daunting purely because of the size, as this one is 1300 pages. I've found the long King's I've read so far easy to get through but especially with It I thought so much could have been cut out and the book still would have been just as good. 📚 City on Fire by Garth Risk Hallberg - weirdly I've never heard anyone talk about this book on bookstagram or booktube but the premise sounds interesting to me. This one is 900 pages and I think what makes it especially daunting is the fact its a hardback so it weighs a tonne, definitely think when I finally get around to this one I'm going to have to borrow the paperback from the library. #bookstagram #books #bigbooks #bibliophile #booklover #bookaddict #bookworm #unitedbookstagram
...doesn’t this deserve some sort of ‘I like big books and I cannot lie’ caption? There’s just something magical about getting your hands on some not so mainstream *used* books. I believe you can feel not only the authors presence on the book, but every reader who has touched its pages. Books carry a sort of karmic aura to them and over time I feel that vibration gets stronger. The smell alone when you walk in this old bookstore is an intoxicating thrill! Giving a shout to @berrypetersonbooksellers , my absolute FAV in #Kingston ~ I recommend the upstairs back corner for allllll the metaphysical books about spirituality n’ all that voodoo shiz. The best. TONS of philosophy/nature/history gems in this place! ♥️📚 . . . . . .

A caminho de Brasília (onde celebro amanhã) e tomando proveito do ambiente off-line do avião para colocar a leitura em dia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hoje, é Milan Kundera quem me fará companhia no voo (e convenhamos: que melhor momento para pensar na relação peso/leveza do que a bordo de uma máquina que, vazia, já pesa 40ton mas que, impulsionada pelas milagrosas leis da Física, é elevada pelos ares? Eu amo aviação, gente, posso falar disso por horas). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Esse livro é lindo, lindo, e com ele reinauguro a tag #livromarciahenz : “quanto mais pesado é o fardo, mais próxima da terra está a nossa vida, e mais real e verdadeira ela é. Em compensação, a ausência total de fardo leva o ser humano a ser mais leve que o ar, leva-o a voar, a se distanciar da terra, do ser terrestre, a se tornar semirreal, e leva seus movimentos a se tornarem tão livres quanto insignificantes. O que escolher, então? O peso ou a leveza?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nowreading #livro #clubedeleitura #bigbooks #milankundera #companhiadasletras #LOVEismyRELIGION #RitoCerimonias
Finished this one today but this monstrosity of a book is not over yet! 😁 I've read the first part that has 494 pages, this second part that has 638 pages but there is the third part and 718 more pages. I'm counting it as one book because it was originally published as one book. Croatian edition is in three parts. 🤭 But it's a weird feeling completing a book and not marking it as read on Goodreads. 🤭 #asuitableboy #vikramseth #currentlyreading #amreading #currentread #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #bookandcoffee #reading #bigbooks #goodreads
I need Pan Macmillan recommendations! . I'm travelling soon and looking for a book to take with me. Because these Pan Macmillan Collector's Editions are so compact and don't weigh too much, they're ideal for me to take. Plus, I'm after a classic that will take me quite some time to complete, as I can't afford to carry lots of books! The only problem is that I don't know which to go for. These are the ones I'm choosing between: . 📚 Orlando - Virginia Woolf 📚 Madame Bovary - Gustave Flaubert 📚 Emma - Jane Austen 📚 The Age of Innocence - Edith Wharton 📚 The House of Mirth - Edith Wharton 📚 The Importance of Being Earnest & Other Plays - Oscar Wilde 📚 The Odyssey - Homer 📚 The War of the Worlds - H.G. Wells 📚 Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea - Jules Vernes 📚 Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte . Which one would you get?! If you've read any other good ones in this edition, let me know - all options are open at this stage. . #bookstagram #booklover #booknerd #bibliophile #igreads #readersofinstagram #instareads #bookaddict #bookishcommunity #bookworm #bookstagrammer #bookish #unitedbookstagram #instabookstagram #instabooks #readingaddict #instaread #bookish #bigbooks #instabookstagram #bookishlife #bookishpost #readmorebooks #booksbooksbooks #booktime #bookobsessed

I’m v intimidated by the big books, man! What if it takes me until the end of the year to read it? What if I don’t enjoy it up until the last few chapters? .

Finally finished this space odyssey and phew it was a lot to chew on. First off, the characters are fantastic and the way Chambers integrates discussions of sex and gender into her world is perfect. There are lots of sexy alien descriptions! Which was fun, but I am not a detail person. The world building and easy flow of the text makes it a fun read, but I often got bogged down in all the explanation of how things worked and each species cultural anthropology. It is incredibly detailed and fleshed out. Ex: feather families! So neat! For that, I loved getting to know the main characters, but I also tired of all the seemingly unimportant side quests. Lots happens in this novel, but nothing *actually* happens, if that makes any sense. There is lots of adventure, but not necessarily any character growth either. Just a band of friends tripping around the universe and Chambers does an awesome job at melding together a lot of interesting concepts into her book in a fresh and exciting way. 👽 👾 👽 Overall, this is a fun sci-fi read with lovable characters going on adventures, taking the loooooong way to be small angry planet. 🚀 📚 🚀 Note: the audiobook is fantastic. Sound effects and music plays in the background, you actually feel like you are part of a new world. 👾 🚀 👾 #scifi #longread #summerread #funreads #spaceship #beckychambers #featherfamily #alongwaytoasmallangryplanet #planets #bigbooks #country #downtown #aliens #sexyaliens #spacebae #spacestory #picoftheweek #smalltowntexas #galacticcommons #galactic #spaceopera #spaceoperanovel #wayfarer #spacevoyager
What's one bookish setting or place you'd really recommend? . This is one of the Oxford University colleges that was used for the filming of Harry Potter.

“Tutto quello che ho per difendermi è l’alfabeto; è quanto mi hanno dato al posto del fucile” - PHILIP ROTH Dopo essermi mostrata nelle storie ho deciso di mostrarmi anche in una foto per presentarmi bene, dato che non l’ho mai veramente fatto. Mi chiamo Martina, ho 21 anni e sono nata e cresciuta a Roma. Studio psicologia e vorrei specializzarmi in media e comunicazione digitale, anche se ho sempre segretamente desiderato fare lettere. Non sono una lettrice da quando ero bambina, mi sono avvicinata alla lettura in adolescenza i primi anni del liceo, poi però non ho più saputo smettere. Ho aperto questa pagina 4 mesi fa con l’intento di trasmettere questa mia passione e condividerla con tutti coloro che sarebbero stati disposti a farlo, poiché nella vita di tutti giorni non ne avevo la possibilità. Il mio scopo è quello di aprire dialoghi e dibattiti sulle questioni più disparate, confrontando le differenti opinioni e parlare insieme dei libri che ho amato e che, in futuro, amerò. Ringrazio tutti coloro che finora mi hanno dimostrato il loro supporto seguendomi e commentando i miei post e le mie storie offrendo spunti sempre interessanti! Ho creato questo post affinché possiate conoscere meglio la persona che sta dietro ai post e alla pagina, perché siamo tutte persone. Dunque, CONOSCIAMOCI!

BOOK REVIEW: Book 27 of 2019 – Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson . This was my first Winterson, and I found it quite exquisite. In many ways it was a difficult read, yet it kept me hooked with its poetic language and striking narrator, and was ultimately an incredibly worthwhile read. . This is a story about love. It follows our narrator’s journey as they find themselves all-consumed by a love that leaves its mark upon their body and soul in multiple ways, having spent years prior in unsatisfying or unhealthy relationships in which they experienced a tacit reluctance to fall in love with anybody. Their experience of passion within the context of being truly in love is juxtaposed with a catalogue of messy and mind-numbing sexual encounters in previous relationships, and what follows is the unfolding of dramatic (and tragic) events and the impact of love and loss upon our narrator’s life choices. . My favourite part of this novel is that our narrator is not given a specified gender: we do not know whether they are male, female or non-binary. They have had relationships with both men and women, and language is cleverly employed throughout to keep their gender ambiguous. I find bisexual representation in novels typically lacking, so this was an absolute pleasure to find. . That said, I had really mixed feelings towards the narrator. They fall in love with a married woman and so are complicit in an affair; they have been hurtful to others in the past; they make foolish and questionable decisions that lead to them losing the woman they love. Yet, somehow, they are ultimately able to surrender themselves to an unconditional love; repeatedly losing and finding themselves in the soul and body of another despite the potential for having been jaded and wounded by others in the past. . Winterson has such a phenomenal skill for weaving humour, heartbreak, poetry and philosophy. Each character is vividly painted, the story much more than a story: it is a sensual commentary on gender, love and morality. . ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

Let's talk TOMES. Those big, intimidating books that rock the scales at 500+ pages. Those books that, if you're like me, you buy and then never read because they are TOO intimidating 😂. REAMDE by Neal Stephenson is one of those books for me. So many people that I know have loved it, but in afraid to start it because I have commitment issues. Ha! Have any of those in your shelf? #nealstephenson #bigbooks #prettybooks #bibliophile #bookblogger #igbooks #igreads #scifibooks #readingismagic #readersofinstagram
CONSIGLI DI LETTURA 📚 4321 è un romanzo in cui possibile e reale si intrecciano in un agglomerato di eventi continui della quale, fino all’ultimo, non distinguiamo l’originale. Auster sceglie di partire dal paragrafo 1.0, quando la storia di Archie Ferguson deve ancora avere inizio: l’intenzione dell’autore è quella di partire dai preamboli della sua storia che rappresenteranno fino alla fine il filo conduttore che terrà legate le 4 vicende. Da ciò si svilupperanno così le possibili vite di Ferguson, in un intreccio narrativo continuo ma allo stesso tempo autonomo. L’autore gioca con i suoi personaggi e li manipola a suo piacimento. Gli eventi stessi risultano alterati a seconda del racconto che si sta portando avanti, il che ci fa trovare spesso ad assistere ai medesimi fatti che avranno però un esito diverso, rendendo differenti anche gli avvenimenti che ne conseguiranno. Grazie a questo espediente Paul Auster mette in evidenza il concetto della scelta. Lo scrittore vuole farci riflettere sul ruolo che queste hanno nella propria realtà, partendo dal fatto che per ogni persona vengono a identificarsi diversi ruoli nel corso dell’esistenza: il nostro Io non è mai definitivo, ma in continuo mutamento e ogni scelta ci pone di fronte ad un aut aut. Il protagonista è quindi dinamico, dialettico, si afferma per poi negarsi e in seguito riconciliarsi con se stesso e prendere forma, lo vediamo crescere e maturare. Assistiamo ad un Ferguson in evoluzione, in divenire. A fare da cornice è il decennio degli anni 60. Lo scrittore ci immerge in un contesto storico turbolento e ricco di eventi significativi: gli Stati Uniti diventano il campo di scontri politici, lo scoppio del conflitto nel Vietnam e la successiva nascita del movimento sociale contro la guerra, il boom economico, l’origine del consumismo e le discriminazioni razziali, il tutto messo a confronto con eventi della minima importanza quali il primo bacio di Archie e la scrittura del suo primo racconto. Non c’è fine in questo brillante ed ingegnoso romanzo all’amalgamarsi e combinarsi di episodi ambivalenti la cui protagonista principale è New York, in un turbinio di gioia e sofferenza, vita e morte.

Hier sind unsere genreübergreifenden Empfehlungen von Büchern mit über 500 Seiten: "Fräulein Nettes kurzer Sommer" von Karen Duve erzählt die Geschichte der willensstarken Schriftstellerin Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, die sich dem Frauenbild des 19.

You might notice I transferred this plant into a larger home. Hopefully it will make it though the transition. If you have any tips for that I would love to hear them. I am a stressed plant mom. Also I’m hoping to continue on with this trilogy soon before I forget all the details! I’m constantly striving to continue series but I get distracted by new ones! ☘️ #ladymidnight #cassandraclare #darkartifices #bigbooks #shadowhunters #shadowhunterseries #bookstagram #hardcoverbooks #yaparanormal #yafantasy #youngadultbooks #thedarkartifices
Papa Moomin looks approvingly at this bit of magic between the morning sheets. #books #writer #writers need to #read , too. #carlosruizzafon #carlosruizzafón (have to get the accent right ofcourse) @zafonoficial #thelabyrinthofthespirits #hetlabyrintdergeesten #moomin #patrickwatson #author #bookstagram #bigbooks #magicrealism
‘I am the sum total of everything that went before me, of all I have been seen done, of everything done-to-me. I am everyone everything whose being-in-the-world affected was affected by mine. I am anything that happens after I'm gone which would not have happened if I had not come.’ #midnightschildren #salmanrushdie - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ . I make no secret about the fact I am a philistine when it comes to my book type, I forgo classics and old books preferring the instant hit of contemporary fiction, which I can blaze greedily at what I consider a reasonably quick reading speed. . However this book forced me to slow down and appreciate the complexity of story telling, and I think I could confidently say it will be one of my favourite oldies. . I would use every descriptive word I know trying to tell you my feelings on the book and all it’s parts, but what I couldn’t do is summarise the story it’s self, it’s just so thick with detail and it’s narrative and story so different its certainly something you have to read to really get. . Think perhaps an Indian Forrest Gump, a little like Big Fish, but add a massive scoop of magical realism and eccentricity and you are close but that doesn’t really do it justice and sell it. . It will be one I’ll read again, and maybe again, and then maybe again just to catch details over looked, I would even think about taking it on holiday (if I was going on one) where I wouldn’t be distracted and could fully amerce myself into it. . But for now I think I need a lay down and register all the ounces of Saleem’s 600+ dense page journey that I did take in first time round. . As ever check out @mksreading who’s love for this book inspired me to read it in the first place. #bookstagrammer #books #readersofinstagram #reading #bigbooks #bookish #bookworm #greatreads #goodreads #instabook #bookaddict #modernclassics #bookstagram #readinglife #readingislife #books

Enjoying my flowers this afternoon. I've been anxious for days so I'm trying to find the little things. Little pretty things. 🌺 I'm a little more than half way through A Suitable Boy. In my edition that means more than 900 pages. 😁😁 _________ Do you like reading big books? _________ #bigbooks #asuitableboy #vikramseth #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #igbooks #currentlyreading #currentread #amreading #alwaysreading #bookandflowers
That day that begins by getting a phone call from your local indie bookstore and totally forgetting you had pre-ordered a book last month, and it was in! 😄 A good way to begin your day indeed! . Today’s featured book: “Kingsbane” by @clairelegrand . #kingsbane #clairelegrand #bookstagrammer #fantasyreads #epicfantasy #bookstagram #booksbooksbooks #agoodday #happyreleaseday #booksaremylife #bigbooks
Do big books put you off? Some of my favourite books, including these 2 mammoths by Kate Mosse, are huge in length, and personally I don't mind if it takes me months to get through them. Sometimes however reading a big tome like this is great, particularly if they're fantasy! These books are excellent historical fiction reads by the way 🙂 #currentlyreading #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #katemosse #sepulchre #labyrinth #fantasyfiction #historicalfiction #carcasonne #bigbooks #menwhoread #books #reading
