Today's prompt is Five Favorite Winter Reads, taken from our reading last winter. I feel like I'm getting repetitive with my book mentions though so instead I'm going to share five of my favorite chunksters. Chunksters (which I consider to be books near or over 600 pages long) are the type of book I love reading when all of the hustle and bustle of the holidays is done, there's nothing to entice me out of the house into the frigid air, and the evenings are long and dark.
So, in increasing order of pages ...
Starting at 695 pages,
The Meaning of Night by Michael Cox
Up to 781,
The Quincunx by Charles Palliser
A nudge to 782,
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
A jump to 1024,
David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Finally, a pair to top it off at 1168 pages,
Blackout/All Clear by Connie Willis
Do you like reading chunksters in the winter? Which is your all time favorite?
