In yesterday’s post I mentioned my intention to forget about how fast I can read a book and just enjoy the process again. With this new focus, I decided to collect a list of larger books that I have been putting off (for no good reason).
I used to absolutely love reading a nice thick book and, if you ask me, there is a certain kind of magic that accompanies them. I’m really looking forward to spending my time in a nice long book or two, or four in 2020!
The Priory of thee Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
Dragons. Need I say more? I have heard nothing but good things about this book. I bought it as a celebratory gift to myself for being able to quit my terrible job last year. Yeah, and I still haven’t read it. This one might actually be the first on my list of thick books to tackle this year.
The Diviners by Libba Bray
From the description of this book, I get the sense that this is supposed to be a paranormal mystery and I’m really excited to give it a go! I’ve been in the mood to read something in a historical setting too, so perhaps I’ll get to it sooner rather than later?
Dracul by Dacre Stoker & J.D. Barker
This is supposed to be a prequel to Dracula and tell the story of Bram Stoker’s own nightmarish encounter with the supernatural. I first heard about this book at the tail end of October last year and have wanted to add it to my book collection ever since.
A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab
I started this series years ago and I have been contemplating to reading this book off and on about a million times since. There is no real reason why I’ve only read a few pages of it besides well… its size. It’s over 500 pages, which is a hefty time commitment, but I’m sure it’ll be well worth it.
