When you're behind in your reading challenges and want to cover #LRC8 #over400pages in a way that technically isn't cheating, but also is definitely cheating. 😂 #litsyreadingchallenge

I've finally finished!!! 731 pages of fascinating details of this extraordinary man's life. We have so much to be thankful to A. Ham for, and he truly does not get enough recognition for all the things he did for our country. Great read!!

#LitsyReadingChallenge #LRC8 #over400pages

ReadingEnvy "..there's a million things I haven't done" like read this book! We have an economics professor teaching a first year writing seminar on Hamilton and the students have to all read this book! 3y
Laura317 Great job! I have trouble getting through really long books. I'd have to do it as a book club or buddy read to get through. 😜 3y
Nebklvr Woohoo! Great job! 3y
jessberk13 @Laura317 @Nebklvr thank you!! I am definitely feeling proud after this one! 3y

Just about 300 pages left. Adding this to my #LitsyReadingChallenge as #LRC8 #over400pages

Excited to finish this, not only because it's so interesting, but I feel that I will absolutely gobble up "regular length" books for a decent time after this one! ???

Aims42 Haha! I read the tagged book which took me a little over a month to read. I loved it, but it was nice to get back into reading a new book every 2 weeks again 😂 3y
Little_Reader Your ring is gorgeous! 3y
jessberk13 @Aims42 right! I already have my next book picked out! 3y

Aims42 @jessica nice! What's next?? 3y
KCorter That's one if my favorite things about reading big books. You simply fly through smaller ones afterward. 3y
jessberk13 @Aims42 one of my August #BOTM picks, I can't wait! 3y
jessberk13 @KCorter I'm hoping that's the case!! I'm way behind on my count for the year! 3y

I finished a book for the #springcleaningreadathon Hooray! I can't really give this book a normal review, because there were moments when I really enjoyed it, and moments when I hated it. I probably should have read a different book for my first Chabon. Ah well. #LitsyReadingChallenge #LRC8 #over400pages #LitsyAtoZ #LetterC

I loved the first book in this series and the second one was just as good. Lockwood, Lucy and George are great characters and I love the sarcastic banter between them. This series is spooky, fun, and sometimes gory. Each book deals with a new case, however there are continuing story lines so read them in order. I read/listened to this one and either medium is great. Read in March. #LRC8 #morethan400pages

MarriedtoMrT I love this series! 3y
LA_Mead I love this series! Can't wait for the next one to come out. 3y

For the first book in s series, it was pretty good. I have read that as the series progresses the books get better, so I'm hoping that persevering with it will pay off. If you like Inspector Banks, DI Lynley or Rebus, this series will be right up your alley. My #LRC8 #Over400Pages book for the #LitsyReadingChallenge

Currently halfway through Dead Simple by Peter James, this is The First Book In A Series You've Never Read Before for the #popsugarreadingchallenge & it's my #LRC8 book for #over400pages for the #LitsyReadingChallenge I've finished 11 squares so far!

Michelle_mck Oh is it good? 3y
Lizpixie I've just finished, it was good. Not anywhere near as good as Peter Robinson or Elizabeth George, but still good. It is the first book in a long series, so I'm hoping they get better with practice. He does have great reviews for his later novels so I'm willing to give him a chance. 3y
TrishB I love these - Roy Grace develops well. 3y
Michelle_mck Good to know - I will give it a go 3y
JazzFeathers That cover alone would do the trick for me ;) 3y

I really wanted to love Pachinko. But it's between a pick and so-so for me. The first half was great but I feel like it spiraled towards the end. It actually felt like a Korean drama, which I'm not a fan of. That said, it was great reading about characters that felt very familiar. And learning more about the history of Korea is always a good thing.

Cinfhen I felt the same way, the ending was rushed & the middle dragged but overall I enjoyed the multi generational story. 3y
Reviewsbylola Ah man, sorry you didn't love it! I can see why it doesn't work for some readers. 3y

I finished it! I wasn't all that impressed with the first half-I wasn't relating much to the characters or story-but things started clicking for me & I had to dedicate some time this morning to finish it & find out what happened. Ultimately I enjoyed it--there were some good twists & I was only partially right at my guesses of the end--so points for that. I'm now watching the first episode of the HBO series.👍#litsyreadingchallenge #LRC8 400+pages

JenFowler They did such a great job casting the characters! I've only watched the first episode, but I was impressed 3y
AJBowers It's so good!! 3y
TheBookStacker The show is just as good as the book, a slow burn character study of motherhood and friendship. 3y

LeeRHarry Not enjoying the show as much as the book- maybe because I'm still a little annoyed that it's not based in Sydney - hehe 😏 3y
Dragon Just watched tonight's episode and Reese Witherspoon is just awesome 👏 3y
Cinfhen I'm crushing on Reese, she's the ONLY reason I'm sticking with the miniseries (it's way too noir for my liking) and Laura Dern is killing it too! What's with the casting of Ed?!? 3y
LauraBeth I'm enjoying this series so much! For me - it has been better than the book 😀 3y
DebinHawaii @JenFowler @AJBowers @TheBookStacker @LeeRHarry @Dragon @Cinfhen @LauraBeth I was only able to squeeze in the first two episodes so far but I liked it a lot. I think the casting overall is really good. I'm looking forward to watching the next two & catching up this week! 😀👍 3y
