#20BooksBy2020 📚📚📚📚📚 I saw this hashtag the other day and thought it was a great way to whittle down my physical #TBR before January 1.
I have 14 weeks to make it happen😊
Just hoping I stick to these 20!
5 are ARC‘s, 2 are for IRL bookclub and the rest are calling to me😉

Mdargusch The Break 🤦🏼‍♀️ 4w
erzascarletbookgasm Good luck! 👍💪❤️ 4w
TrishB Cool 👍🏻 I‘m hoping to get to 3 of these, maybe soon! 4w

LeahBergen I can‘t plan more than two ahead. 😆 4w
MicheleinPhilly You and Ducks! 😂 *insert gif of Michael Jackson eating popcorn* This is gonna be good. 4w
Kalalalatja I‘m interested in a lot of these! Can‘t wait to see what you think 🙌 (edited) 4w
megnews So glad you joined in! I‘m such a mood reader I‘ve only finished 5 but I‘m still trying to get my 20 done! 4w
Cinfhen Thanks @megnews we‘ll see how it actually goes but I‘m happy to at least have a goal in my mind! I‘ll keep you posted @Kalalalatja @LeahBergen @rather_be_reading @erzascarletbookgasm 4w
Cinfhen @Mdargusch did you not like 4w
Cinfhen Which 3 @TrishB ??? Maybe we can buddy them!!??!? 4w
Cinfhen What‘s the over/under page number before I bail on Ducks 🦆 @MicheleinPhilly ???? 4w
CarolynM Great idea, but I'd never stick to the list I made😂 4w
Cinfhen Well, my first few will hopefully be the ARC‘s @CarolynM 🤞🏽🤞🏽 4w
TrishB I will read Testaments soon (not brought yet!), Celestial Bodies and On Earth We‘re Briefly Gorgeous I have ready 😁 let me know when you‘re reading them and I‘ll join in! 4w
Cinfhen You wanna start On Earth this weekend??? @TrishB 4w
TrishB Sounds like a plan 👍🏻 probably be Sunday as it‘s moving day Saturday and I don‘t want to carry that lovely book around with me and get it damaged! 4w
Cinfhen Oh wow!!! Best of luck on Saturday 💜💜💜 @TrishB 4w
BarbaraBB Lots of interesting ones. And lots of #booker ?! 😉😘 3w
BarbaraBB No... its length and the fact that it is a one sentence book scares me too much! 3w
Cinfhen You want to buddy read it together @BarbaraBB ??? 3w
BarbaraBB I just can‘t read 900 pages of a stream of consciousness. I‘ll wait until I no longer can avoid it, for example if it wins the Booker and makes it to the ToB (just like Milkman, which I ended up loving). Also I‘m waiting for a cheaper edition. 😘 3w
Cinfhen Totally hear you @BarbaraBB we‘ll see when I feel the desire to pick it up 🙄🦆 3w

So I go to a “new to me “Library to get a copy of the
#nyrbbookclub book and I see this 692! page
#chunkster in the new books section! Like I need another ginormous book to read! Orwell,McCarthy,Greene, Hemingway,sheesh , couldn‘t help myself.

vivastory It was clearly meant to be! 4w
Hooked_on_books Yup. I‘ve been there. You are amongst your people. 😂 4w

Desperation | Stephen King
post image

I was late to the King game and surprised at how much more to his stories there is than the ‘horror‘ he‘s known for. In fact, I‘ve been surprised at the lack of horror in the books I‘ve read. And I take it back! This was all the horror, gore and creepiness I was expecting and from (seemingly) a less popular of his books!
(Not surprising, a multiverse Rose Madder link😉)

I flew thru this faster than any other #chunkster I‘ve read.

TrishB He writes a multitude of genres! I love that edition! 4w

Sugar, a prostitute in 19th century London, is determined to lead a better life. #MoneysTooTightToMention , so she decides to find someone who can lift her out of her current circumstances. Enter Mr Rackham. Faber‘s epic story is spellbinding. I read this ages ago but can still remember descriptions of Mrs Rackham‘s wife and how dry Sugar‘s skin is. #RedRoseSeptember

arlenefinnigan Sounds an interesting read! 1mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Me too! I still remember the descriptions of the lavender fields. Love this book! 1mo
SauerPatch I‘m glad to see a (good?) review of this. I sometimes wonder what I missed out on because it was a hard DNF for me. :/ 1mo

Librarybelle @arlenefinnigan It‘s a #chunkster , so a big commitment! 😂 1mo
Librarybelle @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Faber seems to have a descriptive flare to his writing. 1mo
Librarybelle @SauerPatch I did like this one! It‘s been at least 15 years since I read it, but I do recall Faber‘s language to be much more literary. Also, the length and the commitment to it seemed rather daunting. But, he somehow grabbed me in his story of Sugar. That‘s why books are so incredible - we each have a different experience with them. I definitely know some who have tried to read this one and just couldn‘t. 1mo
Cinfhen I bought this book because @Centique has not stopped raving about it along with @Reviewsbylola & @Kalalalatja 1mo
Kalalalatja And I won‘t stop until you read it @Cinfhen 😉 1mo
Reviewsbylola Yup, one of my favorites! @cinfhen 1mo

Simona 👍My second favorite book in this year, so far 😁 1mo
rajithr Bravo 👍 1mo
Abailliekaras @Cinfhen yes! And now I want to read The Testaments immediately as well. ;) #bookdilemmas 1mo
Abailliekaras @simona that‘s a big call, but I‘m loving it so far too! I have to ask - what was your top favourite? 1mo
Simona From the longlist - Ducks is my absolute winner, I really liked also Girl, Woman, Other and The Man Who Saw Everything. I‘m currently reading Testaments ... so everything can change 😘 1mo
Abailliekaras @simona me too - trying to juggle both! A nice problem to have 😉 1mo

So today a little bit *hehe* #audiocleaning with the unshortened #audiobook of this #chunkster. 😊 I borrowed the book from a friend and I'm very happy that my library has it as #audiobook because for more than 1000 pages I need very very long. So I can hear and read it. 🤣

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Love this book so much! How is the audio? 2mo
Moony @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled very good! It's bery funny to read and hear parallel. XD 2mo
Buechersuechtling @Moony Oh, I quickly bailed on this one so I‘m very curious what you post about it. If my library had an audio-copy I‘d be sure I‘d give it another try. But as physical copy – no. The writing annoyed me. 2mo
Beholderess I am curious - how does the audiobook handle all the footnotes? 1mo

An American Tragedy | Theodore Dreiser

Repost for @laur89 :
Alright people. I‘m taking this on for #ReadLikeRory (my own #GilmoreGirlsReadingChallenge).

This one is a #CHUNKSTER at over 1000 pages. I‘m sort of intimidated, but it‘ll be Mr. Dreiser‘s birthday on the 27th, so I‘m doing this in honor of him. 🎂

I would totally love to #BuddyRead this with anyone who‘s interested! Hefty novels like these are better with friends... so comment & tag @laur89 if this book catches your eye!

Lcsmcat @laur89 When are you planning to read this? I‘m interested, if I can fit it in. 2mo
Aimeesue The Ebook is only 45¢ if that sways anyone. That's only .00041322 cents a page! A true bargain for a masterpiece. ? 2mo
laur89 @Lcsmcat Starting it this month! But it‘ll be totally informal. Read whenever you want, and share your thoughts along the way/see others‘ posts about the story! 2mo

laur89 @Aimeesue 🤣 That sounds like one purchase... that leads to another... and before you know it, you‘ve spent $30! But that is a compelling reason to join in! 2mo
Lcsmcat Sounds good. Count me in! Do you have a hashtag? 2mo
Lcsmcat Just pulled my copy off the shelf and my edition is _only_ 874 pages. 😆 2mo

Hestapleton @laur89 awesome! :) 2mo
