The Monthly Recommendations Goodreads Group has chosen a theme for April 2017 and it’s …….. Big Books!

Here are some of my favourite tomes ♥

 

 

The eye of the world

 

 

The Eye of the World (Book One of The Wheel of Time series) by Robert Jordan. This tome has over 800 pages, and the following books in the series are all big beautiful books that require an enormous commitment, and likely note-taking, in order to follow along. It puts the “epic” in Epic Fantasy.

 

 

 

 

A Game of Thrones.jpg

The first novel of “A Song of Ice and Fire” series written by George R. R. Martin is A Game of Thrones. This 835 page Epic High Fantasy novel inspired the TV Show, Game of Thrones.

Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.

As Warden of the north, Lord Eddard Stark counts it a curse when King Robert bestows on him the office of the Hand. His honour weighs him down at court where a true man does what he will, not what he must … and a dead enemy is a thing of beauty.”

 

 

Winter_Cover

 

Winter is book four of “The Lunar Chronicles” written by Marissa Meyer. It has over 800 pages, however, it didn’t feel that big when I read it. Marissa writes fantastic stories that wrap you up in a fantastic world, with well-rounded, interesting characters, and a plot that keeps the pages turning fast.

 

 

 

 

 

harry_potter_and_the_goblet_of_fire

 

I cannot talk about big books without mentioning the Harry Potter series. The first few books aren’t tomes – but Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a whopping 734 pages – quite large for a “middle grade” novel.

 

 

 

 

The Forgotten Garden.jpg

The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton.

Cassandra is lost, alone and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident ten years ago, feels like she has lost everything dear to her. But an unexpected and mysterious bequest from Nell turns Cassandra’s life upside down and ends up challenging everything she thought she knew about herself and her family.”

 

 

 

pet Sematary.jpg

 

Pet Sematary by Stephen King

Sometimes dead is better….When the Creeds move into a beautiful old house in rural Maine, it all seems too good to be true: physician father, beautiful wife, charming little daughter, adorable infant son — and now an idyllic home. As a family, they’ve got it all…right down to the friendly cat. But the nearby woods hide a blood-chilling truth — more terrifying than death itself…and hideously more powerful.
