Mega Reads May
I’ve got a few good books staring at me from my TBR stacks that were begging me to choose them for my May Reading Goals list. Two of them I would consider to be Mega Reads. I define a mega read as a 400+ page novel. I’m not scared of a mega read, just cautious about them.
For me, it’s about considering if I have enough free time to fully immerse in the reading of the novel if it turns out to be super good. For example, getting sucked into a 300 page novel might take away one good night’s sleep. But a great 800 page mega read is going to wreck your entire week and have you walking around like a zombie! Because it’s just too hard to resist reading just…one…more…chapter. The two books I have on my radar are Pachinko by Min Jin Lee, which is a carryover from my April Reading List, and The Love Songs of W.E.B. DuBois by Honoree Fanonne Jeffers.
