Well, there's no way I'll have time to start, never mind finish, another chunkster this week so I guess it's time to bid this challenge farewell. I originally set out to read 4 books from this list.
I didn't quite make it, but I did read 3 of them, all of which had been languishing in TBR purgatory for quite some time.
Books completed: (clicking on the title will take you to my review)
The Makioka Sisters - Junichiro Tanizaki (530 p.)
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell - Susanna Clarke (780 p.)
White Teeth - Zadie Smith (536 p.)
Favourite? I enjoyed all 3 of them but The Makioka Sisters is my highest rated book so far this year! Which is wonderful really because I'd started it a few years ago but then got distracted and never made it back to the book. This time though it really seemed to hit the spot. All three of these authors were new-to-me and I look forward to reading more books by all of them.
So, a big big thank you to Nancy for hosting this challenge and the nudge to finally get these books read. And with any luck I'll manage to get through another 1 or 2 more chunksters from the list by the end of the year!
