Finished Part Two 🎉 Watching my bookmark slowly move thru big books is so satisfying!!

You were right, @LibrarianRyan and @Bookworm54, the story picks up so much after the first part!!

On page 401/1448 🙌🏻 #chunkster

Linsy Impressive! That is one thick book 😳 7d
LibrarianRyan Yeah. All the 17” waste and partying and drooling over———. I‘m drawing a blank on the name. I want to say Lesley but I know that‘s not it. Now the good stuff. If you really enjoy the book I suggest reading the sequel. 6d
Peddler410 I read Gone With the Wind during the summer between sophomore and junior year of high school. That was a rough time and the book gave me something to focus on. I‘ve never seen the movie and I would like to read it again. 6d

teainthelibrary This is how I feel reading the Outlander books! 😂 6d

Pachinko | Min Jin Lee

My #2 book of 2020 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. This opened my eyes to another side of 20th century history - the life of Korean immigrants in Japan. Starting with Hoonie, a club footed peasant in Korea in 1911, we follow his wife, daughter, then grandsons and great grandson through changing fortunes but with prejudice a constant. The book is fast paced for a #chunkster moving from one major life event to another making it very engaging and hard to put down. ⬇️

Centique Theres a great sense of place, family and community in here too. I particularly loved the complexity of the female characters and voices and the way that the hard work of that first peasant generation is honoured and not over simplified. 1w
Cathythoughts Great review! I loved it too. A real insight into the lives of the characters 👍🏻❤️ 1w

I finished Part One!! Honestly, I‘m not sure what to make of these characters yet. What I DO know is that Scarlett O‘Hara is drama, drama.

On page 195/1448 😜 #chunkster

Bookworm54 It took me a while to get into this one, and I got very behind on the buddy read! But I did enjoy this book in the end. I hope you do too! :) She is full of drama though! Haha 2w
LibrarianRyan Yeah. the first 200 pages were the most boring thing I had ever read at that point in time. But it was worth it by the end. 2w

Bookworm54 I really liked this one ☺️ 2w
Zelma That mug is adorable! 2w
Bookish.SAM @bookworm54 I‘m enjoying it so far... almost 3/4 through, but it‘s a brick! 😊 2w
Bookish.SAM Thanks @zelma! I went a little overboard and bought a ton of Christmas-y mugs/dishes... it‘s been a very festive season 😊 2w
Zelma @Bookish.SAM I actually need to buy some more. My very naughty cats got into a tussle last year while packing the Christmas mugs and broke all but 2. 🤬 2w

I started this #chunkster today!! It‘ll take me a long time, I‘m sure. I LOVE the feeling of being fully absorbed in a very long story. 1448 pages!

Also: Never read this before. Never seen the movie!

CrowCAH Wow you‘ll love both the novel and the movie!!! 2w
intothehallofbooks @CrowCAH I‘m so excited!! I can‘t believe I haven‘t read or seen it yet 😜 2w
AmyG Both are great...and quite different. Enjoy. I am jealous! 2w
BethM I‘ve never read it or seen the movie! 2w
LibrarianRyan Love this book. The first 200 pages are boring but the rest is worth it. 2w

Oh my gosh, LOVE. I love multigenerational family sagas. The story follows two French immigrants and their descendants from the 1600‘s to 2013. The families crossed paths and grew widespread over time. So fascinating and painful to see the deforestation that comes with “progress.” The details, the treatment of Native peoples, and all of the ways people died in these harsh conditions were written perfectly. I‘ll reread it for sure. #chunkster

intothehallofbooks I checked it out from the library, but before I was halfway through I bought a hardcover for my own shelves. 4w
Ashley_Nicoletto I‘ve had this sitting on my shelf since it came out. This makes me want to read it right away. 4w

I‘M LOVING THIS. I don‘t know if I can finish it before it is due back at the library, but I love it so much. Over 700 pages! #chunkster #ilikebigbooks

readordierachel I picked up an ex-library copy of this for a couple bucks, but I've been too intimidated to start it. Chunkster indeed. Glad to hear you're loving it! 1mo

I was feeling the need to really get lost in a book, and a #chunkster is usually the way for me to get there.
🤞this one delivers.

umbrellagirl Good choice! 1mo
AmandaL I just borrowed this from the library! I'm workung on psyching myself up to start it. 1mo
Bookish.SAM @AmandaL ... at over 1000 pages, it certainly is daunting! It‘s a little slow so far but a friend recommended it as one of her all time favourites, and I do love a chunkster so I‘ll see it through 😊 1mo

I really loved this book!

This is a very long (900+ pages) and highly researched/detailed slow burn of a horror novel. You will join John Franklin‘s (real) lost arctic expedition as they fall victim to relentless isolation, extreme cold, disease, and starvation... along with a bit of supernatural horror for good measure.

I love a good slow burn #chunkster and if you do too, this may be for you!

vivastory I also loved this one 1mo
