Okay, I’ll go ahead and interpret this both ways.

First, size.

the seamstress

“The Seamstress” is about 650 pages of fantastic historical fiction.  This was the first book of over 400 pages that I read after Daniel was born and it gave me pause, I thought for sure it would take me forever, but it was a great book for my irst long post-baby read.  It kept me entertained and reading and I finished it much faster than I anticipated.  You can check out my review to learn more.

As far as *big* reads go, I’ve had two in the last month:

Her Fearful Symmetry catching fire

“Her Fearful Symmetry” is Audrey Niffenegger’s second novel.  It has been a long time since she gave us “The Time Traveler’s Wife” and many people wondered whether she was a one-hit wonder or whether her new book is worth the wait.  Let me tell you, it is worth the wait.  It is being published at the end of the month and is definitely my favorite book of the year so far.  My review is coming on September 23, but you can read my geeking out post.

“Catching Fire” is a totally different kind of book from “Her Fearful Symmetry,” but is just as big, if not even bigger.  Suzanne Collins hit a home run with “The Hunger Games” and people have been waiting with great anticipation for the second book in the series.  Let me tell you, it was just as good, if not better.  Now I can’t wait for the third book in the series!  Check out my (spoiler-free, I promise) review.
