2014 Chunkster Reading Challenge

Ever since the number of books for the lowest level of participation went up to four, I have not been able to complete this challenge.  I have come close and finished three, but somehow the last one eludes me.  I am back again in the hopes of *finally* finishing this challenge.  Description and details are below. Even though there are no levels, I am aiming to complete four books. 

My books are: 

We are Water by Wally Lamb: 561 pages; completed on March 7, 2014. You can find my review here

The Valley of Amazement by  Amy Tan: 589 pages; completed April 2, 2014. You can find my review here

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt : 771 pages; completed on September 2, 2014. You can find my review here. 


Welcome to the 2014 Chunkster Challenge! I’m your host, Vasilly
Wondering what’s a chunkster? A chunkster is an adult or YA book, non-fiction or fiction, that’s 450 pages or more. 
Rules for this challenge:
  • Audio books and e-books are now allowed. You want to listen to a chunkster on audio? Be my guest. 
  • Essay, short story, and poetry collections are allowed but they have to be read in their entirety to count.
  • Books may crossover with other challenges.
  • Anyone can join.
  • You don’t have to list your book ahead of time.
  • Graphic novels don’t count. Sorry guys but reading a chunkster graphic novel isn’t the same as reading a non-graphic chunkster.
I’ve been thinking long and hard about the levels of participation that have always been a part of this challenge. This year we’re going to try something new: there won’t be any levels
Don’t get me wrong. This is still a reading challenge. Challenge yourself without being locked in to a certain number. If you didn’t read any chunksters in 2013 and want to change that in 2014, come up with a number and try to read that amount.
