Lately I've been reading a lot of contemporary novels which mean I finish them quick--sometimes one day. Now I'm in the middle of reading Grave Mercy which is about 533 pages. The story is intriguing and I definitely love the main character Ismae, but I keep looking at my bookmark and thinking I have so much more to go....
I'm so consumed with the length, I'm debating on stopping---LUDICROUS. Why? Because I have about 25 other books I want to read, plus a ton of mystery books I need to read for my next WIP.
I haven't stopped reading Grave Mercy yet because it is a good book and I keep telling myself, ignore the length and stop being such a baby who wants instant gratification.
Has this ever happened to you? The last big book I read was GONE WITH THE WIND. I spent almost three weeks reading about the rolling red hills of Tara...lol
Any suggestions or thoughts on pushing through longer books? Do you prefer short or long stories or it doesn't matter?
