I love a well written long-ass book; something I can really sink my teeth into, connect with all the characters and just fall in love with! Now what do I consider a long-ass book? Any book that is over 500 pages. As of now, 2016 doesn’t look as crazy as 2015 partly because my wedding is over and all of my big wedding things (engagement part, bridal shower and bachelorette party) all took place in 2015. Now I have all this time to read! So let me tell you about the ten long-ass books that I want to read next year!

Night Film haunted me for almost a year with just the title and the cover alone. When it first popped up on my radar I was instantly drawn to it. I’m always down to read a good slow build mystery that has me guessing around every corner. When the story is really well written, I like to feel as if I’m the main character playing detective and trying to figure out the “who done it”. Night Film by Marisha Pessl literally had me hooked from the first page and left me completely in the dark (in a good way) throughout the whole of the story!
