Thoughts On Chapter Lengths (SW#33)

Thoughts on Chapter Lengths 2019 Blog Header Storytime Wednesday - Thoughts On Chapter Lengths (SW#33)

It’s not something people consciously think about because in every novel the lengths are different. For example, Fantasy novels are sometimes split into ‘parts’ with chapters within them to denote the start of another significant event in the storyline, and other novels just have chapters.

Heyo Bookaholics! Well, these posts are always fun! Books I Read! In July I planned to continue with my Rainbow Readathon from June, which lead to me having six books on my July TBR which is just ridiculous.

Nevertheless, I managed to read 2.5 novels *celebration emojis* *finger guns* Which is a nice achievement for me considering I did spend most of my […]
