Outlander by Diana Gabaldon was recommended to me. I had honestly only ever heard of this book because it’s on so many ‘lists’ and because I LOVE lists, I decided not to ignore this recommendation and actually picked up a copy of this MASSIVE book. I was not expecting an 850 page monster so I decided to be strategic and read it as my last book of 2018. And I loved it. I fell in love with the story and the characters and I couldn’t get enough. So much so, that I devoured all 850 pages in around 6 days.
