As university terms around the country have drawn to a close, many students may find themselves at a loose end as to what to do with all their newfound free time. Fear not however, asn here at The National Student, we are here to help you fill those free hours, before the family descend on your homes for Christmas, with a list of more lengthy reads that you may not have had the chance to get to during term time. 1. Shades of Magic Trilogy, by VE Schwab Clocking in at a total of over 1500 pages for the trilogy, Christmas is the perfect time to binge VE Schwab's wonderful series about alternate Londons. If you love Harry Potter, you will love Schwab's inventive adult fantasy which has a very Harry Potter-esque vibe to it. 2. Six of Crows, by Leigh Bardugo Christmas is the perfect time to curl up with Bardugo's team of criminal misfits as the book's main heist takes place in an Ice Court, what could be a better setting for Winter? 3. Game of Thrones, by GRR Martin If like me, you simply haven't had the time to read GRR Martin's fantasy epic yet, this Christmas may be the best time to start, after all, when else are you going to have hours of uninterrupted time to red the whopping 848 pages of the first book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series. 4. Throne of Glass Series, by Sarah J Maas Though the first two books are relatively short, each subsequent installment has got longer and longer and they are now beasts of over 600 pages. There are six books currently out in Maas' bestselling series, with the seventh and final book due to come in September of next year, so this Christmas is a great time to sit down and binge your way through the adventures of Maas' leading assassin Celeana Sardothien.
