Hi everyone, hope you all had a good week since I last did one of these, mine was as it always seems to be these days, very quiet!
Anyway, it’s Tuesday, and so that means another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week we have free rein to do whatever topic we’d like, so I’m talking the Top Ten Longest Books On My TBR. I do have a tendency to feel quite intimidated by long books and avoid them because they take me such a long time to read, but these are all ones I want to get around to at some point!
- House of Earth and Blood-Sarah J Maas-803 pages
As always, Sarah J Maas’ newest book is a CHUNKY ONE. I’ve heard really good things about this one but obviously it’s a massive time comminment! I think I might check out the audiobook before the end of the year as I tend to find larger books slightly more palatable in that format.
2. A Court of Wings and Ruin-Sarah J Maas-699 pages
I’m not going to lie, I’m a little ashamed of how long this one has been on my shelf, I bought it at YALC in 2017 and for whatever reason have been putting off reading it ever since! Still, we now know that A Court of Silver Flames is coming out next year, so I plan on catching up before it comes out.
3. Dreams of Gods and Monsters-Laini Taylor-613 pages
I was so disappointed by Days of Blood and Starlight when I read it in 2018 that I haven’t got around to reading the final book in the trilogy. I will at some point but it’s not top of my list at the moment.
4. Seasons of War-Derek Landy-592 pages
The latest Skulduggery Pleasant book only came out in April, so I haven’t left it that long yet, but I’m hoping to fit it in before the end of the year, because Bedlam ended in such an exciting place and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
5. It’s Not Ok To Feel Blue-Scarlett Curtis and contributors-576 pages
This mental health anthology is a thick one! It’s made up of different essays though, so I think it will be one that I dip in and out of between reading other books.
6. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue-VE Schwab-560 pages
VE Schwab’s latest release isn’t out till October but it’s definitely a chunky one! I can’t wait to finally get my hands on this one, it’s my most anticipated release of this year.
7. House Rules-Jodi Picoult-554 pages
One of the few books in Jodi Picoult’s back catalogue that I have yet to read, I wasn’t expecting this one to be as thick as it was when I got it! Murder mystery is not a type of story I’ve ever read from Jodi Picoult before so I’m interested to see what she did with it.
8. Inkheart-Cornelia Funke-544 pages
I feel like kind of a bad bookworm for not having read this one yet, since it seems to be one of those classic “books about books” and it definitely sounds like the sort of book that I would love.
9. The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle-Stuart Turton-528 pages
I’ll admit, crime is not my usual genre but I heard so much good stuff about this one that I just had to get it. I still haven’t got round to it yet but I’m hoping to soon, I really want to see what all the fuss was about.
10. Thunderhead-Neal Shusterman-515 pages
I meant to read the sequel to Scythe much earlier, but when it comes to narrowing down my reading choices when I have little time, the 500+ page books are the first to go. Now that the trilogy is complete, I definitely need to get around to reading this one soon.
So there we go, these are the longest books on my TBR at the moment! Have you read any of these? Did you enjoy them? Are you slightly intimidated by longer books? Let me know in the comments!
I’ll be back next week for another Top Ten Tuesday, this time we’ll be talking about Books With Colours In Their Titles, and honestly I don’t think I know many, at least not that are on my TBR, but I’ll give it a go!
