Top 5 largest books on my tbr

08 Nov

Copy of Top 5 Wednesday Banner

https://i.imgur.com/XS0XVS1.gifHello, I’m very aware that it’s Thursday. Nano distracted me, baw. I liked this topic though, so I figured a day late wasn’t a terrible thing. Also, the books I’m going to list will be ones that I already physically own.

If you’d like to participate in T5W, you can do so here.

Lord of Chaos by Robert Jordan

Lord of Chaos (Wheel of Time, #6)1011 pages. This is the sixth book in Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series. Have a read the first one? …No. Hehe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive, #1)1007 pages. I’ve only ever read Elantris by Sanderson and kinda wanna tackle his books in publication order. Sooo it might be a bit before I get to this one.

 

 

 

 

 

The Owner’s Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind-Brain Research by Pierce J Howard

The Owner's Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind-Brain Research1007 pages. One day my friend bought me a really big brain book and I may or may not have peed. Brains are so cool, man.

 

 

 

 

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell1006 pages. I’ve had this book for nearly ten years. I remember distinctly bringing it with me to Paris when I went in 2009 and attempting to read it. I think I got fifty pages in and got distracted. Ahahaha.

 

 

 

 

 

The Terror by Dan Simmons

The Terror960 pages. Again, I’ve attempted this book a few times over the past decade. I’ll get to in eventually.

And that’s it! There are a lot of other books I own hovering around 900ish pages, but I love big books and I cannot lie, so it’s totally fine. Happy reading!

    Oh wow, I didn’t know that Jonathan Strange was THAT big.

    And oh man, Robert Jordan.. All of his books should have been half as long, then I might not have lost interest^^

      Ah, well, my copy of Jonathan Strange is a mass market paperback, so that’s probably swelling the page count a bit, haha.

    Lord of Chaos is the next WoT book I need to read too. I’ve tried multiple times to start it but keep DNF’ing it. Damn those long-ass books!

      The whole series intimidates me, ahaha. I’ve heard they waiver from really good to really not and back again all over, so I’m very uh… hesitant.

    I also didn’t realise Jonathan Strange was THAT long… I guess because I listened to it as an audiobook. I do remember it being quite slow though. It had some good parts and characters and a great atmosphere, but in the end it wasn’t a favourite of mine.

        Haha, well I wasn’t speaking specifically about the ending, more in general that in the end on the whole it wasn’t a fav 🙂 But I’ll stop writing now lest I give away anything!!
