Hey guys, how you doin’?
It’s time for the first Top 5 Wednesday of November and today’s topic is Largest Books on TBR. This was quite difficult because really, what TBR are we even talking about? Books I own tbr, priority reads tbr, general long books I want to read? I had to narrow it down somehow, I’m not the kind of girl that has lists with less than 100 books anyways (unless they’re the monthly ones of course).
At last, I decided to pull my answers from my unread physical books I own TBR, but only books that I could pick up immediately – so to put any sequel here I’d have to have read all the previous books before it (yes we’re getting that specific), and I’m using the number of pages (and cover) from editions I actually own, regardless if they’re in english or not.
So here they are:
The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) 10th anniversary edition by Patrick Rothfuss – 752 pages
This is a
huge ass beautiful edition, but honestly I don’t intend to atually pick it up until Rothfuss publish the damn third book. I don’t need that “will he, won’t he” stress in my life.
Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1) by Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff – 608 pages
I know, I know, how have I not read this yet? But I fully intend to pick it up soon. Probably when I’m on vacation (and don’t worry, I’ll shadow read it with the audiobook to get the full experience).
Elantris – 576 pages / The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1) by Brandon Sanderson – 608 pages
I haven’t read a single Sanderson book in my life, but I love his writing classes on Youtube. I’ll probably start with Elantris because I like reading stuff in publication order if I can. But this is totally a vacation plan, you can’t blame me, his books are massive and my editions have tiny font.
A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1) by George R. R. Martin – 592 pages
Another edition with tiny font. I decided I’ll only read these books when next season of the tv show airs and the series is over, which will most likely happen way before Martin moves his ass to publish the 6th freaking book, let’s be real. Same with Rothfuss, I want both book series to be over before I dare to commit, because I ain’t about that non-closure life.
A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2) by Sarah J. Maas – 658 pages
Like, Sarah J. Maas’ books are a tough subject. I have mixed feelings on them, but I intend to read the ones I already own because that’s just something I do. So I’ve read ACOTAR this year, and I’m going to pick up ACOMAF eventually. But I’ll probably go the audiobook route because it makes everything easier and, I mean, my physical edition is over freaking 600 pages long so a girl needs all the help that she can get.
Cisne (Swan) by Eleonor Hertzog – 832 pages
Quick shout out to this brazilian book that is probably the longest of all the physical books that I own!
So, have you read any of these? What are the bricks books you have on your tbr? Let me know in the comments. 😀
