Top 5 Wednesday | Largest Books on TBR

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

the name of the wind cover

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

Illuminae cover

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!

  1. Big books, you mean books with an excuse for procrastinating. I’m not sure what are the biggest books on my tbr but a few come to mind such as
    -Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
    -The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
    -Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
    -Lost Stars by Claudia Gray
    -Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi (though I did read a hundred or so pages and they flew by pretty fast so I’m not super scarred of this one)

    1. haha true! I always say I’ll read them when I’m on vacation and then never do. But this time I really wanna try.
      Strange the Dreamer and Children of Blood and Bone are on my physical tbr as well, but who knows when I’ll get to them. Hopefully sometime next year. ;D

    1. lol you know what, same! Between reading ARCs and listening to audiobooks, I got so used to reading in english that sometimes I forget to pick up the ones in my own language. The last one I think it was Fangirl back in September!
      But are you from Brazil or Portugal?

    1. I know! I almost started it a couple times, I listened to a few minutes of the audiobook, but life got in the way. But from that little bit I just know I’m gonna love it (even though I’m not the biggest scifi fan haha). Don’t worry, it’s a priority read for sure!

      I hear so many great things about sanderson’s books and I must get to them soon (even though the lenth is always scary). I want to start with Elantris because I have a thing for publication order and I like seeing the author’s writing grow. Save the best for last and all that jazz haha
      Oh thanks, I hope so too, they are terrifying indeed, especially for me that am both a slow
      AND mood reader!
