First of all, shout out to The Book Duchesses for tagging me for this one! Hop on over and check out their blog!
Contrary to what the title of this tag may have led you to believe, this tag is about the largest books you have in your library as opposed to being a really long tag 🙂
So, don’t worry, I won’t keep you long!
Here are the rules:
- Show the five biggest books on your shelves that you have read and tell a bit about them.
- Show the two biggest books on your TBR and explain what you expectations are.
- Last but not least, tag a few bloggers to do this tag!
Here are 5 of the longest books that I’ve read
Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer (756 pages)
Believe it or not, I read this book in one night… the night I bought it. Yes, I admit it, I loved the Twilight saga when the books were first released. It wasn’t until the movies came out that I couldn’t stand it anymore!
Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas (693 pages)
I blew through this entire series in just a couple of weeks, so it all kind of blurs together. In other words, I can’t really tell one book from the next, it’s just all one story, so I don’t recall this book feeling any longer than the rest of them. Actually, considering the ending, I wish is WAS longer!
The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata (673 pages)
The fact that a contemporary romance novel is on this list is hilarious. Typically, long books tend to be fantasy, maybe paranormal, but contemporary romance? Leave it to the Queen of Slow Burns herself to make it on this list. This is 673 pages of burning so very slowly.
Wait for It by Mariana Zapata (670 pages)
Spoke to soon, MZ managed a second contemporary romance on this list. For me, her books never seem too drawn out even when they are crazy long like this. Wait for It was such a great slow burn, and such a sweet typical MZ story.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas (626 pages)
Obviously the length of this book matters not to me considering this might be my most re-read book of all time. You absolutely must read the first book in this series for the impact of this book to really hit you. There are no words. I was a shell of myself after reading it.
Two of the longest books on my TBR
Galileo’s Dream by Kim Stanley Robinson (578 pages)
I literally picked this book up over 10 years ago. I don’t even remember what it is about and I refuse to read the synopsis before I read it again. I trust that it was interesting enough for me to buy it! Now, whether i ever get to read it before I die considering how many other books I have on my shelves is a different story.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë (507 pages)
Though I’ve never read the book, I know the story well through the many movie adaptations. By far, my favorite adaptation was the most recent with Michael Fassbender. Anyway, I expect that there will be many highlight-worthy lines in this book.
