Hello, everyone! It’s Friday again, so that means it’s time for another Top Five! Today, we’re talking about large books! Everyone has a few books on their TBRs that are pretty hefty and a bit intimidating – I know I do for sure. Without any further ado, here are the longest ones I have!
1. Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell – 624 pages
This is being sold as Les Miserables in space, and I’m sold. It unfortunately doesn’t come out until May 2019, so there’s a bit of a wait for this one. But, that does give me time to prioritize because it’s over 600 pages long, geez.
2. The Final Empire (Mistborn) by Brandon Sanderson – 647 pages
I’ve never read a Brandon Sanderson book, and I’ve always meant to – story of my life. This one starts the Mistborn trilogy, and I’ve heard NOTHING but good things about this series. It clocks in at almost 650 pages though, so I’ll definitely have to set aside some major time to read the whole storyline.
3. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – 662 pages
Again, I’ve always meant to pick this one up, but it’s kind of intimidated me for a while. I mean, it is over 650 pages, so I have reasons to be intimidated, but the story is supposed to be amazing, so I just need to bite the bullet.
4. The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – 848 pages
This was by far the largest ARC I’d ever seen when I picked up a copy at this year’s BookExpo. This fantasy is almost whopping 850 pages, and I’m sure some people probably struggled getting this beast onto a plane home from the convention. I’ve never read a Samantha Shannon book, but this one deals with queens and dragons and woman power, so count me in.
5. Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas – 992 pages
It’s weird for me to have a series finale book on my TBR when I’ve only finished the first two books, but it is. Everyone was surprised at how long this behemoth was – almost 1,000 pages! – when their copies came in, and honestly, I’m okay with it. If that’s how many pages Maas needed to end the series appropriately, let it be.
And that is all. Collectively, these five books have a total of 3,773 pages. That’s A LOT. I have my work cut out for me.
Until next time,
