My name is Chiara and I am a bookworm.
I’m back with top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is longest books on my TBR list.
So longest books. When I read the prompt yesterday I was a bit flustered. The first thought that came to mind was that I don’t read many long books. In general most of my books are about 350 – 400 pages long and that really doesn’t sound all that impressive. So I dug deer and came up with a small list of seven books, the longest of which I have listed here for your viewing pleasure…
Number 5: Mythos by Stephen Fry.
Number of pages: 416
A page turner by Stephen Fry. I started reading this while I was living in Paris last year but I never got to finish it so it went back to my TBR pile.
Number 4: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell.
Number of pages: 509
My dad brought me this when the film came out during my teens but I never got into it. Someday I’ll read it, but when that ‘someday’ will be … I just don’t know.
Number 3: Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
Number of pages: 552
My brother bought me this book their last year for Christmas. It’s is slowly making its way up the pile, providing I don’t add too many on top of it.
Number 2: Shadow Of Night by Deborah Harkness
Number of pages: 584
I don’t even own a copy yet of Shadow of Night, it is also on my ‘To Be Bought’ list. After reading A Discovery Of Witch, a review of which will be posted tomorrow, I immediately added this to my TBR pile.
Number 1: A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin.
Number of pages: 848
If you’ve not read this series I’m sure it’ll be number one longest book in your TBR pile. It is massive. 848 is not something you undertake lightly. I only got into the tv series in the last 6 months just before it was take off now tv, yet again. I bought the whole series, boxed, in an attempt to replace it but I need some series time to read that.
My honourable mentions go to Heroes by Stephen Fry and Nemesis by Brendan Riechs.
That is all I have time for today.
Once again, my name is Chiara and I am a bookworm.
