Who needs to go to the gym and lift weights when you have books?
While I am not scared of big reads, there are quite a few books on my TBR that go beyond 400 pages. Today I’m going to be discussing the largest books on my TBR, as well as I few big books that I’ve read. The following page amounts are according to their hardcover editions on Goodreads.
My Dear Hamilton by Stephanie Dray & Laura Kamoie (658 pages)- I’m almost always up for a Hamilton-inspired read, especially one that follows Eliza. My Dear Hamilton is definitely on my priority 2019 TBR.
Renegades by Marissa Meyer (552 pages)- Renegades WILL be conquered in 2019, thanks to the final book in this trilogy coming out later in 2019. I’ve had this book on my physical TBR shelf since 2017, next to my beloved copies of Heartless and The Lunar Chronicles. I’ve heard mixed things about this one, hence why one of the reasons it’s been on my TBR for so long, but I’m ready to give it a read soon.
Until the Last Star Fades by Jacquelyn Middleton (483 pages)- I love a lengthy contemporary. After enjoying London Belongs to Me, I’m excited to read Jacquelyn Middleton’s latest new adult release set in New York City.
Bloodwitch (Witchlands #3) by Susan Dennard- A book on this list that I am for sure reading this month? Susan Dennard’s Bloodwitch! And yes, as much as I am excited about this next installment in the Witchlands series, bless my bookish soul for tackling a 400+ book during college finals season.
The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase #1) by Rick Riordan (491 pages)- Hello big middle grade book! The Sword of Summer has been on my TBR for far too long and it’s another read I should pick up soon.
Uprooted by Naomi Novik (435 pages)- I been seeing even more love for Naomi Novik’s Uprooted lately on Booktube and bookstagram. Is this a sign that I need to add it to my ‘read’ pile ASAP?
The Paris Seamstress by Natasha Lester (455 pages)- While it hasn’t received too much hype (at least in the blogs/bookstagrams I follow), The Paris Seamstress has received really good reviews from some bloggers with similar reading tastes. Any sort of fashion element in a book is bound to sell me to pick it up, let alone being partially set during 1940s France.
Frat Girl by Kiley Roache (448 pages)- I have much love for college YA to begin with, but I want to pick up Frat Girl even more after enjoying The Dating Game. Based on my experience reading Kiley Roache’s latest release, I think Frat Girl will be a 400+ page book I’ll breeze through.
Largest Books I’ve Read
Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas (980 pages)- Kingdom of Ash might actually be the biggest book that I’ve ever read! And me being the Throne of Glass fan that I am, I devoured it over five days! KoA was so heavy to read—and I’m not just talking about those heart-wrenching moments. Even with its bible-thin pages, I found myself either having to lay my book flat on my bed or prop it on my knees while reading. Thank you SJM as always for the upper body workout.
Winter by Marissa Meyer (827 pages)- I’ve come to love big series finales, and Marissa Meyer’s Winter is no exception. A big book with a whole lot of big feels (even though looking back, Marissa Meyer could have been (and probably should have been) a bit more ruthless.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (824 pages)- Order of the Phoenix is probably every Harry Potter fan’s biggest read. It also just happens to be one of my favorites!
The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons (810 pages)- If you’re looking to challenge yourself with a long read, I recommend not picking this one up because of the problematic tropes, especially in its sequel.
