THE TOP 5 BIG BOOKS I WANT TO READ THIS YEAR (please hold me accountable)

Hey guys, today I am coming at you (shockingly) with a new list. I’ve felt the urge lately to read longer books so I figured I would talk about it. I really enjoy big books and I rarely get intimidated by size. If I’m going to get intimidated, I will probably feel reluctant because of hype or the author. I know that the bigger books I am usually interested in are high fantasy so I tried to spice my list up a bit for you guys!

LONG A Feast for Crows (A Song of Ice and Fire, #4)   Sleeping Beauties   Inkheart (Inkworld, #1)   Thunderhead (Arc of a Scythe, #2)   My Plain Jane (The Lady Janies, #2)

A FEAST FOR CROWS

852 pages

I STILL HAVEN’T READ THIS YET? UGH WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE?

Okay, so to be fair, I did start this in September last year but I only got roughly 60 pages in before getting too tired because I had just finished reading book 3 a few days beforehand.

I do really enjoy this series when I’m reading it so I would really like to finish the series off soon and just read the books as they come out. Because with these books, for some reason size just doesn’t intimidate me.

SLEEPING BEAUTIES

736 pages

I feel like I’ve been going on about this book a lot this year but honestly, I’m okay with that. I’m really hoping this will be the year I get into Stephen King’s books and I’m hoping to get to this one sometime soon. At the moment I’m really interested in his suspense novels but I’m sure I’ll feel the need to read a retelling soon and that I will pick this one up.

INKHEART

563 pages

I need to read this. No question about it, I need to read this, this year.

THUNDERHEAD

504 pages

I feel like I’m going to have to re-read Scythe before I get to this one but I’m totally okay with that. I really enjoyed the first novel and I’ve heard such glowing reviews on the second novel that I can’t wait to read it myself!

MY PLAIN JANE

464 pages

I mean, come on, who isn’t excited about this book? I loved My lady Jane and I thought it was hilarious so I’m definitely going to be re-reading it before My Plain Jane comes out later in the year!

5 Big Books I Own That I’ve read:

Image result for winter the lunar chronicles book

 Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer

Pages: 823

I read Winter at the end of last year and loved it! It’s a great finale to a great series but it is really long so prepare your self (emotionally and mentally).

Image result for a game of thrones book

 A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1) by George R. R. Martin

Pages: 780

I have read the first two books in this series but because these books are SOO long I have to really hype myself up to read them. I’m hoping to read the next book soon but because it’s soo big I’ve been putting it of for a few months.

 

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5)

Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter #5) by J. K. Rowling

Pages:766

Unsurprisingly (because this is on pretty much everyone’s list) this is on here. This book is massive and takes a bit of time to get through but is, like the rest of the series most definitely worth it.

 

The Well of Ascension (Mistborn, #2)

 The Well of Ascension (Mistborn #2) by Brandon Sanderson

Pages: 763

I read the first book in the series a few months ago and LOVED IT so naturally I had to continue eading the series. While I didn’t love this book as much as the first book it was still a solid addition to the series.

Wonderstruck

 

 

Wonderstruck – Brian Selznick 

Pages: 640

Idefinitely recommend that if you’re going to pick up any of these books you pick this one up. This follows two deaf children which is not something you read about often. This novel gave a really real voice to kids without full hearing so this is definitely a must read book.

2 Big Books I Own That I Haven’t Read Yet:

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1)

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle #1) by Patrick Rothfuss

Pages: 661

I have this on audiobook and am roughly halfway through it. I’m hoping to finish this by the end of the year because I’ve heard great things!

Opposition (Lux, #5)

Opposition (Lux #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Pages: 533

I’ve only read the first two books in this series but I do own all of the books so I’m hoping to get to the rest of the books by the end of the year!
