Since I’ve already been talking a bit about my big book year, let’s dive in a bit further. I earlier said that my goal was to read 20 books with over 600 pages, well, I’ve changed that to 500 pages and above. Because a lot of the books over 600 pages I’ve seen is like 1000 pages and more. And that’s A LOT.
But I still have a bit of chunky books on my TBR for this year. These are the ones I have so far ordered in number of most pages:
IT – Stephen King (currently reading when this post goes up), 1340 pages.
His Dark Materials – Philip Pullman, 1102 pages.
Don Quijote – Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, 935 pages.
Anna Karenina – Lev Tolstoj, 926 pages.
Drums of Autumn – Diana Gabaldon, 908 pages.
The Bronze Horseman – Paulina Simons, 810 pages.
The Goldfinch – Donna Tartt, 771 pages.
The Secret History – Donna Tartt, 659 pages.
Wolf Hall – Hilary Mantel, 647 pages.
The Name of the Wind – Patrick Rothfuss, 622 pages.
American Gods – Neil Gaiman, 592 pages.
And now that I’m looking back on this list, every book except American Gods are above 600 pages, haha. And I have a great deal of other books that I want to read that is not included in this list. But I’ll keep you updated on what I read and when I read it!
I haven’t yet decided the order in which I’m reading this books. But I’ll guess I’ll read Wolf Hall soon because I’ve borrowed that from my local library. So I have to finish that one this summer (before August).
Please leave some chunky book recs in the comments! Or tell me your opinion on the books I’ve listed if you’ve read any of them.
Have a great day!
