November 7th: Largest Books on TBR
— In honor of #TomeToppleReadathon coming back this month, discuss those big books on your shelf!
It’s been over a month since I did a T5W, eek I might get a post up later this week for updating.
In the meantime, in no particular order, here are some of the biggest books on my TBR that are probably highest priority for me. (This list will probably be different from my official Tome Topple TBR, but we’ll see.)
The Witches: Salem 1692 by Stacy Schiff– Ok, my copy has 498 pages, but I’m still going to be reading this for Tome Topple because other editions have like 510-515 pages, and (in my opinion) 498 is close enough, especially for non-fiction.
The Diviners by Libba Bray– I think this 578 page book has been on my TBR for Tome Topple at least twice. I’ve had this book way, way, way too long without reading it.
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness– At just under 600 pages, this will be one of my biggest re-reads ever, I think. I read the first 2 books in the All Souls Trilogy, but then it took me years to get all of them, so now I have to re-read those so I can finally finish them all.
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski– Just over 700 pages of “I’m not sure I’ll ever actually finish this.” I’ve tried (and failed) several times. This is a book I really wish was available in other formats. I get why it’s not going to work as an audiobook, and as an ebook it would probably be a nightmare. If it were available in large print, though, I probably could have finished it by now. The text is just too damn small for me to read more than a page at a time >.<
Villette by Charlotte Brontë– I’m pretty sure this 570-ish page tome has also made my Tome Topple TBR in the past. I’d really like to dive into it this winter, so I’ll probably save this one until after NaNoWriMo is finished.
I have a lot of big books on my shelves/Kindle, but these are the ones (at this moment) I’d really like to get to soon-ish.
