The Longest Books On My TBR

Hello bookworms!!

Today’s post is a pretty straight forward one. I am just going to be talking about the longest books I have on my owned TBR. I got the idea to do this post from Heather @ The Sassy Book Geek. She done a post like this last month and I thought it would be fun to go through my books and see which ones are the longest and maybe talk about why I haven’t read them yet which like Heather said it’s mostly because they are intimidating. Also I am going by the page count that Goodreads has listed so I’m not sure how accurate I will be but it should be pretty close. So without further ado here are the longest books on my TBR.

 

1.) War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy (1,392 pages)

 

Last year I found several classics on Amazon for free and I really wanted to read more classics so I added several of them to my kindle a few of which you are going to see on this list today

2.) Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy (964 pages)

Again another classic I got with every intention to read but have still yet to read it.

3.) Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (868 pages)

I am pretty sure I found this book at a library book sale last year. It was something I kept hearing about so when I found it I said what the heck I might as well get it.

4.) Until the End by Christopher Pike (846 pages)

This is actually 3 books in one and I am pretty sure this is the book I have had for the longest time. I remember I started this when I first bought it but for whatever reason I stopped reading it.

5.) The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt (771 pages)

This is another book that I heard people talking about so when I found it at a library book sale I decided to go ahead and pick it up even though I have no idea what it’s about.

6.) Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff (688 pages)

I am actually planning on reading this entire trilogy this month. I put off reading these books because I have a feeling that once I get into them I am going to want to binge read them.

7.) That Moment When by multiple authors (626 pages)

I honestly don’t remember getting this book but I am pretty sure that I got it last year when I kept getting free kindle books from Amazon.

8.) Obsidio by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff (615 pages)

See #6

9.) City of Glass by Cassandra Clare (592 pages)

I just recently got the first 3 books in this series. Every time I started to buy them before I always talked myself out of getting them for some reason. Well now I have some of the books so I have no excuses anymore.

10.) Moby Dick by Herman Melville (582 pages)

I told y’all there was going to be a few classics on this list. Hopefully one day I will actually get around to reading some of the classics I got last year.


Have you read any of these books? What did you think? Do you think I should read any of them immediately? Are you intimidated by long books?

      1. Oh I know!! 😊 I really want to read it I guess I keep putting it off because of the length of it but also because historical books tend to be hit or miss for me and I’m worried I’m not going to like it.

  1. I have read The Goldfinch and listened to the audiobook. I felt the story “come alive” more so with the audio book. I also have read The first 4 books in the outlander series and City of Glass. I will admit that Anna Karenina is on my TBR too. I want to read it badly, but I keep putting it off for that “perfect” time.

      1. Yeah, I did not used audible for the audiobook. I was lucky and my library had it, sorry. Yeah I can totally see it being intimidating. I would say if you don’t like the first 5 chapters or so you wont like the rest of it, if that helps.

  2. I am currently on book 5 in Outlander series, and it’s almost 1500 pages :S I love the series very much but I’m also totally intimidated by the amount of pages and time I’ll need to finish it, and I’m a slow reader. :/ We were forced to read Anna Karenina and War and Peace in high school, and that made me dislike Russian classics in general and long books. :/ Wish they hadn’t forced us, that way maybe I’d pick up those books by myself later in life, but high school ruined it for me eeek :S

    1. I am seriously contemplating picking up outlander tonight and giving it a try because I’m not in the mood for any of the books I put on my TBR right now. The page count is very intimidating but I think I can get past that if I like the book I’m just worried about it being a historical book because those tend to be hit or miss for me. I know when I was in high school there were some required books but I can’t remember which ones they were. Heck I could have already read some of the classic novels and I wouldn’t remember.

      1. Hmm well it’s not boring historical fiction, it’s quite adventurous and funny often, and sad, but yes, Diana can overdo it on the descriptions sometimes, hence the page count, but I was never bored, and I get easily bored. 😀 Don’t know what I’m trying to say here, but if you do read it I hope you like it! 🙂 We had to read A LOT of Russian classics, and even back then I figured out I liked English and American ones more, so it was forceful and painful to read those epics ughh :/
