Top Ten Tuesday 10/9: Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

ttt

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

October 9: Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

While I like to say that I like big books, I don’t like being in the middle of a book for more than a couple of days. For some reason it makes me feel like I’m not enjoying the book enough because it’s taking me a week to read but it’s over 700 pages. I hope you understand what I mean. Here are some of my favorite big books.



A Dance with Dragons (1,016 pages)
Voyager (870 pages)
It (Currently reading so I’m counting it, It has 1,156 pages)
The Name of the Wind (662 pages)


Mistborn (672 pages)
Anna Karenina (803 pages)
Lady Midnight (720 pages)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (766 pages)


The Pillars of the Earth (973 pages)
Winter (827 pages)

I’ll Give You The Sun

Not only is this one of my favorite contemporary stories and one that I think about all the time, but it’s also one of my favorite book covers!

I’ll Meet You There

Another favorite contemporary story and one that I want to reread soon.

Illuminae

I know I just talked about Gemina in Letter G post but I can’t talk about book 2 without talking about the book that started it all! Especially since this book has a lot more of AIDAN and that alone makes this book priceless.

WWW Wednesday 10/3

WWW WednesdaysYay, it’s October!!
Happy October everyone!
I love this month, it feels like fall is finally starting and I am in the mood to read a lot. This is going to be such a busy month for me. I want to read lots of books, I need to do some NaNoWriMo prep, and part of that means drafting and scheduling a lot of blog posts. I am going to be glued to a keyboard for the foreseeable future.


WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words. Simply answer the following questions:

What did you recently finish reading?

To Kill A Mockingbird
by Harper Lee

Cats Cradle
by Kurt Vonnegut

The Bell Jar
by Sylvia Plath

I talked about the three books above in my September Wrap Up and my Banned Book A Thon wrap up so I’m just going to link those. It just feels too redundant to copy and paste my thoughts and I don’t have anything to say about them.

Wildcard
by Marie Lu

This was so good! I loved everything that happened.


What are you currently reading?

Sharp Objects
by Gillian Flynn

I’ve been hearing so much about this ever since the tv show came out and I’ve actually been saving my Gillian Flynn books for October since last year, so it’s time.

It
by Stephen King

I’ve been intimidated by this book for so long, yet I am so curious about it and my curiosity is getting the better of me. I figured the best way for me to read this is in sections and I did a little math and worked out that I read just 40 pages every single day, I’ll finish this on Halloween. Then the BF and I are going to rent the movie and that’s how we’re planning to spend Halloween. I am 84 pages in on my second day so well see if I can stick to the plan or if I’ll go on a binge and read it in a couple days.

The Two Towers
by J.R.R. Tolkien

I am in the middle of so many different books it’s ridiculous. I was reading this for a while but I needed a break so I’m just planning on reading a little bit of this every night before I go to bed. I am loving what I’m reading but it just got really dense and a bit slow.


What do you think you’ll read next?

Catwoman Soulstealer

I would like to finally get to this and I think I’m in the mood to read it.

Banned Book-A-Thon Wrap Up

BBW18facebook

I’m really happy with the number of books I was able to read during the week. I got to read some classics that have been sitting on my TBR for way too long. My enjoyment levels were pretty 50/50 with what I read, for example, I gave two of the book 3 stars each and the other two books were both 4 star reads. I think next year I’m gonna try to branch out from reading classic banned books and look at more diverse banned books. If you have any recommendations please let me know.

Let’s get into what I read.
