Longest Books On My TBR

A couple of weeks back, I talked about some of the longest books I’ve ever read. This post is sort of Part 2 to that.

I have quite a few big books on my shelves that I want to read but some are so huge, I don’t feel like picking them up. The thing about reading a really big book in terms of the page count is that you feel like you’re turning pages and should have made good progress after reading for an hour or two but it doesn’t seem like much if you look at how much the bookmark has moved since the last reading session.

Anyway, here are some of the longest books on my shelves I have yet to read.

Outlander #4 and #5 by Diana Gabaldon

Books by Brandon Sanderson

Books by Stephen King

Books by Cassandra Clare

The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Paperback, 662 pages

The Black Prism by Brent Weeks

Paperback, 661 pages

Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Paperback, 615 pages

The Savior’s Champion by Jenna Moreci

Hardcover, 562 pages

These are going to take me ages to get through. πŸ™ˆ But it’s fun when the story is so amazing that short books just won’t do.

How many of these have you read? Or want to read? Which other big books are on your TBR? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. “you feel like you’re turning pages and should have made good progress after reading for an hour or two but it doesn’t seem like much if you look at how much the bookmark has moved since the last reading session” THIS IS SUCH A MOOD. it also makes me not want to start certain books in the first place, because in the time it takes me to finish them, I probably could’ve read like three others.

    funnily enough, City of Heavenly Fire was one of the first books that came to mind for me, and here it is on your list! it helps that it’s the last book in the series and I really wanted to know how it all would end, but it. was. so. long. and I really enjoyed it, but I haven’t reread it since πŸ˜… (then again, I reread TMI so many times in high school, now I just jump to whichever book, or even whichever scene, I feel like revisiting.) and Name of the Wind is also on my TBR!

    I think it helps that I read mostly ebooks, so I don’t have a physical reminder of how long the book is … but then I peek at the little percentage indicator in the corner, and twenty pages later I’ve only read another 1% of the book? maddening.

  2. I’m wanting to have a reread of Cassandra Clare (and maybe even start on The Dark Artifices), but then I look at the amount of pages and just…decide to pick up something lighter, ll.
    The Name of the Wind, though, that took me about 2 or something months to finish? Mostly because I had other duties, but also because it was a bit of a slow read. A good read, but a slow one.

    • Oh yes, I don’t think I’m going to be rereading the Cassandra Clare books..πŸ™ˆ I just want to be done with them, at this point, unless I really really end up loving The Dark Artifices. 🀷
      The Name of The Wind – I’ve heard it’s quite slow paced and feels even longer but it’s supposed to be amazing and I guess I’m just putting it off because I don’t want to be in the middle of a series when it’s not even finished. There doesn’t seem to be any news about the third book. And I don’t have time to be rereading series for the sequels. πŸ™ˆ

  3. These are some thick books! Cassandra Clare has so many and as I looked through your list I realised how many of those I have read. Stephen King is on my TBR too but I don’t think I’ll pick up any of them for quite some time as they are intimidating!
    Hope you have a great time reading these.

  4. Agree on the bookmark not moving when reading big books. Or percentage mark, for that matter, which is why I’m so torn on reading them in ebook – you don’t have to lug a brick around, true, but there’s even less of a sense of progress. It’s part of why I find them so intimidating.

    I plan on continuing with The Stormlight Archive series this year, and perhaps also starting Wheel of Time, a series that majorly intimidates me – not only are all books bricks, but there’s like 14 of them, and I heard some VERY mixed things…

  5. I have a lot of big books on my TBR too! And I agree with the reading of big books; in order for me to read them I have to feel like the pacing is going by faster.

    • I would definitely recommend! πŸ˜‹ The books are long but there’s just so much adventure and romance and action and twists and turns, a new setting in each book whether place or time period or both..as in time travel. 😍 But in a sort of believable way? At least I could really get into the story. ☺️ And the show is amazing too! Maybe watch the first episode and see if it’s something you’d like to read. They’ve kept the show pretty close to the books and have done a fantastic job recreating everything. 😊

    • ☺️☺️ I’m very excited for the Remnant Chronicles Sahi! I should get to them soon! πŸ™‚
      And I was buddy-reading Cassie’s books with two bookstagram friends but they’ve been inactive on Insta lately. Maybe I should just go ahead and read the rest.. πŸ€” I’ve been trying to read these books since 2017 I think. πŸ™ˆ
