Top 5 Wednesday: Largest Books on My TBR

Hello everyone! Today I'm back with another Top 5 Wednesday, what a surprise! November has been going pretty well so far. If you weren't aware, I'm participating in NaNoWriMo and I'm behind a little, but either way I'm making progress on a project I've been thinking about for a very long time! I've also read two books already, so I'd say we're doing well!

Anyway, this week's topic for T5W is the largest books on my TBR. If you don't know what TBR means, it stands for "To Be Read." I have a pretty large TBR that I am a little ashamed of, but I'm taking strides to reduce it. Either way, here are some of the biggest books on my TBR. I may have some that are larger, but these are among the ones that came to mind first! It should also come at no surprise to anyone that most of these are adult high fantasies...

At number five, we have The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss at 662 pages for the US paperback. I've heard nothing but good things about this book and yet, in all my years of owning it, I have yet to read it. I don't know why I'm intimidated, since I've read many books that are longer than this, but I am just worried that my expectations won't be lived up to. 

For number four, I picked Malice by John Gwynne at 672 pages for the paperback. This is one that I discovered very recently and haven't picked up yet, but I'm excited to get to when I finally get the time. It's a little bit longer than The Name of the Wind but it's still nowhere near as long as the longest book I've ever read.

Next, at number three, we have Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare at 701 pages for the US hardcover. Gasp! I know, I haven't read it yet. But I'm planning on doing a series binge when the final book comes out. I've noticed that I'm generally really bad at reading Cassandra Clare books when they come out, but when I finally read them, I love them! Here's to hoping I can binge this trilogy over winter break. 

At number two, we have Dragonfly in Amber, the sequel to Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon which comes in at 743 pages for the US paperback. I know exactly why I haven't read this one yet. I watched the first season of the show before I read the first book, and I think that really helped with how dense these books are. But when I tried to go into this one without watching the second season, I was really struggling. Therefore, I need to rewatch the first season of the show and continue on so that I can then read this book, which I plan on getting to at some point! 

And, lastly, at number one we have The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson at a whopping 1,007 pages for the US hardcover. This is one of my friend's favorite series and I've been meaning to get into Brandon Sanderson's writing for a while, so I definitely plan on reading it at some point in the next year! I think with this one it is definitely a size intimidation issue, but since I recently finished a 980 page book, I think that I can get this one done pretty easily. I just have to find the time! 

Thanks for reading!
