I love this months T5W topics and it’s made me so excited for November! Today we’re talking about something a little daunting…the longest books on my TBR. I have over 70 books on my physical TBR so I chose to go for that instead of my general TBR which has almost 300 books on.
The last book in Throne of Glass comes in at an impressive 980 pages! When I do get round to reading this series, it’s going to take me a while.
Celebrate the tenth anniversary of Twilight! This special double-feature book includes the classic novel, Twilight, and a bold and surprising reimagining, Life and Death, by Stephenie Meyer.
Packaged as an oversize, jacketed hardcover “flip book,” this edition features nearly 400 pages of new content as well as exquisite new back cover art. Readers will relish experiencing the deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful love story of Bella and Edward through fresh eyes.
I’m not quite sure about the page count on this book as I think 780~ includes both Twilight and Life and Death. But it’s hopefully coming up soon on my TBR either way.
City of Heavenly Fire comes in at 733 pages – and I’ll be reading this series over my Christmas break from uni! I’m so excited.
Emma Carstairs is a warrior, a Shadowhunter, and the best in her generation. She lives for battle. Shoulder to shoulder with her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, she patrols the streets of Los Angeles, where vampires party on the Sunset Strip, and faeries—the most powerful of supernatural creatures—teeter on the edge of open war with Shadowhunters. When the bodies of humans and faeries turn up murdered in the same way Emma’s parents were when she was a child, an uneasy alliance is formed. This is Emma’s chance for revenge—and Julian’s chance to get back his brother Mark, who is being held prisoner by the faerie Courts. All Emma, Mark, and Julian have to do is solve the murders within two weeks…and before the murderer targets them.
Their search takes Emma from sea caves full of sorcery to a dark lottery where death is dispensed. And each clue she unravels uncovers more secrets. What has Julian been hiding from her all these years? Why does Shadowhunter Law forbid parabatai to fall in love? Who really killed her parents—and can she bear to know the truth?
Lady Midnight is 720 pages long, but my edition is a very large paperback so I’m sure the word count is through the roof!
And not far behind at 699, my edition of Lord of Shadows. I bet my copies of Queen of Air and Darkness will be similar!
I’m not going to lie, I always find big books daunting and leave them to the back of my TBR which is so bad of me! But I definitely need to fight my fear and pick some of these up soon.
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
