Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Bionic Bookworm, and it’s now hosted by Meeghan Reads. If you’re interested in participating, check out their wonderful blog to get the details and the prompts for each week!
This week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is Top 5 Thicc Books, but I’m modifying it a bit to talk about some of the chunky books on my TBR. As someone who mostly reads smaller books and a lot of romance, some of the chunky books on my TBR really aren’t that big compared to some people’s TBR.
Inkheart Trilogy by Cornelia Funke – Technically I read Inkheart and Inkspell when I was in elementary school, however, I was 11 years old and I don’t remember much of what happened. I’ve been wanting to reread the first two books and finally read Inkdeath for a while now and I’m cautiously optimistic that this will happen this year. According to Goodreads, Inkheart has 563 pages, Inkspell has635 pages, and Inkdeath has 699 pages.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer – This is another series I’ve been wanting to finish for a while now. I read Cinder and Scarlet years ago, but I don’t remember much of what happened. I’m hoping that I’ll have a chance to finally read this series soon because I’ve heard good things about it and I enjoyed Cinder and Scarlet. According to Goodreads, Cinder has 400 pages, Scarlet has 454 pages, Cress has 552 pages, and Winter has 832 pages.
The Rose Code by Kate Quinn – I’ve been wanting to read a book by Kate Quinn for a while now, I just haven’t gotten around to it. This book revolves around Bletchley Park during World War Two and I’ve always been fascinated by the code breaking that happened at Bletchley Park during the war. It also looks like this book is told from multiple points of view and that it has dual timelines, which is usually interesting in historical fiction. According to Goodreads, The Rose Code has 624 pages.
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah – This is another historical fiction book that has been sitting unread on my shelf for far too long. My friend Shanice has spent a lot of time raving about this book, but I still haven’t picked it up even though I enjoy historical fiction set in France during World War Two. According to Goodreads, The Nightingale has 440 pages.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman – One day I will finally get around to reading this book. I don’t know when that day will happen, but it has to happen eventually. I think American Gods has been on my TBR for at least ten years, which is a bit ridiculous. I’m a big fan of Neil Gaiman’s children’s books like Coraline and the Graveyard Book and I also really enjoyed Good Omens and The Ocean at the End of the Lane, so I’m hoping I also enjoy American Gods. According to Goodreads, American Gods has 635 pages.
