Today's Top Five Wednesday topic is Longest Books on My TBR. Not to be confused with books that have been on my TBR the longest. I'm limiting this to books I own because (as evidenced by the other post today) I think that's fun.
Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie - Starting with the 5th largest book on my bookshelves, this one has a mere 647 pages. Actually, I didn't realize it was that long. It doesn't look that big.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss - For some reason, I thought this was bigger than 662 pages. Maybe it's just because the pages are so densely packed with type.
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - I have loved what I've read by Donna Tartt. All one book. This one is a hefty 718 pages. Probably contributes to why I haven't read it.
Novels & Stories: The Lottery/ The Haunting of Hill House/ We Have Always Lived in the Castle/ Other Stories & Sketches by Shirley Jackson - It's kind of cheating, because there are so many stories in the one book, but it weighs in at 832 pages.
The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton - The largest book on my TBR shelves comes in at 848 pages. This book won the Man Booker Prize, but I didn't put it on my TBR until 2 years after it came out. And there it sits. Looking all huge and scary.
What happened to the me who wasn't afraid of giant books? I hope I get my brain back soon.
