YAY FOR BOOK TAGS! Today we’ll be talking about some of the larger books we’ve read! I was tagged for this one by the amazing Evelina @ Avalinah’s Books and it gonna be fun so let’s get started! (I will be refering to these books as mountains from now on. So, LET’S GET CLIMBING THESE MOUNTAINS!)
WHAT TO DO! Grab five of the biggest books you’ve read and two of the biggest books on your TBR and… well, talk about them! (lol that was obvious Elise… this is a book blog what else would we be doing… EATING THEM?! THAT’S BLASPHEMY!) (Oh and all of these are based off my Goodreads so LET’S HOPE THAT’S ACCURATE!)
THE BIGGEST COLOSSAL MONSTER OF A BOOK! Let’s call it Mt. Everest! 🙂
Order of the Phoenix
Page count: 870 pages
This probably doesn’t surprise anyone, but there’s actually a story behind it. I LOVE the Order of the Phoenix movie– it’s one of my favorites of all the Harry Potter movies! But the book… not so much. This one is kinda cheating… When reading Harry Potter I was caught in a slump in the middle in the Order of the Phoenix and I MAY have skimmed the last two hundred or so pages… *hides face in shame*
SLIGHTLY SMALLER! IT’S THE K2 OF BOOKS!
Side Note: WHO THE HECK NAMES A MOUNTAIN K2?!
Page count: 759
I DIDN’T CHEAT WITH THIS ONE! I READ ALL 759 PAGES IN THREE DAYS AND LOVED ALL OF IT! This is easily my favorite Harry Potter book and just SO GOOD!
AND THE KANGCHENJUNGA OF BOOKS!
^^^HOW do you pronounce that…?
Page count: 725 pages
ANOTHER LONGER BOOK THAT I READ IN 3-4 DAYS! Up to this point my favorite Mortal Instruments novel was always City of Glass, but Heavenly Fire really surprised me. I loved it and even got a little emotional by the end. It’s always sad to see a series that you’ve been reading since MIDDLE SCHOOL come to and end.
NOW FOR THE LHOTSE!
^Still no idea how to say that…
A Court of Wings and Ruin
Page Count: 720 pages
READ THIS ONE IN THREE DAYS TOO (bc I was trying really hard to finish it before going on vacation… XD) I really liked A Court of Wings and Ruin but it wasn’t my favorite in the series. I have mixed feelings on it as a finale but IT HAD MY BAT BABIES IN IT AND THAT’S ENOUGH FOR ME TO LIKE ANY BOOK!
*YOU HAPPY ANGELA! I FITTED A BAT GIF INTO THE POST! XD
AND FINALLY! THE MAKALU OF BOOKS!
Empire of Storms
Page Count: 704 pages
ALSO FINISHED THIS ONE IN A FEW DAYS! (Are we noticing a trend? Maybe I just read big books quicker… I should read more big books XD) I found most of Throne of Glass to be overly average. It wasn’t until Heir of Fire that I began to understand the hype. Then Queen of Shadows was mostly meh again but EMPIRE OF STORMS PICKED UP! Well until I slept on it and I don’t know I’m settling on a slightly less meh for this one.
Sorry, no fun mountain jokes here… WAIT! Found one! Mountain jokes are a slippery slope. 🙂
Page Count: 1463 Pages
THE BRICK! Yes my friend and I refer to this book as ‘the brick’. I technically have Les Mis marked as “currently reading” on Goodreads but that’s because I’ve read the first 300 pages. I decided to take a break after the first part and haven’t read any farther yet because I loaned the book to my friend for a while. Now she has given the book back (she didn’t actually read it XD) and hopefully I can read some more soon!
AND THE SMALLER!
Why are mountains so funny? Because they are hill areas.
Page Count: 599 Pages
I’ve read an okay amount of Scott Westerfeld. It seems like he always has interesting ideas but not the best execution… I really love the IDEA of Leviathan, and those illustrations are gorgeous, but the book isn’t as great as I want it to be… why did I both put Afterworlds on my TBR AND buy it if Scott Westerfeld’s other books were just meh? Honestly, I don’t know. I got interested in the premise again and hopefully I’ll read it soon and it’ll surprise me!
(Note: I’m pulling tags from a list of people I’ve compiled who said they like being tagged. If you want to be added to that list comment below and tell me! 😊
An accurate representation of me trying to conquer my TBR…
