In honour of TomeTopple this weeks topic is longest books on your TBR. I plan on participating in TomeTopple later this month, it’s one of my favourite ReadAThons and I definitely need the motivation to read the longer books. So some of these could potentially end up on my TBR! Lets get into it. 


1: 2666 by Roberto Bolaño ➝ 1,126 pages



I’ve really enjoyed this authors other (shorter) works but have been putting this off because of the length. It’s a sort of dystopian/apocalypse book set on the US and Mexican border. Bolaño is a border writer and this is his most famous work.




2: A Dance with Dragons by George R.R Martin ➝ 1,125 pages

A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire, #5)

Just coming short of 2666 is this ASOIAF book. All the books in this series are ginormous which is why I’ve been mostly sticking with the TV show and not the books. I’ve only read the first two and some of the third.




3: A Feast for Crows by George R.R Martin ➝ 1,061 pages



Another ASOIAF book …. I said they’re all too big! I really should try to read these before the next season comes out. I do know A Feast for Crows is lots of peoples favourite.




4: IQ84 by Haruki Murakami ➝ 1,061 pages



This is a really recent addition to my TBR. I heard this book talked about and it made me interested, but I did not realise it’s so long! I still hope to get to it one day.




5: Under the Dome by Stephen King ➝ 880 pages



So, unpopular opinion but I don’t really care that much about reading Stephen King? That being said, this is the one book of his I have on my TBR, because of the TV show, and I tried to start it twice but wasn’t in the mood. It’s been on my TBR a while so I need to pick it up.




Those are all the longest books on my TBR! I really need to start reading some of these longer books instead of letting them sit FOREVER. What are the longest books on your TBR?

until next time!

  1. I started 1Q84 and it’s LONG but really good. Like, it’s been 350 pages and the plot is *just* starting. But it’s so well written that I don’t really care about the slow plot. And I’m pretty sure I’ve read A Feast for Crows, and it was definitely my favourite of them!


  2. I tried to get into 1Q84 and Under the Dome and unfortunately, it still hasn’t happened. It’s one of those books I try to start reading and then realizing that the year has passed and I have not read the entire book. Haha. For me, it’s more because I struggle to be invested with characters I either do not care for (like I can’t relate to them) or there’s just too much characters (imo) to keep track. Hence, I lose my interest quickly rather than I would like.


  3. holy wow. i usually steer pretty clear of long books out of fear and cowardice, though i’ve definitely got some 600+ pagers on my tbr. but idk if i have anything this long!!


    1. omfg me too?? literally exactly the same thing. The fact I’ve tried to start it twice and stopped makes me think I’ll never finish but I also like .. tell myself I want to read it because I liked the show jfghdjkf
