#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!
This week’s 5 On My TBR is focusing on all those books on my TBR that intimidate me. That’s right, I’m talking about the longest books that I still have yet to read! Now, I picked through the chunkier novels on the TBR to highlight a few I would like to get to sooner rather than later. I didn’t realize how many big books I had on there until I started getting ready for this post! I really need to stop letting all these chonky monsters intimidate me because I’m probably missing out on some great reads.
That being said, here are five that I would like to prioritize!
#1. Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
Page count: 1463
This has the honor of not only being the biggest book on my TBR, but all the one that’s been there the longest! Probably because it’s so big. That and it’s a classic and y’all know I have a complicated relationship with classics. Still, I really want to give this one a chance this year, even if it takes me the entire year to read it! Wish me luck.
#2. It by Stephen King
Page count: 1169
There were so many Stephen King books that fit the chunky book category. The man does like to write a lengthy novel. I decided to only prioritize one, though, and It won out. Mostly because this was the first Stephen King book I wanted to read when I decided to give his books a try. Yet I still haven’t read it because it’s just so big 😅
