#5OnMyTBR – Over 500 Pages

#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!

Hello, reader!

I hope you’ve had a great start to your week! I’m recovering from a busy work weekend and I am tiiiiired. But I have the next two days off so I’m pretty stoked about that. Now, though, it’s time for another 5 On My TBR! This week’s theme is all about books on the chonky side. That’s because I’m featuring five books on my TBR that are over 500 pages. I honestly have a long list of bigger books on my TBR because I’m easily intimidated, haha. Still, I’m sharing five that I would love to get to sooner rather than later.

With that said, let’s get to the list!

#1. The Burning God by R.F. Kuang

Perhaps the more times I put this book into a post, the more likely I’ll actually read it, lol. This book is doubly intimidating because it’s a bigger book and I know R.F. Kuang is gonna hurt me 😭 I just want Rin to be okay but I get the strong feeling that ain’t gonna happen. Still, I really need to finish this series! I loved the other two books and I know I’m gonna love this one.

#2. Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth

I’m so curious about this book. I’ve heard there’s illustrations and it’s like a book within a book which are both aspects that make me want to read it! I’ve also heard a lot of conflicting reviews so that makes me a little hesitant. But I already bought it so I suppose I’m committed now, haha. I’m hoping I love this because the synopsis is super promising!

#3. The Final Strife by Saara El-Arifi

I was drawn to this book primarily because the cover is divine 😍 I’ve been increasingly hearing really good reviews for it, though, so now it’s inched even higher on my TBR! Of course, it’s a bigger book (for me) so I have neglected picking it up. Still, I love the premise, I’ve heard it’s incredible, and I always want to support Black authors. So I’ll definitely be reading it soon!

#4. Bloodmarked by Tracy Deonn

Speaking of Black authors, I really need to get to the sequel to Legendborn. I absolutely adored Tracy Deonn’s debut and I’m eager to learn what happens after that epic ending! I already own Bloodmarked but, of course, I haven’t read it yet. I always do this to myself with highly anticipated sequels… I take forever to read them because I’m scared they won’t live up to expectations. But I’ll be picking this one up soon!

#5. Arca by G.R. Macallister

This is another sequel that I’m eager to start reading! I have an ARC to the next book in the Five Queendoms series that I was excited to receive. Yet, my high expectations have me in a vice grip once again 😂 I really enjoyed Scorpica, the first book, and I’m worried this one won’t be as good. Of course, the only way to find out is to actually, ya know… read it. I’ll get there soon!

What are some books over 500 pages that are on your TBR? Have you read any of the books on mine? Let me know in the comments!

And, as always, happy reading!
