7 On Sunday: Longest Books on My TBR

It’s been quiet a while since I’ve done a 7 on Sunday topic! This week, I was intrigued to see that the prompt was for the longest books on our TBR. I could have sworn I’d already done a similar topic at some point in the past, but I’ve only been able to find a post about the longest books that I’ve already read (found here), and even that one is out of date now since it doesn’t include the Throne of Glass series, which I read last year. I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the books that are still on my TBR, and try to hype myself up to tackle them. I almost feel like I need to make two separate lists here, since the longest are all huge classics, so I’ll list the first 7 of those, and then a bonus list of the 7 longest non-classics, since it felt a bit weird to exclude those. Most of those longer classics are on my TBR more as a long-term goal, so I generally count my “real” TBR as starting after them.

7 on Sunday is a new weekly project that was started by Grace of G-Swizzel Books, with a weekly topic for videos and/or blog posts! The official Goodreads group with topics can be found here.

The “true” longest books on my TBR (books that were actually listed first by number of pages on Goodreads):

1) Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (1463 pages)

2) War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy (1392 pages)

3) The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (1276 pages)

4) The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (1248 pages)

5) The Memoirs of Cleopatra by Margaret George (1139 pages)

6) The Arabian Nights by Anonymous (1049 pages)

7) The Collected Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe (1040 page)

The longest books from where I feel my TBR “really” starts:

1) Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith (944 pages)

2) The Autobiography of Henry VIII: With Notes by His Fool, Will Somers by Margaret George (939 pages)

3) 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami (925 pages)

4) Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare (912 pages)

5) Night Film by Marisha Messl (894 pages) — Technically Vanity Fair was next on the list, but I consider that one of my long-term goal books since it’s a lengthy classic

6) Lethal White by Robert Galbraith (776 pages)

7) The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt (771 pages — I only have a mild interest in this one, and might even remove it from my TBR)
