Hello Mondays, welcome back to #5OnMyTBR, a meme created by the wonderful E @ The Local Bee Hunter’s Nook. This bookish meme gets us to dig even further into our TBRs by simply posting about five books on our TBR! You can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. You can find the full list of prompts (past and future) at the end of this post!
This week’s prompt is: Long.
I think I like long books and I cannot lie! …Well, I mean, I might be lying a little. I don’t know.
I know that I like the look of them and I also like the idea of challenging myself to read them because who doesn’t like the thought of holding up a big book and saying ‘yes, I have read this big boi’?! But when it comes down to actually getting these books read, it’s a whole different story and I often find that I’m too intimidated to pick them up. I remember the sheer horror of picking up my physical copy of The Priory of the Orange Tree when buddy reading it last year and thinking “WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU DO THIS TO YOURSELF?!” It was a moment of sheer panic with me believing I’d never make it through (how dramatic am I?!). Well, that obviously didn’t last and I can now proudly say that I read that bad boi and it wasn’t actually that painful.
But sitting at a whopping 848 pages, it actually isn’t even close to being the longest book on my TBR! Below I list the top five longest books waiting to be read on my physical shelf:

Do you like long books or do you prefer shorter reads?
Any favourite big bois that I should add to my TBR? 🙂
