Top 5 Tuesday: Thick Books I have Read

Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and now being hosted by Meeghan reads.


I love this weeks topic for Top 5 Tuesday as I love reading massive books. I think there is something so comforting about reading a massive book, especially when it is a really good book. Here are 5 thick books that I have read in the past.

A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth

1474 pages

I read this fabulous book whilst in sixth form and absolutely loved it. I remember the copy I had had tissue paper thin pages. I loved that copy but sadly I leant it to my English teacher and she never returned it to me. I have another copy but it doesn’t hold the same memories as I original copy.

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

1392 pages

I love Tolstoy! Anna Karenina is one of my all time favourite books and but this is definitely a close second. I remember carrying this book everywhere so whenever I had a minute to spare I could read a few pages. This also meant I had to have a larger than normal handbag to accommodate the massive book.

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

1037 pages

This book spent a long time on my book case but a few years ago I finally got around to reading it and although I did enjoy it Scarlett O’Hara really drove me up the wall at times.

Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens

880 pages

I love Dickens but I do remember this was a hard read for me back in 2006. I really should reread it again and refresh my memory of the story.

Coming Home by Rosamunde Pilcher

977 pages

I love this book and fully plan on rereading it. This book was where I discovered my love of Pilcher’s amazing writing. I also read this book on my kindle but it just didn’t have the same feel as reading a physical book.

So there are 5 thick books that I have read in the past and will probably happily reread again in future. Hopefully I get to read some more thick books this year.

What thick books have you read in the past or plan on reading soon?

Happy Reading
