We're at the last Top 5 Wednesday for this month! And this week's topic is to choose Top 5 Books Over 500 Pages. I really wish I had read a lot more thick books that are over 500 pages, but it turns out I don't have that many to choose from. I actually really love thick books, because there can be lots of in depth development for the characters and the story as well. However, they do took much longer to read—especially books in English. But I really enjoyed reading these thick books that I'm going to list in this post, in no particular order ;))
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter, #6) by J.K. Rowling
Mass-market Paperback Edition, 768 Pages
When I first came across the topic, I'm already sure I'm going to list one of Harry Potter books; and it turns out the thickest one that I had was Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince! I remembered how my hands were sore after holding the book through the night, because I have the mass-market paperback edition, it's a bit small and thick. But it's all good because the story kept me reading and forget all that thickness.
A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) by George R.R. MartinMass Market Paperback Edition, 835 Pages
It took me a month to finish this book, and I actually cheated by reading it with my Kindle instead of reading the paperback version—because it was super thick with teeny-tiny writing and thin papers. When I read this book in my Kindle, it doesn't feel as intimidating and I managed to finish this hunk of a book.
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
Mass Market Paperback Edition, 809 Pages
One of my most favorite thick books ever, since it doesn't feel that thick at all! I fly through the pages because everything is so fast-paced and exciting, and it certainly kept me up all night reading it. I wouldn't mind if this book was even thicker than it already is, I want more!
The Book Thief by Markus ZusakPaperback Edition, 552 Pages
This one actually looks pretty normal, because it's only a little bit over 500 pages; but I absolutely love this book and how the story was able to engage me emotionally. It's a really good book and my heart still flutters every time I think about the characters.
Gone Girl by Gillian FlynnMass Market Paperback Edition, 566 Pages
I initially chose The Return of the King for the last choice, but decided to switch it with something I recently finished: Gone Girl. This book took me a long time to finish, but it was all worth it.
So this is the end of November's Top 5 Wednesday! Soon it will be December, and Christmas is just around the corner! I'm going to spoil myself with just a littleee bit of book shopping next month. Oh, and I'm also excited to see December's topics for Top 5 Wednesday. Hopefully I can join in every week. Bye!
