The Biggest Books I’ve Read… and Not Read (The Big Book Tag)

I’ve seen a lot of Youtubers do this tag and I thought it’ll be fun to do it too. I made the list ages ago, but I thought I would read one of the book on the biggest books I haven’t read in October, but you guys know that did NOT happen. (I read only 4 books in October. To put that in perspective, I’ve read 4 books already this month and I have exams going on… So yeah.)

Anyway, the idea is to list the 5 biggest books you’ve read and 2 of the biggest books you own but you haven’t read. I’m going to list 5 of each though, mostly to bully myself into reading these books. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, I love all of the books on my read-list, which is weird and cool. ๐Ÿ™‚ They’re all 4 star and above! I really love big books. I remember when I was 13, I went to my school librarian and said, “Ma’am, tests have ended. Please give me a big book to read. Any big book!” She made fun of me for that till I graduated. -.-

I do still admire an author who can write a good book briefly. Like George Orwell. Animal Farm is only 98 pages long! But my personal favourites are always the thick meaty ones that you can make friends with. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway…

Getting down to the list: (From smallest to biggest.)

The biggest books I’ve read are:

  1. 1Q94 by Haruki Murakami –925 pages
  2. Shantaram ย by Gregory David Roberts– 933 pages
  3. David Copperfield by Charles Dickens — 974 pages
  4. Gone with The Wind by Margaret Mitchell — 1011 pages
  5. A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth — 1368 pages
Not Read:
  1. Sacred Games by Vikram Chandra — 916 pages
  2. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy 964 pages
  3. Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace — 1079 pages
  4. Atlas Shrugged ย by Ayn Rand–1088 pages
  5. War and Peace ย by Leo Tolstoy–1392 Pages

People who are reading, (I hope someone is reading) please comment and let me know what the biggest books you’ve read are. And also tell me what you thought of these ones. ๐Ÿ™‚ Especially if they’re the ones I haven’t read. ๐Ÿ˜›ย And… anything else you want to. Feed the Sindhu with your insights. ๐Ÿ˜€

See ya tomorrow, guys!

Hoot.
