Top 5 Wednesday - Books over 500 Pages
Mittwoch, 26. November 2014
Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Lainey & Mindy. Check out the Goodreads page here!
This week we are talking about chunky books with more than 500 pages. This is an interesting one because I'm not too sure if I have many of those, at least not in English. The thing with German books, or those translated into German, is that due to the language they are always way longer then the originals so maybe I will have to cheat a little. We'll see! Again, no particular order here.
#1 The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - 546 Pages
This book. Just this book! It's awesome but the end. Oh the end it gets me every time. So many feels and tears and just I cannot even. This book has the perfect length and just leaves you wanting the final book, The Retribution of Mara Dyer, asap. If you pick up the books now they are already all out so you can marathon them and won't know the awful suffering of waiting a year for the last book to come out. Lucky you.
#2 Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead - 588 Pages
Again, a great final book to a outstanding Vampire series. So many feels, so much action and just so much going on. Perfect.
#3 Battle Royal by Koushun Takami - 617 Pages
So violent and so bloody. It's been a while since I last read this one or watched the movie but it was a good one even though I have to admit I did struggle a bit with the names.
#4 Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare - 576 Pages
What an ending to a phenomenal trilogy. Beautifully crafted and just perfect. I did tear up a little a few times but all in all this was a great read and a perfect ending to The Infernal Devices Trilogy.
#5 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling - 870 Pages
Longest book shortest movie. Weird. But I think this one was one of my favorite Harry Potter books, close behind Deathly Hallows. But it truly is crazy long. In German it is even longer - 1080 pages in hardcover.
