Big Books To Get Stuck Into This Winter

Are you looking for a chunkster to get stuck into this winter?  Do you relish the heft and challenge of a juicy long book? Do you enjoy the odd doorstop here and there to break up your reading list?  Look no further!

I’ve put together the following list of all books greater than 700 pages long from my GoodReads list to satisfy these needs and linked them to my own reviews where possible:

Clarke, Susanna (Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

Falconer, Colin (When We Were Gods)

Follett, Ken (World Without End)

Follett, Ken (The Pillars of the Earth)

King, Stephen (Bag of Bones)

King, Stephen (Duma Key)

King, Stephen (Insomnia)

King, Stephen (Under the Dome)

Koontz, Dean (False Memory)

Kostova, Elizabeth (The Historian)

Lewis, C.S. (The Chronicles of Narnia)

Paolini, Christopher (Brisingr)

Paolini, Christopher (Inheritance)

Rice, Anne (Blackwood Farm)

Rice, Anne (The Witching Hour)

Rowling, J.K. (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows)

Rowling, J.K. (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire)

Rowling, J.K. (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix)

Stephenson, Neal (Cryptonomicon)

Tolstoy, Leo (Anna Karenina)

Happy reading this winter, and feel free to tell me the longest book you remember enjoying, or perhaps the longest one you never finished.

That’s my four bucks!

    Your list reminded me I want to read Stephen King's Under the Dome!I've read all the Harry Potters, and the latest 700+ page leviathan I read (and loved) was The Passage by Justin Cronin. I just checked – The Book Thief (Mark Zuzak) is 500+ but was brilliant so I'm listing it here anyway.In my TBR pile is The Curse of Chalion (Lois Bujold) – not sure if I'll get stuck into it, but we'll see!

    Loved 'Under the Dome' by Stephen King, definitely a good one for the TBR pile and at 880pgs, it certainly qualifies as a chunkster! Haven't heard of The Curse of Chalion though, so will go check it out on GoodReads 🙂
