5 Biggest Books Read

 

1. Scarlett by Alexandra Ripley (823 pages)

One of my favorite books, loved it - thought it was an amazing sequel to Gone with the Wind! 5/5 stars

 

2. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (850 pages)

I really enjoyed this time travel romance, the setting, the writing, the plot, and the research that went into this was pretty amazing but I didn't enjoy all the sex scenes and such. I'm not sure how I feel about the main character Jamie, but I do want to continue on with the series! 3.5/5 stars

 

3. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling (870 pages)

- Currently rereading this one! It's Harry Potter so it's amazing, this one is definitely darker than the previous 3 and more serious! Need to get back into it! 5/5 stars

 

4. It by Stephen King (1,090 pages)

- I really enjoyed this book, the characters, the setting, the plot but man did it drag on and it could use less descriptions, scenes, and detail. But it was still a good read! Didn't scare me though :/ 3.5/5 stars

 

5. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell (1,448 pages)

- One of my favorite books!! it's tied with Jane Eyre as my favorite classics. Rhett and Scarlett are my favorite :) 5/5 stars

 

2 Biggest Books TBR:

 

1. The Memoirs of Cleopatra by Margaret George (957 pages)

- I got this book because it was my sister's favorite but don't think I'll actually read it - I never been that interested in Cleopatra (whereas she was) so who knows. It's not near the top of my list that's for sure

 

2. The Pillars of the Earth (973 pages) and it's sequel, World Without End (1014 pages) by Ken Follett 

These books are so big! I'm not sure when I'll get around to them - I'm worried they will be too religiousy and preachy not really sure what they are about though!
