4 Thick Books I Want to Read This Year

Posted March 10, 2020 by Stephanie in General / 7 Comments

In yesterday’s post I mentioned my intention to forget about how fast I can read a book and just enjoy the process again. With this new focus, I decided to collect a list of larger books that I have been putting off (for no good reason).

I used to absolutely love reading a nice thick book and, if you ask me, there is a certain kind of magic that accompanies them. I’m really looking forward to spending my time in a nice long book or two, or four in 2020!

The Priory of thee Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

Dragons. Need I say more? I have heard nothing but good things about this book. I bought it as a celebratory gift to myself for being able to quit my terrible job last year. Yeah, and I still haven’t read it. This one might actually be the first on my list of thick books to tackle this year.

The Diviners by Libba Bray

From the description of this book, I get the sense that this is supposed to be a paranormal mystery and I’m really excited to give it a go! I’ve been in the mood to read something in a historical setting too, so perhaps I’ll get to it sooner rather than later?

Dracul by Dacre Stoker & J.D. Barker

This is supposed to be a prequel to Dracula and tell the story of Bram Stoker’s own nightmarish encounter with the supernatural. I first heard about this book at the tail end of October last year and have wanted to add it to my book collection ever since.

A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab

I started this series years ago and I have been contemplating to reading this book off and on about a million times since. There is no real reason why I’ve only read a few pages of it besides well… its size. It’s over 500 pages, which is a hefty time commitment, but I’m sure it’ll be well worth it.

Are there any thick books on your to-read list this year? Have you read any of these?

  1. Ah I way too often put off long books, there’s something…. scary about them somehow hahaha. I hope you’ll love all of these, I only heard incredible things about Priory! Oh and I loved A Gathering of Shadows SO much 🙂

  2. I’m the same as Greg, I want to read Priory, but it’s such a chunkster that I’m nervous to commit.

    I’m not reading any super thick books right now, but I’m reading a series, does that count? I’m reading Kage Baker’s company series, it is time travel, intrigue, romance. None of the books are super thick, but there is like ten of them, and I’m nearly done with #3.

  3. I started Priory of an Orange Tree earlier this year. I loved it but didn’t have the brain power to hold all the plot threads in my head during the school year. I need to read it during the summer.
