Top five Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Gingerreadslainy and hosted by Thoughts on Tomes you can find more information on the goodreads group. This weeks prompt is books that took the longest to read.
On average it takes me about three days to finish a 300-400 page book but sometimes books are boring or slow and they take awhile to read most of the time if I’m having trouble getting into a book I normally end up not finishing it. Sometimes really good books take be forever to read sometimes it’s the writing other times I’m just not in the mood for that story.
Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix
- Read from April 10th to August
This is the longest book I’ve ever read and it took me the longest to read I thought I would never finish it. It’s massive I actually love really long books but this was too long and I found a lot of it boring and unnecessary it was my least favorite book in the series.
An Ember in the Ashes
- Read from July 20th to July 29th
This took me awhile because I liked one point of view better then the other I would be loving the book and then it would switch to Laia’s pov and I would loose interest Laia was okay but I found Elias’s chapters I lot more interesting.
The Assassins Blade
- Read from January 15th to February 1st
This is a collection of novellas and a spaced them out because I wasn’t ready to say goodby to the world and characters also some of the novellas are a little long and took me two days to finish.
- Read from June 20th to June 29th
This felt a lot longer then it actually was it was so hard to get into it was a good story but it was confusing and I was reading it for what felt like forever. For me nine days is a long time to read a 356 page book.
A Tyranny of Petticoats
- Read from August 30th to September 18th
This is fifteen short stories and I wanted to read one or two story’s a day but I couldn’t finish it before I had to give it back to the library I only had one story left. I actually could have read the last story but it’s set in the 60s and I don’t have much interest in that decade so I watched a show instead I do plan on buying this because I loved the stories so I’ll read that story eventually.
