1. Heir Of Fire by Sarah J Maas
Amongst all the five books I’ve listed, Heir Of Fire took me the longest to finish. It literally took me more than half a year to finally complete it. I know that most people did enjoy this book but to be honest, this is my least favourite book in the whole series. Though we were introduced to many new characters and the ending made up for it, it was a little draggy and there was too much dialogue. Overall, the whole story was dry but I’m proud of myself for getting through it!
2. The Blood Of Olympus by Rick Riordan
This is the fifth and final instalment in the Heroes of Olympus series and this book took me a long time to finish because firstly, it’s a rather large book. Secondly, I loved this series so much and I did not want it to end 😦
3. A Book Of Sprits And Thieves by Morgan Rhodes
This is the first book in the spin-off series to the Falling Kingdoms series and as much as I loved Falling Kingdoms, I couldn’t get into this book and thus it took me awhile to get through it. If you’re interested in hearing more about my thoughts on it, you can check out my review HERE !
4. The Love That Split The World by Emily Henry
This is a YA contemporary novel and it was just painful for me to even get through this book. The plot and characters were just alright, I hated the insta-love in this novel and I scanned through the last forty pages of the book.
5. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Don’t get me wrong, I really loved The Raven Boys! However, it did take me awhile to finish it because the middle part of the novel was really slow and nothing much was happening. I almost DNF’ed the novel but the ending picked up 🙂
That is all for today’s Top 5 Wednesday post and I hope you all enjoyed it! Do let me know in the comments what books you took the longest to finish as I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you for reading and I’ll see you in my next post, bye! ❤
