This week is ‘Books That Took You the Longest to Finish. Surprisingly there aren’t that many of them my main ones  – 1 & 2 – took the longest and I’ve actually still haven’t finished:

 

5) Shakespeare on Page and Stage by Stanely Wells:

Ok, this didn’t take that long to finish, just a bit over a month. There wasn’t any reason for it really, it wasn’t a bad book or anything, I just wasn’t in much of a reading mood at the time.

4) A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin:

Considering the other books on my list, this also didn’t take that long. I think it took a month or two. Love the series it just took a while to get into and it was one of the longest books I’d read for fun at the time. I soon got used to it, some of the other books only took me 3 days.

3) A Feast for Crows (ASOIAF #4) by George R. R. Martin:

Ok, this didn’t take me 3 days like some of the other books, I think this took a year. Again not because it was a bad book but I got about half way through and had to stop because I had uni books to read and other things grabbed my attention. Got around to it eventually.

2) Dreamsongs: A RRetrospective #1 by George R. R. Martin:

I seem to have a thing with this author. Same reason as A Feast for Crows except I still haven’t finished it. I started in May last year and have every intention of getting to the end, just haven’t yet.

1) The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien:

Like Dreamsongs I started this in May last year but I’m less enthusiastic about finishing it. I don’t hate it but I can’t say I like it either. I do want to finish it at some point since I love the films, but it’s not high on my list.
