Top Ten Tuesday | Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

Happy Tuesday!

I’ve finally come out of my food coma. I never thought a 10-pound turkey could take me out so quickly.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. Today’s theme is the longest books we’ve read. Preferably, I don’t mind long books, especially from my favourite authors. But I’m starting to like shorter novels now. But here are my favourite picks:

Queen of Shadows

648 pages

Even though Heir of Fire is my favourite TOG sequel, I cannot get enough of Queen of Shadows. Rowaelin, Aedion, Lysandra, the fate of Arobynn, and the return of magic make my inner book nerd scream.

 

Eldest

704 pages

I feel sad that I never finished the series. But the main character annoyed me to no end. It took me weeks just to finish the book, and I couldn’t stomach the writing. And from the reviews that said the last two sequels never improved, I don’t feel so awful anymore.

 

Lady Midnight

720 pages

After the disappointing ending of the Mortal Instruments, I had little expectations coming into the next (and never-ending) Shadowhunters series. I loved meeting Emma, Julian, and the Blackthorns though. I have to do admit that I enjoyed reading Lady Midnight. I just wish Cassie didn’t rely on dense writing.

 

Breaking Dawn

756 pages

I can’t believe I finished this series. Back then, I had zero taste in books. I just read what was popular. And I’m so glad I’m much more hesitant with books now. I don’t think I could handle rereading the Twilight Saga.

 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

759 pages

Deathly Hallows certainly isn’t the longest book in the series. But I never finished all the books though. This series was always hard for me to get into. And I wish I encouraged myself to read along with my generation.

 

Winter

827 pages

I was completely intimidated when this beast showed up. I wasn’t expecting Winter to be so damn thick. But even 800+ pages isn’t enough for me. I wanted more. But I loved the finale.

 

Voyager

870 pages

Dragonfly in Amber was somewhat of a letdown. I wanted to love it as much I did with Outlander. But the whole structure of the book threw me off. And I hated the time jump. But when Jamie and Clare reunite, I was a bloody mess!

  1. I totally forgot about some of the Lunar Chronicle books being so big! I wonder if I’m becoming used to longer books. I’ve read almost all of these and didn’t have most on my list! Great list.
