Ten of the Longest Books I’ve Ever Read | TTT 9/10/18

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by  That Artsy Girl. This week’s topic is all about the longest books you’ve read. This seems like a really intriguing topic to me as, while a few titles come to mind, I’m usually deterred by longer novels as I’m scared that they will drag on longer than necessary.

Image credit goes to Goodreads.

  1. The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee (513 pages). Like many fellow fans, I saved every page of the book.
  2. What If It’s Us by Adam Silvera & Becky Albertalli (448 pages). My most recent read from this list, despite worrying it would drag on, I actually found the book to be rather action packed.
  3. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (481 pages). A little slow but still a sweet book…? I can’t help but feel that the book’s hype skews my opinion slightly.

  4. Whisper to Me by Nick Lake (530 pages). I’ll take any opportunity I get to praise this book (it really is that good 😉). Trust me when I say the 530 pages fly by.
  5. Blink and You Die (Ruby Redfort #6) by Lauren Child (560pages). Both the longest book on my list and the longest book in the Ruby Redfort series, I was enthralled in Blink and You Die until the last page.
  1. Mummun by Jesse Andrews (407 pages). The length took its toll on this novel’s pace and it ended up a little slow & boring.
  2. Head Over Heels (Geek Girl #5) by Holly Smale (416 pages). While it’s definitely not my favourite novel in the Geek Girl series (certainly still a cute book though), it does hold the title of the longest (not actually sure if this is a good thing…😂).
  3. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson (464 pages). Definitely slow-paced which I feel somewhat suits its holiday read appeal.
  4. Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow (416 pages). An emotional rollercoaster of a book, the last 150pages were by far my most enjoyable.
  5. The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani (544 pages). I never actually realised how long this book is (I guessed it was around 400 pages) which probably says something about how thoroughly enthralled I was in it.

What are the longest books that you’ve read (do they beat my 560 pages?)? Do you have any of these books on your TBR? Leave a link to your TTT and I’ll make sure to stop by.

    I think the longest book I’ve read is probably Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. I think it’s around the 800 page mark?? I’m not really one for extremely long books.

    I have read a few of these but forgot to put them on my list. I wonder if it’s because I read some in e-book format. I never tend to remember the number of pages if I don’t have a huge book in my hand! Great list. 🙂
