Hey everyone! As a book dragon, I read many books of various sizes and lengths.
Today I am sharing some of the longest books I have ever read with you all.
Short books are not very intimidating and easy to read but longer books- although they require time, they let you connect with the characters in a deep way and have a longer span during which you can connect and love the characters.
So, we often ignore long books but sometimes we can’t keep away and here I’m sharing with you all some extremely long books I’ve read in all the years I’ve been a book dragon.
Kingdom of Ash
– By Sarah J Maas
- Throne of Glass #7
- Page Count: 984
Ah, this book. I absolutely hated it and Sarah J Maas and how imperialistic and colonialist a conversation was with Aelin saying she wanted to take over other kingdoms and I just – I can’t.
The Priory of the Orange Tree
-By Samantha Shannon
- Page Count: 896
This book surprised me and had me at an edge through all of it. It was daunting to start the 800-something pages long monster of a book, especially with how it’s physical edition looks but I am glad I went through the journey because it was amazing and heart-stopping.

-By Marissa Meyers
- The Lunar Chronicles #4
- Page Count: 827
Winter is the end to The Lunar Chronicles. It is the retelling of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ and I kid you not when I say that Marrisa Meyers has done an amazing job with this fairytale retelling. I loved it. You can check out my review here.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
-By J.K. Rowling
- Harry Potter #7
- Page Count: 759
Once again, this is a Harry Potter book and needs no explanations. I love it and it is one of the best books out there. Although, this one is pretty sad as it is the last one and has the Battle of Hogwarts where many people die *frowns*
City of Heavenly Fire
– By Cassandra Clare
- The Mortal Instruments #6
- Page Count: 725
This book was something and well, I’m glad to see this series come to an end. I am so so done with all the incest and repitive plot points.
Empire of Storms
– By Sarah J Maas
- Throne of Glass #5
- Page Count: 704
Another SJM book and well, take from that what you will.
The Dragon Republic
– By R F Kuang
- The Poppy War #2
- Page Count: 658
This series is one of my favroutie and this book is probably my leats favourite of the three but still one of the best books I have ever read and I highly recommend it!
The Burning God
– By R F Kuang
- The Poppy War #3
- Page count: 640
oh my god, this book broke my heart. I am not and will never be over that ending.
If you haven’t yet, you need to get on with it and read this series!
The House of Hades
-By Rick Riordan
- Heroes of Olympus #4
- Page count: 597
A Rick Riordan book, finally! I love everything about this book – from the characters to the plot and the romances. It is a must read.
-By Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
- Illuminae Files #1
- Page count: 602
Oh, gods, this book was so amazing and I loved it! I also recently reviewed it. You can see it’s a review here.
