Longest books I’ve read

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

9781408872918

  • Throne of Glass #7
  • Page Count: 984

Ah! I love this book. It’s long but one of my favourite and if you haven’t read this series, you all should cause it is amazing and very interesting! The plot twists will make you leap out of your seat. You can check out my review here.

Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix

-By J.K. Rowling

  • Harry Potter #5
  • Page Count: 870

Harry Potter – do I even need to say anything? This book is great and I loved it.

Winter

-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 great but I read it quite some time ago so I can’t really remember much except that it was worth all the time it took to read it.

Empire of Storms

– By Sarah J Maas

  • Throne of Glass #5
  • Page Count: 704

Another SJM book and well, I have to say that this is one amazing book.

A Court of Wings and Ruins

– By Sarah J Maas

  • A Court of Thorns and Roses #3
  • Page Count: 699

AH! The third part of a fantastic series written by SJM, once again. I loved this book even though there was a lot of war, death and destruction in it.

InkSpell

– By Cornelia Funke

  • Inkworld #2
  • Page count: 635

This book is one I did not like much. It was hard to get through and by the end of it, I just wanted to leave it. It is safe to say that I never completed the series.

The House of Hades

-By Rick Riordan

51fgcR4K0ML._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

  • 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.

 

Illuminae

-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.

 


That’s all for today. Those are the longest books I’ve ever read. What about you? What are the longest books you’ve ever read? Tell me in the comments below. I’d be waiting to hear from you!

  1. I’ve read most of the books in this post and I must admit I love long books. I think the longest I’ve ever read was the collection of Sherlock Holmes Volume I which has 1000+ pages. I enjoyed reading it and didn’t really care about the page number. Page number doesn’t really matter as long as you’re enjoying what you’re reading.

  2. I have read a few of these! I often forget that Winter and City of Heavenly Fire are huge books because I flew through them! I absolutely loved both series so I was devouring the finales. I read Order of the Phoenix for the first time a month or so ago and I felt it’s length even though it was an audiobook. Mostly because I didn’t like it ;.; Ah, I loved the Inkheart trilogy as a child even though they were huge! And I read Illuminae last month and head over heels loved it. So so good.

    1. Haha, that’s so true!
      I loved Illuminae too. Right now, I’m reading Gemina and well, it doesn’t feel long either though I know it is.
      Ah, I’m sad that you didn’t enjoy the Order of the Phoenix. Hopefully, you’ll like The Half-Blood Prince more! xx

  3. I always thought that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows would have been my longest book. I couldn’t believe that I was actually going to read something this long. Then I read Winter by Marissa Meyer as well and I was like “pfft, this is nothing!” I can’t recall if I read anything longer since then..

  4. I’ve read HoH and OoTP from your list. I don’t remember reading any other big book right now. But i love reading big books because they give us more time to be with them in their world❤

  5. I was incredibly intimidated by Kingdom of Ash but I didn’t need to be because it was definitely the Throne of Glass book I’d been waiting for. It didn’t give me any of my usual ToG issues and everything weaved together so nicely! I don’t know if it is one of my favourites but it is certainly in contention to be so

  6. Oh your blog is so cute! How did you get it to look like stationary with a mail envelope and tape in the corners and everything?
    I’ve never read the Throne of Glass series, but I have the first book and I’m hoping to start it this summer sometime. I hope I like it!
    And OMG I just finished Illuminae and it was crazy amazing! I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that deserved 5 stars more than that one! I listened to the audiobook along with it as I read too and it was phenomenal! 😀

    1. Thank you so much! ❤
      That's my blog theme – scratchpad.
      Oh, you should! I love Throne of Glass.
      Yes yes yes! I loved Illuminae too though I'm definitely liking Gemina more (now that I actaully understand what's going on)

  7. I love reading long books but It’s been a while that I have picked one. I think the last long book that I read was Kingdom of Ash! That was 5 months ago..omg!

    Oh! Bdw the new theme is absolutely gorgeous!! 💖💖

  8. I’ve read a few of these, but I think my longest reads are in the Obernewtyn series by Isobelle Carmody. The Red Queen (book 7) rocks in at 1108 pages, and The Stone Key (book 5) is 996. I didn’t realise City of Heavenly Fire was so big!! It looks so small on my shelf compared to some of the others!!

    1. Ohh, 1108 pages is so long!
      Haha, CoHF does really not look/feel that long anymore but when I read it, I remember thinking that it was so huge and that I’d take forveer to read it!

  9. I am so afraid of thicc books for some reason, haha! I tend to get so intimidated by 500+ pages and de-prioritize them on my shelf, which stinks because it’s great to be in the world for a long time! ESPECIALLY if it’s a standalone!

    My longest is the Illuminae Files books. PRIORY will top those books though when/if I ever read it.

    1. Haha, I get what you mean.
      Touching them feels like this commintment and when I haven’t heard much about them, I usually tend to avoid them.
      Ohh, really? Honestly, I’m reading Gemina right now and it doens’t feel long at all.
      And I need to read Priory too! I’ve heard a lot about it.

  10. I love those long HP books, for sure! I didn’t realize that the coming books in the “Cinder” series were that long! I think the longest books I have read are the Game of Thrones novels. One was 1100 pages. And a few Stephen King novels come that close!
