I have this fear of long books. I avoid them like the plague but I have read quite a few long books. To figure out what the longest books are that I’ve read, I went on to goodreads and organised my ‘read’ shelf by number of pages and here we go.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling – 767 pages
I’m not surprised that this is the longest book that I’ve read. The Harry Potter books do get pretty huge later on in the series.
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare – 725 pages
There will probably be a lot of Cassandra Clare on this list. I’m surprised that City of Heavenly Fire is her longest book to be honest, I always assume that it is Lord of Shadows.
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare – 701 pages
Her books always fly so quickly that you don’t even realise how long they are.
The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E Pearson – 679 pages
I didn’t even realise this book was so long because I read this whole series on my kindle. It did seem to last for a long time but that might have been because I think it was my least favourite in the series.
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – 669 pages
This is the one Cassandra Clare book that felt as long as it was. This might be because it was the first book in a new series so love for the characters hadn’t been established yet.
Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – 659 pages
Anyone who has read this series will know that these books fly so quickly.
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Maas – 645 pages
This is one that I felt. This was 645 pages of nothing in my opinion and I was bored the whole way.
What You See Is What You Get by Alan Sugar – 645 pages
I have no idea why I read this book but I did read it like 6 years ago.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling – 636 pages
Surprised this isn’t higher on the list. I love this book though it does drag in some places.
Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – 615 pages
The mixed media aspect of this series makes it so fun that you don’t feel the length.
So those are some of my longest books that I’ve read. Anyone else have that fear of long books? They scare the hell out of me but I’ve read a fair share of them
