Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

I’m not too keen on super long books, but it was interesting to delve into my stats to see what the longest books I’ve ever read are. There were some surprises and a lot more variation in genre than I expected. The page counts are taken from the edition I have shelved as read on Goodreads so may not be 100% accurate.

In reverse order, here are the longest books I’ve read…

693 pages
Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas

The final instalment is looking like it will jump to the top of the list but for now, Empire of Storms takes 10th place. They just keep getting longer!

694 pages
Duma Key by Stephen King

You’d expect a Stephen King novel on this list, right? I actually haven’t read that many, I thought about reading It but it’s soooo long.

695 pages
Nemesis by Jo Nesbo

Looking back at my (very old) review, I felt this book didn’t need to be as long as it was. I don’t think I’ve read another Nesbo since…

704 pages
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

I cannot remember what happens in this book.

724 pages
Incubus Dreams by Laurell K. Hamilton

I can’t even believe I read over 700 pages of vampire porn… The earlier books were so much better (and shorter).

739 pages
Sepulchre by Kate Mosse

I remember reading this for book club and shortly after we introduced a rule that chosen books had to be under 500 pages.

756 pages
Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer

Poor Twilight gets a lot of bad press but I enjoyed the series for entertainment value at the time.

768 pages
The Fireman by Joe Hill

My favourite book from this list, it really didn’t feel like it was this long.

819 pages
A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

I’ve only read of GRR Martin book, I started on the second but I just preferred the TV show. Sorry books!

885 pages
This Charming Man by Marian Keyes

And a real surprise winner, it’s not even fantasy!
