Top Ten Tuesday: Longest Books I've Ever Read



Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is longest books I've ever read.  I went through my Goodreads list and found 10 books (actually 11, but I wanted to stick to the Top Ten!) that were over 1,000 pages.  And many of them came from just two series!



What's the longest book you've ever read?

  2. The Outlander series made my list as well as did Gone with the Wind. I have never read War & Peace, but this is the book I immediately thought of when I read the TTT topic!

  3. After seeing how long all the Outlander books are, I am glad I couldn't get into the first book. That's a big commitment.

    1. They really are. I mean, they're good, but I just reread the first one and it took me a month!

  4. Am I the only one who really just avoids long books like this?

  5. I thought Gone with the Wind was a good read. I'd forgotten how long it is, though.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  7. Wow, it’s awesome that all of your longest are over 1000 pages. I have a hard time committing to massive books. I tend to avoid them.

  9. Wow, those are some long books! I really need to start the Outlander series at some point. I knew all of the books were long, but I must say that I didn't realize they were all that long! The only one I've read from this list is War and Peace, and I really enjoyed it.

  18. Ahh, I've read all those GRRM's (wish we could get more!!!) and I'm going to slowly make my way through the Outlander's as well but I can't prioritise them because I have too many review copies at the moment plus series finales that I want to reread for! :)

    Gosh, we read some long ones!

    1. I know, sometimes it is really hard to fit in those long books because they take so much time!
