Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is ‘the longest books I’ve read’. I thought this was going to be tricky but then I discovered a nifty filter on Goodreads which let me sort books I’ve read by their number of pages. I don’t think I’ve recorded every book I’ve ever read on Goodreads, but I think this list is probably pretty complete. The page counts come from Goodreads too.
1. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by JRR Tolkien (1,137 pages)
2. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (850 pages)
3. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling (766 pages)
4. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer (756 pages)
5. Brisingr by Christopher Paolini (748 pages)
6. City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare (733 pages)
=7. Moby Dick by Herman Melville (720 pages) Felt like 7200 pages!
=7. The Given Day by Dennis Lehane (720 pages)
9. A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz (711 pages)
10. The Glass Lake by Maeve Binchy (704 pages)
