Top Ten Tuesday: October 9: Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.

Updates are now at That Artsy Reader Girl.

What constitutes a long book? I think that depends on the reader. A person who doesn’t read much may say anything over 200 pages is long. But to someone who reads 50 books or more a year, they may say it’s anything over 600.

To keep this list reasonable and in the realm of 10 books I am sticking with anything over 500 pages.I’ll do this in order of page numbers, which means I am not grouping trilogies or series together.

1) Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer – 498 pages.
I know I said over 500 pages, but according to my tracking list this is only 2 pages shy.

2) The Night Circus, by Erin Morgenstern – 512 pages

3) The Winter Sea, by Susanna Kearsley – 536 pages

4) Morning Star, by Pierce Brown – 540 nook pages

5) The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak – 560 pages

6) The Book of Life, by Deborah Harkness -561 pages

7) New Moon by Stephenie Meyer – 563pages

8) Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness -577 pages

9) A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness -579 pages

10) New Jedi Order: Star By Star by Troy Denning -605 pages

11) Iron Gold by Pierce Brown, – 610 pages

12) The Host by Stephenie Meyer – 619 pages

13) Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer – 629 pages

14) The Aeronaut’s Windlass, by Jim Butcher – 630 pages

15) Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling – 652 pages

16) Harry Potterand the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling – 734 pages

17) Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer – 754 pages

18) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling – 759 pages

19) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling – 870 pages

20) The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas, Narrated by B.J. Harrison – 52 hours
I didn’t read this but listened to the audiobook. I think the printed book is something like over 900 pages? 1,000 pages? It is the longest audiobook I have ever listened to.
