Top 10 Tuesdays: Longest Books I’ve Read

This is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week, there’s a theme and you choose ten books that fit it. Check out upcoming topics here.

Bless goodreads for having the option to sort by page count, because without it, I’m not sure I could have answered this week’s question. I really wasn’t sure after the first three because after those, page counts are much closer together.

In order from longest to shortest:


The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3)


The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien– 1,220 pages





It by Stephen King– 1,093 pages



The Mists of Avalon (Avalon, #1)


The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer-Bradley– 912 pages



Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest


The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson– 820 pages



The Sweet Far Thing (Gemma Doyle, #3)


The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray– 819 pages



A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)


A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin– 801 pages



East of Eden


East of Eden by John Steinbeck– 778 pages

What are some of the longest books you’ve read?

Did any of mine make your list as well?



If you’ve somehow found your way to this blog, hello! I created this blog for (mostly) book related posts. I’m not entirely certain about the potential content that will find its way here, but I have some ideas. I will probably use this space for reviewing books, posting short thoughts on what I’m reading (or planning to read), quotes, rants, etc.
