Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about BIG BOOKS. ‘Cause you know, I like big books and I cannot lie… except I am lying a little bit because even though I love big books they also intimidate me and I get frustrated when I spend too long on one book so I only read them sporadically… But I did read some big books in my life so far! Here are the biggest ones, according to Goodreads:

harry-potter-and-the-order-of-the-phoenix Outlander by Diana Gabaldon Winter by Marissa Meyer

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K Rowling: 870 pages (also my favorite Harry Potter book. Coincidence?)

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon: 850 pages

Winter by Marissa Meyer: 827 pages (What? It felt like I read this in a day!)

harry-potter-and-the-deathly-hallows Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer Brisingr by Christopher Paolini

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling: 759 pages

Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer: 756 pages

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling: 734 pages

  1. I don’t like big books… and I say this a little too often. 😉

    I’m all about the 300-some page novels. To me, that’s the best length or otherwise I kind of begin to feel like I’ll *never* finish the book. But also, I think the fact that I’m a turtle reader makes me a bad lengthy book reader. 😀

    Spying lots of Outlander, HP, and SJM on today’s lists. But then these authors/books are a perfect fit for today.

  2. Gabaldon’s books are huge. And I see Clare and Paolini’s books popping up quite a bit. In both cases I didn’t realize they had such long books!

  3. I like reading long books, they feel so satisfying! The longest book on my list was The Fiery Cross from the Outlander series.

  4. I love big books! The longest I’ve read (which was this year) was Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon with 1,070 pages. But I wasn’t really fond of the story so that was too bad.

  5. Oh yes I feel you Lindsey. Some big books can be so great and yet lately I’ve not been picking them up. 🙁 Because intimidation.

  6. Sometimes long books are great because you don’t want the story to end, but they do take me longer to read so it can get frustrating. LOL I think many of the HP books would be on my list, as would Winter.


  7. I like big books, but only when they’re books like Harry Potter and The Lunar Chronicles. Those books are huge but were so good and so fast-paced that I breezed right through them.
