Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. You don’t have to do all ten. Instead you can do three, five, fifteen, whatever you want. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.
This week’s theme is Longest Books I’ve Ever Read but I am going to stretch it to also include the shortest books I’ve ever read because I have a ridiculously short attention span. I have chosen on more than one occasion not to read a book that sounds interesting due to it’s length because I know, unless it is FANTASTIC, I would never finish it.
- A Dance with Dragons (A Song of Ice and Fire #5) by George R.R. Martin – 1016 pages
- A Storm of Swords (A Song of Ice and Fire #3) by George R.R. Martin – 973 Pages
- The Witching Hour (Lives of the Mayfair Witches #1) by Anne Rice – 965 pages
- The Meaning of Night by Michael Cox – 703 pages
- A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas – 699 pages
I think it is funny that 4/5 of these are books I read before I became a mom. I apparently had a lot more time on my hands then. Who knew?
- Dealing with Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles #1) by Patricia C. Wrede – 212 pages
- Ashes To Ashes (The Ministry of Curiosities #5) by C.J. Archer – 150 pages
- A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3.1) by Sarah J. Maas – 229 pages
- The Haunting of Ashburn House by Darcy Coates – 246 pages
- Olmec Obituary (Dr Pimms, Intermillennial Sleuth #1) by L.J.M. Owen – 247 pages
Aaaannnddd all of these I’ve read post kiddo. 250 – 300 or so pages is more my speed now. Much more than that and by the time I get to the end of the book I’ve forgotten what happened at the beginning.
Have any 300ish pages book recommendations? Be sure to let me know in the comments. Have a wonderful day!
