I love long books, but at the same time, I really don’t like them. I’m confusing, right?! So to try to be a bit less confusing, here’s a list of pros and cons of long books. Here, I’m categorising ‘long’ as anything over 450 pages.

Pros of Long Books

  • Plenty of time to get into the plot
  • You get to spend longer with your favourite characters
  • You can get lost in a world for much longer
  • Good books to snuggle up with
  • So many twists!

Cons of Long Books

  • They’re so heavy!
  • They take commitment
  • You’ve got to be really invested in the plot
  • A lot more room for plot holes
  • They take up more room on your bookshelf
  • They’re even more expensive

Do you prefer shorter or longer books? Let’s have a chat in the comments.

    1. I’m exactly the same! I hate the fact that I know I’ll be stuck with the book for a while and I’d rather read a bunch of shorter books in that time than the one single long book. Glad I’m not alone!
