Top 5 Books That Took Longest To Finish

Top 5 Wednesdays are hosted by GingerReadsLainey here. I am usually a fast reader so this was a hard list to put together and it definitely seems to be mostly Classic reads!

1. Anne of Green Gables by L.M Montgomery
Anne of Green Gables (Anne of Green Gables, #1)
This book was one of the first ever classics that I read so I had to continue rereading parts of the old fashioned language that I didn't understand at first. But I ended up really enjoying this and I definitely want to continue the series at some point.


2. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Jane Eyre
I love this book but when I read it recently it still took a really long time to finish because I always find that when I read a classic I struggle to read them quickly so although I enjoyed it I took my time finishing it.

3. Pathfinder by Angie Sage
PathFinder
I read this book last year but I was in a odd reading mood at the time so I kept pausing to read other books so all in all it took me a really long time to finish!

4. The Neverending Story by Michael Ende
The Neverending Story
I read this when I was younger and it took me a lot longer to finish books then so it took me a long time to finish but I really enjoyed it.

5. The Secret Diary Of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su
The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet
I don't remember this book taking me that long to read but when I check Goodreads I took about 6 months to finish it which is probably because like Pathfinder I read it in intervals. However I also loved this book a lot.

You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading.

My biggest problem with finishing books is classics. For some reason they bore me (usually) and I have to drag through them!

Oh the never ending story! I haven't read it, but I think I watched the movie? If I'm correct, it was a really cute story; although if it's actually about death, sadness and generally terrible things - feel free to correct me.

I have books which goodreads have told me took me four years to finish. Half the books on my currently reading shelf have been there forever!

It took me a very long time to read Jane Eyre. But it took me longer to read Pride and Prejudice. Over a year. I wanted to read it but found my attention drifting every page or so.

The book which ahs taken me the LONGEST to read is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I started it when I was 13. I'm now a month away from being 29 and I still having finished it despite picking up again every few months in an attempt to finally finish it!

Yeah I used to have that problem but after I read Anne of Green Gables I started really enjoying them!

I read the book so long ago with Clare and I loved it. The movie was very good to though!

Wow that definitely is a long time, I am sure you will finish it soon! I still have not read Pride and Prejudice, I really should soon. Thanks for visiting!
