Word Count for Novels:
50,000 - 70,000 Short Novel
80,000 - 100,000 Just Right
200,000 - 300,000 Lenghty
400,000 - 600,000 Epic

I based this word count according to my research and it also depends on Genre. More Words are best for World Building like in Fantasy and Science Fiction Genres. I love to read some Flash Fiction and Fairy Tales when I was young for bedtime stories. I think younger people have limited attention that is why picture books should only have a few pages and a more mature audience should read longer. The older the readers, the word count should be higher to be enough to entertain.
