I'm the Feature on Follow Friday!

 


Welcome to everyone who has hopped over from Parajunkee or Alison Can Read! I am so excited to be one of the feature blogs for this week! I love following other people and I try hard to comment and visit blogs! If you want to follow me via Twitter, Goodreads, or Facebook- the links are on the right- just let me know and I will follow you back!


PS- Make sure you come back starting Monday- it is my BLOGOVERSARY WEEK and I will be having Giveaways EVERY DAY!!! WOOT!



 Q: What is the longest book you've read? What are your favorite 600+ page reads? 
 





The longest book I have read?  The Bible- that counts right?  As for a fiction book- my guess would be The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray (892 pages) or maybe Order of the Pheonix (870 pages).

My favorite 600+ reads?  The Harry Potter books, the Twilight series (at the time- I am kind of over it now ha ha) ... except Breaking Dawn (not a fan), and the Eragon series.



That was harder than I thought- there aren't many 600+ page books that I have read (who knew Daughter of Smoke and Bone had more than 600 pages...)



So what did you pick?

  3. Congratulations on being the feature! I've only read Harry Potter, but I'm still trying to give Twilight a try, since I've only read the first book and I'm really hesitant to start the next books.

  6. I know, not many 600+ books that I have read. I would probably say Harry Potter too but I still need to read that series.

  11. Wow, I had no idea Libba Bray's book was that long. I'm not a fan of books that go much over 400 pages, so I haven't read many long ones either :)

    I have a feeling there will be a LOT of JK Rowling, Stephanie Meyer, and Stephen King this week lol

    I've been meaning to read the Eragon series. My husband has the whole set, but I can't break away from my review queue long enough to get into a long series :-/

  20. New follower here, via GFC, I am apparently not to in tune to how long my books are I keep seeing stuff I've read and going OH wow that was over 600.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Congrats on being featured!! New follower on GFC.

    I've only read a few books with 600 more pages..my favorite was Incubus Dreams by Laurel K. Hamilton. I still can't believe Breaking Dawn was over 700 pages. LOL It took me two days to finish it when I bought it a few years ago.

  29. Yes the HP books got very long towards the end didn't they? Good reads though. Congrats on being a feature. I'm a new follower. Here's mine: My FF

  30. I picked Stephen King's 11/22/63, but I forgot all about Harry Potter and Eragon. I guess I was so engrossed I didn't realize how long they were. ;) Followed you on Twitter.

  31. You've read the Bible from cover to cover? Respect. I too found it hard to come up with long books to put on my list - but I refused to include Breaking Dawn as it's the one book I've ever thrown across the room in anger!

  32. Congrats on being the feature of the week! New follower :) I love these comments. I'm glad to see there are others who felt the same way about Breaking Dawn as I did. I wished I would have stopped after Book 2 of the series. Anyways Here's My Friday Follow!

  33. I'm also not a big fan of big books. 300+ is ideal for me.Short and sweet.

    I didn't even think of including the Bible - it definitely counts and is definitely the longest book I've ever read. Check out My F&F

  35. Congrats on being featured and happy blogoversary!

    For sure the Bible counts! Last I heard it's the most printed book in the world. The HP books and Breaking Dawn are for sure long.

    I'm following. Happy Friday!

  36. Wow, I forgot how long The Sweet Far Thing was... but I read that long before I was blogging and before I'd heard of Goodreads. And the Bible totally counts! Glad to be a new follower. :)

  37. I’m sorry to say that I’m not a long book fan. The last of the Harry Potter books are probably the longest books I’ve read (that I can remember).

    Hey, congrats on being this week’s feature!

  39. Oh, right! The Bible!! Ha! Good answer. That should totally count. I forgot about Twilight... the movies are makin' it harder to be a fan, I guess. I didn't know Daughter of Smoke & Bone was that long!!!

    The Bible! How could I have forgotten! Heh.

    I'm also a fan of most of the other books your mentioned. Including Breaking Dawn, which I loved. I know, I know. I'm one of the few.

  46. I've read the Harry Potter books and really liked them, but they didn't make my top picks. I read Eragon and was kind of nonplussed by it. Books by Brin, Gaiman, Niven, and Heinlein (among others) make my list though.

  55. Congrats on your feature! It was kind of difficult to pick the books based on page number. I'm glad that the list of the book I've read includes the page numbers and all I had to do was looks back.

  56. Congratulations on your blogoversary and on the feature!

    I was already following you, and my favorite 600+ pages story is also Harry Potter! :)

    I read the Twilight Saga to see if I could find all the buzz about it. While I enjoyed reading the first one, the rest of the series didn't take my breath away--and what the heck was Breaking Dawn? lol
