Hop on Friday!

Friday, March 23, 2012

It's Friday!  My spring break is almost over so I have to use this time to go read and get ready for the Fallen Book Discussion that I told you about yesterday.  Don't forget to check out the awesome poll that I have on the left of the sidebar over there.  Now, on to the Friday hop which is hosted by Parajunkee.  Check out today's question:

What is the longest book you’ve read? What are your favorite 600+ page reads?
Let's see... well, the fifth Harry Potter book, The Order of the Phoenix, was very long.  But I also read The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray, which was one of the favorites.  Plus, The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova was a bit long, but I read that one so long ago that I do not remember much about it.  I'm sure there are more that I have read but those are all that I can remember at the moment.  Out of those, my favorite would be The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray, because Bray is always so brilliant.  

What is the longest book you have read?  I hope you all have a great weekend.  Happy reading!

  4. New GFC Follower! I haven't read Libba Bray, but I tried to read her first book, but it was a historical romance, and I don't really blend with historical things, unfortunately. :(

    I love your blog background, by the way! It's so darn colorful!

  8. If you consider the fact that the version of The Lord of The Rings I read was the one that’s one book with the 3 parts inside (1202 pages in the brazilian version), that would be the longest book I’ve ever read. But if you consider series to favorite 600+ page reads, hands down, Harry Potter. Not so much for the story, but for the feeling it brings me every time I think about it.
