Follow My Book Blog Friday (32)


This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!

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

Answer: Hmmm I honestly have no idea. I'd have to say the longest books I've read were the Harry Potter books. The Host by Stephanie Meyer was just over 600 pages and it was awesome! I know people don't like her because of Twilight, but The Host was actually al really good read! Crime and Punishment was up in the 500s and so was City of Glass and both of those are really great books. That's all I can think of! What's so great about Harry Potter, though, is that it brought so many people back into reading and really changed their lives. That series that got up into the 800 page range made a huge difference in reading and if you haven't read it yet, you seriously need to get out of the rock you're living under and pick it up RIGHT NOW!




And you know what? It's friday! And I went to the Hunger Games premiere last night (aka this morning) and I'm just in a great mood (my review of the movie is right here!). So here's a little Joey and Chandler dance to share my happiness right now...

  3. haha thanks for the dance. I just came back from watching the movie at 9:15 in the morning. I agree that the host was so much better than Twilight.

  8. I think I'm the only person in the world who just couldn't get into "The Host". And Crime and Punishment is one I went with Cliff's Notes on ;)

  11. I have The Host but I leant it to a friend before I had the chance to read it and they bent the pages! So I haven't been able to read it yet.

  13. 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.

    I'm a new follower, btw!

  14. Yeah, The Host was really good! The Harry Potter books, well, I think pretty much everyone has read them, and if they haven't, it's because they don't read at all, and need sense to be inserted into their heads! Thanks for stopping by! Old follower :) Happy reading!

  15. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. Taruhan Bola
