Follow Friday #6

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison can Read

Hi everyone! It's Friday again already! This weeks question is:

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

Well, according to my Goodreads stats, the longest book I've read is The Host by Stephenie Meyer which was 619 pages. Also on the list are Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (607), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (607), and Monsters of Men (603). The longest book I've read so far this year is Clockwork Prince which was 598 pages long.

My favourite 600+ read would have to be Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! I loved all the HP books and just typing about them now makes me want to go back and re-read them all!

I'm not very good with long books as often they don't have enough happening in them to warrant being so long! I tried very hard to read Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell which was 519 pages but I found it incredibly boring!

So, if you like what you see and decide to follow my blog, there are loads of ways you can do so! In addition to the usual GFC, you can also follow me by email, linky, RSS, Networked Blogs, Twitter and Facebook. All of these are on the left sidebar! Have a great weekend, everyone!

  4. Monster of Men is that long?!?!?! I read in ebook and read QUICKLY so I had no idea. That's crazy! Goodreads is weird with page counts sometimes. I don't always trust it.

    1. Yep- it was definitely that long but I don't think the font was very small.

  6. 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!
