Follow Friday #7

This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, 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!

If you can't follow via GFC, then please follow via NetworkedBlogs or e-mail! :)

Please state in the post if you're a new follower or old follower. If you don't tell me that you are following, then I don't know that you are. Therefore, I'll not follow you back. I would like to follow each and every one of you back, so it is important that you clearly state that you are following me and not just stopping by. When someone says, "just saying hi!" or "just hopping through!" then I have no idea if you are following or not. That means that I may or may not return the visit, depending on how much time I have. The people who state they are following me will definitely get a visit and follow back. Thank you. 

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

A: I don't really like books that are that long because I always feel that the plot is being dragged out simply for the length. I actually did read War and Peace, and it was okay. Nothing to write home about. I got bored long before it was over.

My favorite long book, though, is actually one of my favorite books of all time... Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon, which had over 700 pages. I didn't get bored during it at all. That book rips out your soul and then gives it back to you.

What's the longest book you've ever read?


  1. Yeah, that's definitely an issue with me ... I'm always scared that I'm going to get bored! I really do have to try harder, though.

    Happy TGIF! :)

  2. I've never heard of Acheron. 600+ pages can be tough it's almost like you are combining two books into one

  3. I worry I will get bored with long books as well, but I do read a few books over 600 pages. Check out my FF here
    New follower. Happy reading :)

  4. The best ones are the ones you fly through without noticing how long they are! Have a great Friday :)

    Here's my FF!

  5. See that's exactly what a great long book will do to you. I love Acheron. I like reading fantasy sometimes because that's what they do. Sometimes I still want more even after an 1,000 page epic fantasy.

  6. War and Peace has been on my TBR for quite some time. I;m always intimidated by huge books, I probably won't finish them unless I'm totally in love with the plot. I think the longest book I've ever read was the uncut version of The Stand by Stephen King, that one was a huge 1141 page book.

  7. Yesss, Acheron. Love that book and the character. New follower.

  8. New follower! I've seen this book a couple of blogs already. Went to look it up on Goodreads and realized it was the 15th in a series and was like YIKES.

    Hope you'll check out my follow friday

  9. Hopping through. Old follower. I would like to read Kenyon's books some time. I've heard great things.

  10. thanks for stopping by! :)
    New GFC follower, I look forward to reading more! I've had War and Peace on my TBR but I have not picked it up yet.. one of these days.

  11. Thanks for hopping by!

    That's impressive that you read 'War and Peace'! I wish I had the perseverance to do that! x

  12. Hi Amber, thank you for contacting me at Book Blogs. I am now following you by GFC. My favorite long book (that I can think of) is Stephen King's The Dark Tower at 842 pages.
    Please check out my blog at Books, Bones & Buffy

  13. I don't choose not to read long books, I just don't seem to be drawn to them. New Follower thru GFC

  14. 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!
