Feature and Follow Friday (3)


Welcome to another Follow Friday! For those of you not familiar with it, Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read where you can meet new bloggers and gain more followers! The fun part of it is the random questions! Here we go!

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

Longest book I have read without a doubt is Gone with the Wind! With 1024 pages, it was a killer, especially since I was 10 when I first read it. I was in an Australian Young Writers Club at the time and was reading everything I could find. It was the biggest book on my mums bookshelf so I figured I would give it a go. Following closely is Anna Karenina with 864 pages. Although if you count poetry, the winner is Romanticism: An Anthology with 1552 pages.

My favourites on the other hand are the typical Harry Potter and Twilight (Eclipse, Breaking Dawn).




What is the longest you have ever read?

    1. I read it several years ago but its one of those books you really never forget. Its a bit slow to start but once you get into it, with a bit of concentration its great. Tolstoy is an amazing writer, so I give him credit for that. I give you fair warning though, the book is split in two in a sense, one being the main story, the other half following the life of a farmer who goes on and on about farming,haha.... none of that is a spoiler... its just a heads up of the format of the book.

  4. 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!
