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

I believe it honestly is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix at 766 pages. At least, as far as I can remember. Oh, wait. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer at 768. Erm...that's a little shameful, I think! My brother certainly thinks so...he's been teasing me about how he's read George R.R. Martin, etc. Quick, someone recommend me a huge and awesome book!

Well, considering my record doesn't break 800 pages, my favourite 600+ titles are limited. Dear Harry Potter, always my standard answer of course!

Oh, I'm a little depressed now!!!

  3. I've only read the first 2 books of the George Martin series, and really did like them, but they are such a commitment because the plot is so involved & they are so many characters.

    1. I bet they are! My brother kept trying to get me to read them, but I'm just not sure they're for me. I've been thinking about watching the TV series however, just to see.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Hopping through. I didn't realize Breaking Dawn was that long. It feels much shorter.

  5. Huge Awesome book? How about Gone with the Wind...over 1000 pages. Or East of Eden, not nearly as long but denser.

    1. Ooh, those two are ones I'll definitely make a note to check out! I know the movies only, as usual. But books are always better! :-D Thanks for sharing!

  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!

    1. I say counting LotR as a series when read that way is a great idea! It is one book after all, technically! :-D

      I agree about Harry Potter, definitely a favourite. It'll never get old!

      Thank you for following, Maeva, I appreciate it!
