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

A. Well I think the longest book I've read (or at least the longest one that comes to mind) is probably War and Peace. I know, I know totally original right? lol. It was required reading for school, and being homeschooled my mom was tough and Cliff's Notes weren't allowed lol.


As for my favorite 600+ reads, I'd have to go with:

The Harry Potter books, I mean how could they not be on the list?!?

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

The Inheritance series by Christopher Paolini (although the first book is a bit under 600 pages)

Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

Little, Big by John Crowley (not quite 600 but still a favorite)

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (this is actually a close second to the longest book I've read)

The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton

And I'm going to stop with my list now or else I'll keep going all day, because as you can see I love long books lol. 

Happy Friday lovelies!

Also I just want to mention that since GFC won't be allowing non-Blogger followers after March,  if you're not a Blogger member I would really appreciate it if you'd consider following me through email or RSS. Thanks so much to everyone who follows already and to any new followers!

  1. Harry Potter seems like a must on such list. ;DI promised myself that I will read Gone with the Wind one day... haven't go the time yet. Oops.

  2. Yay for the Count of Monte Cristo!! Seeing that a lot today! It is practically my only fave lit classic. Never really got into them even with my English major!

  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!
