This week's question feature is from
Short and Sweet

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

My Answer:I don't know what the actual longest is, but I read the 'Sword of Truth' series by Terry Goodkind, there are something like 12 books in the series and each one is approx 1,200 pages so that's quite long. Then there is the 'Inheritance Cycle' by Christopher Paolini, they are each around 8-900 pages. 


TGIF!

This Friday's Question:

Bookish Trends: What are some bookish trends you are noticing in the literature world today? Is there a particular trend you'd like to see more of?
 

My Answer: there are some very prominent trends at the moment especially with YA. Of course Vampires were really in, but now the trend is definitely moving towards Dystopian novels. I have also noticed a massive trend with Love Triangles, nearly every book these days has one. 

 


 Happy Hopping, have a great weekend everyone!!!

I enjoy series but have a problem with reading them cause usually they are forever long so it takes me a long time to go through them.

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!
