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

Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer was the longest book I've ever read. It's a whopping 768 pages (but I'm sure you know that) and I loved it, of course. It's my favorite twilight book, and it's probably my favorite 600+ paged read as well. Well, that and The Host by S.M. But! That may or may not change because I'm thinking about reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, which is 850 pages! Woah, baby! I've been hearing some good things about this book so I really want to. The only thing is... it's a bit intimidating. Not because it has so many pages, but because it looks like a Webster dictionary lol.  Have you read it? Yes, no, maybe so?

Yup, that's about it! I haven't read many 600+ paged books. I can't even say any of the Harry Potter books, because I only finished reading up to the Prisoner of Azkaban, which was just shy of 500 pages. Don't shoot, I do plan on finishing the series... it just hasn't happened yet.

And what's the longest book you've ever read?!

  1. I've read Breaking Dawn, The Host and the Outlander series.
    The Outlander books are daunting because they're so thick but really good storylines I hope you enjoy, new follower, here's mine

  3. I didn't even think of Breaking Dawn, but now that you mention it, that book was very long. Most of the Harry Potter books were really long as well. But all of them were fantastic and its so hard to pick just one out of all seven. Hope you have a great weekend! Happy reading!

  5. Breaking Dawn was also my pick. I do like 600+ paged books if they hold my interest the majority of the time. I don't think I'd read those ginormous (not sure if that's a word) 1000 page books a few people have put for their answer though.

  7. 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!
