Book Blogger Hop #12 and Follow Friday #9

Posted August 19, 2011 by Lisa Mandina in / 20 Comments

Seems like I’m only able to fit this in about every other week now that school is getting started again. So let’s just get started! Book Blogger Hop first:

The Book Blogger Hope is put on by Crazy For Books. It’s a place for book bloggers and readers to come together over the weekend and chat about books. This week’s question is:

What’s the longest book you’ve ever read? (Other than the bible or any other religious text.)

Well, there are several that I would have to say, not sure which is the longest, either one of Stephen King’s books, or one of the longest Harry Potter books, or maybe Breaking Dawn. Those were all pretty long. Another really long one was Swan Song by Robert McCammon. Also Gone With the Wind and its sequel Scarlett were both really long. As well as maybe North and South. I’m thinking probably the longest is Stephen King’s The Stand, I think I found it has 464,218 words.

Next is Feature and Follow Friday.

This is sponsord by two sites: and This is a blog hop that expands your blog by a joint effort between bloggers. This week’s question is:

If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be, and what role would you play?

Hmm, I feel like I’ve answered this one before somewhere else, and I’m not exactly sure again what to say. Maybe I would write myself into the Twilight series before Breaking Dawn, and be Jacob’s girl that he imprints on before Renesmee comes along. While I love Edward, I kind of feel he is supposed to be with Bella. But I think I would love a guy like Jacob. So that’s my quick answer to the question.

What are your answers to those questions? I looked up the top 10 longest novels, and one of them, Les Miserables is sitting in my pile of books to be read, but have you read any of them?

  1. Happy Friday!
    I seemed to be one of the few people who never read Stephan King. Now I feel ashamed 😉
    To be Jacobs girl is good pick as well. Haven't read this one before.

    Ironically, I've only read Stephen King's short stories, never one of the tomes he's written. 🙂 Thank you for sharing and have a nice weekend of reading!

  3. GWTW was one of my longest and one of my favorite books. I'm trying to get my daughter to read it now, but with school starting back up, it's the wrong time for a 1000 page book for fun.
