Book Blogger Hop #12 and Follow Friday #9

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:
Book Blogger Hop
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. Hopping by from the Hop! Great choice this week. My longest book was probably a Stephen King as well.

    My Hop is here.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  6. Breaking Dawn is one of the longest boos I read, too. Have a great weekend!

  7. Les Miserables is a great book, I love the musical too.

    The Stand and the Dome is the two longest books I own. The Passage is also quite long.

  12. Most people would guess I’d write myself in the role of a hero in a fictional adventure of some kind. But that would be only partially correct. As is my norm, I throw a curve ball in my answer that makes perfect sense one you follow my logic. Follow me back to my blog at and follow along the logic with me!

  13. I forgot about Gone with the Wind! That was a long one!

  14. Swan Song was my answer, too. I wasn't sure how it measured up with The Stand - which may have actually been longer. I have yet to finish Gone with the Wind. :)

  15. Jacob definitely needs a great girl to be with - good choice.

    Thanks for visiting FF

  19. 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.
