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


Harry Potter books (of course!)


Angels & Demons by Dan Brown (700 pages/mass-market paperback)


Dreamcatcher by Stephen King--though not his best.


The Lord of the Rings. It was one complete book with all three in one--1285 pages all together. I was about fourteen or fifteen when I read it, and it took me a long time to read. Haha. Honestly wasn’t a big fan…but that’s because I’m not normally into that genre. Though I did love the movies, and I absolutely loved The Hobbit!


I love long reads. Though my range is normally in the 400-500 range. My mind is pretty much drawing a blank right now on the 600+ reads that I have picked up in recent years because there are so few on the list.
Some long reads (600+) on my TBR pile for 2012:

Under the Dome by Stephen King
Angelology by Danielle Trussoni
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness





Happy Friday and happy reading!

  1. Hopping through. I haven't read Angels and Demons. My husband and parents raved about it. I liked Dan Brown's most popular book (the name somehow has escaped me)/

    1. A lot of people kept saying Angels and Demons was better than The Da Vinci Code, but I disagreed. It was still very good...but not as good. My opinion though, of course. ;) It's actually the prequel that was released later. :) Thank you for dropping by! Sorry I'm a bit late in my response...it has been such a chaotic week! :)

  6. I forgot about Angels and Demons. I should have added that to my own list. I started to read A Discovery of Witches too, but had to set it aside because it reminded me too much of A.S. Byatt's Possession.

  7. Oh, I have to read Dreamcatcher. I watched the movie because of the actors, but it wasn't as good as I had hoped and since I usually read books before I see the film-adaptions I was just.. sort of reluctant to buy the novel.

    New LinkyFollower! :)

    1. You know the books are always better than the movie. :P It still rings true for Dreamcatcher. Haha. It really wasn't his best work. I'm a huge Stephen King fan, and I think that was where he started falling a bit...but it was still pretty good. Very twisty anyway. :)

      Thank you! :)

  10. 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!
