Follow Friday/Blog Hops

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet new blogger friends. This weeks question is:

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

Wow! I haven't read a lot of books that are that long. I can think of the Harry Potter series (the later books) and I LOVE that series. The books tend to not feel long.

TGIF at GReads! is a weekly blog hop hosted by Ginger from GReads

This weeks question is

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?

I have noticed some trends. Insta-love is one of them. I don't mind insta-lust and even the whole insta-love thing can work if done well, but usually it's just very unrealistic.

Genres are trends. There are a whole bunch dystopian novels coming out and that seems to be a trend that isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

The trend I hope continues is the stronger female characters that have been starting to happen. We could always use more strong female examples in all forms of entertainment.

Happy Weekend!


  1. Hopping through. I agree - the HP books are very long but they feel very short.

  5. 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!

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
