Book Blogger Hop & Follow Friday (5)

Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read! So visit Crazy-for-Books to grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list there!

This week's question:

"What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?"

I'm pretty sure this would be Stone of Tears by Terry Goodkind. It's the second book in the Sword of Truth series, and has 979 pages. It's an epic book for an epic series.

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Allison Can Read. Visit either of their blogs for complete rules of the following fun!

This week's question:

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

This is hard! While there are a few books where I think it would be fun to be a character (Black Dagger Brotherhood shellan, anyone? Or Jane Eyre?), I think I would really like to be in an epic fantasy book. The female heroines in these books, while they usually do have some kind of power, are also incredibly strong and courageous. They might endure hardships, but in the end everything works out and they often save many people other than themselves. It would be amazing to have that kind of influence.

What are your answers? Please leave a comment or a link to your blog!


  1. I thought of the Black Dagger Brotherhood for my answer too- I love those books!

  2. I kind of agree with the epic fantasy. It would be loads of fun and so much adventure!
    I picked The River of Time series by Lisa Bergren cause I'd love to travel back in time like those girls do.

  3. HEY! I would be a female assassin that used a bow. I think it would be so crazy and fun. (not the killing people part, be like katniss. lol.)

    Followin you!! Hope you'll stop by my blog and tell me what your fav 2011 book is! :)

  4. Ooh nice ones! My longest book was over 1000 pages and I read it for fun! Scary, huh?

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  5. 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!

  7. Hi im a new follower

  8. An epic fantasy would definitely be fun - whether it was gaining a power or just being in a cool world.

  9. Oh my goodness our first names are so similar that I just had to say hello! New follower also. :)

    An epic fantasy would be amazing! I haven't read it yet, but I hear the Tairen Souls books are incredible and exactly like what you are talking about. Here's my FF:


  10. Yeah but all those hardships - yuck. Like the rest of it though! =)

    Thanks for visiting FF

    Following back

  11. Nice answer! I did not think of Jane Eyre and I remember when I read it I use to imagine I was her. LOL

  12. I had never heard of Stone of Tears, so naturally, I had to follow your link! It seems to be a great epic fantasy, which is awesome!

  13. Wow, there are a lot of long books out there! I wish I had more time to read. Happy Hopping!
