FF#7- thick books!

Feature & Follow is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read weekly. You can join me and post the links to your own #FF posts in the comments below.

The question this week is...

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

I have a feeling I've read longer books, but these two I loved:
Quo Vadis? by Henryk Sienkiewicz
Despite it being over 700 pages in Polish, I managed to read it in just one day, I was so engrossed. I loved it and I cried a lot - and I tend to absolutely worship the books that make me cry. It's a great book by a Polish writer - it's translated to English of course, and I think there is a US movie based on it.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling
One of my favorite books from Harry Potter series and definitely the last one I loved so much. The next ones seemed to lose its magic to me. Goblet of Fire was magical.

  7. Ha! That's so awesome!!! I love reading huge volumes in one day - you never forget the experience!!!

    Thx for stopping by my FF!! I'd say READ The Name of the Wind, DEFINITELY!! And then maybe wait on Wise Man's Fear 'til the third is out. Or read it together with the first, like I did, 'cause it hasn't gotten great reviews by itself, but I'm jaded 'cause it was all one story for me!

  8. I'm a new GFC & Linky Follower!!! HI!!!

  9. Hopping through. Have you read HP in English and Polish? I wonder if the translation makes anything sound different.

  13. 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!
