This week's featured bloggers:


This week's questions:

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

This is a good question.  Most of the books that I read are only about 400+ pages or less.
The longest and my favorite can be answered in the same books. Twilight at 498 pages,
New Moon at 563 pages, Eclipse at 629 pages and Breaking Dawn at 754 pages.  These are
my all time favorite books and I have read them more times then I can count.  Twilight was the
beginning of my book addiction, before that I never really read that much.  I am so glad I found 
these books because they opened up a world of other books and authors that I was missing out on. 

Oh and the books are way better then the movies!!! Although in the movies I can look at Robert Pattinson, so they have their appeal. LOL  Team Edward!! ;)

I've shared mine, now it is your turn. Make sure to leave your link and if your not a blogger, please leave a comment anyway, I would love to know your answers.  

Thanks and Welcome to Belle's Book Bag!!

    1. Hi Alison,
      Thanks for stopping by. No, I didn't see the trailer, I will have to look it up!! I have problems seeing him in other movies because I can only see him as Edward now. LOL Thanks again-I have really enjoyed participating in the Hop. :)

  2. You're like me! I've always liked reading but it wasn't until I read the Twilight series that my addiction started. And I also prefer the books, of course.

    New follower! I love reading romantica from time to time, too :)

    1. Hi Sophie,
      Thanks for following. Nice to meet you. I have only had my blog for a month so I am just getting it started. How long have you had yours up and running?? I am so glad you said that about Twilight and that I am not the only one that started with those books. I really wish she would finish writing and publish Midnight Sun!! I am totally addicted to reading and I have loved books that I never even thought I would be interested in. LOL :)
      Thanks again

    1. Hi,
      Nice to see you again and thanks for following me!! I am going to check out your choice. I am already following you :) I liked the movies it is just that the books are so much better. I think if I saw the movies first, I am not sure I would have wanted to read the books--I am so glad it was the other way around!!
      Thanks again.

  4. Yup, the Twilight Saga is pretty good and very long books indeed. Thanks for stopping by. New follower. And yes I would recommend the Outlander novel. One of the best books ever written.

    1. Hi Jamie,
      Thank you so much for following me!! It's nice to meet you. I had the hardest time trying to figure out if I had even read a book 600+ pages. LOL It was a good thing I remembered Twilight or I would have been embarrassed not having read a book that long!! LOl :) I am following you also. I love your site!! Happy Friday!!

    2. Ah, I'd read it too, but Twilight is already a phenomena. There's so many other great books to recommend for me, so I left it out.

    3. Hi Jez,
      Thanks for stopping by. Nice to meet you. You are absolutely right that there are so many other books out there that are better then Twilight. But for me Twilight started off my addiction to reading and had me looking for all those other authors. Plus the fact that, for the life of me, I couldn't think of a book that I read that was over 400+ pages let alone 600+ pages. LOL. :) I am going to check out your site. Thanks

      I have not read that many 600+ page books, I am pretty sure Twilight and The Host are the only ones that I have read. Thanks again!

  10. Hey Mariann!!;)
    Thanks for visiting my FF this week!! So happy to see your visiting and participating in fun memes. You already know I'm an old follower.:) I follow you on twitter, but I didn't even realize it. I'll have to say hi!!;)

    I thought of The Twilight Saga but I had already chose ShadowFever...okay so...I don't want to ruin anything for you with the HEA aspect but The Fever series by KMM is beyond AMAZING!!!!!! You MUST READ IT!!! That's an order!!! LOL

    When you read it you'll regret waiting soooo long, I promise!!!All five books are fantastic. I would probably say that book #3 or 4 I can't remember the number but it's called DreamFever and the final book #5 is ShadowFever is my favorite books in the series!!!!! I'm going to stalk your GR updates when you read them.:)))).

    1. Hi!!!
      Definitely say hi to me on twitter!! It has been fun so far visiting the other blogs. Thanks so much for recommending (ordering) me to read KMM-I am going to have to fit her in now that you said that!! LOL I have a feeling I am missing something by not reading about Barrons. I will let you know what I think when I get a chance to read them. I am way behind in my reading , trying to get my blog together. That is so funny to me since that is the whole reason I started the blog!! I guess it is all just about balance. Oh, I won't even get into that I have not read The Hunger Games either!! :) Nice talking to you and thanks for stopping by to check out my FF.

  11. I've heard Twilight a lot. I didn't particularly like it, but I've only read the first book so far so we'll have to wait and see. :)

    Thanks so much for following me, I'm following back! I love your blog background! THe rose is so pretty!

    1. Hi Eileen,
      Nice to meet you!! Thanks for stopping by and for following me :).
      Yeah Twilight is not for everyone. I think people either love it or hate it-no in between. Oh thanks about the background of my blog-It was just a standard one but I liked it!! Thanks again.

  12. 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!

    1. Hi Maeva,
      Nice to meet you!! Thanks for following. I will check out your FF next. I have actually never read either of these books!! But I have seen the movies for each and loved them!! Thanks again for stopping by.

  13. I agree, the movies were terrible! I can't stand Kristen Stewart though, she's a horrific actress. I think she's what ruined them for me. Although Breaking Dawn part 1 wasn't too bad. But I must say (don't hate me) that Taylor Lautner is better than Robert!!! Haha. Thanks for stopping by, I returned the follow :)

    1. Hi Jessi,
      Thanks for stopping by and for following. Nice to meet you! I am not a big fan of Kristen Stewart either and I agree she is a bad actress!! I liked her the most in Breaking Dawn part 1 and I can't wait to see what they do for part 2!! I don't hate you for liking Taylor Lautner instead, you can't help it that you have bad taste in men!! LOL :):) Thanks again.

    1. Hi Christy,
      Thanks for stopping by. I almost didn't even think about Breaking Dawn because it didn't seem that long to me when I read it. I like the Twilight saga so maybe that is why. The books are much better then the movies. Thanks again.
