Book Blogger Hop and Follow Friday 8/19




Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop is a fun meme hosted at Crazy For Books. Check it out and join in!



This week's question:
“What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?” (Note: I’m putting one caveat on this question. You aren’t allowed to say the Bible, Torah, Qur’an, or other religious/spiritual text.)




Answer:
This is an easy one. It's either The Crippled God by Steven Erickson, or one of Robert Jordan's books in The Wheel of Time Series. Epic and High Fantasy books tend to be long winded :-) I don't mean that bad, by the way. Those are two author's that I love reading. I don't always feel up for an 'epic' read (or have the time to invest in it), so I can also appreciate shorter novels. Longer doesn't always mean better!




Feature and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee. It's a great way to find new blogs and meet new bloggers.


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


A. I have two. First, Nynaeve from RJ's Wheel of Time Series. She is my favorite female character in those books, and I've always thought it would be awesome to face-off with one of the Forsaken. Plus my hubby says we have similar tempers? Not true, of course :-) Second, I have to be totally honest. Bella Swan. I really shouldn't have to explain this one! And I know I'm not the only one that chose her, right?

Interesting you chose the heroine, I chose the hero. Although I chose a very sexy vampire for my hero.

I really agree with Bella Swan. I seriously thought that Stephenie Meyer spied on my 17-year-old self!!!
