Follow Friday & The Blog Hop (5): Write Yourself In & Longest Book

This is a really small post, I’m going to keep it short today and then get back to reading so I can review this book by Sunday of this week :)
Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee.
This week’s question is:

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?
I’m a pretty boring person actually, I feel like if I were written into a book I’d be that quiet girl in the back of the classroom at school. 

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books.
This week's question is:

Q. “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).
I’m pretty sure the longest book I’ve ever read was the Breaking Dawn which is 756 pages.  I tend to read little books, so I can read more of them in the same amount of time.  

What’s the longest book you’ve ever read?

  2. 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 http://www.howardsherman.net and follow along the logic with me!

  5. Hi, few follower her for the hop. I think the longest book I're read is the last Harry Potter (or maybe Breaking Dawn is longer?)

  6. Liza - You're totally fine, HP 5 is the longest in the HP series and has BD beat by like 120 pages :)

  7. I thought about Breaking Dawn but decided that since it didn't seem as long as The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo, I wouldn't use it. LOL!

  9. The quiet girl in the back of the class is usually the one who discovers she has a secret power or is heir to a secret dynasty. :)

  10. Yeah, I totally agree with Jennifer! So you should tell us what your secret magical daydreams are! Because I'm willing to bet you're sitting in the back of that classroom quietly having some incredible adventures! Lol.

    I think the longest book I've read is, actually, the fifth Harry Potter book. And everyone's right -- it IS longer thant "Breaking Dawn". I found both to be just AWESOME!!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!! : )
