Book Blog Hop

Time to Hop!

One of the things I’ve been trying to do a lot of since starting this blog is check out other awesome book review blogs and get involved in some of the weekly challenges and prompts they use.

Today I’m going to be taking part in the Book Blogger Hop! This is currently active over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer and bloggers all over the sphere get involved to answer the prompt, visit some of the other responses, and make new connections!

This week’s prompt comes from Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews (again!) and she asked: “Do you read books over 400+ pages?”

And my answer is: Absolutely. Especially because I love fantasy, there’s no way I could read all the books I want to read and still avoid the long ones. That just isn’t possible in that genre. Plus some of my favorite books are over 400 pages. I’d hate to miss out just because of a page count. I may strategically time them, depending on what other books I’m reviewing, but I definitely still read them.

What about you? Do you edit your lists depending on how long a book is?

Let me know in the comments!

  1. Fantasy novels are good examples of books one can easily get lost in and not realize the size of a book. So many of them are pretty big–and oh, so good! Have a great weekend!

  3. This is a really good question.

    I have to be honest and say that books with this many pages does tend to put me off, 200-300 seems to be my average. Thatโ€™s not to say I havenโ€™t read longer and really enjoyed them, there are at least half a dozen books on my Goodreads 5 star rating shelf that are over 400.

    I think it helps if thereโ€™s enough going on in the plot to keep me engaged, for example, Blade of Darkness by Dianne Duvall was 541 pages long and I absolutely loved it and devoured every page! The same with Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia which is a whopping 735 pages long.

    1. I agree! They do tend to be intimidating, but it helps a lot when every page is full of things happening. Thatโ€™s so awesome you loved those! Iโ€™m definitely going to check them out. Thanks for stopping by!
