This week's book blogger hop question is:
“What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?”
Off the top of my head, I think it's Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. According to goodreads it's 870 pages. It's funny because this one is probably my least favorite of the Harry Potter books, but it's the longest! I think it may be one of the shortest of the movies, though. What's your longest read?
The TGIF question is:
The Reviews We Don't Write:
Have you ever read a book and not wanted to review it? Are some books too personal that we want to keep our thoughts our own?
I actually only review a fraction of the books I read, for a variety of reasons. (You can see the full list of what I've read here) One is because I always want reading to be fun, and sometimes I just want to read a book without thinking about what I'll say in a review. The Wings series has been like that for me. They're just fun, silly books. Maybe if I thought about them too hard I would like them less?
I also don't review lesser-known books that I didn't like. Negative reviews aren't very fun for me to write. The only reason I give negative reviews to better known books (Graceling, Wither, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) is so that people can get a feel for what I like and don't like, and see if it's similar to their tastes.
