Follow Friday (15)

Happy Friday, everybody!


Time to do some love sharing!

I'm participating in two Follow Friday Blog Hops.

The first one is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. Both of them are featuring new blogs. Blogs which are featured this week are: Belle Books and Stuck In Books . Feel free and visit their blogs and follow them!

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?

Fiction based on my autobiography. It might sound like vanity, which it probably partially is, but I believe that my life has been so eventful and colorful, so it would definitely be a bestseller. One could write several books about it actually. It could definitely be a romance, historical fiction, YA, travel book, adult, non-fiction, adventure. It won't probably represent crime and paranormal and cook books though, otherwise most of the other genres could be there, even horror. One could write it like a comedy, like a drama, like a tragedy - possibilities would be endless, because I have experienced a lot!!!
 
Now to the second hop I am participating at. It's hosted by http://crazy-for-books.com/.

Book Blogger Hop

Question of the week: “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.)

My answer:

Diplomacy (A Touchstone book)The Downing Street Years

Henry Kissinger's Diplomacy which had 912 pages or Margaret Thatcher's The Downing Street Years which also had 912 pages!!! I read them both when I studied international relations and I have to admit that I loved both books!
The longest poetry book I've read is actually "Estonian Ballads". It's a poetry anthology and it is exactly 840 pages!!! And yes, I did read all the poems inside of it! I love poetry.


That's it!
