Book Blogger Hop; Reading Books Over 400 Pages

It's Friday yet again and probably time for yet another Book Blogger Hop post, courtesy of Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The question of the week was "Do you read books over 400 pages?".
Personally, I do read them. A few of the longer books I've read and enjoyed includes The Alphabet House by Jussi Adler-Olsen, A Dark So Deadly by Stuart MacBride and Germinal by Émile Zola.


  1. I don't think that there will be any book lover that won't read books with more that 400 pages (I think, I hope!). Books are books, no matter how long ;) Have a nice weekend!

  2. Yes, I will read books of any length too. I don't consider the length to be a problem.

    1. Length don't bother me, unless it's obvious the author could do some editing on a book. :-P

  3. I agree with your answer! I also enjoy reading books over 400 pages!

    Here’s my Book Blogger Hop!

    I have to be honest and say that books with 400+ pages do tend to put me off, 200-300 is my average. I'm not a speedy reader and my time is precious. That’s not to say I haven’t read longer books and really enjoyed them because I have, there are at least half a dozen books on my Goodreads 5 star rating shelf that are over 400 pages long.

    I think it helps if there’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.

    I suppose the length of a book wont be a consideration when dealing with my favourite authors or those who I've read and enjoyed before but may cause me reluctance for new-to-me authors.

    1. I do see the issue with time if one is not a speedy reader. :-)
