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?

One of my new favourite series is the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne  – the books (Hounded, Hexed and Hammered) are a really appealing mix of magic, action and humor I think I admit to having a crush on Atticus. So I think I’d cast myself as his love interest  who can wield a bit of kickass magic, scratch Oberon’s belly and then soothe Atticus’s weary (and buff) body.

Book Blogger HopThe question at Crazy For Books this week is

“What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?”

Hmm I’ve read several books that were well over 1000 pages but probably the longest would be A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth – the mass paperback is 1,479 pages in tiny 8pt type. It’s a monster of a book that I read the year it was published – back in 1993.

    Good idea! It’s always better when you can have a hot man around as well :)
    Although i’d have to say i have a bit of a thing for Barrons (Fever series), he may be a jerk, but he’s a hot one
    Have an awesome weekend, and stop by if you can, i love meeting new people!

      I did actually but it is fairly heavy going simply because it is so long. It’s something you have to really commit to.

    I have not heard of the Iron Druid chronicles before, but if it has a character named Oberon in it maybe I should pick them up.
