Follow Friday Number Something (lost count)







Follow Friday is just awesomeness. It's hosted by the lovely Parajunkee & Alison Can Read

Now this week is very special because it's the week before Christmas (Yes! Finally! I can have my Kindle! *happy dances*) but more importantly I'm one of this week's featured blogs!!! So before I actually answer the question I want to thank Rachel and Alison for the opportunity. :)

Now this week's question is:

Q: If you had to spend eternity inside the pages of a book which book would you choose and why?

Good question. Errr... I think there are a lot of books that I'd like to live in but if I had to spend forever in a book series I'm gonna be really obvious and choose Harry Potter. I like to think that I'd be a really powerful and cool wizard and that Harry would have to admit I am the greatest. (I won't lie. I'm making this up as I go along.)

Failing that, I think I'd live in the Fallen series by Lauren Kate... I could use those shadow thingies (It's been a while. I can't remember what they're called.) to jump into other books. (Technically, that's probably cheating isn't it?)

Fine! (I will get a book that I can happily stay in forever.) I will live in Alice In Wonderland! I will live there because it's a crazy world that would keep me occupied.

Okay, so choosing a book didn't take long at all... Oh, who am I kidding? It took forever!!!

So I'm a tad exciteable (sorry!) and I think it's probably a good idea to stop now. So I want to wish you all a Happy Christmas. I hope you all get tons of bookish presents and if you just leave me your blog link I'll hop around and follow you all.

I just recently read that book! It was so good! I have to get the next book ASAP. Great answer! New follower! :D

elena said...

Hee, I said Harry Potter too! I feel like that's going to be a popular response. Alice in Wonderful would be interesting to live in too! I'd feel like I'd be confused a lot of the time though. I just followed you. :)

Rebecca said...

Ohhh what a great answer! I love Alice. :D Pretty interesting living there, for sure.

Congratulations on being featured! I'm a new follower. Hope you have a fantastic holiday weekend! And an early Merry Christmas!

Harry Potter sprang to my mind as well! Alice in Wonderland is a good choice, but I think I might end up eaten by the Bandersnatch...or with my head cut off :-)

Congrats on the feature! :) I had picked Harry Potter as my first choice as well, but I figured a lot of people were going to choose that. I think Alice in Wonderland would be an awesome place to live! You'd never get bored. New follower, by the way!

Anna said...

I'm probably one of the only ones who wouldn't want to be in Harry Potter forever. It would get monotonous without the Big Bad to fight, and I wouldn't want to be there forever with Voldy on the other hand! Good answer though. New follower. Check me out at:

Cassie S. said...

LOL. Nice way to do it. Just use the shadows in the 'Fallen' series. That's a great way to do it.

For me I would have to say I would stay in the 'Vampire Academy' world. I LOVE Dimitri Belikov. That's my dream guy right there. =D

My link is here if you would like to take a look at my FF. =D

Kris said...

new follower! I understand your dilemma... im still trying to choose mine and I got it down to Harry Potter and Fallen too. I guess it all comes down to, do you want to live or have a battle with evil to fight every day,hehe.

Hi, and CONGRATS on being one of the featured blogs this week!!

I'm a new follower, and would like to compliment you on your blog -- it's BEAUTIFUL!!!

You know, I, too had a difficult time choosing one book. One of the ones I chose, though, was the Harry Potter series! So I totally agree with you there! These are indeed wonderful books to live in!

The Fallen series is another great choice! I'd love to be Luce, and have Daniel to fall in love with, over and over again!! Lol.

I hope you and your family have a WONDERFUL Christmas!!

I didn't pick Harry Potter, instead I went with Andre Norton's fictional world. Norton was my first love in the world of science fiction, and I'll always want to sign on with a free trader and explore the far reaches of the galaxy.
