10 Days of Blogging

If you could live inside a book, which book would you pick? Which world would you pick? I have a couple that would be on my shortlist of worlds/ books to live in.

1 The Starless Sea – How lovely to live in a subterranean library under the earth. Surrounded by books and cats and readers and words…lovely! The bibliophile in me says yes please.

2 The Night Circus – Another Morgenstern, but as a child I secretly (or not so secretly) wanted to run away and join the circus, and this circus with its black and white color scheme and super magical origin just pulls my soul right in. I would absolutely accept just being a girl who runs a concession stand.

3 Discworld – Specifically, I would want to be one of the witches even though it looks like a lot of hard work. I just love the world that Terry Pratchett created and I would love to be a part of it. I like to think Terry lives there too, so maybe I could finally meet him.

4 Newford – This is the setting for many of the books by Charles De Lint where fairies, old gods and the modern world meet. Would love to have tea with Jilly and meet the Crow Girls. Please?

5 The Hollows Cincinnati/ Chicago in Dresden Files – I am putting these together, because they feel like very similar worlds. This is another set of pretty modern but add magic, urban fantasy wonderland and I would love to live in either one.

When I was younger I might have added Narnia to this list, but it doesn’t seem as great for an adult. Wonderland also might have made the list, but doesn’t appeal as much to me any more. There are other worlds that have lost some shine for me over the years. MiddleEarth I would take only if I got to live in Hobbiton.

I have undoubtedly forgotten some, but this is a good beginning list. How about you? Thoughts?

  1. 1. Narnia. It still appeals to me after all these years… Maybe this is why I write children’s books with talking animals in them quite often?
    2. Hogwarts. I’m still waiting for my letter. I may be only a couple of years short of 40, but I haven’t given up hope, and I wait for it every year.
    3. The worlds created in the Atlantis Grail series by Vera Nazarian. I love the idea of a technology controlled by song, but also the main male character, Aeson, is the top contender for my book boyfriend.
    4. Discworld. I’d love to meet The Librarian, but also I love the witches in his series too.
    5. Since you put them together I’m going to too: I’d love to be part of the Hollows and Dresden Files worlds. I know there’s a whole load of scary demonic/monster activity going down, but I’d love to be a part of the magic in it. Especially the Holows books, since Kisten and Trent are also on my book boyfriends list.
    6. The Outlander books. OK, so the war I’d end up dealing with wouldn’t be fun, but Jamie would be there, and he’s number two on my book boyfriend list (the list goes Aeson, Jamie, Kisten, Trent, if you’re interested).
