Book Blogger Hop, Question 1

As a fun new thing, I will be participating (when I remember) in the Book Blogger Hop, which I discovered via Heidi at Paper Adventures. Every Week, a new question is posted on Friday.

Book Blogger Hop
Clearly, books throw one happening party!

This week’s question is: “If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?”

For me, there really is no contest for me. There are any number of books I would love to reside in (forever or just for a vacation…I feel a top ten list coming at some point!), but one stands out amongst them.

My book/series of choice is, of course, Harry Potter. How could I go anywhere else? To this day, I still daydream about living in that world. Lucky folks that you are, I will share a bit of my delightful fantasy.

I will be, quite unsurprisingly, a witch, a mighty talented one, too. Transfiguration is my best subject (hells, yeah! – I fully intend to be an animagus), followed by Charms. Unfortunately for me, I suck at Potions, which, in the early years, means I would have to endure some hellish Snape anger. (In my fantasy, I really wanted to say I rocked everything, but, given my epic fail when confronted with chemistry labs in high school, I couldn’t take it seriously if I did that). I would be in Ravenclaw. Oh, and I always imagined that I transferred to Hogwarts from an American wizarding school. I also want myself some Fred Weasley. (Can you tell how much thought has been spent on this?!?)

How about you, dear reader? Anyone else build some ridiculously elaborate fantasies about actually being in a book you loved?

  1. Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

    My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

    But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to http://www.howardsherman.net to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!

    Harry Potter is a good answer. I think I’m a little old to fit in though …

    Harry Potter is a great answer. I wish I had thought of it!
