Book Blogger Hop (31)

Yes, that's right...time again for the Book Blogger Hop! This awesome meme is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books and this week's question is, "If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?" 

Oh, good question! As much as I love fantasy, I think honestly I'd be terrified if I got plunked down into a world like Tamora Pierce's Tortall. I don't think I could swing a sword to save my life. And I am a huge fan of historical novels set in the Regency period, but actually living it? With all those hygiene issues and lack of medical knowledge? (Not to mention the corsets...) Not so sure about that.

So I think I'll go with a fun contemporary YA novel like Anna and the French Kiss (how can you go wrong with a boarding school in Paris?) or one of Jaclyn Moriarty's Ashbury-Brookfield books (I'd love to meet her characters, they're so fabulous!)

YA Through The Ages: 1900-1950 - this is the 2nd post in my "YA Through The Ages" series. What were teens reading in the early 1900s? And what book is considered by some to be the very first "YA" novel? Read it to find out!


  1. Good answers! You know, everyone talks about how they'd love to live in the Shire, or maybe the world of Harry Potter, but could we honestly do it with all those orcs and dementors? Probably not =)
    Happy Friday!

  2. Hopping by!

    Good Answer! Living in France with Etienne *swoon*

    I must say that part of your answer is eerie considering what I blogged about this Hoping Friday

  3. Oh, Anna and the French Kiss is a good choice. I'd love to travel with Etienne!!!

    Happy Hop,

  4. And the romance would be a nice plus too ;D

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I actually did (briefly) consider historical fiction as well, and dismissed for approximately the same reasons - no hot showers and stinky bodies everywhere are not exactly my cup of tea! :)

  6. Living in Anna and the French Kiss would be awesome, especially if I were Anna so I could have St. Claire all to myself. :)

  7. Yeah!!! Great answer. I'd love to be able to go to the boarding school with Anna and St. Claire. :)

  8. Haha, no, I don't think I like the idea of corsets either.


I love comments, so post away!
