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!)
