On BTT this week:
If you had to choose to live within a novel, which would it be?
This is a difficult question since I do read books which are realistic and fantastical.
When I was a child, I wanted to be Wendy in Peter Pan and Lucy in Lion, the Witch in the Wardrobe. I also really liked the idea of having a daemon in the His Dark Materials trilogy. Though the problem with fantasy-adventure books is how dangerous they are for the characters.
Also, I read a lot of historical fiction, but if anyone ever asks me if I would go back in time, I still wouldn’t know what era to choose. All things in the past had their good (clothing, chivalry, food) and bad (lack of women’s rights, lack of toilet paper). For example, I really like Pride and Prejudice and most people seem lovely in it, but I can’t imagine wanting to live as a Regency woman.
Alright, I think it’s best to stick with the children’s books so Harry Potter post-Voldemort and the world of the Winnie the Pooh.
What about you?
