I was really excited to be invited by Chey, Inky, and Megan to participate in the second outing of their new Novel Thoughts meme! They're featuring my question this week. I'm flattered *blushes, shuffles feet*
You can see their answers to the Question of the Week below....Just click the links:
What is Novel Thoughts? Every two weeks, a bookish question is asked and answered. The goal is lots and lots of discussion, so please COMMENT AWAY! :) I really do want to hear your answers:
QUESTION: If you could live in the world of any book, which would it be? And which fictional world would scare you the most if you woke up there tomorrow?
First, I want to live in a post-Deathly Hallows world. I wouldn't want to drop right into the struggle between Voldemort and Harry where Death Eaters are running around and all that scariness. But after all that was settled? I would love to be a witch. (Obviously, I don't want to be in the Harry Potter world if I'm just a muggle...) The first magic thing I'd really work on learning would be housekeeping spells. You know when Mrs. Weasley is using spells to get things ready around The Burrow before Fleur and Bill's wedding?? I guess it shows my age and that I'm an overwhelmed at-home mom and terrible housekeeper, but I remember thinking: That is the most wonderful thing I've ever read! lol!
As for what fictional world would scare my socks off?? A lot of them, actually, since I'm a big 'fraidy cat. But I'm going to go with the post-Apocalyptic bad-angel filled world of Angelfall by Susan Ee. Not only are there angels terrorizing humanity, but--as it is prone to do--humanity is terrorizing itself as well! If you're not in danger of getting kidnapped by angels for nefarious purposes (I'm trying not to get spoilerific with this!) then you're in danger of roaming gangs of people wanting to do you harm in various forms. And what happened to the kids???? People who have read this book, I KNOW you know what I'm talking about. Those who haven't, if you have a strong stomach and a pretty high horror tolerance, read it. The book is marvelously paced, the characters are complicated and engaging, and I don't know when I've read a book that played out more vividly in my head, like I was watching a movie. (Sometimes, I wanted to close my eyes I was so freaked out, but sadly, one can't read with closed eyes...and I was desperate to finish and see what happened!)
Alright, comment time! What fictional worlds would you love to live in? And which ones would scare you to death??
