This week’s Booking Through Thursday question is:
Are there any particular worlds in books where you’d like to live?
Or where you certainly would NOT want to live?
What about authors? If you were a character, who would you trust to write your life?
(This came to me when reviewing a Jonathan Carroll book – I’m not sure I’d like to live in the worlds of his books.)
I’ll do this in list form:
- Any magical world: Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, etc. But only if I could have magic or have a cool daemon. I think my daemon is a fox, so that’d be cool.
- Back in the day: Gone With the Wind, The Crimson Petal and the White, etc. The only problem with these worlds is you have to shit in a pot. No thanks. Very unladylike.
- The Handmaid’s Tale. Definitely a sucky world to live.
- First choice on a world to live in? A world that had The Wednesday Sisters in it. If I could be friends with them, then that would be enough. Friends can make or break your world.
