Follow Me Friday! (21)


Follow Me Friday
is hosted by Parajunkee over at Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. This is a chance to get to know fellow book bloggers as well as follow their blogs. If you'd like to join in the fun, create your own Follow Me Friday post, then visit this week's Follow Friday posts (here and here) and sign the linky. Don't forget to also follow this week's featured bloggers!

Q: If you had to spend eternity inside the pages of a book which book would you choose and why?

Easy peasy! Harry Potter of course! No question. Going to Hogwarts, getting my first wand, learning to fly, brewing potions (which I'd probably suck at, honestly), instant travel, interacting with magical creatures...and so much more! Oh, I always get sad after answering these questions that it's not actually possible...as far as I know!

Now, as Harry Potter is no doubt such a common answer (nothing wrong with that, of course! What's not to love, right?), some other books I'd gladly get lost in would be Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus, and J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. A resounding YES to any of those. The magic, the intrigue, the characters, even the battles...sign me up please!

How about you? What book would you choose to spend eternity within?
