Book Blogger Hop: May 20 - 23, 2011
The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer from Crazy for Books. This week's hop question is:
"If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?"
This should be an easy question to answer but it's really not. There are a few series of books that come immediately to mind for me with fictional worlds that I love. J.D. Robb's 'In Death' series, The world created by Madeleine L'Engle in A Wrinkle in Time and most recently, I loved Deborah Harkness' world in A Discovery of Witches.
The above fictional worlds are very strong contenders but I do have a number one choice for a fictional place to spend a day. And that would be Hogwarts in J.K. Rowling's much loved Harry Potter series. I'm reading the first book - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - to my children and falling in love with the wizarding world all over again. It's extra magical experiencing that world through the eyes and imaginations of my kids. So yeah, my day would have to be at Hogwarts.
