BTT: If I Could I Would But I Don’t Know How
A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
If you had to choose to live within a novel, which would it be?
Oh, this is a tough one. I tend to read a lot of books that take place abroad or involve travel so that makes the decision hard. I think that out of the recent past, I’d pick The Bungalow (1940’s Bora Bora, anyone?) or The Scorpio Races (something about Irish cliffs and magic that just does not say “uncool” to me). Now both of the stories, themselves, had seriously violent and disturbing elements but the settings in each are just, um, to die for.
As far as pure story line, I’d pick anything by Libba Bray. Her Gemma Doyle series is still one of my favorites and Going Bovine, frankly is my favorite.
Character wise? Well, obviously, I’d pick to be Rob Jordan in For Whom the Bell Tolls. But that’s just par for the course, right? Right.
Basically, I’d be a white male created white male character in war-torn Spain, transported to the setting of a chick-lit book with the plotline of a YA novel. There’s a reason my mom calls me her little anomaly.
