Book Blogger Hop (May 20-23, 2011)


Book Blogger Hop



This meme is hosted by Crazy-For-Books. Please click the button above to check out the complete rules.

This week's question: If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be and what would that place be?


Answer: I didn't have to think too hard about this one.   It's going to sounds really geeky and perhaps cliche but the book(s) I would want to spend the day in is The Lord of the Rings trilogy.  I would love to spend the day in Middle Earth, more specifically, Rivendell.  The description enchanted me, with the kingdom built into the trees and connected by bridges, the fairy lights, the songs of the elves.  To be honest, I read it a long time ago and maybe I'm taking some of my memories from the movie, but my answer stands.  Just like Samwise, I've always wanted to "...see the elves."

I would so like to see the elves as well. I read the books and while it's lovely, I prefer the movie version because Hugo Weaving is there. I love him, he is so awesome. Are you looking forward to The Hobbit?

I chose Diagon Alley from Harry Potter. I'm not sure what's more cliche than that. :)

I hadn't even thought about Middle Earth, but you're right, that would be incredible. I'd love to follow the path the fellowship take - although without the constant theat of danger!

Nice choice with Middle Earth - I went with Clive Barker's Weaveworld.

I've been mulling over this question now for about three hours. Picking just one is never easy for me. I've read so many wonderful books over the years. Come see what I chose.

Amber Griffiths said...

I haven't read the LOTR books yet, so I can't say I'd love to visit that world! Although the movies do make most of it look beautiful, especially the elf... palace? Kingdom?

Anyway - Have a great weekend!

Happy Hop Day!

I haven't read the books but have seen the movies countless times and yes, I would have to agree :)

Have a great weekend.

Kate said...

Great choice, although I wouldn't mind living in a cute little round hobbit home for a bit as well. :)

I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected – http://www.howardsherman.net

Just hopping by and wanted to say hello. Rivendell is a good choice. Seems like you could sit by a waterfall and read all day if you wanted. Good stuff. I'll make sure to keep up with the site.

Ah yes! I could totally do Rivendell. I'd love to have big hobbit feet and go prancing around Middle Earth. Great choice
