I really like this Thursdays BTT post.
Are there any particular worlds in books where you’d like to live?
The Harry Potter world. Sorry but that’s the first thing that comes to my mind. Talking letters, owls as pets, flying broomsticks, teachers who turn into animals, a school as great, everything thing except ‘You know who’. And may be one of Nora Roberts magical novels set in Ireland. Meeting my handsome Prince and fighting the demons with him.
Another novel that comes to my mind is ‘Pride and Prejudice’. I mean I am not really interested in the other stuff, but I wish I could be Elizabeth and just live the Mr. Darcy part. I remember he was my first book crush before Rhett from ‘Gone with the wind’.
Don’t I sound (read) absolutely shallow?
Or where you certainly would NOT want to live?
Easy. The books that come to my mind are, ‘A thousand splendid suns’, ‘The book Thief’, ‘Not without my daughter’, ‘A million little pieces’. Many actually. It’s good to read about people who face difficult situations with courage and inner strength and emerge triumphant, but I would not wish lives like Laila, Mariam and Max even to my enemies.
What about authors? If you were a character, who would you trust to write your life?
I think Jodi Picoult. I love the way she writes. I love the depth and sensitivity of her writing, her way with words. Her first novel I read was ‘The tenth circle’. Though many people said it’s not that great a book, I liked it because it was my first and I loved her writing style. Then I read ‘My sisters keeper’ and fell in love with her. Now I plan to read everything written by Jodi Picoult. Say amen to that.
