Weekend bbok blog hop via Crazy-for-books.com

Book Blogger Hop

 "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?"
 
Oh this is a hard question... and a good one. I have a few that I could spend the day with.
 
First would be in the book of "Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follet. I find that time frame interesting with all the royalness (no this has nothing to do with all the hype of the royal wedding, sorry). I find all the primitive stuff interesting. The building of the church, the interaction of the people of the town and the royal families and priors. I loved that book and I think that it would just be fun, for one day, to experience that life, the simplicity.
Pillars of the Earth - With New Preface (ISBN10: 0451207149; ISBN13: 9780451207142)
 
Second would be a more recent book, "Private Scars" by Brenda Youngerman. I just recently reviewed this book and I would love to spend the day with the main character, Nancy. She seem to just need a HUG! She needs someone to just whisk her away for a few day into a safe haven and give her a break from her life.


I also would love to be in the Debbie Macomber book "The Good Yarn". I am a huge and passionate person for crocheting. It is so very relaxing to sit and create something with a needle and yarn for someone special. To go and sit and listen to the store "The Good Yarn", listen to all the beautiful characters in the book, to see a store filled with yarn and not be just in a section in Michaels or Joann's. To learn from other lovely ladies about their live or their crafty projects would be fun.

  2. 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.

  4. I haven't read any of the books you mentioned, although they sound as if they have wonderful settings, all of which would be fun to visit. I said Hogwarts like everyone else because, well, why WOULDN'T you want to visit there for a day?

    Glad to have found you via the Hop!
