The lovely Keira has a new blog called Headphones and Hyperboles and I think she deserves some followers over there! So, I was very happy when she tagged me for the Adventure Book Tag, which in turn gave me a chance to link back to her post. Definitely don’t forget to also head over to her blog!
Which character would you love to go on an adventure with?
I want to go on an adventure with Mark Watney (The Martian). I know that the guy is entertaining as heck and should we ever, for whatever reason that surely has nothing to do with me being an incompetent bean, get into a life-threatening predicament, I am pretty confident we’d survive because of him. The man lived isolated on Mars and came back alright, I think putting my faith in him isn’t too bad of a decision.
If you could be any character for the day, who would you be and why?
This was a tough call! I think my decision was lastly heavily influenced by the fact that I am currently reading the third book in the Jackaby series, but I’d want to be Abigail Rook. She basically the Watson to a supernatural Sherlock and gets to experience all kinds of strange things. I am not sure how cool I’d be with living in the past, but electricity was invented at least. She has fancy dresses and gets to flirt with the ever so charming Charlie Cane. Even if it was just for a day, I think it would be fun.
What book is on your TBR bucket list?
One day, some day I really want to finish S. by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst. It’s such a fascinating book, with riddles and fold out maps and trinkets hidden in the pages. It’s truly interactive and maybe three stories in one? As interesting as it is, it’s just super hard to read at the same time.
Which book has a contemporary setting you would love to go to?
As cheesy, silly, over the top, predictable, repetitive, etc. Nicholas Sparks’ books are, they make North Carolina sound really pretty. I would like to see their coast for real one day, although it is by far not on top of my travel list.
Which book has a fantasy/fictional setting you would love to go to?
People who know me, know that I have quite a thing for Alice in Wonderland, so that’s a world I would LOVE to see. I’d probably go mad there with all the riddles and nonsense, but it would be a magical experience nonetheless.
What book or book edition would you do anything to get your hands on?
How bad is it that I cannot think of a single book!? I do have a couple signed books at home that I probably wouldn’t want to loose, just like I wouldn’t want to trade my editions of the books I put post-its in to highlight my favourite passages, but I wouldn’t go and do anything crazy for any book out there.
Name a character who is very adventurous and daring.
Prince Elian from To Kill a Kingdom seems pretty willing to do risky stuff to me. The dude fancies himself a pirate (which I do have my quarrels with. I am pretty sure he is just a sailor, but if it makes him happy, so be it) and pirates are notoriously daring.
Name the craziest or weirdest place you’ve ever read a book.
I … I … I don’t know? I don’t want to sound boring but I just honestly don’t think any of the places I read at was that crazy. I did bring a book to a school dance once … but it was more of a precaution, I didn’t actually end up reading it.
