Follow Friday (10)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

Question of the week: If you had to spend eternity inside the pages of a book, which book would you choose and why?

I get the feeling people are going to say Twilight, and to be honest the only reason I would want to live in that world is that Washington seems like a very beautiful place. Otherwise, no thank you. Way too much drama. I have two books where I'd love to live inside the pages, and that's the Harry Potter series and The Mortal Instruments books. 

Why Harry Potter? You have to admit that the moment you started this series, you wish you were Harry, whether you were a boy or a girl. Every kid wants magic to be real, and because people my age (over 18) basically grew up with the series and being the same ages as the characters, it was very easy to relate. But mostly, I think it's the idea that you could go away to a magical castle after thinking you're just a normal human. I think we were even willing to put up with the Dursley's if it meant we got to use magic and go to Diagon Alley.

Why The Mortal Instruments? I've always loved the world of the Shadowhunters. Despite all the darkness of it, I think it'd be awesome to be Nephilim. They have the coolest adventures and rich history. There's a kind of magic to it, even if it's not magic like it is in Harry Potter. But like Harry Potter, it has this place where they can use their angelic powers with other people like them. Also, any world with Jace is a world worth living in, even if he's in love with Clary. At least he'd be a good laugh.

What about you guys? What books would you love to live in? Tell me in the comments section or link me your FF


  1. I considered Hogwarts and Harry Potter but I'm such an Austen fan I had to opt for one of her classics.
