Booking Through Thursday - Worlds and Authors

Are there any particular worlds in books where you’d like to live?

Well, I don't read much fantasy or books that involve other worlds. There are not really any places from books I would like to live, I am very much a homebody. But there are tons of places I would like to visit! So places that come to mind come from C.S. Lewis's Prelandra series and also Pullman's His Dark Materials series.

I get this sensation much stronger when I am watching a movie than I do when I when I am reading. I got it strongly when I saw The Shipping News and it made me buy the book. I wanted to see how the location was captured in text. But I had a hard time getting into the book and still haven't read it.

When I read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil I went on a book tour of Savanah and that was amazing and interesting. I think it would be fun to do more things like that. Experience places I read about.

Or where you certainly would NOT want to live?
Recently when I read The Luxe I felt very lucky to have not lived in the confinement of their era.

Books about Nazi Germany and other effected areas make me happy I was not alive and witnessing these struggles first hand.

There are books about the south that make me want to go there, make me think I will love it. Example: Ya Ya Sisterhood. Reality, while I would love to visit Savanah again and a few other places I definitely never want to live in the south. It is was too insanely humid for me.

What about authors? If you were a character, who would you trust to write your life?
I adore Pat Conroy and I would trust him to either make me crazier than I am or show me as I really am, and I am implying those might be the same things. I only started reading him less than a year ago and the way that he write whispers into my heart. It says, yes, this is the type of writing you have been waiting all your life for!

  1. I didn't think of Pat Conroy. His characters are usually "real" people. Good choice!
