Book Blogger Hop, May 20 – 23, 2011

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. It is a great way of discovering new blogs and meeting fellow book bloggers, talking about books and authors, and sharing our love for literature.

Book Blogger Hop

This week’s question is: “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?”


There was a similar question on the Hop, I think, not so long ago, and my answer is similar, too. I know I’m being repetitive, but there just isn’t any other answer.

If I could spend a day in a fictional world it would be in the world of The Lord of the Rings. There are a lot of places in that world I’d like to visit (and some I’d definitely wouldn’t) but since there is one day limitation, I think a tour of Minas Tirith would be a great experience. I'd love to see the unique and magnificent setting and architecture of that beautiful city.  


  1. Great choice, that would be an amazing to place to go.

  2. Nice choice - if it was only for a day, and I knew I'd be coming home safely, I think I'd really like to check out Mount Doom.

  3. Is that the elves' home? If so, I agree that it would be amazing to visit! Thanks for visiting earlier.

  4. @ Sally: Mount Doom would be an interesting place to check, I agree, with the safety guaranty, of course:)

    @ Shirley: Minas Tirith is the capital of Gondor, where the elite race of Men lives. Oh, and how could I forget - Rivendell, that would be the elvish place to see!

  5. I want to meet Gandalf and Aragon, but mostly Farimir. Found you on Crazy for Books and following!

  6. Oooh, yes! Tolkien's world could be quite cool to live in .... especially Rivendell. :)

  7. Love your pick, it was mine to.

  8. i like your backdrop. have stop, hope by my way. having book giveaways and no need to be follower.just click on the blog tour tabs. happy reading.

  9. 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.

    Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected –

  10. Great answer! Thanks for hopping to us (The Paperback Princesses - Hanging out in the Lord of the Rings would be an interesting environment...walking Middle Earth on foot would suck though. :P

  11. Lord of the Rings would be fun.

    Stopping by from the Blog Hop.

    I would want to be in Louise Penny's fictional city of Three Pines.

    Stop by my blog if you like.


  12. Very good answer-as I know you are a cat person I invite you to come take a look at the new pics of my cats I added to my blog today

  13. I love LOTR! Minas Tirith would be a cool place place to visit, especially if Aragon and Farimir were there.

  14. I wouldn't leave The Shire at all.
