I heard about this cool Friday question from Smash Attack Reads! I love her awesome book blog!
Today she posted about GReads! TGIF Question and I loved it! So, today I’m playing along!
Literary Vacations: If you could take a trip this summer to any place within a fictional book, where would you go? Tell us about your summer dream vacation!
My answer came pretty quickly, which is funny because I am so not decisive!
I would totally choose Hogwarts! I’ve wanted to be a witch my whole life! Every year on my birthday, I (not so secretly) hope that this will be the year that I get my powers (yup, still hopeful after all these years). My mom teases me and always asks every birthday if it happened. Alas, no such luck yet!
I would LOVE it at Hogwarts. I would totally bring my cat Yankee with me. She’d love it! Poor Shakespeare would have to stay at home, he just isn’t magical enough (sorry Shakes!). I would be all over that castle, checking out every room, trying out new potions and spells, and staying away from Snape and Filch! It would be EPIC! I just know that I’d be an excellent witch and totally rock that whole place!
This September, we went to NYC for a family reunion and were lucky enough to see Harry Potter: The Exhibition at Discovery Times Square. I loved seeing all the props, costumes, and pictures from the movies. I got to sit in Hagrid’s chair, throw a Quaffle in the Quidditch area, and pull a Mandrake! It was so awesome! We haven’t made the trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™, at Universal’s Islands of Adventure® theme park yet, but it is on my Oh My Gosh We Need To Do This!! List! We really need to make that happen soon!
I really want to be a part of that world, especially now that Voldemort isn’t a threat!
