TGIF: My Literary Vacation! Where Would You Go?

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!

Today’s Question: 

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!

What would be your ideal Literary Vacation?

Last week I had so much fun with this! I read so many great book-loving-blogs!

Yay for Parajunkee & Alison Can Read!

Now I’m back for more Follow Friday fun!

This week’s question is a tough one for me!

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

Wow! Just one? Boo!

My first two thoughts were Harry Potter & the world of Mortal Instruments! Both are amazing worlds full of endless depth & magic! Oh, how I long to be magical…for as long as I can remember, actually!

But to choose Harry or Jace…hmmmm. Tough call!

Both are magical, mysterious, and super awesome!

I may need to think on this for a while longer!

What book world would you choose?

For the love of magic!

When I was very small, I remember getting in trouble quite often for squinting my eyes like Jeanie and wrinkling up my nose like Samantha to zap or change something (my mom was a likely target, I must admit). I have always wanted to be magical-to have witch powers. Each year on my birthday, and sometimes even still, I wonder if this is the year when my magic will find me.

Tomorrow I’ll go see the final Harry Potter movie (too grumpy when I’m tired to hit the midnight showing & even though he’ll never admit it, Schmoopy really wants to see it, too!). For me, it is that magic that I’ve always wanted, but in a very real way.

I love magic. I love HP! If that makes me a dork, a dreamer, a geek, or a rock star…well, I just don’t care. I love it and I’m proud and thankful to have grown with these books and films so near to my heart and so real in my imagination.
